As VPD Chief Jim Chu said yesterday, property crime is rampant in our city. Just this morning, while riding past Sears on the 700-block of Howe street, I came upon a sturdy woman wrestling with a scrawny young man on the sidewalk. "Stop resisting! Stop resisting! You're under arrest!" she hollered while spider-wrestling her suspect to the sidewalk until her partner arrived to assist.
I turned around and caught a few seconds of footage. The blue bag at :08 is filled with the shoplifter's loot: several pairs of Kalvin Klein boxer shorts.
