Details from the Attack:
According to WAVE-TV, a disabled Army veteran, Pamela Ahlstedt-Brown, was brutally attacked when trying to back out of a handicapped space at her local Kroger.
When she tried to speak to the passengers inside a vehicle that was blocking her into the handicapped space, four young black women in a Dodge car, she was first verbally accosted and then physically assaulted. Here’s what she told WAVE-TV:
“I get out and I say, ‘Do you guys need any help?’ and she said, ‘F* you, you white b**.‘ I said, ‘Hold on, you don’t even know me,’ I said, ‘That’s fine. If you don’t need anything, that’s fine. I’ll get back in the car.’”
After that verbal altercation, she was allegedly attacked by the thugs, who threw a cup and its contents at her before brutally kicking and beating her:
“I mean, they were beating me, and I was in a fetal position, covering my face, making sure they didn’t get my eyes. I could have been killed, but I know how to protect myself. I mean, I’m a strong person.” She also told WAVE-TV that she suffered a broken nose during the assault.
WAVE-TV claims that brave strangers in the parking lot, not Kroger security or local police forces, stopped the attack and saved Ahlstedy-Brown from the brutes attacking and viciously beating her.
Also according to WAVE, both Brown and her worried daughter tried to obtain the security camera footage from the attack but the police said “Well, a detective has it, so you can’t get it from Kroger.“
What It Shows:
This attack shows just what is going wrong with America. Whether that’s because things are “unraveling,” as predicted by The Fourth Turning or simply because we don’t like each other anymore, society is getting more violent. Homicides, rapes, and assaults are on their way up. Criminal elements prey on the most vulnerable and the police, besieged as they are by vindictive crowds and anti-police demagogues, are noticeably absent, leaving Americans to defend themselves against those vicious criminals. People yell and scream at each other in public, getting in brutal fights at every venue from parking lots to airport terminals. Things are falling apart.
There was a time when such a brutal assault, especially against a disabled Army veteran, would have made the headlines and viewed with reprehension across the whole of society. Can you imagine what would have happened if four youth beat a World War II veteran to death in 1950? That probably would have ended poorly for the assailants.
But that was a time of community and justice. Back then, we stood up for what was right and deeply respected those who had done deeds worthy of respect. Now, in this degenerate, modern age, we are divided and bickering. Hence why fake news stations won’t report the attack, knowing it will play into the concerns of the right. Because of the race of the victim and attackers, they won’t report it; can you imagine how loudly the NYT and WP would be screaming about this attack if the assailants were white and the victim a disabled black woman? That dichotomy shows just how badly things are going for America.
Even worse, this incident shows the rising racial tensions in America, tensions Biden has done nothing to relieve. There was a time when people looked up to Army veterans, whatever their color. Now, as shown by this attack, race seems to outweigh service to the nation. Just look at what those four brutes said: “F* you, you white b**.” They beat her, an Army veteran who gave up her health and mobility in service of her nation, up simply because of the color of her skin. If that’s not one of the most disgusting showings of racism, then I don’t know what is.
