Inner city civil wars. The pawns versus the knights. There may be more pawns but the knights have armor. Up on their high horses the knights have deep pockets for holding gold. Clasps, clips, rings, necklaces and other bling lifted from the fallen? No, grants, funding programs for military equipment, and “forfeitures” of the “ill gotten gains of crime”. Along with hefty merit pay and other employee union mandated benefits packages too numerous to have complete funding from current fiscal flows. Like most civil wars the partisans hold the night with the forces of control taking back the burning streets at dawn as the natives and inter city mercs regroup to ready another night of “festivities”. The knights rule the days. Urban renewal American style. One city at a time please.
