Selihote-out so late but only once a year

Yesterday's Chicago Sun-Times had series of sad stories about crimes in the cities bad neighborhoods-shootings, carjacking, robberies. Then I noticed the time of the crimes 2:30 am , 3 am etc. My 92 year old mother-in-law always said to my wife when she was a teen "nothing good happens after midnight."

Why are these people out that late (unless they are working)? Only one good thing happens at midnight- Selihote-our penitential service this Saturday night ends at 12 AM. A Swedish theologian once said "there comes the midnight hour when every person must unmask."
