Good news for law abiding citizens

Post by chownah » Wed Dec 20, 2017 2:03 am

Pretty soon the police will be able to call out a mob onto the street....if they are lucky maybe even a pro police riot:

What will happen when the russians hack this system?....or maybe the anarchists or the white nationalists? What if in some places the police ARE anarchists or white nationalists?

Presumably those law-abiding citizens in antifa will turn out to peacefully monitor the situation, and gently admonish the police if they get too heavy-handed.

Yeah, and the white nationalists could gently admonish the police as well.

You know, there are law abiding citizens who are antifa and also those who are white nationalists....they are just a very small minority of those groups.

The real concern is that the police will call out a selection of the citizenry to help them....this is a likely scenario for the forming of a police state.....imagine in the south of the usa a few decades ago....the police all too often called out a selection of the citizenry called the KKK to help them....alot of the police were KKK and even important figures in the KKKK. Now it seems that the ability to call out a mob is being institutionalized....and the scariest thing is that it will almost assuredly be subject to hacking....I know they will say that it will be hack proof but when has that claim ever been realized?
