Okay /k/ here's the situation:
>due to financial reasons, the demolition of the Kowloon Walled City was put off until present day
>the population remained the same since the early 90s at about 33,000 residents
>while most of the population was willing to leave, several hundred have decided to violently resist
>they are armed with a mix of handguns, submachine guns, rifles, and shotguns some acquired off the black market and others made in machine shops on site along with plenty of explosives that they've manufactured on site
>they've taken ~100 hostages, possibly more
>in preparation they set up a radio repeater network so they can easily communicate and also have wired communication as a backup, fortified parts of the Walled City, and set up booby traps
Some more information on the area:
>networks of staircases and passageways allow one to travel throughout the city without going down to the ground level
>alleyways for travel on the lower levels tend to be 3.3-6.6 feet wide
>most of the apartments are 250 square feet
>expect cramped conditions in general
>area of the Walled City is 6.5 acres or .01 square miles
>the buildings are 10-14 stories tall
How could such a situation be dealt with?
Video going through parts of the city:
>pay everybody to leave
>claim now-empty Kowloon and christen it the /k/astle
It's as easy as that.

>it catches fire
>firefighters won't go near it due to chance of getting shot
>environmental disaster ensues as it burns to the ground and the surrounding area possibly catches fire
You bomb the shit out of it, nothing of value would be lost.
This but on a significantly smaller scale.
Assuming I'm the British, I just pay the gang leaders that run the place to clear everyone out.
Sure, it's expensive, but it's cheaper and less embarrassing than the military solution, and the eternal Anglo always has cash for this sort of thing.
Imagine if firefighters weren't able to get near the world trade center do their jobs on 9/11 due to the possibility of being shot at by people inside the world trade center.
This, if anybody is used to working in counter gurella stuff in very close slum and urban environments it's BOPE, even around civilians cause favelas (though they'll probably not give a shit). It'd still be risky but you'd get results.
That is, unless the rebellious population has an angry gringo in his midlife crisis on their side in which case just let it sort itself out.
"Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, I realized not only had yet another woman I was trying to protect, along with my sobriety, had just died in a helicopter crash into a concrete mess filled with angry street sides soup sellers who just got the eviction notice from the Fort Knox of Asian poverty. Hopefully if I grin hard enough, I can slip past most of the rabble by disguising myself as one of the local dumplings,looks like all those years of off tone wincing would finally pay off"

Yes,exactly like that. But instead of leaf, we have pathogens. Most notably some kind of bird flu, won't kill everyone, but will force us to cut off water and make any water available in the city undrinkable. Infection spreads to any source of livestock may they have and kills it, starving out the city. It's so simple.
We need to spam this thread with photos and artists impressions from google. This place is JUST LIKE MY ANUMES!
>Actually, it's just like blade runner/Judge Dredd
Can you imagine living in a 1,000,000 resident version of this place? What would you stereotypical /a/k/ position be there?
>I'd go gun for hire/enforcement for criminal organization.
not is a painting of kowloon walled city given longer to grow. i assume the dome is solar panels.
you know what would be fucking crazy is landing MH-6 helicopters in small courtyards and on rooftops inside the hive city.
you could even "hire" them by paying them a shitload to go AWOL to slot some chinks. with the ruble going to shit they might just stay afterwards.
it will happen one day. the problem is that china has tons of las vegas style huge cities with no one living in them and they are trying to get the people in the country side to move there. so i doubt there will be another kowloon in china any time soon.
That would actually be a pretty impressive accomplishment since OP specified there would be less than 1,000 people in there. 32,000 of those body bags aren't going to be used at all and it's just a ruse to line the pockets of some contractor that makes body bags.
>Kowloon walled city, china
censor media, burn it down around them. The West finds out the tragic fire wasn't a tragic fire 30 years later when no one will care beyond it's wikipedia entry.
It won't happen for a long, long time but can you imagine a city with the square milage of NYC built up like Kowloon?
Fucking insane, what kind of criminal elements would spring up? How would the populace cope? Would they import weapons or manufacture on site?
imported, hidden, forgotten in some built over room
government would crack down on weapons coming in and so improvised weapons would begin to crop up, probably a boom of weapons followed by a trickle after the manufacturer got killed by some gang
There is a Japanese arcade modeled after Kowloon.
>tfw I'm listening to cyberpunk music rn
why is it that the dystopia we live in can't be the cool kind of dystopia? I want Bladerunner, not decaying 1970's infrastructure.
And the grass is always greener man, if we were raised in bladerunner cities we would likely be terrible shots with firearms and tools to our corporate overlords with no self preservation skills.
>exploring as a kid
>find a build over room full of crates with russian writing all over them
>pry open crates
>its AKs, grenades, ammo cans, rpgs ect.
>grow up in the criminal underworld of you area of future kowloon
>forming gang with your childhood friends
>you remember the secret room full of guns
yeah, low grade, the criminal element grows and suddenly a few barrels of fertilizer find their way in, residents are getting rude awakening when the occasional pvc pipe bomb kills a drug dealer or rival from the other side of the city
fires burn out a section of building and some poor bastards have to go in and repair it, empty out the spots only to have people ready to move in, wealthier gangs getting first pick
tell them they have till exactly 7am Saturday morning to release the hostages and exit the area
if they do, good
if not, at 7:00:01 open up with a dozen or so of these and keep firing until the buildings are gone or they decide to surrender, whichever comes first
>implying i give any fucks about chinks, living or dead
>Implying you're able to survive fighting a dual wielding, tumbling, gun fuing, slow-moing, dove scattering populace
We've got a Jerry Miculek.
"Reactive targets are worth 2x points, Jerry."
>City cleared in 18.64 seconds
Dig fire lanes all around the thing and let it burn.
Oh, and shoot their dogs, too.
>We've got something special for you today
>TWO MP38's, duel wield, few hundred targets.
>Now these targets are gonna be moving, and it's a pretty technical corse of fire, but let's just see how we do here.
>*Muffled gunfire and hooooooyeah*
>MFW imagining /k/ as the arms factory and most heavily armed gang in mega city 11
Lets look at those splits
Uh-oh, looks like we missed and got a C zone hit. My favorite part about this course of fire is it allows makeup shots, really allows you to focus on the speed aspects of the run.
Now, lets see here, one shot, A zone, from start position, in hmmlet'sseehere.... ah, .359 seconds.
