Video catches home invasion of elderly couple: ‘Old America on television, new America in the living room’

It’s not so much that there is yet another crime wave in America, one could argue this is a cyclical occurrence that comes with Democrats being in power in the country, but it’s the audacity and even cruelty of today’s criminals that really stands out.

Almost with an attitude of entitlement, today’s criminal element will go to any length to acquire ill-gotten booty, as seen in a video out of Virginia making the rounds online.

In the clip, an elderly white couple is in their home watching television when two black men armed with guns walk into the living room — it’s not clear how the crooks got into the home, but they are accompanied by the woman who lives there, suggesting she may have answered the door allowing them to force their way in.

One of the men tells the couple to get in a closet right away.

“Get in the closet right now,” he is heard saying. “Get in the close, I’m not f*cking around!”

The elderly man was sitting on the couch and had a walker. He is slow to react, and the other criminal told him, “Get up, get up,” using his gun to hurry him along.

His presumed wife rushed over to help him out of fear of what may happen next. They get into a closet as the thugs begin rummaging through their home.

The great irony in the footage, as noted by Andrew McCarthy, is what was on the television. The couple was watching what appeared to be a 1950s Western, possibly “Gunsmoke,” and McCarthy aptly tweeted: “Old America on the television. New America in the living room.”

For many Baby Boomers, America is no longer the country they were born into. These people feel lost in a nation that rejects God, has no respect for law and order and are quick to run down America as a force of evil by those who embrace victimhood over self-determination.

With crime surging across the country, there are no safe places. As seen in the video below, you can be even robbed in broad daylight while in the middle of lunch:


On a positive note, police have identified the two suspects, Mitchell Boney Jr., 25, and Tyree Demont Boney Jr., 22, Fox 5 DC reported. They are wanted for Armed Burglary, Use of a Firearm, Abduction, and Conspiracy to Commit a Burglary.

The couple was not injured during the robbery.
