The quote of the day is from Sultan Knish, and he really brings the smart:
Neighborhood watches don’t have to turn violent, but they exist because
of the potential for violence in a society with plenty of law, but
little order. The struggling middle class looks to the cops only to
realize that the cops have their own job and it isn’t to protect them,
it’s to protect each other. And so they become cops. It’s vigilantism of
a sort and it’s a symptom of social collapse.
