Keeping us safe

Keeping us safe {uh, really?}

social-media-postsRecently, some schmucks posted in the social media cesspool sending “thanks” to the Hoboken police department for “keeping us safe” during the Fall Arts & Music Festival last weekend.


If true, that would mean one or more of the following:

  • They actually prevented “bomb” from exploding in the crowd.
  • They stopped a mass riot from taking place.
  • They arrested one or more individuals intent on harming innocent others before they had the chance.

You get the point.

The festival would have been fine without the “increased” police presence. We’ve been to other festivals that had NO police on site (other than an officer outside the event helping with traffic). Just the event volunteers were more than enough to keep an eye on the crowds.

Parroting liberal ideals

These people that “cheer” on the police – are essentially cheering on the government. Those same people also root for our constitutional rights to be stripped (i.e., guns to protect yourself). Or for happily paying higher property ransoms each quarter without question.

Relying on “big brother” to keep you and your family safe is a terrible proposition to get accustomed to.

And has bad long-term prospects.

I wonder if those people ever really think about what all of it means in the big picture. Whatever happened to the concept of taking care of yourself?

“Keeping us safe” is just a euphemism for “kneeling for your controllers.”

keeping us safe what a crock

With truck attacks, trash can bomb and calls for lone wolfs its prudent to have some visible presence even if it just to make the target look less appealing. They are also handy in case any millennials randomly trigger.

How does anyone know who really made any of those attacks? How can you be certain it wasn’t something else? You can’t. Keep your eyes open.

Ironically – if something had happened, you’d be the first person to bash the police department for not having an adequate presence during the festival.

If I was a hotheaded second-generation vibrant who despised infidels I’d consider the Festival a good place to showcase my “talents”. And since I’d be in one of the fastest growing segments of society the risks would grow each year.

These risks are pretty small now but I think it’s just a matter of time.
