“Wanted” Signs Emerge in Oakland as Residents Police Themselves

So this is what is happening in Oakland, one of the many forgotten about, left-behind corners of America.  From CBS:

OAKLAND (KPIX 5) – Oakland’s crime problems have gotten so bad that some people aren’t even bothering to call the cops anymore; instead, they’re trying to solve and prevent crimes themselves.

In a neighborhood that has started to feel like the wild west, people have even started posting “wanted” signs.

Personally, I think this is the only “Wanted” sign that people should be putting up all over America.

You have to walk around in your house with a gun to feel safe here,” said Alaska Tarvins of the Arcadia Park Board of Directors.

Over the weekend, one home was burglarized twice in a 24 hour period, once while a resident’s nephew was inside.

Now, Arcadia park neighbors are taking the detective work into their own hands.

KPIX 5 found a woman who identified herself as L.E. patrolling her neighborhood by car. She said she recently chased down a couple of robbers herself.

While the macro problems that have led to this are deplorable, there is one silver lining.  The crime crisis is forcing neighbors to get to know each other and come to solutions on their own within their community.  Since we all know by now the bureaucracy will not be coming to the rescue, the sooner we figure out solutions on our own the better.

Welcome to the recovery!

  2. Attaboy!! Maybe this clueless society is getting it. If this post pisses you off- you are my target audience. Bringing the hate since 2008. http://thecivillibertarian.blogspot.com/2013/03/the-facebook-society.html

  3. Bernanke should just come out and say it, I can hear him almost saying it: “Buy stocks. It’s you’re only hope in partaking in the recovery. We’ve cornered every other market to make sure you don’t make a dime (with gold tunnels and all) except in stocks. Only got a few bucks? So what? Put it in the market and experience that wealth effect–booh yea!.”

    Greenspan and Bernanke are insane. Not only are they doing the same crap expecting a different result, they are doing even more of the same crap that gotten us where we are today!

    I think the gold silver suppression will last possibly another year. Think about how digusted folks are with two years of inflation losses. Just wait unitl we hit three years!

    Bill Gross was right, “the countdown begins when stocks are no longer attractive.” Meanwhile, we’re going to see a lot more of the Oakland crime spree and anger spread.

    Almost everyone I know is just trying to keep the hamster wheel moving.
