Robbers, San Jose Police Can Agree On One Thing

Categories: Crime

purse.jpgSan Jose Police are warning women to be careful of a group of purse snatchers they've dubbed with the catchy name "The Rippers", according to an ABC 7 report. (Perhaps this is in honor of famous fictional Bay Area resident, Jesse Katsopolis and his band, Jesse and the Rippers?) The robbers appear to target solitary Asian women. Why?

Police believe the suspects are targeting Asian women because they tend to carry cash.
Uh, really? Even if this is the kind of broad generalization that the robbers beleive, it seems a tad odd that police would validate it if only for the fact that would-be criminals might be taking notes.–Andy Wright
