Two women have been brutally gang raped “by a group of 10 to 12 black male juveniles” in a Wilmington, Del. park, CBS Philly reported yesterday. “According to police, the suspects, who range in age from 12 to 17-years-old, remain on the loose.”
Councilmember-at-large Maria Cabrera was quick to size up the content of their character and state the obvious.
“The new criminal we’re seeing, they’re bold, they’re brazen, and they have a total disregard for life,” Cabrera admitted.
So with this pack of bold, brazen, feral sociopaths with a total disregard for life still on the loose and menacing the public, and with police demonstrably unable -- and not legally responsible -- to prevent future attacks, what does Cabrera propose that her constituents do to stop the violence?
“The only way that we are going to overcome the problems that exist in our community is by working together, hand-in-hand with the churches,” she advocates. “Because what we need more than anything is the healing. And that’s not going to come from government.”
There’s actually much truth in that, particularly in the part about government “solutions” being useless. The problem is, it’s inconsistent with that church and state “wall of separation” that “progressives” demand, and a committed “progressive” Cabrera is, as evidenced by her Change.org profile. Curiously, rather than looking to churches, she’s come down on the side of coercive government mandates that work against the right of her constituents to defend themselves, by endorsing petitions like “Change for Trayvon: Stand Your Ground laws must be reviewed,” and “U.S. Congress: We Demand Action to End Gun Violence.”
With that in mind, what is Cabrera’s response to this latest savage attack?
Per her Facebook page, she intends to join with fellow council member Sherry Dorsey at an event “to stand together against the violence that has taken over our city!”
That would be the same Sherry Dorsey [-Walker] who asked a rhetorical question of the thug rapists.
“Who told you that it was ok to mistreat women to this magnitude?” she angrily demanded.
Talk about a loaded question, on so many levels. Where to begin…? Perhaps with what magnitude she finds acceptable and who and what she thinks the primary templates for and enablers of that assumption are…?
“And what do you need from society so that you can make better choices?” Dorsey followed up.
Typical collectivist. And they say there are no stupid questions.
That’s hardly surprising considering we’re dealing with a political creature with no real answers, and especially when you understand that Wilmington’s crime index rivals Detroit’s. So it’s also no wonder the best Mayor Dennis Williams can offer is to posture for the media about schemes he shares with others in power to expand citizen disarmament, and make it even more difficult for good people to defend themselves against “bold [and] brazen criminals [who] have a total disregard for life.”
