Our country has fallen a long way. We let the worst elements in government take over our schools. We let them close down our newspapers and corrupt
our news media. We see the worst denominator of behavior taken as a standard and it seems all so hopeless. When the government is corrupt everything
falls apart. It is our fault for not standing up for decency. Thank you for scolding those people and all of us really. When you tell a story like
that you are drawing a line in the sand. This is decent behavior and that is not decent behavior. That educates people.
Personaly, what ide like to do, IF i was their...was go up to her precious bmw, and stick an ice pick, screwdriver, knife through her tires, when she

Thiers a saing i once heard, and it all makes sense...how do you think rich people got rich in the frist place? it wasnt by being nice to

Amen to that. one of the very reasons i'm getting a spring loaded 70 round drum for my AK. Good people need to be able to protect other good people
who have no means to protect themselves from demons like those SD encountered...
We do have shelters zazz but it holds enough for a cot and an overnight bag.
There is also subsidized housing but you have to go through redtape and right now it is about a 3 year waiting list.
As for the person mentioning social security, she probably already collects it. SS is not enough for a person to sustain on in DC. Rent prices in DC
are pretty insane. She probably needs three more checks to cover the rent.
SD most likely your act of kindness will register for a long time. Even little things like give some people hope.
Once I was stuck at an airport for 2 days with no money or food. A boy scout looked for me and offered me his only 2 dollars. It brought tears to my
eyes, I will never forget it because of his act of kindness.
This is why our government is going to release a deadly virus amongst us. We are animals. Our society has devolved into soulless, greedy consumers.
when you started this thread, I thought you were talking about a neighborhood near Howard University. I was getting all self-righteous in my head
about the bad black neighborhoods. SHAME ON ME.
I grew up in that neighborhood. My church is down the street. My godmother lives a couple blocks away. I can't believe what I am seeing.
If it has not been explained in an earlier post, this is one of the wealthier neighborhoods in the wealthiest nations on earth. The average person in
tht neighborhood represents the top 1 1/10th of 1% wealthiest people in the world.
No wonder the rest of the world hates us and our government lives in fear of us. If wealthy americans, with enough money to drive BMWs feel compelled
to steal a poor old woman's belongings right in front of her, WE ARE IN VERY BIG TROUBLE. Prepare for a scene like this to take place in your
neighborhood this winter as the plague is lowered down on us and martial law is ordered.
That had to have been heartbreaking SD. I can't help but think of my grandmother's and if something like that had happened to them. I'm sorry
you had to see that. I don't blame you for being careful as to how involved you get.
The real problem, as I see it, is that our country has no respect for our elders anymore. I just can't imagine seeing an old woman on the side of the
street, crying no less, and making off with her belongings that she had accumulated over a lifetime. It's enough to depress a person.
Some people seem to be devoid of humanity these days. I hope I never find myself in a situation like that, but if I do, I hope there's someone like
When I found myself in the homeless shelter recently,many of my belongings were left behind.
My furniture, my baby's crib, anything that couldn't fit into a box..I lost.
My neighbor told me the landlord gave some to the other neighbors, and threw the rest away...
This is happening all over, and most people don't care.
S-dog, you are a kind soul.
In this situation, i agree. Shattered knees around the house. But when bigger SHTF, the ratio of people like the ones rifling through the poor
womans belongs, to people like SD is i fear is going to be very lop sided, and not towards the good. If and when that happens, a bat isn't going to
cut the mustard.
Dude they're not even paying the woman for this stuff? This is theft! Disgusting!!! These people don't need this stuff! If they wanna find used
stuff for sale just go to Good Will or something! Jeeze. Terrible. S & F
