45 minutes? I wish the the lady would have reported this incident right away so there is a chance this fool might have been caught before he attempts a grab at someone else's stuff - which might be something of actual value next time. Anyone brazen enough to approach someone and grab a bag in their hand is a potential danger to others in the community

Yeah, my comments on hoodie wearers got yanked.

Oh well. To be fair, the MV Voice staff are in a no-win battle to keep comments within reasonable boundaries while still allowing freedom of expression. However, the political correctness is out of control. We can get a description of what would-be poop thief was wearing but not of the thief. Seriously?

Puts a whole new meaning behind the saying, "Crime doesn't pay"....

Wow, I only asked if all comments that included [the name of a building in Mountain View where you can solicit labor during the daytime hours] are automatically censored, and it got deleted! How is that offensive?

There was no need for such bad behavior, I'm sure that if he had asked nicely she would have been happy to give him the bag.
