    These opportunistic predators are cruising parking lots everywhere, just waiting to pounce … arm yourselves people … stop being victims …. show no mercy to these animals.

    Well, they do say you never know when something might happen. Get a firearm, get good training, carry always. It’s your God given right to defend yourself. Police are just the clean up crew.
