Go outside and get some Vitamin D please.

What does that even mean here? Person posted a story about a stabbing in a DC McDonald's and your take is that OP is vitamin D deficient? In my experience with this phrase, the ratio of appropriate/applicable use vs misapplied or incredibly reaching and assumptive use is about 1 to 50, so at least you're not unique!

Nope. I hate it when people say that. But I’m not allowing fear to cloud my love of the city.

None- I just don’t live in a constant state of fear. I mean you may as well publish domestic violence cases too which most likely are more. That’s equally as important.

When the donestic abuser is similarly let off with no punishment would that get you motivated on this issue?

The original parent post asked the same thing then deleted their comment. My response remains the same. People need to ask themselves when crime posts like this are productive. If it is to serve as awareness, multiple news outlets including the police auto text reports and even the Nextdoor app have this. If you sit and read crime posts all day you really need to get out and realize that there are people walking around, and just living life without being attacked. There’s a fine line between creating hysteria and just being aware. Lots of commenters on here are living in this state and I sincerely feel bad for them so yeah, posts like this don’t really help. Oh and where did you get that I’m not interested/concerned in crime ? By telling someone to get some air isn’t me implying that I don’t care about crime( I’ve been jumped before by six kids)but there are other things going on in the city. And by the way, I am directly involved in making small impacts in the world. I volunteer with aged out foster kids who might otherwise turn to a life of crime if it weren’t for mentors.
