California's Code of Silence

There is, of course, a vague code of silence about who is doing the stealing,
although occasionally the most flagrant offenders are caught either by sheriffs or on tape; or, in my typical case, run off only to return successfully at night. In the vast majority of cases, rural central California is being vandalized by gangs of young Mexican nationals or Mexican-Americans — in the latter case, a criminal subset of an otherwise largely successful and increasingly integrated and assimilated near majority of the state’s population. Everyone knows it; everyone keeps quiet about it. -- A Vandalized Valley - Victor Davis Hanson - National Review Online

Your Say

This raises another question no one will ask: What the hell do we have a second amendment for? While California and the rest of the country has given up on enforcing laws and jailing criminals, why then are there not more 'deterrent' means being used to fight crime among the farmers? Just the sharing of stories? Nothing more than futile prevention?
Where are all the goddammed men in this country?
Including YOU, Mr. Hansen?

As I said over on the original story, "This ends in guns."

VDH is a liberal at heart, and a self-described democrat. All his sentient writing comes of the liberal self-reporting his mugging. He has no idea of taking action to stop it.

The law abiding producers are being preyed upon by the criminals and by their government.

Consider two options for the po-po.

Option 1: investigate and prosecute thieving low-lifes; hard work, and high expense for dot-gov.

Option 2: hassle law abiding middle class sheep with radar traps and BS code enforcement; easy, low risk, and a source of revenue.

Vigiliantism occurs when the government fails to do its primary job. God forbid the sheep form a militia to protect themselves,

You know it will end in guns. It has to end in guns. Or else we meekly give up our guns and hope everyone just finally leaves us all alone. Not going to happen, I realize, but fuckitol anyway. Not ten years ago, when they locked the farmers out of their water source in Klamath Falls, Oregon, the men of the valley went over to the chain link fence protecting the switch and turned the water back on. The environmentalists who sought to save the salmon or something else (inevitably), managed to kill off the wild bird sanctuaries as well as the arable farmland.
The men TURNED THE WATER ON and dared anyone to turn it back off. Fucktitol.

It's hard to hide a killing and once the killing starts in earnest it will stop just as fast and just and earnestly because now the armed defender is bracing himself against the full force of government. We are being betrayed and though we will kill to defend ourselves and property we will be killing the wrong people.

Please note the Drugde headline this morning describing the armaments local cities and townships have acquired with Homeland funds. They are one step ahead of us again.

Buy a gun and swear to God you will never convict anyone killing a thug if you serve on a jury.

I for one will never convict a normal person for anything he does in battle with the barbarians, the facts be damned. We are the sovereign power in this country and it's now clear government is failing at many levels. If a man with a job kills a drug dealer, child molester, or gang member, I will always vote "not guilty" even if there is a video of the act and a Letter To The Editor in the local newspaper admitting to the act.

To quote the late 20th Century philosopher Patrick Swayze in the movie Road House, you be nice until it's time to not be nice. The gov't won't protect you. You must protect you.

Scott M, it is the largely unknown but historically established prerogative of juries to judge both the facts AND the law. A jury can decide that the law in the case before them is wrong. If this happens enough the law may well be changed. See the Fully Informed Jury Association. http://fija.org/
