As Democrats continue to clutch their pearls about criminals dealt with harshly by law enforcement officers, average Americans are suffering under the yoke of out of control crime, suffering as savage criminals run free and prey on the defenseless.
Such was obviously the case in bright blue, Democrat-run Atlanta this week when a 77-year-old woman named Eleanor Bowles, a valuable citizen loved dearly by her friends and family, was stolen from them when a black thug named Antonio Brown brutally murdered her in her Buckhead home, stabbing her to death.
Her son, Michael Bowles, appeared on Fox and Friends on Wednesday to discuss the savage murder of his mother and the crime wave that all Americans are suffering under right now. Speaking to Fox News Channel’s Todd Pirro, Mr. Bowles said:
“I think the crime issue in this country is so much bigger than Buckhead. It’s so much bigger than Atlanta. This is happening everywhere. And I will say she did feel safe… and that that’s not unique to Buckhead. I think most of us feel safe in our homes.”
Continuing, Mr. Bowles said“And what we want to explain to people, or I hope people understand, is that none of us right now are as safe as we think we are. Maybe if enough people learn about this story, maybe we can all do something about it.”
Mr. Bowles also commented on Mr. Brown’s arrest and lengthy rap sheet, saying that he should have been dealt with earlier, but wasn’t by the Atlanta government. In his words:
“It took, unfortunately, the worst thing imaginable to finally get him caught. I think that the community can do, and our taxpayer-funded institutions can do a better job of dealing with these people, and maybe he could have been helped earlier on. We don’t know. It’s too late for that now, obviously, but there was a failure there along the way.”
Despite law enforcement’s failure in dealing with Mr. Brown, Mr. Bowles praised them during his interview with Pirro, saying:
“I want to take this moment to really express my gratitude to them and to tell everyone that’s listening to this, the police officers that work across this country deserve our support. That’s a huge problem right now. They want to help. I can tell you that. They want to help. They don’t have the support that they need, and I think it’s on us to do to help change that.”
Indeed they don’t, though perhaps that support would be more forthcoming were they to get savages like Antonio Brown off the streets for good rather than leaving them free to prey on law-abiding citizens around the country.
Mr. Bowles found his dead mother’s body in the garage of her Buckhead home over the weekend. She had been left there by Antonio Brown, a 23-year-old black man (“inner-city youth” in PC parlance) after he stabbed her to death and stole her car, a 2021 Lexus in which he fled the scene of the crime. Brown was out of prison despite having an extensive rap sheet.
