I see that I've asked a rather vague question. Sorry. Before living in AZ, I spent 25 years as a musician in New Orleans, so I'm no stranger to crime. My concern is
the nature of the attacks (young men and women ganging up on 1 or 2 individuals) and the fact that the crimes take place within a small radius during a small time frame. I know the Denver PD has more than enough to do, but I just wonder why these attacks continue. My question should have been... Why is this going on Downtown? Thanks for your input everyone.

Sounds like a group of idiots had an idea for some "fun" and keep going with it because they haven't been caught yet but I'm sure they will eventually. I am glad to hear of this because I am moving to Boulder next week and I know to be on-guard in downtown denver.

Criminals are opportunists, they seek a target-rich environment; a bounty of late-night, staggeringly drunk folks are easy prey.
