Some of you undoubtedly heard of Maywood, California. It's the city that has decided to do away with everything. No employees. Period. Not even cops.
Oh, of course, the city council and other top management will keep their positions.
Read this article with a discerning eye.
Pay attention to the names of the people involved and take a look at the nice graphic, "Maywood At A Glance".
Now, read this piece, "Maywood to hire others to run the city"
Pay particular attention to the part about the police taking cars away from illegal aliens (read that as unlicensed and uninsured motorists). Did you notice the "Officials estimate about half the city's residents are illegal immigrants." part of the story?
Do you think that had anything to do with getting rid of the police?
The police in Maywood are not choir boys, and it is said that a third of the force are cast offs from other departments. They have had their own challenges to overcome, and were being looked after by the State Attorney General. You can read more about what's going on in this LA Times article.
Maywood is in no way to be confused with Mayberry, the home of Sheriff Andy and Opie. If you want to know why, just look at what happened at a church in Maywood.
You can take a look at this site and get an aerial view of the city, as well as getting a look at the housing and the prices you can expect to pay. For example, who can resist this lovely 716 square foot BANK OWNED home for a paltry $135,000? Check it out, it borders the parking lot for the Post Office. Nice and quiet. Or how about this gem complete with an iron fence and gate across your driveway? A SPACIOUS 638 square feet for a low, low, LOW price of $260,000!
I suspect the price is high because it is in a nice area of Maywood. Um, okay. I suppose it's all relative. Toilet opposed to cesspool.
So, how did Maywood get to be like this? Sanctuary City. Read all about it here.
See how Maywood stacks up with the Crime Statistics Scorecard and take a gander at the map that shows you the location of a huge number of child molesters in the area.
If you ever wondered what kind of people you will be facing when populations flee a city post collapse, here's a good snap shot for you.
