    This is a sad situation, and I feel badly for the victim, but really, this is not at all unusual. The City should really consider enacting a curfew for everyone, because people are obviously not using common sense. Common sense = stay off the city streets late at night, there are only but so many police, and they cannot be everywhere at the same time.
