Lots of sandstone homes in Bed Sty. I bet the Russians are buying them, gutting them and rebuilding them. NYC isn’t Detroit. There’s money to be made buying the ghetto homes. However there is the public safety factor to be considered.

"In my new book, an improvised weapon is a big steel hex nut on a yard of paracord."

I very deliberately select my pants belts for flexibility and, dense, heavy buckles. They can make a hell of a weapon, with the added advantage that your knuckles get the added protection of one or two wraps of leather....

I like those big ole cable ties. If your stealthy the zip is the last thing an enemy hears.

You know, the weakest characters get really tough when surrounded by other idiots. I bet that attacker could not stand alone.

This is exactly what the KKK did, gang up and put down others to make themselves big in the own minds.

I think the point was that this young woman had very high aspirations in life and had a lot of talent, only to have thugs try to take her life.

ROTFLOL! No...that might be the point arrived at by some readers of the piece; but the 'journalist' deliberately used 'American Idol' in the title to troll for fans of the show...I'm sure there are many other young men and women who have 'very high aspirations in life' and are brutalized daily, but they are swept under the rug because they didn't try out for 'AI'.

We are talking about 'journalists' here...

Are you really a contestant if you once auditioned? Seems like an attempt to hype this story on the theory that some victims are more equal than others.

You may be right, but in my case, I’ve never seen the show. I was just curious as to what kind of people would do this sort of thing, and found out pretty fast.

What a sick society.

In boot camp, a bar of soap in a sock, maybe not as likely fatal but still dangerous. using a lock is potentially deadly. all the perps need to do serious time.

Decory, Ashanti, and Chazmia. Amish names?

Meanwhile, this is not exactly new. Anybody forget Tanya Harding?

This is so sad. You have a girl truly trying to better herself and 5 hoodrats decide that ain’t cool. Throw the book at those bitches.

You have to understand, the parents are in absentia. The children are raised by the gangs they join.

Then you can forget about education and the justice system. All you can do now, is to plan to meet them one-on-one in your back hallway and hope you survive (having spotted them the initiative and the element of surprise), or go the forehand option and get together with some friends to hunt over bait.

But that would be illegal, maybe even immoral, so of course I am not advocating that.

Anyone else have another idea?

a big steel hex nut on a yard of paracord

(8^D)

A pair of Kenworth lug nuts on a sturdy bootlace can produce some interesting results, too.

Is your new book out yet?

To be used as a premise in an upcoming episode of either, Law and Order, CSI, or most likely, The Good Wife.

Castigo Cay is in the final editing and formatting prior to publication. June maybe?

Interesting variation on the concept of “double rifle”.
