Teens Caught On VIDEO Jumping Las Vegas Mom, Time Teach Kids a Lesson

Second Amendment


Bob Irwin highlights the latest self-defense and other shootings of the week. Read them and see what went wrong, what went right and what we can learn from self-defense with a gun.

USA –-(Ammoland.com)- A recent and apparently ongoing series of “incidents’ have been occurring near Elkhorn and Fort Apache here in Las Vegas. It involves as many as 60 middle school students from a nearby school.

The mob of children are apparently stealing things, grabbing purses from pedestrians and passing vehicles as well as breaking windows with thrown rocks.

Local FOX 5 news (KVVU) (and several private citizen ) have published cell phone videos one of these attacks from May 2018. FOX 5 interviewed the victims and attempted to get an explanation from School Police and LVMPD as why nothing is being done.

Find the story on www.fox5vegas.com. Once there, search for: “Teens caught on cell phone video jumping valley mother.”

Residents are left with few choices as to what to do here. So far these are mostly property crimes with the attackers scattering upon intervention by adult males.

The fact that nothing is done, naturally emboldens the youngsters. Sooner or later a victim will be seriously hurt or perhaps actually be killed. Then what?

Where an attack appears to be life threatening, is the answer to shoot a 12 year old?

In a Las Vegas case recently, a smoke shop clerk shot and killed a 13-year-old invader who turned out to be unarmed. The clerk rationally perceived the masked entry by two of three young teens as a lethal threat. He barely escaped a life sentence on an open murder charge.

That shooter’s family spent a small fortune on first class defense lawyers to win a lesser sentence. Naturally, a civil wrongful death lawsuit is expected also.

Comments:

I discussed this case on the 5/24/18 episode of “Fired Up with Bob Irwin” with an experienced street savvy police officer who offered some advice:

First, residents should document every incident with sound cameras, preferably solidly mounted on their homes to cover the street. Consider the doorbell types available several places.

Documentation is crucial to any prosecution of offenders and for showing a jury the whole story.

Secondly, until this pattern ends, try to avoid direct confrontations. Call 911 immediately if a group appears. Have a non-lethal response, pepper spray or a Taser, for use ONLY in case of a physical attack on you or your family.

With these tools available the young marauders can be successfully prosecuted through the juvenile system which can incarcerate them until age 18, at least here in Nevada.

For serious, repeat patterns of violence, these “children” can find themselves charged as adults.

Here and there in the United States we have experienced these “wilding” types of attacks in past summers. The instigators almost always end up doing adult prison time.

Unfortunately few 12 year olds are able to think that far ahead.

With a heavy dose of police patrols as well as an intervention from a Christian Biker group and school letting out for the summer, the incidents will be stopped.

Hopefully they will not restart in the fall.

  1. I find it to be a very sad day indeed that our political system has been spiraling down deeper and deeper into a vicious depraved self seeking greedy group that is sonpower hungry that the mere thought of anything or anyone who doesn’t adhere to their agenda is becoming terrorized by their militarized arm… kids going wild because there exists no punishment due to fear of retribution by more kids or the system itself, politicians who lie openly on both sides of the aisles when their agenda is challenged. Graft gone wild amongst politicians, FBI agents attempting to influence the course of elections, political parties stirring strife so that mentally deranged people go on shooting sprees and on and on. When you force feed drugs to children to quite them down or slow their actions vs sending them outside to play and exhaust them as was done to us as children look at the results. When they live on cell phones and play computer games that are extremely violent instead of learning social interactions face to face you take away from them the value of humanity as they blow up or shoot their way to the next level. It’s not just a game… it’s a tool that desensitizes the mind and makes some people lose the value of life. We have many issues in our country that need attention as we spiral down a path that unless we as parents don’t take our responsibilities for our families serious we will lose this battle. Our children are the future of America, if we let them do as they want many will turn to the actions that cause harm to others and or themselves. We need less State involvement in raising our children and more of ourselves comminicating with and spending time with our children to our values back into their lives. We need them to know what parent-child love truly is and is not. It’s not being their friends but their parents. While this may offend some I’m ok with that. I grew up in an era where children respected adults, where old fashion values of respect, kindness to everyone no matter who they were. Divisiveness can be reversed… it’s a learned / taught trait and causes much destruction. We need to get ourselves back on track to a healthy nation. We need to put God back in our families, schools and Govt. The lies that have been told such as speration of church and state ( it’s not in the constitution!) need to stop, people need to respect each other again and we need to heal as a nation.
