More on the nature of urban riots.

Had the British rioters attacked the homes of the members of Parliament, water cannon or tear gas or live ammunition would have been used by now. But only the mere proles are being affected, so the government forces do little to stop the violent thugs and actually hinder the population’s efforts of self-defense. Should even one rioter be shot by the defenders of lives or property, I am certain the official outcry would be deafening and the efforts to find the culprit considerable. The Good Shepherd doesn’t suffer his flock to gain independence.

    The elite’s idea is that “no property is worth a human life.” Unless, of course, it’s theirs. They don’t get the idea that to people who have to work for it, property is life.

      More importantly, manifested ill intent isn’t specifically “to loot”, it usually includes one or more of “intimidate, loot, burn, maim, rape, murder” — and all of those are felonies rating lethal force. To stand in front of a mob and simply count on their moderation in the brigandage and mayhem is beyond unwise.

      The solution to drastic imbalance of numbers between productive humans and violent savages has been known since the 1860s, the Gatling gun. The Nordenfelt, the Maxim, and all the other more modern varieties of the mechanized mob-stoppers would do for the job, and even handheld arms would be sufficient. A mere dozen of resolute 1770s infantrymen with Brown Bess muskets and bayonets could, with some manual labor, turn a mob of hundreds to flight. The problem the English now have is that the police is tacitly supporting the mob and have been breaking up local patrols and self-defense groups.

    Won’t be long before the unions start rioting here in the US when their “benefits” get cut off nationally. Wisconsin was just an early indicator of these type of protests, but amazingly, also an indicator of the good results once the stranglehold of the union is broken.
