Breakdown of Law and Order: “We Can’t Depend On the Police Department”
SHTF Plan ^ | 2/27/13 | Mac Slavo

Posted on 02/27/2013 3:41:25 PM PST by Kartographer

With criminals running rampant, when seconds count, police are often minutes away:

KPIX 5 cameras caught up with a half dozen neighbors in East Oakland’s Arcadia Park neighborhood Monday as they walked the streets on the lookout for crime. The vigilance has never seemed more necessary than now; 25 homes in the neighborhood have been burglarized over the last two months alone.

In a neighborhood that has started to feel like the wild west, people have even started posting “wanted” signs.

“You have to walk around in your house with a gun to feel safe here,” said Alaska Tarvins of the Arcadia Park Board of Directors.

The people who live in the area are nothing if not gutsy, but they need help. A plan to gate their community has been stalled. With the police force stretched painfully thin, they may be forced to follow other Oakland neighborhoods and hire private guards.

“We don’t have a choice. Either die or we hire some security ourselves, because we can’t depend on the police department,” said Tarvins.

With armed criminals running rampant, when seconds count, police are often minutes away...

So let's disarm law abiding Americans.

“We don’t have a choice. Either die or we hire some security ourselves, because we can’t depend on the police department,” said Tarvins.

Here's a wild idea: Arm yourselves and skip the "hiring private security" option. (If your state doesn't allow it, throw the bums that are disarming you out of office.) Ever heard of DIY?

Bars for your windows are a good investment, along with reinforced doors....Mine are quite decorative!

Its past time to start making your home (and office, if its your property) more 'invasion-proof'.
When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away!

Buy a double-barreled shotgun and fire two shots in the air.

Call Joe Biden in the morning.

With cities, towns and their respective state governments having overspent billions of dollars over the last decade, many are so broke they have no choice but to lay off emergency services employees that include cops and medical first responders.

If these agencies didn't pay out such lucrative pensions plus medical after retiring at 55 or so, they'd have money to protect the taxpayers today. When the economy declines further, things will only get worse.

Arm yourself.

That's one part of the plan; the other is to organize the criminals. It's been done before in other times, in other places.

“In Oakland, Chicago, D.C., Houston, etc, etc...The Walking Dead is here. Now.”

Do you know for a fact that Houston has laid off a bunch of officers like Oakland and Chicago and Detroit has? Is that what you are saying?

No, I don’t know that for a fact and that’s not what I’m saying or even inferring. I’m saying that the Obama phone mutts are growing in boldness in every major metro area acoss the country, and that Houston, Dallas and even Austin are not exempt from the same level of ciminal activity as depicted in the article of this thread. When the mutts go full tilt feral, there simply won’t be enough cops to go around no matter where you are- even in metro Texas.

Get 2-3 large barking dogs as a warning system.

Has anyone else noticed that people don’t respect property lines or fences these days?

Joe's adapted his advice for these rapidly changing times. Now it's shoot through doors.

Nor mailboxes...have had little juevenile delinquents from an apartment complex down the road go thru mine several times now.
They tossed it all on the road.
Post Office said all I could do would be get video of them doing it.
I know who they are. If Ø had a son, he would look like the kids trashing my mail...
