    Just last week, most of the nation's high school were letting out for the Summer. Teenagers who are not disciplined and feel like the world owes them something will be looking at any opportunity to steal or hurt someone such as the elderly. Stories like these are happening, way too often.


    In addition, May 29, 2014, an elderly couple was followed home from Emerald Downs Casino after winning $ 500. That evening the robbery did not succeed in getting the cash or winning the fight, Because the husband and wife stated, “They were not going to let the robbers win, so they fought back, within seconds, the criminal fled.


    Jan, 27, 2014, Two elderly women leaving a Buddhist Temple were pistol whipped and robbed.

    May 16, 2014 , Atlanta, GA. Elderly lady was carjacked in front of a store in the broad daylight pulled to the ground caused gash in her head . What else must happen to our elderly mothers and fathers, before our streets are safe enough for the young and old, like?
