Today I read a story that I found infuriating. Apparently there was a man on a subway train in NYC that was attacked by knife wielding maniac and murderer Maksim Gelman. Fortunately for him, Joseph Lozito had some Mixed Martial Arts training. He also sports a very large physical frame and he was able to disarm and restrain the guy that was trying to kill him until the cops showed up. Now this is the part that I find completely infuriating: according to a lawsuit that a NYC judge threw out of the court, the cops were already on the train and hid inside the motorman’s car because they thought the criminal had a gun.
Lozito sued the city stating that the police officers did not act to help or protect him. Bare in mind, ladies and gentlemen, this is NYC we are talking about. Liberal, Gun Free Zone, NYC! A city where the Government insists that we do not need firearms to defend ourselves. A city where the Government encourages us to dial 911 when we are in danger. A city that asks you to retreat as far as you can before you ever attempt to defend yourself against a life threatening situation. A city where our tax dollars are paying individuals to “serve and protect us” while they hide like spineless cowards.
How sickening is this? The judge threw out the case stating that the police officers had no special duty to protect Lozito. Here is a thought for these ridiculous Liberals in power here, if the police have no obligation to protect us, then what are we paying them for? Why does their literature say “to serve and protect”, and finally and most important of all, why don’t you idiots allow us to carry our own guns to defend ourselves? We don’t need you, you force us to need you.
It’s one thing to say that the police officers made a judgment call for their own safety, but if at the same time the law ties up our hands and makes us victims, then that’s just wrong. Had this man not had some form of martial arts training, there is a good chance that he would have been murdered just like the other victims, while these cowards hid like scared little mice.
I’m not here judging the cops, maybe they have babies? Maybe they are newly weds? No, actually I am judging them. They are cowards. But that’s fine, I’m not one who counts on the police anyway, but don’t make it so difficult for me to defend myself! Don’t penalize us when we do what law enforcement fails to do.
