Weaponized inaction.

[NY mayor Dave] Dinkins was accused of only tacitly encouraging the rioters [in the 1991 Crown Heights crimefest]; today’s mayors do so explicitly. The “policy of restraint” regarding police protection cited by the [Rosenbaum] district court has been replaced by a policy of deliberate, calculated withholding of protection.[1]

It is bizarre to live in times when governments have unmistakably abandoned their responsibility to maintain order and obtusely chosen to embrace a notion of constitutional "peaceful assembly" that includes looting, arson, assault on other citizens and police, and murder. There is nothing about "peaceful assemblies" that exempts them from constitutional municipal restrictions on the time, place, and manner of assembly. However, municipal authorities have adopted a position of abject, cringing duplicitous "helplessness" at best and gleeful encouragement at worst. "What can we do?" Or, so help me, "Summer of love."

Either way it's a major contribution to a victory for the dregs of society . . . located at the bottom and the top of society. The agreeable, productive, law-abiding middle can just suck it up.

We'll see if this generates a blip on the old radar screen at TEOTWAWKI aitch cue. Or in what might laughingly be referred to as the "election results."
