1 and 2. They need more police better trained how to descalate. So, yes, more, but specifically trained in youth, mental health and descalation issues. Better racism culling.
More than 100 people were shot in Chicago over the Father's Day weekend and at least 14 of them died
That's the kind of numbers you'd expect to see in a war zone.
The densely populated cities are where the worst of the violence, exacerbated by rising levels of stress, are going to be traditionally concentrated, at least at this phase of the end of the world as we know it.

Well, we have been watching the unfolding of the apocalypse before our eyes. I wonder how many will either only see the signs of the times in hindsight? Sometimes it's good to be getting old.

What if one's home or maybe the shop that is the source of their livelihood - say, a computer accessory factory - happens to be in that zone? Or other non-movable assets. It's kind of hard to just fold up a permanent structure, pack it in the trunk of the car, and haul it out of there to a safe location.
