Cutting violent felons loose while simultaneously disarming law-abiding citizens sounds like an over-the-top BabylonBee parody. It’s actually a fairly standard leftist fantasy, and I can only imagine their frisson at seeing it come true. Leapfrog compassion* for the incarcerated dovetails nicely with the cops’ preference to bust up lemonade stands rather than confront dangerous criminals.
This phenomenon is well-understood as anarcho-tyranny, but we feel like a snappier moniker is needed. This is not quite a Darwin Award, since the murderous toll of such policies is never paid by those enacting them. So yeah, anarcho-tyranny. Oh, and pitchforks.
* As in: leaping right over the gated community walls.
