Two Faces’s Thug: NO! Stay BACK! I got RIGHTS.
Batman: You’ve got rights. Lots of rights. Sometimes I count them just to make myself feel crazy! But right now you’ve got a piece of glass shoved into a major artery in your arm. Right now you’re bleeding to heath. Right now I’m the only one who can get you to a hospital in time.Batman The Dark Knight Issue 1 1986
George Washington McLintock: [through gritted teeth after knocking Jones down and taking the shotgun point at him and sticking it in Jones ribs] Now, we’ll all calm down!
Drago: Boss, he’s just a little excited.
George Washington McLintock: [Pushing Jones back with his shotgun]I know, I know. I’m gonna use good judgement. I haven’t lost my temper in forty years, but pilgrim you caused a lot of trouble this morning, might have got somebody killed… and somebody oughta belt you in the mouth. But I won’t, I won’t. [slight pause] The hell I won’t! [decks him!]
There is real fallacy among the left concerning the right’s willingness to fight back in a confrontation. concerning our willingness to fight back.
Because the right has a respect for law and is highly Christian many times when facing abuse from the left you run into the demands of Christianity to turn the other cheek or call a cop if they go over a line.
And for those who don’t have all that much respect for either there are always the consequences of same. Deck a leftist and you might face arrest and a court date.
But what happens in a world without police?
Now suddenly the danger of arrest is small or non-existent. If a person is being an ass, suddenly the restraint that kept you from decking him, or beating him, or if they pose the slightest danger, shooting him, is gone.
“But DaTechGuy”, you ask, “Can’t they still go to court and press charges?” Well forgetting that you will need a “police report” you also have the issue of how do you enforce any court decision. You do it with police and marshals. Andrew Jackson famously said when the Surpreme Court ruled in a case involving the Cherokee “John Marshall made his ruling, let him enforce it.”
No police or marshals to enforce a court judgement makes such a ruling a “suggestion” not an order. But it’s even worse than what it sounds like because these scenarios only involve regular people whose 1st instinct is not violence.
While despite the media template leftist extremism is far more rampant than on the right (mainly because the left embraces such folk unlike the right which rejects them) they do exist. How do you think they will react in a city where there are no police to stop them?
Does the left really want to enable and encourage the next Scott Roeder by conniving him that there will be no cops after him if he targets an abortionist or a “clinic”?
That’s what “no police” means. I think it’s a really stupid idea.
