Your City, USA—During Post slavery and Civil War Reconstruction, law enforcement was primitive and significantly challenged. Crime was out-of-control and there were insufficient police resources to deal with it. The only immediate answer was to draft a vigilante militia force to protect the public.
The first significant response was the creation of the Ku Klux Klan. They took a pretty much a terrorist approach wearing their hoods to conceal their identities.
The Klan slowed down crime all right. It was in part because the sight of alleged offenders hanging from various trees that made quite an impression.
There was only a couple of problems in that there was a lack of due process, trials and accordingly no appeals. Punishments were influenced by anger, prejudice and the amount of alcohol that Klan members were consuming.
The Klan was quite popular and many of our respected Democrat Congressmen were members. They were invited to parade as heroes in our Capitol. Make no mistake Democrats created and continued with the Klan until recent times.
The Klan proved to be a violent blight in America with their seemingly total immunity to laws. The cure was to begin arresting and prosecuting them over lynchings and terrorism. However, when their cases went to trial, jurors were not inclined to convict their, “First responding” heroes.
Things began to change when local police multiplied and took over the reins of policing communities. The newly formed FBI waged a successful war on the Klan. Finally in the 60’s. 70’s and 80’s the Klan was driven out of business. Today they are no longer the heroes, but only a detested memory of a very dark past.
Today, our Democrat politicians have let thousands upon thousands of violent criminals out of jails and prisons. Likewise, the dangerous mentally ill are allowed to roam the streets without medication or supervision. Finally, our police have been castrated and forbidden to be more than just scarecrows. As a result strong armed, mass violent shoplifting attacks against retail establishments with zero consequences now plagues every major city.
Under these circumstances, with no government intervention the only tool for our survival is a return to local vigilante militias to take over the protection and public safety duties. Why you ask? There’s no other solution. Apparently, we’ve not learned from history.
This cannot end well.
