So--disenfranchisement leads logically to extra-legal systems bent on violence, eh? Think carefully about what you say and consider the long history of disenfranchisement of various groups and the means (legal and extra-legal) by which that has been carried out.<quoted text>
At the end of the Civil War, there was no "law and order", there was "martial law" because the South was under military occupation.
Like Iraq in 2003, it's no surprise that the disenfranchised (Confederate veterans after 1865, the old Iraqi Army in 2003) did what they did. If you remember the looting that went on in Iraq in 2003, the South at the end of the Civil War was like that.
Further, consider that for decades nigh onto a century following the Civil War, there was little to no justice through the legal system for black citizens. And the refusal of law enforcement and the justice system to pursue lynch mobs and the KKK stand as the prime example.
Now then, returning to Bob's obsession--where is the evidence of carpet-baggers (in Bob's claim primarily Jewish) travelling south to engage in theft and the like?
