Do you see the increased civilian activity as a boon, due to more eyes + smartphone eyes, or a burden, due to an increase in the number of 'marks' as it were.

Tricksy,

I see it as a total boon. Last year, at the same time, there would haven been 100-150 mopes camped out in the park, getting drunk, dealing dope, and looking to start fights.

Sure, the Pokemon players, aren't really looking around them or talking with their friends, but they are out, walking, and using the park for family-friendly means..

Straight Pipe,

It is more like a sucking chest wound and we are arguing whether we should use inch wide triangle or rectangle bandages to address the wound.

RD- the detective who owns the dojo where I train is annoyed that there is a PokeStop there. He knows it's my fault, too, because I made the mural on the wall into an Ingress portal, and that's there Niantic Labs got their PokeStops from.
I make sure to take pictures of him with Pokemon whenever I can, hahaha.
Seems like feelings in the local PDs are kind of mixed, but yeah, there are way more people out right now, and I think that's a good thing. In the first couple weeks, people were talking to each other, too, no matter their ethnicity, age, body type... it was really amazing. I've never seen anything like it.
It gave people who were afraid (or afraid of people BEING afraid of them) a social commonality that made reaching out and interacting a lot more safe. I loved to see it.

Ev - Blue or Green?
Helping recharge Denver this weekend?
