Know Who Your Real Buddies Are

Esplanade Avenue attacks on cyclists involving baseball bats scare area bikers |

“This was someone who was vulnerable,” Eskew said. “People riding very early in the morning are vulnerable. They could be tired, they could be out drinking. It looks like a random attack, but these people were riding alone, and the people who perpetrated it did it on purpose, looking for an easy target.”

Simply riding a bicycle doesn’t make a person a target, Eskew said, and there are ways to ride safely in the city.

“People have to be aware of what’s going on,” he said. “There’s safety in numbers, and everyone should use a buddy system.”

I favor a buddy system in which my buddy is something in a .357 caliber or better.  Especially since it now looks as if the usual suspects are upping the scope of their “knockout games.”

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
