Media, police and politicians disparage communities protecting themselves as “vigilantism”wtf2.gif

http://www.infowars.com/amazon-disarms-b...nse-items/

Quote:Following calls by politicians, media and the police for Brits not to buy baseball bats and engage in what was disparagingly termed “vigilantism,” Amazon UK has followed suit by banning self-defense items from its online store, after sales of makeshift weapons soared through the roof as a result of riots plaguing the country.

In the immediate aftermath of widespread looting and rioting which was directed primarily against private homes and local family businesses, Brits left defenseless by a blanket gun ban that makes it virtually impossible to own a private firearm rushed to Amazon to purchase whatever could be used as a weapon to protect their families and property from attack....

Quote:Following suit, Amazon UK today banned the sale of perfectly legal items, including self-defense sprays and Kubotans, short lengths of plastic or steel.

“Amazon has removed several police-style telescopic truncheons from sale on its site as soaring sales of truncheons, baseball bats and other items that could be used as weapons sparked fears of vigilantism in the wake of widespread rioting,” reports the Guardian.

Quote:However, the media quickly disparaged people getting together with their neighbors to protect their communities as “vigilantism”. The Metropolitan Police, whose order to its officers to stand down on the first three nights of rioting directly led to the escalation of the chaos, also warned residents not to patrol their communities....

From a sociological POV what happened and its response from citizens is a natural reaction and the state is trying to stop that. Because if people see that they can police themselves in their own communities, then why should they let the corrupt police, state brutality, 'control' the streets. The State does not want people to act or think for themselves even in the capacity of their own life.
You can be sure if the street riots occurred where wealthy land owner class lives, the state would have crushed the riots without mercy on day one.

The problem is that, man being man, without police types you eventually fall into a state of anarchy. Look at our border with Mexico. The Cartels figured out exactly you are saying. Now look at the state of the Cities down there. It's Colombia all over again. It will start with mobs of angry, well armed people and witch hunts. It has happened repeatedly throughout history. It would be great if we could control ourselves. We can't. As civilized as we are, we are still very primitive. Just look at all the hate between the extreme left and right. You know that it would get physical. Not that I think that would necessarily be a bad thing...

I really believe that the only problem with our country is that it is controlled by the vocal extremist idiots. The other 80% of the moderate centrists (Read Libertarians...) need to assume control. However, in the end we need professionals (police) to do their jobs. Investigate crimes and pursue real criminals. We also need to get rid of every politician and start over with intelligent, regular people. Then we can go to work on street gangs. Just clean house. We don't have to ğkking live like this.



Oh, my god. There goes another red dot on the mailbox.

I think that by this point they have made their way up the driveway with the red dots. They made a trail directly to the house.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

I'm sorry but that is not true, throughout human history, people lived without a police force. Communities had their own rules and if they were violated, the community itself mete out the punishment. We are brutalized from birth to death by the state to believe that without its velvet gloved fist, there would be anarchy. That is a lie. Again, it comes down to fear. "Father State protect me."
