The truth comes out, by accident!
Otherwise, little more that a willing participant in the DNC's leftist
propaganda, HBO recently did a piece on a famous home-invasion/murder in CT in
2007. I'm sure it was not their intention, but they made a persuasive case
for citizens going armed!
Two recently-paroled losers, armed with a bludgeon, duct-tape, and
gasoline, invaded an upscale home. Some accounts claim they had a gun. Most
others make no mention of it. In any event, no one in the home had a gun, nor
access to one. That proved a fatal omission!
The father of the house was severely beaten and tied-up, but he escaped
into the basement and called police. Police arrived quickly, appropriately
dressed-up in full, battle regalia!
As is typical of politicians, the mayor later postured and then lied about
the police response, insisting his officers arrived "too late to save
anyone." Yet, he stonewalled inquiries from surviving members of the family.
They eventually had to sue to PD, and the State Police, to get access to
the real record of the incident. These days, such cover-up is standard
procedure. They love to call it "transparency!"
As it turns out, police arrived in plenty of time to stop the murdering,
but took no action, despite the fact that they could hear women, including an
eleven-year-old, inside the house screaming and begging for their lives,
as they were raped, beaten, bound, and then doused with gasoline and set on
fire. It is obvious police saw their duty as beginning and ending with
merely waiting until it was all over and then arresting suspects, which was
subsequently accomplished without incident. No attempt was ever made to
intervene on behalf of victims.
Both suspects have since been convicted and sentenced to "death," but we
all know what that means. Both have a vastly greater chance of dying of
old-age, while sitting on death-row, than they do of actually being executed.
If they are ever executed, we will all be long-since dead and buried
before it happens!
We've been led to believe that such timid, impotent, blundering, indeed
cowardly, police responses had ended with the disastrous Columbine fiasco in
CO in 1999. We were supposed to have learned our lesson. Yet, we saw the
exact same thing at Virginia Tech, and similar incidents since, including
this one. To be sure, there have also been courageous rescues by heroic
officers, but consuming risk-aversion still rules the kingdom in many
Audacious police chiefs and sheriffs (many of my friends) and others are
doing their best to reverse this policy of what has been called "tactical
loitering." But, it is apparently an uphill battle, actively opposed by
risk-averse administrators, politicians, even some individual officers. Of
course, these people are the same ones who simultaneously insist that we mere
peons don't need guns!
Had anyone is the house been appropriately armed and trained, the two
perpetrators in question would have easily been dispatched to the ME's office,
and we would have been subsequently treated to never-ending "specials" on
the leftist media about how these two, poor suspects had an unhappy
childhood, and how the (alive and well) residents participated in "vigilante
justice," ad nauseam!
The point is, and unintentionally conceded by CNN... we're on our own!
Anyone who is betting his life on the probability of being "rescued," in
the nick of time, having made no personal preparations, is wilfully engaging
The unarmed need to wake-up. "Good enough" never is!
