So basically his car was right outside the Pavonia PATH at around 8:30PM, some thug is hanging around, blind commuters (not literally, just heads down don't see nothing) headed home, lots of foot traffic to/from the mall, and said thug pops on a ski mask and jacks a M-B? Seems like he shows little/no fear of being confronted by either the PA or JCPDs, much less an armed citizen. (emphasis added)But crime is down, the city is taking steps to make us feel safer, Healy said so, from his perch at his son's bar last night at 11:30 pm . . . Oh, that's right, he has an armed escort, of course he feels safe.
