I was just outside briefly and the streets are empty. Normally this area is full of drunk yuppies and a sprinkling of crackheads but tonight the ratio is heavily weighted in favor of crackheads. It feels like 28 Days Later. I spotted a guy riding a bike and carrying another coming out of an area filled with $300,000.00 condos and suspected that he was stealing the bikes. I guess HPD did as well because they swooped in on him and took him down.
I don’t know if it’s looting exactly, I see thieves wheeling $1200.00 BBQ grills and bikes out of that area all the time, but the streets don’t feel quite safe near downtown.
