    Rising Police Aggression A Telling Indicator Of Our Societal Decline

    A historially common marker of failing civilizations
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, April 24, 2015, 4:22 PM


    It’s time to face some uncomfortable ideas about the state of civilization in the United States.  It is no longer the beacon of freedom illuminating a better way for the world, because it is becoming more and more uncivilized by the day.

    The recent spate of police brutality videos and the complete lack of a useful or even any reasonable response by the police unions has shaped this piece of writing, but it goes well beyond those incidents and extends into all corners of the lives of US citizens now.

    Protecting Yourself Against Crime and Violence

    by thc0655

    Note: This post deals with personal security, one of the most asked-for topics by this community. However, we realize it is a sensitive if not scary topic for some. The intent here is have an open and mature exploration of an important subject. Please respect the author’s efforts to do just that.
    My wife and I live in Philadelphia on the “green line” between mostly-prosperous Center City and mostly-wasteland North Philadelphia. People are very aware of crime around here, as you might imagine, and many people have taken numerous steps to avoid becoming victims. That being said, I am still surprised on a nearly daily basis how unprepared and unaware some people are. (I’m a Police Sergeant, so I see many people who have been caught off guard by criminals. And that’s a very important first tip: If the criminal cannot catch you off guard and unprepared, he’s most likely going to pick a different victim. But that doesn’t account for intoxicated/drugged criminals, very inexperienced criminals, and professional criminals.)
