Yeah I don’t wish this upon anyone. But let this be a lesson to every tourist who lurks this sub. Nothing good comes from wondering the streets at 3am anywhere in this city. Don’t try to walk from the bar/​club to your hotel or Airbnb. Just pay the extra money and take an Uber/​Lyft. Especially when you’re walking around with $10k watches like those guys did.

Not that this excuses absolutely anything but running around Santa Monica and La Cienega at near 3 a.m. doesn't hit me as a wise decision.

"Personally, I would not come back here again after that," William Saunders said, recounting the incident. "I've never even seen a gun before -- let alone have one at my head."

This city/​county doesn't give a fuck about either tourists or working/​middle class residents.

Remember the tourists that got hacked at with a machete by some bum in Malibu?

I can't believe the idiots that run this town have been actively trying to attract major events like the Super Bowl and the Olympics.

Crime threatening the income from tourism might get the city to take crimes and the root cases seriously.

A great preview of what’s in store for the 2028 Olympics!

People visiting LA especially from EU.. there is not really that much to see in LA at that time… or any time of the day for the matter.. i’ve backpacked around this planet in my 20s been to europe south america asia and africa and seen some very nice interesting places.. LA is not one of them, unless you are here for business or live here.. please consider going somewhere else in the US or in the world.. tourism here has always baffled me.. please dont waste your money..

DMX tried to tell 'em:

"Don't you know, 'round me, talkin' about what you got will get you hit?!?!?"

-- DMX, Get At Me Dog

"How much your watch cost? 'Bout to get your watch LOST!"

-- DMX, More 2 a Song

Listen to DMX.

Always listen to DMX.

Probably showing off at the strip club and attracted a bunch of attention.

I guess they impressed the wrong audience with those fancy watches

Why is it mostly black males committing these type of robbery crimes in these areas ?

Traveling to an Omnicron hotspot like LA only to walk around at 3am with a 10k watch? Not a single good decision was made.

Peacemaker ad with the American flag in the background is a type of meta I can barely put words too

Reminder to everyone here that this isn’t necessarily uncommon.

It just tends to not make the news when they’re poor people or people of color being victimized.
