Here is a headline that perfectly sums up 2022 in a Blue city:

Rape in Atlanta up 236%, murder by 43% in 2022

Atlanta Police Department statistics released last Friday indicate that homicides are up 43 percent for 2022 compared to the same period, from January 1 to February 12, in 2021. In total, there were 20 homicides so far in 2022 compared to 14 last year.

Rapes have soared to 236 percent, with 37 reported so far this year, compared to 11 at the same time in 2021.

Burglaries are up 18 percent from last year, with 229 reported as of February 12 compared to 191 at the same time in 2021, and shoplifting cases are up 4 percent, with 164 cases thus far in 2022 compared to 157 last year. (Police simply don’t respond to a lot of shoplifting cases anymore because of a woefully understaffed force.)

I’m going to type it out longhand so you read it and it sinks in:

Rape in Atlanta is up two hundred and thirty six percent.

It’s only February.

I will say with absolute certainty and zero reservations that every rapist deserves to experience the unique and terrifying agony of a sucking chest wound at the hands of their intended victim.

It’s hard to maintain an erection when suffering from hypovolemic shock.

Since the politicians and prosecutors of Atlanta have failed and the police have cleared given up or been hamstrung, it is up to you to protect yourself and your loved ones from rape.

You have been warned, prepare accordingly.

  1. I have a nit to pick, sir.

    While your percentages are correct, they are misleading. I’m certain that you did not intend to lie with statistics (D. Huff).

    37 rapes is more than 11, but it doesn’t seem like a ‘wave’ in a large city like Atlanta. I was surprised that it was that low last year. Fear of the WuFlu perhaps? 😏

    1. 1) The “other side” doesn’t hesitate for a New York second to present numbers in ways that benefit them the most. See COVID or firearms stats.
      2) This number is more than double what it was compared to last year, so the percentage is not incorrect.
      3) One/1 is too many. Rape is soul murder, even if you survive it.

  2. Then again, it’s 37 too many, and I agree with J. that 37 would-be rapists bleeding out on the pavement is correctly described as “a good start”. (Or, as Niven & Pournelle put it “evolution in action”.)

  3. The “other” worry in democratic run cities is after you ventalate said rapist prepare to raped by prosecutors and every single “news” organization out there… as they used to say years ago- shoot shovel and shut up. Im REALLY suprised drug dealers havent started disappearing….it will probably take citizens to stop these crime waves…

  4. @RapidRobert: I didn’t say that the percentages were incorrect.

    @pkoning: Yes, 37 is too many. One is too many for that victim. OTOH, I’m not opposed to 37 rapists with sudden lead poisoning.

    @J. Kb: Again, not doubting the numbers.

    To all: I guess that I didn’t make my point well enough. (I should give up responding from my tablet.)

    My point is J’s use of the percentages can be interpreted as sensationalizing.

    If there are 5 people in the room and 10 more enter, that’s a 200% increase. There are still only 15 people in the room. One could be just as accurate by saying ’10 more people were in the room’.

    @RapidRobert: noted, that the “other side” does this is exactly the point that irks me. Just like when PotG use anti-Rights media terms (e.g., assault weapon, gun violence) and misstatements (e.g., bullets instead of rounds, victim killed _by_ a gun). I like to think that the viewers of this site are intelligent enough to assess things like 20 homicides is more than 14 homicides. (Perhaps I should have used the homicide numbers instead of rape numbers in my original example.

    I am totally on board that we are our own ‘first responders’.

    If you stayed with me this long, thank you for reading.
