B’klyn bat man: Run, looters!


#1

Hardened New Yorkers are ready to battle lowlife criminals to protect their homes and stores in storm-ravaged areas plagued by looting and break-ins.
In Coney Island, several residents were loading up their guns, sharpening their machetes and brandishing other deadly weapons.
Jacinto Gonzalez, 42, picked up a baseball bat and stood guard outside his two-story rowhouse on West 27th Street near Neptune Avenue with his family.
Another Coney Island resident, Roberto Aviles, brandishing a rusty 3-foot machete and warning he has a gun, who has lived in Coney Island since 1995 with his wife, says he’s ready to take on phony burglars posing as Con Ed workers.

“I’m prepared inside here,” the 76-year-old Aviles said, showing off his rusted, three-foot machete and warning he had a gun.

You know, I was in NYC in 63 to 66 and was caught up in the great blackout of 64 [ I believe] and there was amazing cooperation and friendliness, people helping people, and now it’s all gone. How sad.

Liberalism kills off the very souls of men, leaving only their Godless shells and nary of trace of human dignity.

But without government we’d all just die!

Liberalism replaces God with State.
