The American people are pathetic; a quick coda.
With the defund-the-police rhetoric, you could now put up a sign on your neighbourhood. "No cops allowed." Hire a sheriff internally, who will eject any trespassing agents. Your neighbourhood, your rules. None of the government's business.
Normally this wouldn't work. There would be lawsuits, and resisting the lawsuits would bring down the reserves. Now the optics are wrong. If they take down your "no cops" sign, BLM gets caught in the crossfire. Oops. If they try to bring in the reserves, everyone will be watching. Which the reserves themselves are well aware of.
Americans won't do any such thing, of course. They will grovel, like good slaves.
