Gee THANKS, Boston PD!

I received an email from my university, which passed on a "Spring Break Safety Message and CRIME ALERT" from the Boston Police Department.

After the obligatory, "If you're leaving for spring break, make sure to lock all your doors and windows and ask a neighbor to keep an eye on your house..." stuff, they went on to mention that there have been some muggings around various T stops, especially in the east side of town. Then came this gem:

As you walk around Boston anytime, please always be aware of your surroundings and should you be approached comply with the perpetrators request.  Your life is always more valuable than your property.

They also go on to say that should you be a victim of a crime, to report the incidence immediately to the nearest police station. They don't add the qualifier "should you be ALIVE after the attack". But they should.

Well, you know what BPD? With all due respect:


FUCK YOU.



Take your asinine advice-for-sheep and shove it where the sun don't shine...assuming your head leaves enough room.

I guess it works better than
"Welcome to Boston. While you're here, try not to get killed."

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! If more people fought back and less people compliantly followed the demands of criminals, we'll be better off as a society. An individual may end up worse off here or there, but on the whole we'll move forward to better things. And I'd rather live with the knowledge I did what I could to make things better than live with the knowledge that I was a coward.

Suldog, you, like me, would rather die on your feet than live on your knees! (And that goes for all of my other friends, too.)

Oh right, because you should just blindly assume that someone who will threaten bodily harm against you for "just your stuff" is really a kind, good hearted person who wouldn't hurt a fly....

Morons.

C'mon, Mike! Don't you know that they're just poor, misunderstood youth?
