    2 robbed at gunpoint along downtown Indy canal

    It seems like earlier this year there was a near-identical story. Spoiler alert: the robbery happened at 0215!! That's after Midnight, nuff said! Attention yuppies who live on the Canal: situational awareness includes knowing the difference between 0215 and 1415 and maybe a risk assessment should take place before venturing outside.

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. Two people were robbed at gunpoint on the downtown canal walk early Wednesday morning.
    The incident happened near 650 Canal Walk at 2:15 a.m.


    According to a police, four men, at least three armed with guns, stole a credit card and a cell phone from a man and woman walking the canal. No one was hurt.

    "It's unfortunate that that happened, but no I don't feel unsafe at all, said Nathan Grile, who was walking the canal.
    On Thursday, runners, bikers and walkers enjoyed the weather unfazed by the early morning robbery.


    I feel like it should, but honestly no it doesn't, said walker Natalie Campbell when asked if the robbery made her feel less safe.


    While some were surprised by the news, others were not.


    "I don't feel as safe as I used to," said Stephanie Truchan while walking her dog. "Weve had some issues in the past few months.
    This year, police have responded to multiple robberies and reports of gunfire near the canal, one nearly every month of the year so far.
    It hasn't been as safe. I feel like there's a lot more people out kind of loitering at night and that has contributed to some of the crime, Truchan said.


    Thats why youll find a mobile surveillance camera set up right near the canal. It uses solar and regular power to provide a birds eye view in downtown hot spots. Every few weeks, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department moves it around to the areas where they get a lot of calls.


    The video feed from those cameras is accessible to my officers, to our front desk personnel at district roll call who monitor that, and it also shoots the image to homeland security, where they have officers who watch the cameras also, said Captain John Mann with IMPD's downtown district.


    On top of that, IMPD says they also increase bike and foot patrols on the canal during the summer. They say they also receive help on the canal from park rangers, IUPUI police, Capitol police, and the Marion County Sheriffs Office.

    "I come out here late when there's not a lot of people around and early in the morning sometimes, pretty much any time throughout the day," Grile said. "There's never really a specific time where I feel unsafe.

    Well, it's because they knew these men wouldn't hurt them! All they wanted was some money for a sandwich. The robbers are the victims after all. Victims of sis gendered, patriarchal, white privileged society!!

    Sounds like the thugs found a place with some easy marks.

    Kersey did it all the time; with a high degree of success I might add.
