A north Philly owner was tired of being robbed and having to deal with criminals in the lawless city of brotherly love, so he's taken matters into his own hands.
Since the police and the Democrat city government won't do anything about the crime he has stationed his own security outside of his stores.
I love that the question from the reporter makes it seem like the store would somehow be LESS safe now that it has security.
If I was unfortunate enough to live in Philly, I promise you, this is where I'd fill my car up. No carjackers or robbers are gonna mess around with this store anymore. I guarantee it.
Here's the local Fox story:
Neil Patel, operator of a Karco gas station at Broad and Clearfield streets in North Philadelphia, recruited Pennsylvania S.I.T.E Agents clad with Kevlar vest and AR-15s or shotguns.
"They are forcing us to hire the security, high-level security, state level," Patel told FOX 29. "We are tired of this nonsense; robbery, drug trafficking, hanging around, gangs."
The final straw for Patel came after he said his business was vandalized by young people and an ATM machine was stolen. His car was also a casualty of crime around the area.
"We wear Kevlar, we are trained, my guards go to training every other week, they're proficient with [their guns] and with their taser, they know the law," Chief Andre Boyer said.
Sure, I'd rather live in a city where this type of security was unneeded and superfluous.
But it's a necessity in certain places in our country that have turned into Third-World cesspools.
The cities are becoming lawless hellscapes by design of leftist leaders. It's necessary for people to exercise their rights in order to just survive in these places.
