The transformation taking place inside American cities is at odds with what’s expected of a first world country.
And things are only getting worse.
Now, Joe Biden’s America just hit a new low as a third world staple gains popularity.
Businesses in a niche market within the automotive industry have an inside peek into what’s happening in urban areas around the nation.
It seems urban riots and ongoing crime is creating a new domestic demand for armored vehicles.
The CEO of Utah based Armor Max says his domestic business is suddenly booming as life in America becomes more volatile.
Now an increasing number of Americans are looking to protect themselves from increasingly dangerous situations.
Armored vehicles are becoming a hot commodity
“It used to be the feeling it would never happen to us in our country. You’re seeing more events, whether in Los Angeles, Chicago, or New York—they’re just seeing more events. They want to protect their family. They want peace of mind,” Burton explained in an interview with The Epoch Times.
“Now, they’re seeing [third-world level crime] does happen in America,” he added. “It’s one of those situations where they don’t think it will improve. The trend we see is it doesn’t look like it. It’s like Pandora’s Box.”
James Jamila, The Armored Group’s North America Manager also says the 2020 Black Lives Matter riots caused demand for the company’s vehicles to spike—and it doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.
“It’s going to increase,” Jamila told the news outlet. “It has been increasing steadily because every year, it’s more evident the risk is there. You have the home intrusion or smash-and-grab street incidents. You have the daily commuters in the downtown core of whatever major metropolitan area surrounded by weirdos—all sides.”
According to Jamila the increased need for security on the road is being felt by Americans from all walks of life.
“It’s a full spectrum—from employed, retired, to business owners. They range from blue collar to white collar, to small, medium, and large business owners,” he explained.
The total lack of respect for private property exhibited during the 2020 riots has spilled over into mob thefts and a record high number carjackings.
According to the Council On Criminal Justice vehicle thefts skyrocketed over the past three years by a stunning 59% in 30 major US cities.
Of course, big blue cities are hurting the most with Denver leading the pack with a 179% increase in vehicle thefts over a three-year period.
Thanks to skyrocketing crime, life in blue America is feeling less like it’s the land of the free—and more like a lifestyle under siege.
