You get lawlessness and the breakdown of order. And no, this isn’t about California. Winnipegger turns to confrontation as police response times grow for property crimes.
About a Canadian who found a man in his backyard. The intruder produced a knife and lunged. In Texas, or Florida, or a dozen other states, that guy would be dead. But Canada is to “civilized” (read that as “domesticated”) to allow its citizens (subjects?) to be armed in their own defense.
The reason that the guy was tired of waiting on police?
Winnipeg police have commented numerous times over the past several months that their resources are being stretched thin.
They are dealing with “The increasing number of bizarre and dangerous incidents due to people believed high on meth.” 911 response time to a property crime is now measured in days. Which means, of course, that property crime is also on the rise.
Now Winnipeg has long way to go before it becomes Baltimore, New Orleans or Chicago, but the trends are clearly going in the wrong direction.
