It was his fault, he was totally oblivious to his surroundings and no street smarts.

This thing is very prevalent in Europe.

With due respect. is that a US isolationist viewpoint? I travel extensively in eastern and southern Europe and haven't had any issues.

Great logic. Because it hasn't happened to you it doesn't happen right?.

Obviously if you go to a dark alley in a bad part of town at 3am then you can expect trouble but with average street smart and cop-on you be fine almost anywhere, including Rome.

That's what I'm saying, the dude has no street smarts.

The number one crime in St. Petersburg is..... *drum roll*..... THEFT.

So is it a dark alley at 3am, tell me?
