Unfortunately, the description given matches a very large number of the local populaiton. Robber did pretty good job to cover up with baseball cap and hoodie and cloth to cover faceI and wore long sleeves and gloves. Notice, I did not specify gender and wouldn't matter even if known if boys or girls bike was the getaway vehicle. Main thing, no one hurt.

If the economy got alot better from 2008, it sure left alot of people behind. Feels like alot of people are just making it. Wherever I go, I scan the area to see if there's any threats. I reach down and touch my right pocket and feel for my serrated spyder knife. I then feel my left pocket and make sure I brought my fake wallet with expired credit cards and $60, that I'm willing to give up to avoid bloodshed. As I get in my car I pull the towel off my mace gun that shoots 25ft and I move the gaff to the side. I walk up to an old Asian lady in her late 60's sitting on the bench at Ala Moana. The stench almost makes me barf and her clothes are so dirty they look like plants are growing out of them. What in the world happened to this lady that causes her to live in this nighmare? I don't know and for my own sake I tell myself don't care, its no my problem. I sit next to her waiting for her to ask me for money. Nothing. Looks like she's half awake, half sleeping. I drop 4 bucks on her lap and start to walk away. Then she looks up and says thanks. Damn, that's my aunty I've never seen in 15 years!
