American Mercenary: Expect Local Law Enforcement Death Squads when SHTF
Why I'm not a fortune teller, my crystal ball is too fuzzy. One of the things I like to do is try to "cause/effect" map potential upcoming events. Ryan's latest prognosis that death squads will likely form by LEO as a response to assassination of government officials by criminal groups gives me a starting point to go from.
Going on a "cause/effect" analysis on Ryan's work brought me to this:
Cause 1: Criminal organizations assassinate government personnel. Effect 1: LEO organizations go "tit for tat" and start killing Criminals. (note 1) Cause 2 2: LEO organizations go "tit for tat" and kill Criminals. (note 2) Effect 2: Criminal organizations form organized kill squads. Cause 3: Criminal organizations form organized kill squads. Effect 3: Escalation of conflict in terms of numbers killed and geographic area. (note 4) Cause 4: Escalation of conflict in terms of numbers killed and geographic area. Effect 4: Civilian population repressed as part of "security measures." (note 3)
