Mob Crimes – Organized Lawlessness is the Rage Part IV
If you have followed my blogs on the law of retaliation, revenge and common law, you will understand where this particular part of my concern falls into the picture. The world has changed dramatically since 2009. Crime is spiraling out of control throughout parts of the world as police officers, brave men, and women, have been faced with a new high level of lawlessness than ever experienced before.
Even the police are protesting and denouncing to what they say are insufficient, inadequate resources to fight the mounting insurgency, lawlessness and defiance of government everywhere. From Paris to London, Washington DC to LA, they are unable to stop the unauthorized protests and demonstrations that so often lead to violence, assaults, and arson.
Whether you believe it or not, Donald Trump is right – this election is about law and order. The government has lost control of its people and the direct cause can only be blamed on inconsistency in the enforcement of laws and the permissive culture of the bureaucracy in the state and federal governments. This kind of complacency of enforcement has impacted immigration, social order and terrorist-type of perils.
Today, the police are more focused on terrorist plots, active shooter cases and mass demonstrations than the enforcement of law and order within the communities. They have neither the resources nor the funding to handle it all.
Political opponents have seized on the discontent to accuse the government of letting violent crime and everyday lawlessness proliferate despite a large police recruitment drive in various countries as well as large cities inside the USA. Resignations are happening on two ends of the continuum of law enforcement. Letters of resignation from dissatisfied police officers are growing exponentially. These men and women, who risk their lives daily to protect and serve, are being victimized and criminalized by their own insiders.
Today, they are being criticized for their actions and decisions as the government turned weak policies into even weaker ones. The second element of dissatisfaction is from the people who are being provoked by political groups to create racial unrest and civil disobedience marches turned violent. The streets are unsafe to walk or travel and the number of attacks is mounting.
This is the anger of the police. They are experiencing a gross erosion of their authority through weak government actions and support. The respect for cops has been diminished as their role in the community goes beyond the parameters of their own abilities to take control of their assigned duties responsibilities.
The thinning of the blue line leaves few options open for the government not to use military troops to supplement law enforcement. This is a very unpopular move but one that is being considered every time a neighborhood goes up in flames by riots in the streets. To make matters worse, police and soldiers throughout the world are being deployed to boost airport security and other vital spots where public transportation or assembly is a great concern for safety from militant Islamic attacks in which hundreds of people have died from already in the past two years and the count is rising.
Thousands of police and soldiers have been deployed to boost security at airports, train stations, and schools after a string of militant Islamist attacks in which more than 230 people have died in the past two years. So far, the police officers of our communities have held their own fighting crime but are stretched so far out at times, stress, fatigue, and morale is becoming serious concerns for tomorrow.
A stressed cop is always a concern for the citizen as they are human like us and react to events the best they can but without the benefit of the doubt that we give others. They are always held to a higher decorum or standard than other citizens. We strap body cameras on them to observe them enforce the codes of conduct for law enforcement as well as the citizen but criticize them more harshly than the person breaking the law.
Society has turned the morality of good versus evil around to where evil prevails in many cases. Rather than focusing on the criminal, the camera is used to review and hold the officer to a higher level of restraint and constraint while the criminal acts out in a most violent and brutal fashion. This has demoralized many police agencies and caused many vacancies within major police departments.
Our society is now focusing on the cops and how they perform on and off duty, how they use their training and their equipment and hold them accountable for every line written in departmental or agency policies while the criminal is given due process to the excess and basically a free ride out of jail because of social justice pressures.
Our peacekeepers are under attack by the lawless persons who roams our streets and attack innocent people. This type of scrutiny only results in a diminished capacity to work under and be more cautious in their official role as lawfully appointed agents of various areas of law enforcement. While the cops are being restrained, the protesters are given more freedoms. Their actions go beyond shouting and pushing cops, they are now burning and looting and destroying police cars and attacking police personnel deployed to keep law and order.
Warnings don’t work any longer. These lawless mobs are empowered by politicians who want them to riot, they are being paid to riot and cause a public disturbance. Through legitimate means, they have been warned to tone down the demonstrations but instead, they have failed to respect those rules and announced more demonstrations coming down the line while organized groups fund and flout them.
Protesters have ignored warnings and similar appeals from the government and are threatening to invoke more violence that can only mean more assertive responses from the police and government including martial law sanctions. What was once a task for cops to fight gangland crime has now turned into mob crimes organized by big business and politicians who have their own agendas in destroying the American way of life.
