There’s only one side who are wrong

Posted in The Job - Comment by 200

I’ve been saying for years that one of the biggest reasons this country is in such a shite state is because people do not fear consequences.

When I was growing up, I was taught that whatever I did had consequences. If I did something wrong, not only would I meet those consequences from my parents, I would also meet consequences from my neighbours, or anyone else with a vested interest in a peaceful and stress free life. It was the old saying along the lines of it takes a woman to have a child but a village to raise it.

These days, there are no consequences, therefore a certain section of society feel it is their right to do whatever the hell the please, whether that is keeping their neighbours awake at night with loud music and parties, helping themselves to anything they don’t want to save up for, or breaking into someone’s house and stealing what they themselves wouldn’t have the ethics to obtain legally.

Consequences don’t have to be massive or life-changing. A simple ‘please don’t do that’ might have the desired effect, if told young enough and often enough. Other consequences might include having personal items removed, being fined, or even being punched in the mouth.

If burglars thought that one of the consequences of breaking into someo0ne’s house in the middle of the night might include being shot, I’d guess there might be many fewer burglars.

I hope these people don’t get prosecuted.

    Kennesaw Georgia. Residents required by city ordinance to possess firearms.
    Offences there now are few and far between.
    Theres another town over there somewhers with a similar ordinance with similar results. Its name escapes me at the moment.

    Rense probably isnt the ideal source, being what he is – a conspiracy theorist, but there are others. It did give the best account of Kennesaw.

    The suspects have been arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary which would seem to indicate they too were armed in some way. Tough sh!t. Don’t be a burglar. Hope common sense prevails.

    What’s the betting they’ll be charged (excessive force and all that) and their “victims” will sue them (with legal aid of course) in the civil courts for compensation!

    The US has got it right, you break into someones house you take the consequences! Here it is all on a knife edge for the householder based on someone using 20:20 hindsight as to whether the action he took when confronted with 4 young thugs in the middle of the night was excessive.

    The other factor that will count against them is they are gun owners and therefore to the liberal left clearly evil nutters just looking for an excuse to blast people.

    Strange this should pop up just now. The difference in jurisdiction is stark.
