Perhaps His Honor was on to something.
An Associated Press story today reports
that the mayor Indianapolis was victimized by a pickpocket during the Final Four weekend.
The story notes that Greg Ballard did not have any body guards with him when he was robbed of his cell phone, taken during a ruse that had him trying to help someone on the ground and then surrounded by a couple other fellows. (He was visiting because his city hosts the next Final Four.)
Maybe Kwame Kilpatrick knew that walking the streets of his city required the protection of a dozen police officers acting as personal body guards.
Of course, was the the kind of guy to bend over and help someone in need? Or would he have to be lured by dropping a wallet (or a Blackberry) on the ground?
