The best way to prevent street robberies like this?
On Tuesday at 1:30 in the afternoon on a busy street, a couple was walking in the 100 Block of Longwood Road when a man came out of a burgundy colored mini van armed with a silver pistol.
He took cash jewelry and the woman’s purse jumped into the van and took off.
Crime does happen everywhere, but in a neighborhood of walkers it’s scary.
“It does because in Roland Park you kind of feel that it’s a safe walk but nothing is safe in our world today.” Roland Park Resident Jane David says.
City police have stepped up patrols in the area so that the robbers don’t think that this area is full of easy marks.
Well, it’s not ‘stepped up patrols.’ It’s carrying a firearm. Unfortunately, the people of Maryland overwhelmingly support being disarmed sheep, as they continue to elect people who support and enforce laws that make it virtually impossible to get a carry permit. Unless, of course, you are one of those elected politicians.
I don’t need permission from the state to defend myself. I suggest the people in Roland Park wake up and realize the same.
