Police Force Goes on Strike, Residents Pleased

What would happen if the police went on strike?  Would all of your once friendly neighbors become thieves and murderers? 

Or would the peaceful majority quickly begin to self organize to protect one another from the few in their communities who actually are thieves and murderers?

Despite conventional wisdom societies don't actually descend into complete chaos. After all public police forces were not imposed on the populace until the middle of the nineteenth century in the United States and Great Britain.

According to a recent report police in Acapulco, Mexico went on strike and the people of the city, for the most part are quite pleased.  It turns out that without the transit police there is less traffic, and without the municipal police there has been no noticeable increase in crime.
