Remember, Kids...

...guns simply have no place in a civilized society.

Macomb County Sheriff Detectives are looking for 20 to 30 young men who attacked and robbed a motorist Saturday night may also be responsible for several other crimes that took place the same night.

The incident took place when a 29-year old man, and his wife, were driving on North River Road when more than two dozen men wearing ball caps and baggy shorts spread out across the street and blocked traffic. The victim tried to drive past them and someone threw a brick in his window. He stopped his car and got out to see what happened and was beaten unconscious and left with a fractured skull.

Thank God neither of the victims was carrying a gun! Someone could've been hurt.

Now, I know hindsight is 20/20, but I gotta think getting out of the vehicle might not have been the best thing to do. On the other hand, had he plowed right through the peacefully assembled group of choirboys murderous mob to escape to safety, which I'd probably have done as soon as the brick came through the window, there'd be some in the community Perpetual Victimhood Society who would call for him to be prosecuted for hate crimes.
