I was talking to The Misanthrope yesterday and I mentioned that in Great Britain we'll probably see some fighting in the streets if the bombings continue. I was actually talking about the skinheads there and other possible vigilante groups who will take the law into their own hands if they lose patience.
Then I woke up this morning to see that the London police had shot and killed a suspected suicide bomber. Good. If you're walking around in the middle of summer in a heavy coat (and I hate to say it, you fit the profile), acting suspicious, and not standing down when ordered by the police, then you risk being shot.
We live in a scary time, and it's getting scarier. If the police don't do it, then vigilantes eventually will. Then we will have chaos.
As my dad always told me -- if you hesitate, you lose.
