    Have you ever drove down there on Orange street at night ? It's scarey. Men hanging out talking and cars driving slowly with men walking out to talk to whoever is in the car. The very Cops stay away from Orange street at night.I'm really not surprised about this robbery.There's a lot of young men walking around that think they've got game but really they need to be in the house with a tissue snotting their runny noses. They should know better than to cause their mom all this misery.
