Citizens Are Learning to Protect Themselves


In Detroit, a group calling itself the Detroit 300 is patrolling the streets. These people are so sick of the rampant crime in their neighborhood (including the robbery and rape of a 90 year old woman) that they've dispensed with the "no snitching" code that is common in underclass black communities and are helping police track down suspects. As local governments grow ever more feeble in the collapsing economy, and as the police fade away, I expect groups like this to evolve into outright vigilante squads.
