One can be attacked in broad daylight at 3:30 pm as in the case of a kind black man, 65, who is known to my better half. This poor man was viciously kicked and assaulted in an unprovoked attack in a case of “the wrong time, wrong place” on his daily walk in Mill Woods.
In any case, no ordinary citizen, especially a friendly senior, needs this kind of nasty brazen assault while minding their own business, trying to get some air or exercise. Edmontonians should not kid themselves about the safety of our neighborhoods anymore these daze. Too many thugs, ‘animals’, and creeps on the streets at all hours of the day. Solitary walking continues to be a risky activity even in quiet neighborhoods.
Let’s hope the violent offender gets arrested and receives appropriate justice, not the usual namby-pamby stuff that goes on too often in Canadian courts (in contrast to American courts). * follow-up: A young black man has been arrested.
