Why would you leave that stroller outside on the top of the stoop and then be surprised that it was stollen ? Interesting , how many people have security Cameras outside their house?

Jackie from Fort Greene says:
It is hard to believe people think the $1000 dollar stroller won't get robbed! I have been guilty of leaving the stroller out for a few minutes- even then I know it may be snatched up.
