Wise folks avoid Baltimore, given a story Bill Martin sent me. “The heart of [its] tourism industry,” the Inner Harbor,
turned into a nightmare for a visiting family of 10 earlier this month. Out of nowhere, they were swarmed and beaten by a large number of teenagers. … “They swarmed us,” said Stacey. “They hit my husband in the head. They knocked him out… and then it was just complete bedlam.” … The 10 family members, from grandparents to grandchildren, were walking … when they were overwhelmed. “And they punched my nephew in the face and knocked him to the floor,” Stacey said. “My sister went to protect her son, and they were kicking her. I was knelling [sic] with my husband screaming ‘Somebody help us, why is nobody helping us?’”Well, because that’s the cops’ job. Oh, wait: the badged bullies are helplessly throwing up their hands and explaining the crimes rather than doing anything about them:
Baltimore City police spokesman T.J. Smith says groups of teens have been a problem in the city.A victim from another of the teens’ attacks offered a suggestion: “Maybe if there’d been police on foot, those people would never have been congregating there, looking for a fight, you know looking to hit somebody,”
“It’s always groups of them,” he said. “Someone in that group starts it, and that’s what we saw in this situation.”
To which our spokesliar Smith responded: “Well we did have cops all over the place, but again they probably got there relatively quickly, but we can’t have cops on every corner in every single block of the city…”
Yep. Defending ourselves when the incompetent, corrupt State fails to do so is one of the lesser reasons for the Second Amendment; a major one is defending ourselves from the incompetent, corrupt State. Yet Baltimore and the People’s Paradise of Maryland have zealously stripped their taxpayers of this inalienable right.
No wonder teen-aged criminals reign supreme.oo
Videos of the incident reveal the perpetrators to be "juveniles" wink wink, nudge nudge.
