Well, it is time for the very rich to begin to start worrying about having a stronger police force.
Probably will have to have a privately paid force in the more affluent areas.
Times are rough for most people who are in the middle and lower classes....even the very rich........I would not recommend stocking up on weapons (pocket Derringers for the ladies and Lugers for the older guys)......None of you who have costly jewelry are not silly enough to have expensive items in a house safe....NOT MEN(g) but almost everyone keeps cash and that is appealing to home robberies.
It is not a pleasant experience and a police official seems to think home crimes are going to increase. PREPARE.
