Is America Becoming The Sex Crime Capital Of The Western World?

Many Americans tend to talk derisively about less civilized nations, but the truth is that we have now become a “less civilized nation” that other countries are mocking.  Yesterday, I discussed a number of different signs that the fabric of our society is unraveling all around us, but today I would like to focus specifically on sex crimes.  The average American watches 238 minutes of television a day, and thanks to all of that “programming” the way that our society views sex and sexual activity has been permanently warped.  Hundreds of thousands of Americans have been convicted of sex crimes, child abuse is rampant in our nation, and at this point our major cities are absolutely teeming with sexual predators.

Let me give you some numbers that will hopefully help you to understand what I am talking about.

Every year, there are more reported rapes in the United States than anywhere else in the world, but in order to compare ourselves fairly with other countries we need to look at the number of rapes per 100,000 people.

When we do that, the U.S. still does not compare very favorably with other major western nations

Australia 28.60
Belgium 27.90
United States 27.30
New Zealand 25.80
Iceland 24.70
Norway 19.20
Israel 17.60
France 16.20
Finland 15.20
Mexico 13.20
Luxembourg 11.90
Ireland 10.70
Austria 10.40
Germany 9.40
Netherlands 9.20
Italy 7.60
Denmark 6.40
Poland 4.10
Portugal 4.00
Spain 3.40
Russia 3.40
Greece 1.90
Canada 1.70

As you can see, Australia and Belgium are still just ahead of the U.S., but with the way violent crime is spiking in our major cities this year I expect that we will take over the number one position very soon.

I know that Russia is not a “western nation”, but I included Russia on the list because many Americans consider them to be “the bad guys”.

Well, we have a rape rate that is about 8 times higher than they do.

And just look at the number for Canada.

Compared to our neighbor to the north, we have a rape rate that is more than 15 times larger.

What is wrong with us?

Nobody can deny that we are very, very sick as a society.  In the United States today, there are more than 917,000 registered sex offenders.  I don’t know if I even have the words to describe how horrific that number is.

And please keep in mind that those are just the ones that have been caught and convicted.

How many more are out there that haven’t been caught yet?

I suppose that one way that we can reduce the number of sex crimes being reported in our society is by legalizing criminal activity, and this is an approach that New York City is currently taking

This open-air sex market has operated in plain sight on Friday and Saturday nights for months. The women, many likely trafficking victims, stop drivers who line up for their services. Their pimps pull the strings from the shadows.

The authorities largely turn a blind eye to it all — amid a shift away from cracking down on prostitution, a Post investigation has found.

This is what our country is becoming.

What a shame.

Of course I don’t want to just single out those that are involved in prostitution, because the very next “normal looking guy” that you meet online could be a sexual predator

A woman who was sexually assaulted and held captive for three days by a man she met on Tinder was rescued by a good Samaritan who found her screaming for help in the street in Oakland, California.

The victim ran for several blocks crying out in Maxwell Park on Monday before Oakland resident Erik Schulz finally stepped in to help her, Schulz wrote in a post on NextDoor this week.

After hearing the screams and searching for the source Schulz said he found the woman, who has not been named, ‘shaking, crying and almost incoherent’.

But at least she got out alive.

In other cases, women do not survive such encounters…

Police were led to a woman’s dismembered remains buried on the property of a home in Missouri by a teenage girl who has accused the homeowner of sexual abuse.

The teenager told police she learned that 40-year-old Michael Hendricks had killed a woman and hid her body. She also was shown photos of a woman’s dismembered body, the girl told investigators.

It has never been more difficult to be a single woman in America.

Of course it is not easy being a single man either.

There are psychos, lunatics, addicts, predators and sickos everywhere around us, and it is getting worse with each passing year.

As I have said so many times, the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted on a daily basis is steadily disappearing, and everywhere we look we can see evidence that our society is collapsing.

But instead of putting more police officers in the streets, some of our largest cities are now trying “alternative” methods to deal with our growing societal ills.

For example, the city of Chicago will soon be sending out “mental health professionals” to deal with many 911 calls

Mental health professionals will be sent out to respond to some 911 calls in Chicago instead of cops, following defund the police protests and a number of police killings of mentally-unwell people.

The city is launching a two-part ‘alternative response’ pilot program this fall that takes a more public health approach to responding to 911 calls for mental health emergencies.

Good luck with all that.

What are those mental health professionals supposed to do?  Are they going to quote Freud while the criminals are shooting at them?

