An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Yep! It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted any Saturday links. But then again, it’s been quite a while since I sat in my own recliner, in my own living room, in my own home! If the mood ever strikes, I just might share some of what, and who and why of the whole fiasco, but for right now… I AM HOME!!!

Things are getting so rough in the Big Apple that even toddlers are getting mugged.
A cruel thug ripped a $400 gold chain off the neck of a 3-year-old boy who was sitting in his stroller and being pushed by his mom in Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn on Tuesday, law-enforcement sources said.
The crook and an accomplice attacked tot Harvey Hernandez in the lobby of his family’s Malcolm X Boulevard apartment building at 11:45 p.m. after following him, his teenage brother and mom Riyana Guerrero home from a Laundromat.
This is how far our society has sunk? New York is a trash heap. I have two questions here. The first would be: Why the hell would anyone put a $400 gold chain on a toddler? I can see it if maybe it was a special occasion, but seriously? And second: Why the blazes was a 3 year old up at 11:45pm? I don’t know much about Brooklyn, having only been there once…a VERY long time ago, but I’d still think that anyone who puts an overpriced gold chain on a toddler, who really doesn’t give a flip, one way or the other, take him out in the middle of the night, in ANY area of New York, is asking for trouble. I am NOT excusing the behavior of the thugs, I’m just questioning the common sense of the mother, or lack there of!
The chain was a gift from Harvey’s godparents for his baptism. It has a small medallion on it with the image of hands holding a child.
Guerrero said she’s just happy that she and her children weren’t hurt.
“I didn’t care about the gold; I was just worried about my [kids],” Guerrero said. “It was horrible. I don’t feel safe going out into the street now.”
The mom said her 13-year-old son was “traumatized’’ to the point where he’s afraid to go outside.
“Now, none of us feel safe,’’ she said. “We plan on moving.’’
I’m glad the kids weren’t hurt, physically, as well! Her other kid is 13? Why didn’t she leave him in charge of the little one at home, instead of dragging them both out in the middle of the night? I understand not all 13 years olds are mature enough to be left for long periods of time with small children, but if the lady has neighbors, in case of an emergency, he could have gone to one of them.
The article only mentions that the thugs are male, and teens. That doesn’t give the public much to go on, does it. I wonder how many 16 and 17 year olds live in New York, Brooklyn in particular. I’m going to take a wild stab here, and say that the perps could be Hispanic, since the woman speaks Spanish (why doesn’t she speak the language of the country she lives in?) and likely lives in a predominantly Spanish speaking community (I repeat the previous question). Then, they could also be black. I don’t understand why, but it seems that many black youths have come up with the idea they are entitled to what someone else has, just because they want it. /sarcasm It is also possible the punks were white, although, to be honest, I can’t imagine too many white families living in the same area as so many ‘minorities’. People seem to segregate themselves, instead of integrating with others. I’d suggest if the Post, and the police, wants the aid of the public, to catch the cretins, they should go back, and get a better description.
The thought that there are people running around free in the streets, who would purposely harm a child, makes me think the 2nd Amendment should be first and foremost on the minds of those who live in places like New York.
