    We have heard it just about all here in New Orleans !

    This happened here this past week:

    http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/2012/11/uptown_bicyclist_hit_by_car_th.html

    What will the thugs think of next ?

    They purposely ran their car into a person on a bicycle, knocked him off, then robbed him at gunpoint ! In mid-afternoon, broad daylight, in a nice residential area, just behind a hospital.

    How can we protect ourselves from this stupid violence ?

    Supposedly, carrying a gun protects you from crime. Or at least, it makes society a more polite society.

    We live in very different times now....riding a Bicycle on the street (with traffic coming from behind you) can be very dangerous...In many..many ways..*To each their own.....*If one must.... situational awareness is a high priority....`Mayberry Days (and mind-set) are gone forever`

    We could stop treating these thugs like poor misguided youth and deal with them. This isn't normal mischievous kid stuff, like liberal society wants to make it out to be.

    They will be patroling the streets in uniforms before long, get used to them like the people of other progressives nations have.

    As soon as it's legal to literally beat some sense into their parents.

    Why not? They know one was female... couldn't they tell approximate age, weight and height, and also the race of the woman?

    Sounds good to me. I just don't expect that to be very soon.

    I'll bet if she was an elderly white woman it would have been reported by the professional journalists.

    "We" have never done that. I suspect what you mean is we should simply shoot them on sight when they behave this way - which would be far more effective, but not very legal.

    Parents?...As in, more than one parent?
    Surely you jest.

    Actually, even the term 'parent' implies a responsible adult.
    We're talking babymamas.
