Next Friday is Inauguration Day in D.C. and we shall see if law enforcement, the National Guard and our military have found their cojones to sufficiently disrupt those who intentionally plan to turn the peaceful transfer of power into any chaos they can create. These people have bared their plans to the public and media at large, making no bones about their objectives and means to those ends.
In watching most of these "protests", I am always struck by the lack of force demonstrated by the police and other protectors of the public. Rare is the wielded billy club. Occasional is a water cannon and rare is the cavalry. Worse, to me, is that the handful who are actually arrested usually spend the night in the tank with their fellow rioters and are then sent home without arraignment or prosecution. Such weakness on the part of the courts and politicians begets more riots and criminal conduct along with less respect for the law and law officers.
What is needed is for the law and order side to tener cojones and get realistic about their work. Split skulls, stiff fines and long sentences will quell these riots. The progs will scream "Fascist!" but that is what progs and professors always do. Hurl insults, rocks, disrupt other people's rights but then whine about their rights being trampled when law and order are imposed on them. They've gotten away with it for decades as the MSM has been on their side. Now, with the MSM marginalized by the Trump, it's possible for the tide to change.
Methinks DC's version of the National Guard is under the direct supervision of the President. The military surely is. What Trump could do is issue a set of rules of engagement effective immediately following his swearing which rules order the troops to simply use maximum force and arrest to maintain order without exception. Fracture a few skulls and silence will reign.
Let's see law and order from minutes one. You will soon see these escapades simmer down all over the country as the snowflakes retreat to their safer spaces on that day and in those to come. You simply have to grow a pair.
