Now that the Baltimore PD is about to surrender to the black undertow, and as other LEAs have done and will continue to do the same, the black undertow is going to go absolutely wild. We know from the Kansas City experiment that law enforcement presence or non-presence has no effect on violent crime rates, and that the Ferguson Effect is purely a matter of an enraged and amped up black undertow. However, if the know the cops are surrendering, rather than them surrendering in secret, that will only serve to throw another lit match into the gasoline pool.
Because power abhors a vacuum, some kind of power is eventually going to fill the vacuum that official law enforcement leaves behind. What will it be? We better hope that it’s a nationalist monarchy, and that’s the best case scenario. At worst, it could be a hodgepodge of fluid non-state armed forces, ranging anywhere from African warlords in black urban areas, (and like I have always said, black gangs are the precursors to African continental style warlord style militia style groups that have not yet become that because the official authorities have held them in check, though with the official authorities gone, that check will no longer be in place), to corporate funded, run and trained security forces, to informal neighborhood cooperative patrols, whose presence and potency are always changing, and which have constantly shifting alliances and rivalries with each other.
The way I’m describing the nightmare scenario, it could be akin to a complex cultural transformation very similar to the slow dilution of the Western Roman Empire in the fifth and sixth centuries.
Or, maybe I’m just overthinking things. As if my own self-critical part of my brain is saying to me: “You got all that from one DOJ report about one police department in one big city, huh?”
