Oh my

You ever get so mad that you pick up a metal pole and beat random people?  Yeah, me neither.

Man caught on video assaulting people on 16th Street Mall

"A Facebook video of the attack posted by Caleb Bonham received more than 606,000 views and nearly 3,000 comments by 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. It shows the shirtless man, whose name has not been released, chasing and hitting people on the mall near the McDonald’s on the corner of 16th Street and Cleveland Place."

Seriously, check out the video.  It may be the deciding factor of you decide to conceal carry or leave it home.

It's plastic, lucky for the victims who seem stunned that someone could be feral. It breaks apart at one point because of the impacts.

I'm surprised that no one tacked him, or kept him busy (bull fighter tactics), so he doesn't attack anyone else.

I guess the lesson of situational awareness would be lost on these sheeple.

EBT card must have stopped working; or his dealer wouldn't give him anymore credit for drugs.

Since CO has legalized marijuana this type of thing is becoming much more prevalent. There are daily attacks on the 16th St. mall. Transients have become ubiquitous and violent. They follow folks to ask for money and, if the mark doesn't give them anything, they get attacked. So glad I no longer work down there! It's only a matter of time before bullets fly.

We used to live near there. Thank God, we are now 1,600 miles away from it.

Hahahaha yeah, because we all know how dangerous marijuana makes people. a can of Doritos. I've known plenty of pot smokers, and the few who had problems with pot also had those problems without pot.

Ok, being serious now, do you have any actual statistics to back up your assertions? Nevermind I already know the answer -- "No", because I just took a few minutes to paste some data from the FBI's UCR database into an Excel spreadsheet, weighted the numbers to compensate for changes in population, and guess what:

In Colorado, violent crime and property crime per 100,000 stayed almost exactly the same after decriminalization at the beginning of 2013, as well as after commencement of retail sales at the beginning of 2014.

In Denver, violent crime and property crime per 100,000 both went DOWN slightly in 2013, and DOWN even more sharply in 2014.

Here is a screenshot of the aggregated and processed data:

Here are my sources of the raw state data for Colorado:

...and here are my sources of the raw city data for Denver:

In conclusion, I call rubbish. Go get a job with the Brady Bunch, Anonymous. They groove on your sort of fact-free FUD.

...and if your assertion is that marijuana legalization is somehow associated with a crime spree solely in the 16th St. Mall, please do share your theory as to how the evils of the diabolical devil-weed have managed to manifest themselves with such laser-like focus in this one tiny spot out of the entire city of Denver and the entire state of CO.

@OregonHobo: look up cannabinoid induced psychosis / schizophrenia. Some people, especially long-time users, undergo brain changes that produce these symptoms. Many just can't handle it from the beginning. And it obviously doesn't happen in one place, but making recreational use legal sure does increase the likelihood of it happening more often wherever it's legalized.

JUST LIKE ALCOHOL. Or any of a number of other neurotoxins, psychedelics, etc.

Then again, there are other factors involved if you accept the idea that we interact sub/unconsciously with an unseen dimension and whatever exists there. That will manifest in all kinds of irrational, destructive behavior. And THAT is what will increase as we get closer to complete either economic or sociopolitical collapse.

There's a reason the age-old adage says "Moderation in all things". But most of the monkey-minded people won't control themselves, so the controllers will step in and do it for us.
