“Enter the city at your own risk,” warned the police of Detroit, where “justifiable” homicide increased by 79% 2010-2011, while there are 1,000 fewer police officers than in 2002.
In Oakland CA, more than 11,000 homes, cars or businesses have been broken into so far this year – translating to about 33 burglaries a day.
Bellingham WA has 82,000 citizens; Santa Barbara CA has 90,000. Chicago has 100,000 GANG MEMBERS! And only 200 police officers in the Gang Enforcement Unit. 200 vs 100,000 – imagine.
And this is before SHTF. After SHTF, the 200 may dwindle down to zero, due to the worthlessness of their pay cheques and the need for them to defend their own families. If you’re still living there, good luck.
Crime is on the rise in major cities across the nation, while police forces are dwindling due to budgetary constraints. Come next year, Fiscal Cliff measures, meant to delay SHTF for as long as possible, may cut police budgets even further, though it would still be better than the big fat 0 otherwise.
