I think that maybe Detroit is a prime example of thisIf the police make a stand there will be public outcry. If they don't make a stand criminals will take over even more of the town. When the gangs are running the city public outcry will be dangerous. Every person has their own idea of what rock bottom is. In my opinion Chicago has been at rock bottom for a long time. Very few areas come back once they have let their neighborhood degrade to that point. Decent folks leave. Dirt bags eventually follow them. Problem starts all over. When your leadership is crooked it is hard to get the masses to toe the line. A fish rots from the head down.
I believe this and know that the Sheriff in our county does as well, hence our extremely high # of CCW permits.I' m flying my flag at half mast today to honor fallen LEOs and it is things like this that tend irk me, armed pubic could be a great asset to LEOs but do to the ones that have not learned that a gun ban is the biggest enemy to law enforcement and honest people.
