If I was a Conspiracy Theorist: Police/Fire Vanishing do to Budget Cuts

With the growing number of conspiracy “theories” being proven as conspiracy facts, I wanted to take a look at something that has appeared to be very odd to me from a strategic point of view.

Countless communities coast to coast have been cutting their police/fire services. New York City, Trenton NJ, Bay Area California, Detroit, and a number of others have announced radical changes in their protective services. Some are cutting the forces to inadequate levels, some are limiting the types of crimes that they will respond to, and some communities are going as far as forsaking entire sections of their city to create “no man lands” inside their once covered boundaries.

Of course all these cuts have been blamed on the faulty economy and the budget problems it creates. Who can argue with that, right? High unemployment, a high jacked dollar, poor foreign and economic policy, all combine to paint the picture that it only makes sense that communities would have to cut their police and fire services.

However, if I were a conspiracy theorist, a few obvious problems can be found in the logic of these communities which would lead me to believe there is a more organized (and sinister) effort afoot.

1. Police and Fire are the last services that should be cut.

Grounds keeping, the parks department, sidewalk maintenance, bicycle recovery, and dozens of others departments that cities offer their citizens would all have to be cut BEFORE it would even begin to make sense to start looking at cutting the most important services a city is set up to provide; police and fire. Is that what we see? NO

2. Bad economy = rising crime

The fact that crime increases in poor economic and politically uncertain times would suggest that not only would police and fire NOT be cut in times like these, but the demand for their services would actually increase.

3. Volunteer and reserve forces

This, to me, is one of the biggest red flags. The need for a community to maintain its fire/police services are so important that there are actually systems in place to allow a community to get these services free of labor costs! Budget concerns offer no valid excuse for cutting police and fire protection when you take in to account that all of these communities have the ability to implement volunteer firefighters and reserve police officers in order to supplement their departments. But, is this what we are seeing in these communities? NO. Instead they are forfeiting the protection needed by their citizens all together.

4. A growing awareness of role and honor

The men/women of honor and courage who serve in the police/fire sectors of our communities are starting to wake up to the fact that they have been abused and taken advantage of. They are realizing that their loyalty have been bought away from the people and constitution they have been sworn to protect and instead they are being increasingly used to serve non-constitutional roles and actions which violate common decency. There are thousands in these roles who no longer want to be federally “tough” and morally “weak.” This is creating a great divide between those who have a soul, wishing to perform their duties in an honorable manner and those who have let the illusion of power rob them of true relevance. Those looking to corrupt are facing a growing number of truly strong men and women who know illegal is illegal regardless of who calls it “legal.”

So what does this all add up to? A possible conspiracy…if I was a conspiracy theorist.

Americans would never settle for a forced martial law or federalized police/fire force which would supersede their local and state authority. If…IF there were a conspiracy to implement a national “martial law” it would be much easier to do so by eliminating local police and fire resources, allowing fire and crime to rise unanswered, and let the people of this great nation actuallybeg for the federal government to implement a national “force.” Common mafia tactic; create crime in a neighborhood and then the people will beg (or pay) you to stop the crime.

Now, if we look at the fact that local sheriffs have been the target of a massive power stripping effort, supplemented with the false allure of “federal power.” If we look at the fact that the current administration has implemented a federal civilian defense force, which the President stated he wanted to make as equally armed and funded as the military. If we look at the fact that the past few administrations have been giving up the constitution in exchange for global governance and social justice, then we can reasonably conclude that a conspiracy to implement a federal system to provide local fire/police protection is not only a viable alternative to the rising problem, but also a vehicle to be used to implement a tyranny that the people would normally never stand for.

Think about it, you would never choose the poisoned Kool-Aid if you were forced to have it, but dying of thirst you will beg for the poison and take the risk.

Hmmm…If I were a conspiracy theorist.
