LAPD Tell Citizens To Surrender To Robbers Who Follow Them Home

LAPD advised potential robbery victims (both at home and in public) to essentially give up if and when the robbery happens. This comes on the heels of a string of robberies in big-ticket shopping areas like Melrose. Victims were watched and targeted based on the types of cars they drive and also the jewelry they wear. Some of the victims were even followed home from these expensive areas. LAPD says that nothing on a person’s body is worth the person’s life, so the best thing to do is cooperate with the robbery. This is actually sound advice for more people. The problem comes in when the robbers follow a person home.

California, especially the city areas like Los Angeles, have very strict gun laws. Obtaining a legal weapon can be difficult. And when a weapon is obtained in California, there are strict laws that control its usage. One odd law in California says that all weapon magazines are capped at ten rounds. This makes sense for typical 9mm handguns because ten rounds is generally the standard size for a magazine. However, when it comes to rifles like an AR15, ten rounds simply does not make sense. 30-round magazines are standard for the aforementioned types of rifles. Even if the size of rounds were increased to the standard 30 in California, there would still be an issue with ammunition. Regulations have made ammo scarce and very expensive in the Golden State.

Allowing robbers free reign to roam once they approach a victim’s home is beyond dangerous. The most obvious problem here is the fact that these people may want more than personal belongings. Kidnapping for ransom is not a thing of the past only to be seen in gangster movies. Human trafficking is very real and a serious problem all over the country. Especially in areas where prosecuting lower-level crimes is not a priority. Because low-level criminality left unchecked quickly evolves into high-level criminality as criminals are always pushing their boundaries. LAPD should advise these people to become armed to protect their homes but then the pesky gun laws and regulations come into the picture.

The types of people who are being targeted by organized robbery rings generally support leftist political movements like Black Lives Matter. The rallying cry for BLM (and far-leftist politicians) has been “defund the police”. If these people get their way and police in Los Angeles are defunded, then that means crime will rise. The robberies these affluent people are suffering from are due, in large part, to their own political action. Police cannot be everywhere at all times to protect everyone, this is true. However, police presence can surely cut down on the sheer amount of crime that is currently plaguing LA County and other cities in the state. The crime situation is much worse for people in lower-income areas as they deal with more aggravated, violent crime than their well-to-do fellow citizens. All of this in the name of “progress”.

  1. years ago, they told store clerks to not resist, just give um what they want. well they shot the clerks anyway. and robberies escalated out of sight very rapidly. not a good solution.

  2. 15 – 20 round capacity is standard for compact (Glock 19/CZ P-10C size) to full-size (Glock 17/CZ P-10F size) 9mm handguns. 10 -13 round capacity is more common among the smallest sub-compact 9mm like the SIG P365 or S&W M&P Shield Plus and (increasingly the .380 pocket pistols like the Ruger LCP Max).

  3. It’s easy to be laizez-faire and give non-sensical advice like this when you’re not the one with the gun shoved in your face being yelled at to hand it over. The only ones able to aqcuire the appropriate amount of armed self-protection in L.A. are the wealthy and connected. Like in every one of these communist-run cities, the regular people are left out in the cold with no recourse but to take it. I know that not everybody votes to elect the morons that are in charge, but unfortunately everybody has to live with their policies, hence the mass exodus. I see signs of it here in San Antonio even. I don’t it will be long before Texas is like California. It’s the uneducated masses in blue cities pushing the political class to the left. It’s inevitable in the end.