The blind are leading the blind, and our society is descending into chaos.

In my brand new book entitled “7 Year Apocalypse”, I have an entire chapter in which I discuss America’s relentless decline.  I have been working very hard on this new book for months, and I am so excited to finally be able to share it with all of you.

There is no future for our country if we stay on the path that we are currently on, and I think that most people understand this at least to a certain extent.

We are literally committing national suicide in thousands of different ways, and yet there are so few voices that are sounding the alarm.

Sadly, we are now at a point where time is very short, and most of the population is still in a very deep state of denial.

Social Decay + Illegal Immigration + Poverty = Open War On The Streets Of America

Open War On The Streets Of America - Photo by Javier RamirezWhat did you think was going to happen?  Moral standards have been falling for decades, we have allowed massive hordes of criminals, gang members and drug dealers to enter this country illegally, and thanks to our declining economy our inner cities are being absolutely ravaged by poverty.  Was such a combination really going to produce peace and prosperity?  Should we be so shocked that we now have open war on the streets of America?  In the United States today, there are millions upon millions of young people that can’t find jobs, that are living in poverty, that have no hope for a better future, and that have been raised without any moral standards.  These young people are becoming increasingly desperate, and desperate people do desperate things.  As I wrote about the other day, for those under the age of 18 living in the city of Detroit the poverty rate is 60 percent.  Should we be surprised that Detroit police are now telling people to “enter Detroit at your own risk“.  At this point, the FBI says that there are approximately 1.4 million gang members living in our cities.  That number has risen by an astounding 40 percent just since 2009.  Did we somehow delude ourselves into thinking that there would not be severe consequences for allowing that to happen?  Today,  Mexican drug cartels are active in more than 1,000 U.S. cities.  Are they selling drugs and committing crimes in the area where you live?  Well, don’t be so shocked.  The federal government has left our border with Mexico wide open for decades even though the most violent drug war on the planet has been raging just across that border.  Stupid decisions produce stupid results.  Sadly, this is just the beginning.  When our economy fully crashes the open warfare on the streets of America is going to get much, much worse.

Let’s take a closer look at what is currently happening in a few of our largest cities…

Los Angeles

Did you know that Latino gangs are systematically pushing black families out of some areas of Los Angeles?

For example, once upon a time Compton was a predominantly African-American area.  But now it is 65 percent Latino, and there is a relentless campaign of intimidation against many of the African-American families that remain.

One of these incidents was recently profiled in the Los Angeles Times.  A black family moved into Compton near the end of December, and since that time they have been the victims of endless harassment by Latino gangs.  When a 19-year-old African-American friend came to visit the family one day, four thugs told him that blacks were barred from the neighborhood and they started beating him with metal pipes.  A story in the Los Angeles Times described what happened next…

The 19-year-old family friend managed to break free that first day and run into the house, where the children were the only ones at home.

The attackers left, but a half-hour later a crowd of as many as 20 people stood on the lawn yelling threats and epithets. A beer bottle crashed through the living room window as the youngsters watched in horror.

“They were scared if they called the sheriff they’d be killed,” Westin said. “So they called their mom, who called the Sheriff’s Department.”

The gang members were gone by the time deputies arrived, but they kept coming back, almost daily, driving by slowly until they got someone’s attention, then yelling racial insults and telling them to leave. The mother sent the children to live with relatives and is now packing up to leave herself.

As horrifying as that sounds, the truth is that it is not an isolated incident.

According to the Los Angeles Times, similar attacks “have taken place in Harbor Gateway, Highland Park, Pacoima, San Bernardino, Canoga Park and Wilmington, among other places.”

Oakland

Up the coast in Oakland, a horribly violent gang war has gotten so out of hand that city officials are holding press conferences about it.

Violent crime in the city of Oakland increased by 23 percent in 2012, and police say that gang members were responsible for most of the approximately 2,000 robberies and 65 homicides that took place in the second half of the year.

As the San Francisco Chronicle recently explained, the violence continues to escalate and city officials don’t know how to solve it…

Nearly all the violent crimes in Oakland in the last few months, including two killings over the weekend, have been committed as part of a “war” between rival groups that was sparked by the slaying of a girl last summer, Police Chief Howard Jordan said Monday.

Jordan said “about 90 percent” of the killings, robberies, shootings and other “senseless acts of violence” in the city since mid-2012 can be directly tied to the killing of a girlfriend of one of the combatants.

