Now American homes and restaurants aren’t safe

It’s times like these that residents in Rochester, NY probably wished they had an NRA banner skewered into their front lawn instead of one filled with pacifist woke messages.

Several weeks ago we were appalled to see BLM activists shine torches through bedroom windows and yell obscenities in the middle of the night in suburbia. Now these thugs are climbing onto properties to intimidate the occupants.

After BLM activists ransacked local restaurants and causing diners to flee, they went to their homes and intimidated them there.

In Denver, Colorado BLM activists also harassed diners in Larimer Square.

How can anyone in their right mind vote for those who have openly supported these “mostly peaceful” protestors? We reckon BLM is doing far more lasting damage to businesses that coronavirus lockdowns ever could.

Vic Police make 2nd arrest on FB post. Gov’t finds 59 more CVD deaths to guarantee lockdown stays

You have to hand it to the Victoria Police for making absolutely no effort in trying to politely reason with the people they are trying to arrest. Yesterday, Premier Dan Andrews denied seeing the video of the arrest of a pregnant mother in front of her kids. No doubt he will claim he hasn’t seen this video either. In what world did the Vic Police think a pregnant woman was a flight risk to warrant hand cuffing her?

James Bartolo is the second person in two days to be charged for ‘incitement’ thanks to the police state that is now Victoria. Does the Victorian government fear sedition? Must it crush those who seek to oppose its power trip? Is Dan Andrews enjoying his daily pressers a bit too much?

Bartolo uploaded a video discussing how he intends to go to the Saturday ‘Freedom Day‘ rally and encouraging others to stand up for their rights.

So even though Bartolo hasn’t physically done anything, Victoria Police rounded up a normally law abiding citizen for questioning the very powers granted by despotic politicians that should never have been granted them in the first place.

We would imagine that a growing number of Victorians can’t sit idly by and watch these Stasi tactics continue. This is nothing more than intimidation. If there are protest rallies off the back of these videos, we won’t be in the least bit surprised. It will be a 100% own goal.

Oh, and wasn’t it fascinating to see that Victorian authorities found another 59 coronavirus deaths out of nowhere? Could it possibly be another police state tactic to guarantee that the lockdown stays in full effect come September 13th? Absolutely. Kim Jong Un would blush at the efficiency.

BTW, where is PM Scott Morrison condemning what is happening?

‘B’arking ‘L’efty ‘M’adness

Is this the type of action that endears people to a cause? To be harassed at a cafe and have people flip the bird, hurl obscenities and demand innocent people not guilty of any crimes show solidarity!? Isn’t the whole point of solidarity to join voluntarily without coercion or duress.

As we keep saying – Keep it up. It is a free election advertising loop for Trump.

Newton’s third law tells us when one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body.

Powerful – Cleveland Pastor testifies on the dangers of defunding Police

Cleveland Pastor Darrell Scott spoke at the House Judiciary Committee Hearing on Police Reform on the importance of continuing to fund the police and get politicians to take “responsibility” for law enforcement under their direct control.

Powerful speech. 9-minute video.

Japanese elderly crime continues to soar

Shoplifting.png

Almost 3 years ago, CM wrote a piece on elderly crime in Japan. It seems the stats are getting worse. The Japanese National Police Agency has reported in its latest report on crime that the elderly (65yo+) are now responsible for almost 40% of all shoplifting in 2016. This is almost double the rate of a decade ago. While much of it is petty crime, there seems a deliberate attempt to ‘break into prison’ as a way to survive. A roof over their head, three square meals a day, no utility bills and unlimited free health care. The only real negative being the harsh prison rules about when one can talk to fellow inmates. To the state, one inmate costs ¥3.8mn to incarcerate and we estimate around ¥300,000 in court and administration fees per incarceration.

Murder committed by the elderly is also crept up over the last decade to 18.9% of all murders. In absolute terms murders have fallen but for the elderly have remained relatively consistent. Burglary  rates have doubled.

Rape statistics also point to a rapid rise in elderly perpetrators.

Assault committed by the elderly has also soared to over 4,000 cases with total rates also climbing to new records.

Intimidation has more than doubled among the elderly too.

Total theft (involving all types) saw elderly percentages jump from 17.5% to 29.4% of the total 115,462 committed that year.

Since 2001, the elderly’s representative percentage of the prison population has doubled to be the highest demographic. The Ministry of Justice has expanded prison capacity by 50% over the last decade. One wonders if this has been in preparation for soaring crime rates.

While absolute crime rates are relatively low on an international level, the growing levels confirm a worrying trend.
