How smart! Criminals are going to act right in front of armed men! And Detroit will be free of violence!
If you would read my previous reply to Entice you would see I said nothing about shooting innocent people nor specifically targeting the poor. Only kill those caught in the act of mugging, beating, etc... Such people are not innocents. Nor do they have to be poor.
Do you even use your brain, for once? Even if, your "peace keepers" managed to kill 1 or 2 attackers, do you realize the consequence? The whole US would explode in riots and destruction, because I cannot blame black people for playing the discrimination card.
What haven't history taught you? LA riot? Washington Heights riot? And of course Cincinnati riot!
Even the dumbest president of US would not do this idiotic thing.
If armed presence stops some otherwise violent people from "acting out" then all the better. And yes I expect there would be some riots but shoot the rioters too if they're behaving violently. They are the problem. They are the violent. If it brings them out of the woodwork so they can be shot down, all the better.
You're the one who brought race into this. I mentioned nothing of race. I don't care what race violent attackers are and they should be treated the same if they are white, black, hispanic, asian, whatever. Going after violent people is not racist if you're only going after them because they're violent and not because of their race.
You just think it's stupid because you disagree with it is all. Funny how people often equate stupid/not stupid with disagrees/agrees with them.
Also they wouldn't be the whole of the US but just the areas where the criminal element has basically already taken over with constant violence anyway. Where it's rampant. Just clean up those areas.
You're right that it likely would never happen though, but not because it's a stupid idea. Even if it were legal, it would not likely be a popular idea and that is why it wouldn't be done. But remember that popular doesn't equal smart nor does unpopular equal stupid.
It would be expensive but it could work.
