Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

The other day, I heard about a woman who was picking up a prescription at a neighborhood pharmacy.

As she was leaving, she was attacked and robbed of her medicine.

I thought, "What's wrong with people?" I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired of the crooks who prey on those of us who work so hard to earn what we have.

And then I thought, "We do not have to be victims."

There are things we can do that may keep us from being the next target for those who want to steal what we have

It can be as simple as the way you walk, the way you park, and who you talk to.

Nothing is foolproof of course, but experts can give you smart information to stay on alert.
