this behaviour is unacceptable......but i think the cops are too busy handing out tickets a citations for revenue they dont have the "manpower" to
be bothered with actual crime...takes too long to investigate and does NOT raise revenue....sad sad world we are living in
Revenue generation aside how exactly does a cop or a hundred cops stop somebody from sucker punching you?
That's the heart of the issue with police and laws. A million redundant laws on the books and a thousand cops per block cannot stop somebody from
sucker punching you. Nor can they stop just about anything else for that matter. Police are reactionary. It's like winning the lottery to have one at
the right place and time to prevent harm.
Though there certainly is some truth as to the police not paying any attention to crimes like these, revenue generation being one reason, the reality
is that they shouldnt be wasting their time on things they cannot reasonably affect.
Having said that, cops and politicians who actively restrain would-be victims through disarmament laws, stand your ground opposition and other hand
tying policies should be ashamed of themselves. They know where their limitation are yet they insist on extending those limitations to each of us only
to benefit the attacker.
Your best defense against these attacks is situational awareness. Take the earbuds out, the headphones off and dont walk and talk on your cellphone.
Keep your distance from people around you and always take notice of the sound of running. If the thug isnt happy with a miss and turns to begin a
physical confrontation then do what you have to to end it as quickly as possible.
