Since when is it the victims fault for being in the wrong neighborhood? Fed up with idiot people blaming victims of crimes because they are white in a black part of town. Are they trespassing? Last time I checked the goverment owns the projects not the criminals. Where did these morons get schooled? Seems like this citys residents are excusing the criminals for being wrong and blaming the victims.

It is stupid to go to a part of town you know to be dangerous. You wouldn't catch me at 5th and Tudor Street or over by the Razz-ma-tazz or whatever whoever owns it now calls it. I think most of the argument is that it's stupid to pick up people you don't know well. Just like it's stupid to play outside during a lightning storm. You may get hit, but if you don't, that doesn't mean you weren't stupid to take the chance.

There used to be an all night Pawn shop near downtown Dallas in a neighbor hood where everyone has bars on windows, doors. Being open 24 hrs a day they had to have a drive threw at night. Surely someone was smart enough to know that if someone was pawning something at 3am, it would be for drugs. Unfortunately I let a friend take me their at those hours twice. It's really amazing what goes on in the big areas of huge cities in the late hours and in certain parts of town. When people are found in dumpsters regularly you question why would you want to be there even though you should be allowed to go anywhere safely.

It doesnt justify saying the victims are stupid. Something needs to be done about these criminals. Turning your head and shrugging your shoulders and spitting out comments like they shouldve known better, isnt cutting it. Letting criminals take over neighborhoods is just like saying your powerless. Jeeze too much negativity, why not be a good citizen and help put an end to some of this bullshit.

People are often the victims of their own stupidity. No one is excusing the criminals, but victims are often victims because they allowed it.

So what are you doing to put an end to it? Give us some constructive suggestions. I'd like to know how you're tackling the problem.

Yes, I go where I want to go. I just choose NOT to go the areas of town where I know there are high crime problems. That's smart. But go ahead and assert your right to go wherever you want to whenever you want to. When we read your obituary, we'll say, "But, darn it, he knew his rights and he didn't back down!" Maybe we can even get your funeral procession to drive down by the Razzmatazz or Madeas.

Totally agree with you. I'm probably paranoid but I want even use the urinals at the Casino if I have over 500 in my pocket. It would be so easy to be knocked over the head with your face against the wall. I know that is ridiculous with all the security there so I just piss in the bush's outside.(Joking) No actually someone followed a friend and I from the Casino after a win and when we stopped to count our winnings at a weigh station in OK. Someone stopped and came towards the vehicle with a foot long metal flash light asking where the action was saying he was from out of state, but was wearing a Powderly Volenteer Fire Dept T shirt on. I said I guess at the Casino, and he said come over to my truck I have to show you something acting very high. I wasn't driving but did crank the engine and tried to put the car in gear, and finally had to tell the driver to put their freg'n foot on the break. Most want go into gear unless you do now. Then the guy reached threw the window and pulled on a 800 dollar gold chain the driver had on as we speed away hitting the car with the mag lite.

Reported this attempted theft on cell and met the Sheriff Dept at the Exxon on 271 Paris. He said get a gun and use it if it happens again. I wonder though if you shot someone would you go to the electric chair or gas chamber even if you had a witness since it was not your home and you did not have a concealed weapon permit. Got a 9mm glock 13 shot clip at home, but am leery about taking it in the car. It can push a bullet 1 mile down the road easy. You just have to remember to take the last shell out of the chamber when taking the clip out by turning upside down and shaking. Wish it was full rock'n roll, but we all know that is illegal.

It is good and OK to be cautious. It's not ok to blame the victim of a crime though.

It's the criminals fault, not the victim.

You don't need a concealed carry permit to carry in your vehicle, but pistols must be kept "out of plain sight" while longguns don't matter. Both may be carried loaded anywhere it's legal. Please take a few courses though and learn more about what you have, because there is no Glock in that caliber with a 13 rd mag, and they're called magazines not clips, clips is a hollywood term. If you must "shake" the gun to remove a "round" not shell, then your extractor or ejector is messed up and needs repairing.

I agree with CN68, School and Curious. People need to get involved in whats going on in their neighborhood. Start watch programs, if you see suspicious behavior report it. Dont let criminals take over, intervene of course with protection. Blaming the victims is just, well lame.

You are wrong my friend. I have a Glock 45 cal., Model 21 that has a 13 round magazine.

Such ignorance to blame victims! Too much emphasis on the "poor pitiful upraising of the criminal". Victims are victims, and criminals are criminals and the lawless are to blame everytime, no matter how "stupid" some want to say the victims are. Put me on the jury!

Yes, the criminal committed the crime, but the victim often stupidly makes it awfully easy for him to do it.

Would you say then, that a parent who knows a pedophile lives next door and still allows his 8-year-old to play in the yard unsupervised carries no responsibility when that child is assaulted?
