What To Do When You Can’t Avoid Being in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time

This article is sponsored by Home Security Store, who asked me to review their ebook, Crowd Control, Flash Mobs, and Your Safety.

When the economy made a sickening downturn about five years ago, I fully expected to see crime rates increase. It made perfect sense. Individuals who were out of work and in need of money to pay for the essentials in life would turn to a life of crime.


Instead, annual reports from the FBI indicated that crime rates were actually dropping! Between 2008 and 2011, murder and robbery rates dropped sharply, in spite of the economic conditions that continued to grow worse.

In spite of those statistics, it was hard not to notice an increase in a new type of crime, the flash mob. I know I wasn’t the only American who was disgusted and angry at reports that swarms of people would descend upon a helpless, unarmed business, often a retail or convenience store, stuff their pockets, backpacks and purses with anything and everything, and then leave, long before the police arrived.

More than once I wondered what I would do if I were caught in that type of scenario. The urge to do something would be strong, but the smarter side of me realized I would be in the minority and, therefore, vulnerable.

      First of all, why be so PC with this writeup? Everyone knows who and what these flash mobs are. it is not “youths” it is not “kids”… it is black animals with no morals, no values, no concern or respect for anything or anyone.

      They are lazy, they don’t try to better their lives, they revel in the “victimhood” status and blame the producers of this country for everything while at the same time, expecting them to have their hard earned money stolen and be given to them for doing nothing.

      They are not victims of anything. They are useless parasites and a cancer upon this country. There is nothing that will ever lift them out of poverty except their own willpower and hard work. Guess what though, we producers are getting sick and tired of paying for their food and housing and phones. Welfare cost more last year than social security, medicare and medicaid combined and it is soon going to come to an end because we can’t afford it anymore.

      So I guess they need to make a choice. Work hard to better their lives or die under a bridge somewhere, many of us producers really don’t care which!

      One option they may think they have is behavior such as these flash mobs where they just take what they want. They may get away with that in Chicago where law abiding citizens are not allowed to defend themselves from these animals but let them try that here in Indiana or any other concealed carry state.
