This is Patriotism

Doing what is good for your home community is patriotic, doing what is good for a community you may only visit once in your life, then, is certainly patriotic.

Beyoncé Knowles' bandmembers chased down a suspected carjacker after he assaulted a 91-year-old driver in a Florida parking lot.

I'm so tired of hearing stories of tired-ass bystanders. The story usually goes something like this: People were just standing around, watching, as I was:

  • robbed

  • beaten

  • raped

  • all of the above?

Mad props to these cats for lookin' out. If every punk on the street knows they are up against a citizenry that won't put up with nonsense, we could be a much better society. I don't want anyone getting shot or stabbed, but I like the idea of us all being in this together, and that means not standing around while someone else gets it handed to them.
