Harbinger of the Vigilantes

Attacks on Asians Highlight New Racial Tensions – The New York Times.

The history of San Francisco is a standing testament to an important fact: when the police stop protecting the citizenry, the citizenry will take their protection into their own hands.

Nobody wants the Tongs back, least of all the families and the businesspeople of Chinatown. But if the police do not protect the people of the Asian community from predators like Eminike, Bolmer, and Blunt, something is going to fill the vacuum, and it won’t be Batman. It will be vigilantes.

The rallies must be wake-up for a slumbering city.
