In southeastern Brazil, a real-life version of the movie The Purge is going on.
Police officers in the state of Espirito Santo went on strike Friday. Their families have barricaded the exits of eleven law enforcement barracks, preventing any officers from performing their jobs.
And the state has descended into a kind of anarchy usually reserved for post-apocalyptic movies.
The Brazilian website Globo.com reported on the dire situation.
Murders have increased by a thousand percent, with 62 people being killed over the course of three days. While that sounds like a normal weekend in Chicago here, the state only had four murders in the entire month of January. There are so many dead that they’ve exceeded the capacity of the morgue to hold them all, and corpses are lying on the ground.
Stores have been vandalized and looted, some of them utterly destroyed. Many merchants have boarded up their windows and will remain closed for the duration of the crisis.
Banks, schools, parks, public hospitals, and public transit have all closed.
Gangs have taken over the cities, and the military has been dispatched to regain order.
This has been pretty much blacked out by the media but I was able to find one video showing what it really looks like down there.
Without Rule of Law
This is a classic example of what can happen when society is Without Rule of Law (WROL), a common term that preppers use to describe a complete breakdown of society and the rules that maintain order. (Here is the best book you can buy for surviving this type of scenario.)
Now, look at the situation here in American cities right now. Thankfully, we haven’t devolved to this point yet, but the protests about the Trump administration just keep escalating.
