Americans beware: Roving gangs of 13-17-year olds (guess the race) are killing elderly people
08/11/2023 // News Editors // Views

The next time you feel a surge of outrage over a crime, and a choir of liberals joins in to shield the bad guy with the excuse, ‘But he’s only 15…,” kindly remember that roving gangs of teens are actively killing elderly people all over the country.  That’s what recently happened in Philadelphia, another liberal-run city that’s turned into a cesspool of hopelessness and soaring crime. A 15-year-old, along with several of his friends, attempted to carjack a couple, and ended up murdering a 50-year-old man in cold blood.

The suspects name is Rasheed Banks, and he was just captured.

Lately, there’s been a growing number of reports about these teens engaging in acts of assault, robbery, and even homicide. And it’s important to note that their targets aren’t solely limited to older Americans. In Jacksonville, a 12-year-old beat his own brother to death. In Michigan, a high school honor-roll student was murdered by 13 and 14-year-olds in a carjacking.

These teen-related crimes have become an epidemic, so what on earth is going on?


Carjackings in the District have surged since the pandemic, in particular incidents that involve teens. This has led to a sense of fear among some DC residents. “I’ve been to too many meetings where people are concerned about public safety,” Mayor Bowser said at a February press conference on the rise in youth-involved carjackings. Regarding carjackings, she said, “The fear and anxiety I hear in our residents, I haven’t heard in a little bit.”

And while the data does reflect a rise in carjackings—the DC police’s online carjacking dashboard suggests that incidents have nearly tripled since 2019—some criminal justice experts urge caution when interpreting these numbers, saying that they don’t represent an out-of-control spiral in youth crime. Neither, they say, do the data paint a holistic picture of the grief and community underinvestment that are causing young people to act out.

The truth is, we’re a society that glorifies criminals and condemns police and good Samaritans. What we’re witnessing right now in America is the rise of the thug. As independent journalist Mike Cernovich points out, remaining vigilant is crucial at all times. It’s essential to remember that appearances can be deceiving, and “youth” doesn’t always equal innocence and kindness. The presence of these roaming gangs is a real concern.

Thankfully, as we mentioned earlier, this pint-sized murderer was captured by U.S. Marshals.


Rasheed Banks Jr. was captured by U.S. Marshals in Camden, New Jersey on Monday, according to investigators.

He was wanted for the July 12 murder of 50-year-old Michael Salerno, who was gunned down on 12th and Porter streets.

Investigators say Salerno was shot when three males were trying to carjack his vehicle. A female friend was inside the car.

“The offenders approached the vehicle, and the offenders were aggressive and violent from the start,” said Lt. Hamilton Marshmond last month.

While trying to stop them, Salerno was shot once in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Salerno was not inside the vehicle at the time of the carjacking, police said.

It appears the suspects may have been looking for a target. Police say they were circling the neighborhood in a Red Kia Soul with out-of-state plates.

There’s a concerning trend of teenage “mob attacks,” whether it’s on individuals in public spaces or inside stores where robbery and looting occur.

Unfortunately, the situation doesn’t seem likely to improve, especially with misguided “leaders” like the progressive bozo currently at the helm in Chicago. The city’s new mayor appears more concerned about offending criminals than prosecuting them.

The New York Post:

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson reportedly snapped at a reporter for calling young rioters a “mob,” insisting they were just “large gatherings” — and that labeling the riots “mob actions” was inappropriate.

“That’s not appropriate,” the newly minted mayor said in response to a reporter’s question about trends like “mob actions” the city has endured.

“We’re not talking about mob actions. I didn’t say that,” Johnson barked back. “These large gatherings … it’s important that we speak of these dynamics in an appropriate way.”

Hundreds of rioters flooded Chicago’s South Loop late Sunday, when teens took over the area for the second time in just a few days — and looted a local convenience store, Fox News Digital reported.

The wisest approach to this nightmarish situation is to remain vigilant and avoid writing someone off as “innocent” just because they’re young. There’s a concerning trend of demonic behavior among American teenagers right now, so it’s crucial to stay on guard, for yourself and your family.
