NYPD Captain Says Teen Park Slope Serial Muggers Come From "Good Families" (White)

Last night at a city council meeting, NYPD 78th precinct commanding officer Frank DiGiacomo told attendees that recently apprehended suspects in a string of muggings in Park Slope are bike-riding teens that come from “good families” from “around the neighborhood.” What do you think he likely means by that?

Per DNAinfo, DiGiacomo said:

“Most of the kids are from good families,” DiGiacomo said. “They weren’t coming from bad areas around the city.”

He probably means something specific here.
