    Thats just KRAZY. NYC has a HUGE problem with Cellphone/Smartphone thefts as well, not sure I've read about anyone getting killed though.

    You should read news feeds regularly, it will make your hair stand up on the back of your neck. This is a crazy world. I am stunned every day by some of the articles I read. There is good in the world, of course, but the crazies are what make the news. Look beyond the headlines, unbelievable stuff.

    I really don't think it is any worse now than in the past, we just live in an ultra connected world now, and unfortunately, bad news = high rantings

    People have been getting mugged and even killed for the equivalent of a few bucks since time immemorial. A good smartphone can be worth hundreds. It's not surprising that theft has become such a problem.

    Shocking to say the least, yet at the same time, here in Johannesburg South Africa this does happen, A LOT! Often hear stories of people being stabbed for their cellphone and wallet, there are even criminals who will walk around in traffic looking for people who's windows are open and have a cellphone sitting in their car which they can snatch, be it from your hands or somewhere accessible, cellphone theft is fast becoming a HUGE issue globally.

    There's just as much miserable news today as there was 300 years ago.
    Only we didn't hear about it then.

    And getting to be a bigger problem everyday because of the absurd growth of income and wealth inequality:
    the 85 richest people in the world today own more than the 3,5 billion poorest people of the planet combined.

    I'm almost surprised the gap isn't larger, but though I agree that the degree of inequality is outrageous, I'm far from convinced that's to blame for theft. Rich people steal all the time; they just typically don't do it with a gun on the street. I'm not going to get into a longer discussion about it though, because that's going to take us waaaaay off-topic.

    Theft is not the result of inequality.
    But inequality is the result of theft.
