#1 This is like ripping off a bandage. It will probably have to happen in more than one city and it will be painful and ugly. But some people only learn the hard way.

#4 I live in the land of HOAs. It's such a racket there's a continuous push from a certain quarter to establish one in my suburban neighborhood. It's such a racket the local paper has a column devoted to questions about HOA abuses. It's such a racket....

#5 Community-led system

Like the no-go places in Europe?

#6 Blacks think they are unwelcome now? Wait until community-led justice falls upon them.

#9 When I lived in Savannah we had a separate fire fee assessment, if you didn’t pay it, the fire dept would come out and protect the neighboring houses that had paid the fee and watch yours burn to the ground, then they’d send a bill charging for the response

#11 Per the city council prez, fearing crime is now a privilege. Remember this as you're being sodomized.

#12 County Sheriff has said "no appetite" to assist Mppls if they go this route.

Why would he?

#13 In other words, the Sheriff and his deputies are going to say, "Call BLM for justice."

I fear that Pournelles future vision may come to pass, with Taxpayers, who get police protection and services vs 'Citizens' who get government cheese and drugs to keep them docile. Riots get met with a full, unrestrained military response.

#15 Which means they will cede control of the city to the gangs. See: South side of Chicago.

Can the UN come in if the federal government, ie President Trump, does not give pernission?

#23 Well, they can try. If they do, maybe Trump will declare a no bag limit on Blue Helmets.
