Indianapolis Mayor Robbed in Detroit

The Mayor of Indianapolis was in Detroit to see the NCAA tournament when he was robbed as he walked backed to his hotel. That was a mistake:

Ballard had been walking to his hotel after watching a NCAA Final Four basketball tournament game when he stopped to help a man apparently having a seizure, a police report said.

Vane said while the mayor was attempting to aid the man, at least two additional men approached and surrounded Ballard.

Police told WRTV the men, including the individual who had appeared to been having a seizure, fled the scene.

"Almost immediately, Mayor Ballard realized that his phone had been taken," Vane said in a news release.

He's lucky only his cell phone was taken.

Good point, GianiD. Further to that, how come most of the worst states for literacy, teen pregnancy, STD infection, and infant mortality are Republican?

GianiD, either you failed your senior year social geography course, or (more likely) you never took one and are using words and concepts that exceed your understanding. Either way, you have no business discussing demographic trends.
