It's not working.
Libertarians believe the growth in the police state will lead to a retraction of our rights and liberties (rights, of course, don't exist), never realizing it's actually the growth of the black population - and the corresponding increase in criminality accompany this demographic shift- that requires a police state response if civilization is going to survive.
Well, feast your eyes on this. [In 'war room,' city police, feds work together to try to stop Baltimore violence, Baltimore Sun, August 12, 2015]:
At the head of Baltimore's "war room," Lt. Col. Sean Miller runs down a daily roll call of city police and federal agents, who give updates on phones being tapped, a cache of weapons stolen from a warehouse and a recent shooting on city streets.
The glass-door conference room on the third floor of police headquarters now serves as an all-inclusive intelligence and operations hub. Double-monitor computers sit on desks in the open-space office, with real-time CitiWatch camera footage displayed on flat-screen TVs and a city map of shootings and arrests.
Interim Police Commissioner Kevin Davis and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake created the war room last month as an "all-hands-on-deck" approach to address a spike in city homicides — the biggest on record — since the death of Freddie Gray, who suffered a severe spinal cord injury while in police custody.
The number of killings hit 200 this week, nearly four months earlier than last year.
The initiative brings together a cast of law enforcement that includes police as well as officials from the mayor's office, city and federal prosecutors, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and U.S. Marshals Service.
The Wednesday afternoon meeting was briefly interrupted when Davis entered the war room and the 30 officers and agents stood to recognize the city's top cop. He addressed them, as he does each time he visits. "We've had a lot of good days, and some not-so-good days," he said. "We just have to string together some good days, and a lot of our good days start right here."
Then Miller, a former undercover narcotics officer and the war room's commander, continued down his list, taking notes as each agency provided updates on how it's responding to the city's violent crime.
A DEA agent reported that phone taps are being executed in South Baltimore to gather information on drug trafficking and gang violence.
An officer relayed that an informant had passed along information about a possible retaliatory shooting planned on the west side, which has been particularly violent since Gray's death in April and subsequent unrest. Agents and detectives noted that 50 guns were stolen recently from the Northwest Baltimore warehouse of a former firearm licensee.
They said they're working on a detailed list of the missing weapons. One might have been found in a nearby home. "I want a list of every human being connected to that address," Miller responded.
The Secret Service reported that it's running financial information on family members of one particularly elusive East Baltimore suspect, wanted in at least three homicides. The war room combines intelligence gathering with operations and aims to that ensure that all the players are in sync, Miller said.
"Now it's a collaborative effort where everything is on the table, all the intelligence is shared across the board," he said.
"What used to take weeks or months now is taking days to formulate a plan, operationalize that plan, and put cops on the ground to attack it." Police have compiled a list of 238 "top trigger pullers," who police believe are responsible for most shootings in the city, Miller said.
About 25 to 30 "war board targets" are believed to be responsible for a string of retaliatory shootings between two to three groups on the city's east and west sides. Through efforts in the war room, about half have been arrested, Miller said, bringing that violence "to a screeching halt."Tell me again why there's any opposition to Planned Parenthood operating within the zip codes of once thriving [when they were majority white] now dying black cities like Baltimore?
A 24/7 "War Room" was not necessary when Baltimore boasted a majority white population (which is almost the entirety of the city's history); a Real Time Crime Center was not necessary in St. Louis until black crime drove whites to the suburbs and a black-friendly government was thus elected to permanently protect black dysfunction and gentrification never occurs to demand better, more accountable government...
Tell me again why Planned Parenthood is the villain in this story?
