And I'm not talking about national martial law. I'm talking about one city and a centralized square like we've seen in the Ukraine or Cairo.
Like Chicago during the convention riots? They were using full auto 50s to get people out of abandoned buildings. The major difference was most people thought the govt was right. Today i don't think there is a bet on government. Once government is seen as the enemy the dynamic changes dramatically We are creeping close to the edge. And Obamas policy of divide people and pit one group against another could have very serious consequences
