Larry Davis says:
One phrase needs to go: “Broad daylight”. If mayhem occurs between 9 am and 5 pm (especially in the summer), it always happens in ‘broad daylight’. Unless the weather played a part in the robbery, I would image most daylight would be broad, and there’s usually daylight during the day.
You know that if there were a robbery during a solar eclipse, somebody would write, “The stabbing took place in broad daylight”.
