Halloween Night In BisMan Brings Goblins And Porch Thieves
Here is a quick recap of last night, Halloween - a tradition we all know and love
There were parties all around town this past weekend in Bismarck and Mandan, adult ones, grown-ups dressed as their favorite celebrity, or maybe a good old-fashioned witch - but last night was the one kids have been waiting for all year. The tradition of roaming around the neighborhoods as a scary goblin or a miniature Batman, with one goal in mind, "Trick or Treat..." and candy galore. Ever since I was young, I planned my Halloween route for like weeks, armed with a big old empty pillow case, I would set out with a few friends and take to the streets like there was a competition involved, see how much candy I could collect. One thing that seems to have stayed the same happened here last night in Bismarck, as well as I'm quite sure all over the country. Porch pirates. Not cute ones with a parrot on their shoulder either.
Taking advantage of trusting nice people is nothing new
The cover picture of this article was taken off a porch camera here in Bismarck. A snapshot of a kid about ready to swipe a bowl that had treats in it, left by a trusting soul on her porch. This bit of thievery has been going on since the caveman days ( should I say cavekids? ) Here is part of what Samantha Brown wrote on the Bismarck people Reporting News Group Facebook Page:
"If your older kids (middle or high school) were in NW Bismarck tonight, you may need a word with them about respect and theft. Stole the bowl of candy (including the bowl!) and a bag of dog treats which I hope they ate. And if you’re not smart enough to realize you’re on camera, it’s pretty easy to track you down a couple of blocks away happily I retrieved my bowl, and the boys got a piece of my mind about respect"
Just another typical Halloween night has come and gone
I was just glad to see that there were no traffic accidents or mishaps that involved injuries to younger
