Communities are going to have to revert to a citizen constabulary. Local folks need to patrol and report problems to a cadre of volunteer cops. If it works for fire departments, why not policing?
Citizen constables. Wonder if they can inquire immigration status? Oh silly me, they are busy working on an amnesty in DC. Guess there will not be illegals here much longer...
That’s how it used to be, over a hundred years ago.
Then, we got “professional” police forces and the citizenry was expected to cower behind locked doors (as evidenced).
Back then, every man was expected to take up arms in defense of himself, his family, his property and his neighbors, if need be.
It was called “civic duty”.
Now it’s called “vigilantism” and “taking the law into your own hands”.
Eric Holder would like a word with you, watch for the drone.
The law. The law, both criminal and civil sue-on-behalf of the criminal, is stacked against private citizen actions. Any mistake--bankruptcy or worse for those who will be called vigilantes.
