There has been a rash of sneak attacks by groups of marauding young Black teenagers and young men and women, sneaking up on their intended victims and with a full sweeping hook, delivering a solid punch to the side of the head of the victim.
The intention is to knock out the victim with a single punch, the results have been concussions, loss of equilibrium and in a couple of cases death has resulted from what I have heard (unconfirmed).
These cowardly assaults have been directed at white people, primarily Jewish people and several Asian people so far. The locations of these assaults have been in urban areas where the gangs can quickly disseminate into the population where they don’t stand out as outsiders.
These are in fact hate crimes, the cruel and violent nature of these assaults are felonies and need to be addressed by law enforcement, the local politicians and the citizenry, there also needs to be more media attention focused on the exact nature of these crimes and call them what they.
Black on White racial attacks, please let’s not try to sugar coat this any longer, it is bad enough that the Black leaders long the mouth pieces whenever a black person is attacked even if they are the perpetrator the call so of racism echo along the airwaves, these same leaders have been eerily quiet despite the video proof of these brutal acts of violence.
Jesse Jackson, Where the hell are you?
Apparently whites are fair game in this society, so let’s examine what we can and should do about this. First and foremost contact the media and politicians as often as possible and let them know what you think.
Secondly and more importantly, unless you never walk a street and live inside your home 24 x 7, I suggest take stock in your own personal protection and make preparations on what to do to prevent these attacks for yourself.
In my opinion the first rule of thumb is to be vigilant and not let your guard down, don’t get zombied out with your smart phone, stay alert and take note of who is around you at all times. When I say around you I mean around you, 360 degrees, develop a swivel neck, look at reflections of store or car windows and don’t allow yourself to be surprised by anyone.
If you see something , anything that is questionable, that is the moment to act, change directions get off the street do what you have to do to make yourself unavailable for attack, don’t ignore the feeling of fear, fear is good it is our natural alert system don’t ignore it, it will save your life.
None of us were brought into this world to be victims or punching bags, don’t allow yourself to be vulnerable no matter how silly you may feel about taking evasive action, just do it.
If you find yourself in a situation that confrontation may be unavoidable, I have a suggestion, this may not be for everyone but it will work. You have to understand these punk kids, they are cowards they derive their bravery from the group, alone they will yes m ‘am and yes sir you to death.
If a group is headed for you and you have no escape route, either take a defensive posture and wait for them to pass and keep your eyes on them (not my first choice).
Move directly at them, hands out of your pockets, walk fast and hard look as mean and pissed off as you can, never take your eyes off of them, there is a good chance they will move out of your way, these cowardly punks are not going to want to tangle with someone who may be able to hurt them.
I would also have with me some kind of implement, a flashlight preferably a tactical one, made of aluminum designed to be used as a weapon already in your hands.
This is not a game folks, people have been seriously hurt and there are no rules in this save one, survival.
Lastly if you are properly trained and are considered street ready and are legally able to carry a firearm that is also an option, the complications get compounded, Bernie Getz, Travon Martin among others are examples of the complications resulting from using deadly force, this is not a game either.
Understand the risks, understand the threat and evaluate for yourself what risk is warranted based on the threat and the possible loss, the answer will be clear.
The bottom line is to avoid trouble at all costs and if that proves impossible, never give up, never give in, never allow yourself to be a victim.
The ultimate poker hand, whoever has the winning hand wins, the loser may die.
Ask yourself, which hand do you want to play?
The above is my own opinion based on my life experience and the stories of many others who survived to tell about them, dead men tell no tales…
Good luck out there and be safe.