Over time, the warring factions have become increasingly violent and have grown in number, sometimes by merging with other groups, Jordan said at a news conference called in response to an outbreak of gunfire over the weekend.

Chicago

Savage murders happen so regularly in Chicago at this point that very few people are even shocked by the headlines any longer.  The murder rate in the city increased by about 17 percent in 2012, and 2013 has already started with quite a bang.

Just check out what happened on Saturday.  7 people were murdered and six others were left wounded.  The following is how the Chicago Tribune described one of the crime scenes…

On West Van Buren Street, a body could be seen lying in the roadway, near the curb and a bus stop.

A man who only identified himself as the teen victim’s uncle said the boy, whose family lived nearby, had simply gone to run an errand.

“He was just going to the store,” the man said. “They just killed him just like that.”

Later, the man paced back and forth on the sidewalk, shaking his head in disbelief.

So why has Chicago become such a violent city?

It is because of the gangs.

Today, approximately 80 percent of all murders that happen in the city of Chicago are gang-related.  And as I have written about previously, there are only about 200 police officers assigned to Chicago’s Gang Enforcement Unit to handle the estimated 100,000 gang members living in the city.

Perhaps Chicago could do more to handle all the crime if they had more money, but at this point they are flat broke and so is the entire state of Illinois.  In fact, the state of Illinois just had its credit rating downgraded once again.

I picked out three examples to discuss above, but similar things could really be said about hundreds of U.S. cities from coast to coast.

Once upon a time, gang activity was fairly limited to certain pockets of the country.  But now, it is more widespread than ever.

According to the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center,  Mexican drug cartels were actively operating in 50 different U.S. cities in 2006.

By 2010, that number had skyrocketed to 1,286.

Are you starting to get the picture?

So why doesn’t the federal government secure the border and make sure that everyone that is coming into this country is doing so legally?

That is a very good question.  For some reason, every single president that we have had in recent decades has chosen to leave the U.S. border with Mexico virtually wide open.

And so millions of criminals, gang members, drug dealers and welfare parasites continue to pour into the country.  The following is what one local police chief down in Texas is saying about what he is seeing along the border…

The problem is not going away.

“Most of them have people here or they’re just trying to make it over here so they can start making a better living for themselves,” La Joya Police Chief Julian Gutierrez told Action 4 News.

No matter how many miles of border fence is erected—it seems nothing will stop the thousands of immigrants, crossing our border illegally, from continuing their journey.

“A lot of times we talk to them and ask them why they’re coming here,” Gutierrez explained. “They say they’re coming for the ‘American Dream.’ I always tell them that they’re here illegally—how do they expect to find work? They always say it’s a lot better than their country.”

So what is the Obama administration doing about this?

They don’t consider it to be a problem.

In fact, one of our stations along the border with Mexico will no longer be manned with real people at all.  The following is from a recent ABC News report

Get ready for the very first “unmanned” border station on the U.S.-Mexico border. Slated to open at the end of this month, the Big Bend National Park in Texas will be staffed by, you guessed it, computers.

But what the Obama administration does seem to be concerned about is giving immigrants lots of “benefits” once they get here.

For example, did you know that the federal government actually has a website that teaches immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States?

Meanwhile, we can’t even come close to taking care of our own citizens.  According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are more than 146 million Americans that are considered to be either “poor” or “low income” at this point.

Poverty is absolutely exploding in this country, and the middle class gets smaller with each passing day.  When the next major economic downturn strikes, the unemployment numbers are going to start spiking again and millions of families are going to lose all hope that things will ever turn around for them.

Meanwhile, the very foundations of our society continue to rot and decay right in front of our eyes.  At this point, approximately one out of every three children in the U.S. lives in a home without a father.  The U.S. has the highest divorce rate in the world, the highest rate of teen pregnancy in the world, and there are 19 million new STD infections in the United States every single year.

Our nation is a complete and total mess, and many of our major cities are being transformed into gang-infested war zones that are on the verge of total meltdown.

Is it any wonder that millions of American families have chosen to become preppers?

Nothing is going to stop the societal meltdown that is coming.  That is especially true with Barack Obama running things.

Sadly, most Americans still have their heads in the sand and are pretending that everything will be okay somehow.

Sadly, most Americans still have a tremendous amount of faith in the system.

But anyone with a brain should be able to see the storm clouds that are coming.

So get prepared while you still can.

Time is running out.
