  1. He’s a smart man for complying with the thugs demand. A much better story than when we read about someone who foolishly fights back against someone who is even potentially armed.

  2. Seriously I’m 2019 that’s the best picture we can get? Roller coasters get 1000 better shots while moving 100 times faster. Anyone’s phone would also. Why are security cameras which are the only thing the picture being taken is actually important is the quality so primitive?

  3. Joseph says he’s a smart man for paying the “street tax”. However, in the rest of America, everyone is carrying and the story always ends the same way. The mugger is shot and gets nothing. Least they don’t have to be smart for these obvious racially motivated robberies.
