Hood up. Head down. Bundled up.
As the cold sets in and takes hold of Chicago and the rest of the country people are hunkering down and trying to stay warm.
If you have the money to spend, a Canada Goose Jacket seems like a great purchase. Expensive but guaranteed to keep you warm these jackets seem like a no-brainer. Unfortunately purchasing one of these jackets does not come without danger.
At least 4 robberies have taken place in Chicago alone with the targets being Canada Jackets.
The wearers of these jackets have mostly been left unscathed other than being left out in the cold without a jacket and potentially down hundreds of dollars. These targeted robberies could, however, escalate into something much worse if action is taken by the wearer.
As much as it may pain you to relinquish a prized item to a robber always remember it is best to walk away with your life than it is to lose it over a jacket. But, there are preemptive measures one can take such as:
- Don’t walk alone at night or in poorly lit areas
- Make sure you do not have headphones in or your head down especially when you have your hood up
- Don’t talk on your phone when you are by yourself
- And simply being aware of your surroundings.
Stay warm. Stay safe. Get home to your loved one.
