The city, state and federal officials who have ceded parts of cities, pulled back the police, and given the mob tacit approval to commit virtually any crime (short of disturbing a mayor in her home) are going to profess outrage, revulsion, and horror when previously law-abiding, tax-paying citizens decide they’ve had enough.
Those instances will be portrayed as shocking disregard for the rule of law and a disturbing rejection of the societal norms that allow us all to coexist and live together in peace.
A hero steps out of the mists to show us all The Way.
Police won’t protect us. It’s time to admit our only defense is self-defense, and the only help we can expect is self-help. And to mutually vow to each other that we will never, ever convict someone for resorting to self-help, if we’re on someone’s jury.
Either the state will enforce the law and protect us, or we’ll protect ourselves, and protect those who protect themselves. Period.
The officials sworn to protect the civil peace have instead decided to protect the bandits and looters and arsonists. Instead of prosecuting them for their crimes, they nullify the law and let them out the next morning.
We can nullify the law too, guys. You’re not the only ones who can set aside the law and free people for what might, in other times, be considered crimes of violence.
If you won’t prosecute looters, arsonists, and insurrectionists, we will not convict those who use violence to stop looters, arsonists, and insurrectionists, or use violence (as here) just to fucking get home without being illegally held-up by bandits blocking the road like old-time highwaymen and road-thieves.
The state has decided we will be ruled by the mob.
But we never agreed to that. The Constitution says that we will rule ourselves, through our elected officials. Not to the violent insurrectionists and anarchists the police and government have turned the streets over to.
