Suspects charged with using ‘Pokemon Go’ to commit armed robberies

Original Article found here.

Found it on Reddit myself.

What’s sad is that my wife had come up with this scenario the day Pokemon Go released, only in her case she figured it would be Pedophiles doing something like setting up a Pokestop near their home.

Truth be told this is rather scary, and I really wish I could say I was surprised that it happened.  Sadly I am not.  People can be scum, frequently, and this is just a prime example of using something designed for fun and social interaction instead for evil purposes.

Parents, if your children are playing Pokemon go, please make sure to accompany them.  Don’t let them run around in unknown areas.  Make sure if you visit a Lure location its in a brightly lit and public place.  Not a pokestop lure out in the middle of nowhere.

That Bulbasuar or Dragonite or Gyardos is not worth your life.  PERIOD.
