The account given of this story is why mainstream media is essentially useless. The perp is described as "of medium build and weight." Is he white, black, Latino, Asian? Why do they avoid full description? Because they are afraid of offending someone, they're afraid of being pounced by some designated victim cult.
There ought to be an "I'm being robbed" variation on the PIN code. And people should keep a can of wasp spray around, just in case.

I used to live at Meadowood. They have no security per se, but it's in a nice neighborhood. I'm not sure security gates or something like that would have helped, anyway. That kind of stuff mostly provides a false sense of security.
