They break. They get lost. You want one for your car, your office, another room in your apartment or house. But even in your darkest, lowest-phone-charge hour, you wouldn’t do this. As reported in the police blotter for the 62nd Precinct (Bensonhurst—Bath Beach) at brooklynpaper.com:
A brute beat a woman over the head and stole her cellphone charger on Bay 37th Street on Oct. 20, according to NYPD officials.
The woman was walking between 86th Street and Benson Avenue in Gravesend at 10:30 pm when the galoot ran up behind her, struck her in the back of the head, and snatched the charger from her pocket, police said.
To quote Fairfax (James Coburn) from the movie “Payback” (an overlooked, underrated flick): “Man, that’s just mean.”
