Apparently you can’t buy a coat with an EBT card

Chicago police are reporting gunpoint robberies targeting people wearing pricey Canada Goose jackets as temperatures plunge in the city.

Over the past two weeks, police say there’s been a spate of the thefts in which people wearing the luxury coats have been targeted and forced to give up the jackets. The coats can cost upward of $1,000 and are often seen on celebrities.

    My office is near a college campus and the rich foreign student uniform of the season is a Canada Goose parka and a Fjällräven backpack. Yer talking about $1200 right there. When you add in the latest phone, Bluetooth earpiece, iPad, etc, each one of those students is about $4k on the hoof. And that’s not to mention the value of an attractive 19-yo female if you’re inclined to kidnapping as opposed to mere strong arm robbery. (Not that all of them are attractive, but still ….)

    When the vibrancy comes for Dead Bird (Arc’teryx) is when I’ll be in trouble. Note that sucessfully defending yourself (should I be so fortunate) is still a failure in this stupid day and age — if you happened to defend yourself against one of the eternal victim classes.
