A bunch of people parking where they aren’t used to parking in a slightly darkened city already a magnet for crime?

What could go wrong?

Anyone want a modernized arena designed and constructed to specifications that would make this situation less likely?

Hihd are you afraid of people who blend into darkness better than you do? That sounds racist of you.

already a magnet for crime? what causes this magnetic force of crime attraction? Please explain or wise professor of sociology. Or is it that you are projecting your fears on others…again.
