While driving on a rural end of the roadway on Thursday morning, I saw an infant carseat on the side of the road with a blanket draped over it. For whatever reason, I did not stop, even though I had all kinds of thoughts running through my head. But when I got to my destination, I called the Police and they were going to check it out. But, this is what the Police advised even before they went out there to check....For readers in the Colonies, 9-9-9 is the telephone number in Her Britannic Majesty's Realm that corresponds to our 9-1-1.
There are several things to be aware of ... Gangs and thieves are now plotting different ways to get a person (mostly women)to stop their vehicle and get out of the car.
There is a gang initiation reported by the local Police Department where gangs are placing a carseat by the road...with a fake baby in it...waiting for a woman, of course, to stop and check on the abandoned baby.
Note that the location of this carseat is usually beside a wooded or grassy (field) area and the person -- woman -- will be dragged into the woods, beaten and raped, and usually left for dead. If it's a man, they're usually beaten and robbed and maybe left for dead, too.
DO NOT STOP FOR ANY REASON!!!
DIAL 9-9-9 AND REPORT WHAT YOU SAW, BUT DON'T EVEN SLOW DOWN.
IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND EGGS ARE THROWN AT YOUR WINDSHIELD, DO NOT STOP TO CHECK THE CAR, DO NOT OPERATE THE WIPER AND DO NOT SPRAY ANY WATER BECAUSE EGGS MIXED WITH WATER BECOME MILKY AND BLOCK YOUR VISION UP TO 92.5%, AND YOU ARE THEN FORCED TO STOP BESIDE THE ROAD AND BECOME A VICTIM OF THESE CRIMINALS.
THIS IS A NEW TECHNIQUE USED BY GANGS, SO PLEASE INFORM YOUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES.
THESE ARE DESPERATE TIMES AND THESE ARE UNSAVORY INDIVIDUALS WHO WILL TAKE DESPERATE MEASURES TO GET WHAT THEY WANT.
Please talk to your loved ones about this. This is a new tactic used. Please be safe.
Get started NOW -- SEND THIS MESSAGE TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES TO BE CAREFUL AND AWARE OF EVERYTHING AROUND THEM SO AS NOT TO BECOME A VICTIM
This brings several thoughts to the fore:
1. The UK is much more lenient to criminals - even violent criminals - than we benighted denizens of Darkest America. As a result, they have a horrific violent crime rate. With the exception of murder, the UK easily doubles or trebles US rates of assault, burglary (especially "hot" burglary, where the occupants are at home), stabbings, and rape.
2. While Europeans like to lecture us benighted denizens of Darkest America about the virtues of "community action", what we see from this reaction to crime is to reduce community action where it would be most needed: what could possibly be more in need of support by the community than an abandoned baby? But the Public Officials counsel people to pass by; nothing to see here, move along.
3. Sadly, in this degraded state of affairs goes hand-in-hand with the disarmament of the law abiding portion of the citizenry. It's so bad that even having your grandfather's old war souvenir will get you five years in durance vile. Since it's almost impossible to legally carry a handgun in the UK, so the law abiding citizens are placed at the mercy of the thugs.
4. There is a degenerate portion of This Republic - heavily concentrated in Blue regions - who think that we should "be more like Europe", and live our lives in Condition White, disarm ourselves, and trust to Officer Plod. It is a little piece of Europe brought to the New World, with tragically predictable consequences:
I read these stories every few months somewhere or other, and they always end the same way: a few years back, a couple of screwed-up Vermont teens decided they were going to kill somebody just for a giggle. They knocked on doors in neighboring towns demanding to be let in and cranky old plaid-clad coots told them to get lost and not to come back or they'd get it with both barrels. Dumb as they were, eventually the kids figured out that the one place where they'd be bound to find a couple of suckers who'd let 'em across the threshold was . . . an Ivy League college town! So they went across the river to Dartmouth in New Hampshire, were admitted by a couple of professors, and murdered them. The professors were also admirably "progressive": the last e-mails they sent that morning were impeccably anti-Bush.5. It's been said that if you want to know how someone views you, ask them their opinion of whether you should be allowed to carry a pistol. Europeans, or Blue State bien pensants will be horrified at the thought. They see you as a subject. At the same time, they'll make tut tutting and mistakes were made noises about the failure of the Constabulary to protect its citizens, or of the Court System in releasing violent criminals back into a society upon which he will prey.
It's a Condition White philosophy, that they would impose on the rest of us via force majeure. An Institutionalized Condition White, demanded of us by our Intellectual Betters, for our own good.
No thanks. If I thought that these people actually were smarter than me, and actually had thought out the consequences of their philosophy, then I might still count myself as a liberal. They're not, and they haven't, and I don't. I guess that if I were as smart as I'd like to think, it wouldn't have taken me the better part of fifty years to reach this conclusion.
But I have reached the conclusion that it's better to stop to help an abandoned baby. And if a bunch of thugs try to jump me, to use the intelligence the Lord gave me - and the tools created by John Moses Browning, Peace Be Upon Him - to make sure that they don't go home fully staffed that night.
You want a society that takes care of the weak, you arm that society against the jackals that would feed on it.
