Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake made a shocking admission in the aftermath of the violent protests that spread throughout Baltimore over the weekend. At a press conference she told reporters that she not only ordered the police to allow the protests, but she ordered them to give space and basically look the other way for those “who wished to destroy.”
These actions by the Mayor allowed violent thugs to descend on the city; looting, robbing and attacking innocent people on the streets.
Numerous storefronts and vehicles were damaged; a number of innocent citizens were robbed, and many were injured after being attacked by violent criminals who were allowed to run amok throughout the city.
This is a Serious Threat to the Public’s safety; One people need to Prepare for!
A number of people asked me why I cover these types of stories; the more ignorant ones accuse me of somehow pushing an agenda. The fact is, the only people pushing an agenda are the cowards who use social injustice as an excuse to commit crimes and terrorize the public.
As we’ve seen over the last year, these events are very real and they are growing with regularity.
My number one reason for covering these types of events is to help people prepare. We live in a world where this type of behavior is increasingly being not only tolerated, but promoted by those in power. This is a threat that is not going to go away anytime soon, and I’m afraid we are only seeing the beginnings of the social unrest that’s about to hit this country.
When I first wrote my book, The Ultimate Situational Survival Guide: Self-Reliance Strategies for a Dangerous World, many asked me why I devoted so much of the book to surviving things like criminals attacks, active shooter situations, and social unrest; I believe these current events highlight exactly why I did so, and exactly why people need to take these threats seriously.
