Crime is getting so bad in some of America’s urban centers that residents have had to hire private security firms after the police, and liberal gun control policies, have failed to keep the streets safe.
A neighborhood in Baltimore, Maryland is considering hiring a private security firm to patrol the streets after 10 black teenagers brutally beat a white teenager, in what some residents insist was a hate crime.
The victim was brutally beaten while he was on his way home from work. A neighbor who witnessed the event told local reporters, “They beat this boy. He got up, he’d run, they beat him. He got up, he’d run, they beat him. He got up, he’d run, they beat him.”
Members of the “Little Italy Community Organization” plan to hire private security to patrol the streets after police refused to call the crime a Hate Crime, and have failed to curb the rise in armed robberies and assaults that have plagued the Baltimore neighborhood.
The sad reality of this situation is we have a culture that’s obsessed with violence, and a government who is unwilling to take on the real problems facing this country. Instead of looking at what’s really going on, they’ve chosen to go after the law-abiding citizens with asinine gun control laws that do little if anything to keep guns out of the hands of criminals.
Earlier this year we featured an article that showed how the capital of gun control, Chicago, Illinois, was actually more dangerous than the war zones of Afghanistan. Despite the epidemic levels of violence facing cities like Chicago, politicians continue to disarm the public – making the susceptible to this type of violence and emboldening the criminals who terrorize these neighborhoods.
Is it any wonder we have so many youths taking to the streets and randomly attacking people? What else would you expect when this type of behavior is glorified by celebrities, the news media, and Hollywood?
In my opinion, these types of attacks are going to become even more common, and will increase in brutality in the future. With the rise of social media, combined with our sick depraved culture, it’s never been easier for these criminals to target their victims.
If you live in, or travel through one of these urban centers, you need to always be aware of your surroundings, and always be able to defend yourself. Remember, the teen that was attacked in Baltimore was doing nothing but walking home from work when he was attacked. These random attacks are becoming increasingly common and are incredibly hard to predict.
That being said, we wrote an article last year on protecting yourself from Flash Mobs and random attacks that can help prepare you should you be faced with a similar situation. Remember, preparedness and training are the keys to staying safe; don’t be caught off guard because you failed to prepare!
