|Robbery in The Woodlands caught on camera|
Taemarr Walker's brother caught in Texas in Saturday homicide
The above conversation is real and went like this, “The reason these men are robbing stores is they can’t get good jobs because of the economy.”
“The reason they can’t get good jobs is because they are convicted felons.”
“Exactly. They are convicted felons and society has made it where they can’t get good jobs, so they are forced to get it any way they can.”
“Are you serious?”
“Yea, they are victims of society.”

Recently I watched the news and a well known people’s advocate was complaining about the armed robberies, home invasions, crash and grabs, purse snatchings, and other violent crime in inter-city Houston. He said business and home owners are scared. I appreciate this natty-dressed fellow using the violent crime problem to get his image before the people on this subject, because normally, the only time I see him is when he is crying foul when one of these violent criminals gets “abused” by the police department.
I remember when Islamic extremists were in the news daily killing Americans and the outrage by the general American public over the silence of peaceful Muslims in this country. The average person when questioned told me they felt there should be a distancing and denouncing of terror by peaceful Muslims and they were basically silent on the subject.

I’m thinking this same people’s advocate needs to stir up the hard-working law-abiding people he represents to rise up and separate themselves from the criminals who are destroying the general public’s perception that this crime wave is inherent, because the 6 O’clock news sure is reinforcing that view. Either that, or the media is seriously biased against this particular ethnicity.
Back to my conversation with an Operations supervisor I know, he continued, “If these convicted felons could get better jobs, they wouldn’t be stealing.”
“They steal because they are dishonest and criminal. It has nothing to do with the economy.”
“No, it’s the economy.”

“Um, is that why they attempt to rob an armored car with guns, knowing full well the guards are heavily armed and will shoot it out?”
Come on folks, reason this out. Do the Somali pirates hijack a ship because of the economy? Do people break into a home, or steal a truck and crash it into a storefront repeatedly and steal an ATM machine because they can’t get a good job? Do people ease up to a car and while the occupant is pumping gas, steal their purse because they weren’t handed a job making forty dollars an hour when they finished high school?

As a concealed handgun permit citizen, I routinely have my firearm with me, as do hundreds of other law-abiding citizens and on a few occasions recently, these same unfortunate victims of society have pulled a gun on the wrong people. I don’t wish harm on anyone, but that is wearing thin. I don’t entertain fantasies of “blowing someone away”, but being a martial artist; I’ve had to come to grips with envisioning how it all may go down.
Now, back to the armored car robbers – let’s focus on these for starters. The social victims are almost 100% sure they are going to shoot and be shot at and the same goes with entering a bank with a mask and gun. Who in their right mind would do something like this in 2013 when businesses are crying for qualified help? Criminals. Criminals would and do, because they are not victims, but criminals who prey of society.

So let’s cut through the socially and politically correct bologna right now and call these fellows what they are. Dangerous and violent criminals and if they enter a home, bank, business, gas station, or Jack in the Box with a gun with the intention of robbing and shooting the people inside, they should be terminated with extreme prejudice and if you think this is harsh, put the shoe on the other foot.
Imagine one of your loved ones being gunned down by one of these heinous creeps and then see if you can find a benevolent place in your heart for this poor unfortunate victim of society, because I sure can’t. I’m sick of looking over my shoulder when sitting in a Subway, wondering if a couple of men in masks and hoodies are going to come through the door with guns so they can rob the place for a couple of hundred dollars.
