Just would like you all to know to be extremely careful when walking the streets.  In case you haven't heard there is a game being played where a group of kids randomly attacks someone.  Here is the link for the google search, and there have been reported deaths in some cases.

Please warn as many people as possible.

I agree. I think it is important to get the word out. It appears it has not been reported widely (maybe a good thing, who knows).

The reason it may not be widely reported is due to the sensitive nature of the type of people involved in the crimes. Some speculate it is a racially driven as you can speculate from the videos shown.

Yes, I saw that and did not hear about that aspect until I looked at the links you posted. The reporter I heard this morning actually said he did not wish to give it more coverage out of concern it would spread, but the consensus was (within the discussion on the news) that it is better to get the word out to the public.

Absolutely :(

 

It makes me think there could be other cases which are a result but which nobody knew about. 

 
Thanks to cryptodan for putting out the warning here.

You can bet they don't pick on people who look like they could fight back...

In my old neighborhood they'd practice "Italian baseball" on these sc*mb*gs.

And it is also good to get the word out about those who fight back. (links below to articles about 2 people who did)

 

That trick might backfire on them in my neck of the woods.

 

It might backfire anywhere.

 

You can bet they don't pick on people who look like they could fight back...

 

They shouldn't pick on people who look like they might not be able to fight back.

 

>>>That trick might backfire on them in my neck of the woods.<<<

 

In my old neighborhood they'd practice "Italian baseball" on these sc*mb*gs.

 

Whatever works on those who go around doing it.

 

As evidenced by these 2 people.

 

I bet they thought a 60 year old woman would be no threat to them when they chose her as their target.

 

You can't tell just by looking at someone if they have a weapon handy.

Lol yes but its hard to tell who's carrying firearms, in Wyoming a good deal of people carry-and know how to use them, including little old ladys.

I hope they don't charge the 60 year old with anything.  All she did was want to live.

@ the_patriot11

 

Same in my neck of the woods...Granny always has her shotgun right under her rocker as she is peeling 'taters...

 

@KingOfIdiocy

 

Agree! What she should get is a metal...

The way I see it is that there are 2 less punks in the world and 2 less punks to continue a life of crime. Than means 2 less punks the taxpayers will have to support because they will not end up in the big house with Uncle Louie.

Self defense. If the charge her with anything the public outcry will be deafening. She is well within her rights to carry the gun and use it if needed. As long as it's registered and she has a permit for it GO GRANNY. Show 'em you mean business and refuse to be a victim.
