They Just Wanted A Level Playing Field

Anyone who owns Apple products knows they are at least two things. They are quality items and they are expensive. After all, you have to pay for quality. The iPhone, iPad, iPod and all other “i” items are very good and lots of people own them. But some folks are priced out of the market and thus must rely on other tactics to get them. Thus is the case with three poor folks who tried a smash and grab at an Apple store. They broke out a window to steal Apple products and were, unfortunately for them, confronted by an armed guard. When one of the attackers displayed a weapon a gun battle ensued leaving one of the poor folks dead, one in the hospital and one under arrest.

It is unfortunate that these people had to resort to such tactics but it is unfair for them to have to go without an Apple product while others are able to get them. This is America where the left believes we should all be the same and the playing field should be a level one. If the government would not step in to provide Instant Troubled Apple Relief (iTAR) then people have to resort to such things.

In reality these were criminals trying to make a profit off the work of others (much like the left) and they paid a stiff price for their criminal venture.

The truth of the matter is, the poor in this country own lots and lots of Apple products. Those on food stamps and other forms of social assistance routinely display iPhones, iPods, and iPads while waiting to get “their check” (anecdotal based upon conversations with people who work at the agencies that handle such social relief).

The poor in this country, those who think the rich have taken wealth from the poor, (if they are poor where did they get the wealth that was “taken” from them) have all kinds of nice things. They have a place to live, air conditioning, cell phones, other electronic devices, cars and nice clothes. Evidently, they are able to afford these things because they are not bothered by having to pay for pesky things like food or energy.

In any event, a security guard removed a criminal from the gene pool and two others will be facing jail time for murder.

Of course, this is America. They might end up with a slap on the wrist, file a lawsuit against the store and the guard and own all the Apple products they want.

After all, they must have a level playing field though for the life of me I can’t find where that is a guarantee.

Cave Canem!

    Sadly, in America today, the only problem with what the poor folk did is that they didn’t have government permission. See, if they would have had a government agent with them, they could have done exactly what they did without punishment.

    That’s how government in America today works — am unelected bureaucrat decides he wants to “help” people by taking from some people and giving to others. Then he does so, because he is the government, and no one can stop him.
