Blowing the whistle, being the dog which watches, mutual aid, unity, kinship.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: I was in a part of London I won't name. For the purpose of what I shall tell you it doesn't matter. I was looking at the bus app on my mobile phone. Suddenly a woman spoke out and warned me: some kids were circling on bikes, planning to grab my phone and cycle off. Thanks to her warning I was able to prevent it from happening. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: What she did is something we should all do under the circumstances, and I was grateful.

Removal of resistance: Just because they were kids at the bottom, with nothing, doesn't excuse what they were doing. She knew what they were doing as they do it a lot. You should be careful, reader, when handling your mobile or tablet etc etc in public. Whatever part of London you are in, I feel you should be careful about this. It doesn't matter which area this event I described happened in. Wherever you are you ought to be careful about this. Unification: It's no excuse that those boys are poor. Just as there is also no excuse when 'the rich' do the same thing. My experiences looking for decent flats to rent are something I have written about here for the same reasons that that woman warned me about the boys on the bikes who were about to rob me.
