“Law-abiding people,” Dubois had told us, “hardly dared go into a public park at night. To do so was to risk attack by wolf packs of children, armed with chains, knives, home-made guns, bludgeons … to be hurt at least, robbed most certainly, injured for life probably — or even killed. This went on for years, right up to the war between the Russo-Anglo-American Alliance and the Chinese Hegemony. Murder, drug addiction, larceny, assault, and vandalism were commonplace. Nor were parks the only places — these things happened also on the streets in daylight, on school grounds, even inside school buildings. But parks were so notoriously unsafe that honest people stayed clear of them after dark.” – from Starship Troopers, a description of American life just prior to the collapse of Western Democracy.
Robert Heinlein wrote these words in 1959.
“Diversity is our greatest strength.”
Coronavirus China Virus is going to test this theory, promulgated with the upmost zeal and enthusiasm by our elite in corporate America, the media, public sector, academia and the entertainment industry.
The first black female police commissioner of Philadelphia has instructed police to stop making certain arrests as the China Virus spreads through the city, a precursor to lawlessness, anarchy, and chaos.
The same mentality has spread to Cincinnati, a city where almost all violent crime – according to police arrest records – is committed by blacks. The black police chief has announced the city is suspending in-person responses from police to a shocking number of violent crimes against law-abiding citizens and property owners. [Cincinnati police temporarily suspending in-person response to certain 911 calls, WLWT.com, March 24, 2020]:
Cincinnati police are temporarily suspending in-person responses to certain 911 calls for service starting on Tuesday in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Isaac said he reviewed the department’s essentials functions and modified the response plan “to reduce unnecessary contact between officers and the public to reduce the spread of COVID-19.”
“I want to also assure everyone that if there’s an emergency situation, we will be there,” Isaac said.
During the coronavirus outbreak and beginning Tuesday morning, Cincinnati police officers will no longer respond in person to the following reports: criminal damaging, dog bites, lost property, lost or stolen license plates, phone harassment, property damage or found property.
Police will no longer respond to assault reports, unless a suspect is still present or the victim requires medical attention, breaking and entering reports unless a suspect is still present, menacing reports “unless suspect is expected or threatens to return or is part of the elements of domestic violence” or theft reports “where there is no possibility of immediate apprehension.”
Police are asking victims to report those crimes through the online or telephone reporting system.
Isaac said the announced calls for service do not require dispatch or a physical police response and will be referred for online reporting or telephone reporting when applicable.
Issac issued a statement along with the response plan:
“I want all of the residents and visitors to Cincinnati to understand that the Cincinnati Police Department is ready and able to respond to any emergency call from the public. Our recently implemented Differential Response Plan is intended to limit the exposure of our officers and the public to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and our desire is to continue to provide the highest level of police service, while maximizing our efficiency and effectiveness. To be clear, all of the calls for service listed in Differential Response Plan will be policed adequately and dealt with to remove/resolve the illegal acts. None of those illegal acts are condoned and all will be suppressed/resolved. In addition, assaults and all physical harm and immediate threats to property will be responded to in person when requested. Whenever someone is in physical danger the police will respond in person. All other listed calls for service will also be responded to, and sufficiently addressed, but may or may not involve in person contact with the complainant. For example, if a noise complaint is resolved, an officer will not be required to discuss with the original complainant in person, but someone will talk to the complainant by phone, and the noise complaint will be addressed. Please know that the men and women of the Cincinnati Police Department are here to serve you and we will be there for you when you need us. We are grateful for the support and encouragement our Department has received from citizens at this challenging time and we appreciate the cooperation and compliance we have received as well” said Chief Eliot K. Isaac.
Law and order.
A three word sentence easily describing the true health of a civilization or, if (the state) it refuses to implement these tried and true rules governing civic virtue, its complete and utter demise.
It’s hard to watch all this unfold, knowing there’s nothing we can do but be bystanders to the demise of a once great civilization.
Coronavirus China Virus spread across America, we are watching the state refuse to protect the innocent and law-abiding in some of our largest cities. What’s the point of paying taxes if in the face of a plague, lawlessness is allowed to spread?
Anarchy is set loose, if only momentarily, in the face of a plague brought to our shores from China and a callous disregard to our borders and the health of our nation by our elites (both Republican and Democrats).
Civilization is a fragile, precarious idea, the work of countless individuals over a long-period of time sacrificing their present for the idea their posterity will inherit a world greater than the one they knew. All of this is instantly upended by the folly of those dedicated to principles of wokeness.
