Police officers across major US cities have abandoned metropolitan hubs in droves, electing to retire or find smaller departments.
The moves occured amid heightened public scrutiny of law enforcement and calls to defund the police. The workplace transition contributed to officer shortages that many city leaders believe will continue to worsen.
Austin and Los Angeles saw more than a 60 percent increase in the number of officers quitting the force. Voluntary retirements hit 131 percent in Cleveland and 70 percent in Pittsburgh. In San Jose, 1 in 9 officers left the police department. One in 12 officers left the Las Vegas police force.

And I see this continuing or getting worse.  Unless the Liberal Intelligentsia thinks they can collapse a city in order to bring troops and finally enforce their dream Socialist dictatorship utopia, there is no sense to allow 100% chaos descend over the population. Of course, if they have a firm grip in the electoral process, they won’t fear to be voted out, but otherwise people will eventually decided to get them out of office via the ballot box. Or is shit get really bad and they refuse to go, the bullet box will be the way they leave office.

And for some reason, my brain keeps bringing this image from a classic movie:

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. Not to worry, the local commissars will tax the kulaks to pay the gangs Peoples Peace Patrols to provide “security” for their respective neighborhoods.
