reading exercise: avoid getting robbed

Over on LoopABC there is an article of crime prevention tips from the police. It’s a good place to do some sentence mining as most of the article is relatively easy to read with occasional visits to the dictionary. Here are a couple of sentences from the ‘how to act if you are getting robbed’ section, with free translations:

- Duna loke ku nan pidi. Bo bida ta bal mas ku material;
Do what they ask. Your life is more valuable than material things.

- No resistí. Bo por sali heridá;
Do not resist. You could end up getting hurt.
