It’s not just your imagination. There a lot of damn scary children out there, preying on the weak. And, it’s only going to get worse.
So says Hannah E. Meyers, a fellow and director of policing and public safety at the Manhattan Institute. She tells the US and the world — via the Daily Mail — that America’s gun-toting children — armed with amazing firepower — are running amok and shooting anything that moves or attracts the interest of their homicidal, pathological tiny brains.
Hannah warns the violence is “just another noxious ingredient in a toxic stew destroying kids’ lives ….progressive adults have only themselves to blame.”
In her article, Meyers points to the case of a Brooklyn teenager, a 15-year-old, shot in the back. People who live on the wounded boy’s block say he was most likely collateral damage of warring gangs of neighborhood kids.
Then, there’s the story of three teenagers gunned down in New York’s Times Square. It wasn’t random. Police tell Meyers the gunman, who knew the victims, is still on the run, while his, or her, victims recover in a NYC hospital.
Or how about on the West Coast, where Meyers points to the story of dozens of kids — 81 of whom were arrested — who rampaged through the streets of San Francisco, with guns, fireworks and all the drug paraphernalia it takes to keep a strong buzz going; all the while yelling “ F**CK THE POLICE!”
Oh, and that’s not all from San Francisco. As Meyers tells the story in her Daily Mail article, “thieving gangs of kids in ski masks, armed with baseball bats” swarmed upon moms pushing their strollers, picking little children up from school.
Who’s to blame?
According to Meyers, one word answers that question.
Meyers says a classic example of wrongheaded progressivism can be seen in Chicago, where hundreds of fighting teenagers and young adults rampaged through the Windy City’s Loop in April, demolishing cars, vandalizing stories, jumping on bus roofs, and shooting their powerful guns at whatever, and whomever, they pleased.
Mayor Brandon Johnson, a progressive who claims to be a “fun dad,” said the last thing anyone should do is criticize the out-of-control mobs.
Or as Mayor Johnson put it, “It is not constructive to demonize youth who have otherwise been starved of opportunities in their own communities.”
Meyers’ article is based on far more than stories picked from headlines. She cites empirical data documenting the rising tide of teen violence sweeping through America’s biggest cities. The numbers also show the violence is not, and will not abate, unless strong action is taken.
“National and local leaders cannot ignore this juvenile crime wave,” Meyers writes. “American children need us to be the grown-up in the room.”
Within the confines of a small, rural community in Western Michigan, a loving father of two became an embodiment of the infamous Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, concealing his sinister alter ego behind a facade of normalcy.
Driven by an unyielding need for a woman he could never possess, he succumbed to his basest instincts, transforming into a merciless madman. And when his desperate cravings became unbearable, he resorted to the ultimate act of violence: murder.
Four lives were brutally extinguished on that fateful night, forever etching their names into the annals of this close-knit town's history.
The aftermath of this heinous act would send shockwaves through the community, shattering its peace and tranquility. As the days turned into months, a dedicated task force of fifty detectives and forensic experts tirelessly pursued justice, leaving no stone unturned in their quest to unmask the murderer.
But it was the testimony of an unlikely witness—a crack-smoking prostitute who had narrowly escaped his clutches—that would provide the first crack in the killer's facade. And behind the cold bars of his prison cell, a chilling jailhouse confession to his cellmate would reveal the full extent of his twisted psyche.
The Murder of Katherine Brown, first published as “Lustful Desires,” is a gripping narrative, at times heartbreaking, that explores the depths of a homicidal sex fiend's contempt for women, his victims paying the ultimate price for his deranged desires.
This true crime saga goes beyond the grisly details of a mass murder, weaving in the stories of the families left to mourn, forever scarred by the loss of their loved ones.
