I'm not trying to be mean or put you down, but, you need to get lessons in self defense and Man up.
A good case, down here, a couple years ago, a group of Tourists landed on a Cruise ship, in Limon. That's another Vegas style city. Good areas and bad, mostly of the darker persuasion. As the group was waiting for the Tour Bus to arrive, 3 punks came up and started robbing the group of sheep. Problem is, one was a RAM- A RETIRED MARINE, who promptly broke the neck of the most aggressive of the 3, and as he hit the ground, deader than a turd, the other 2 broke and ran. Police were called, and, after investigating, ( another joke) the group was told to enjoy their stay.
MOST attackers are cowards, especially those that attack from behind. Recently, there are robberies on the Busses. I ride the Busses, and, if someone wants to rob me, they better be prepared to get their nuts drove up to their tonsils and then I will put them out like a cigarette. I don't give a shit about ANYONE that wants to cause me harm.
I saw the difference in attitudes and the races, as I was leaving Viet Nam and came back to the world. I am TOTALLY qualified to handle myself, even at near 68 years old. There is always pick-pocketing going on. I nearly lost my wallet one time, BUT, if I ever catch someone trying to pick me, I WILL rob them, strip them naked, kick their sorry asses, and throw all THEIR stuff into the crowd. Police be damned. They know whats going on, just prefer to not have to do anything about it.
I know there are some here, that are of African Heritage, so, I hope they are not offended by what I say, but, there HAS to be extermination of a majority of these lawless thugs. I don't mean random, but, Drug dealers, users, killers, rapists, violence of ANY kind. You read about people being arrested and they are on the streets within a couple of hours. They have a list of violations longer than they are tall.
The Judicial system HAS to be the first place to start. Judges are wimps, Lawyers are only after the $$$$ and prisons are vacation spots. IF a judge releases a rapist, because some cop didn't dot an I or cross a T, that rapist should be confined IN that judges house, for a minimum of 30 days. I would bet THAT will grow some hair on these judges asses.
A good case is Clinton. In impeachment hearings, he was asked about something and his comment was, "that depends on what the definition of IS is. Most people laughed and he got away with his impeachment hearing , so he stayed in office. NO ONE CARES, anymore. I moved here for economic reasons, after my pension was sacked by Wall Street thugs. I live on next to nothing, BUT, what I have is MINE and I'll be DAMNED if any SOB is going to deprive me of a decent life. We need NO A/C No Heat, about to be on an E-Bike, and OFF grid, nearly, so, make up your mind to DO something. Sell whatever you have, MOVE to a better area, rural is usually better, learn how to GET BY, if needed, and enjoy what few years you have left. Land is affordable here. You are single. There are thousands of educated, intelligent women here. I married one of them. She takes excellent care of me. She has a friend looking for a GODD American man. She is tired of Ticos. Want an introduction ???
My sincere apologies to ANYONE That I may have offended, or not, depending on your own political and liberal views.
We can carry this much further in PM's, if anyone is interested. Don't call names and I will respond. BE CIVIL.
That's MY take on how to get Heelllp.
