The way I see this going down eventually is some event. Engineered or accidental. One event will cause things to tip. To get out of control.
Large cities have large populations of . . . retards. Raging retards, and the only thing that keeps them from going completely berserk is that very thin, damn near transparent - veneer of law enforcement.
Upon the slightest pretense, riots can break out. But I fear this will not just be a local, isolated event. It will spread like wildfire.
No one will be able to control it. Because safety during transit will be out the window, transport will cease. Trucking will cease as the major cities are our hubs. Fuel, warehouses, communications, mail, highways, on and on.
Millions would be dead within a week. Consider diabetics. Millions of them, their medicine must be refrigerated, and most folks don't have a large long term supply. Millions would be dead within a month.
Now multiply this catastrophe a hundred times over.
No food shipments. No fuel. Electrical generation would quickly stop. And this would go on for months and months. Even when the destruction stops, predatory practices will continue.
No. The Police will be just like everyone else. Looking out for "me and mine." Military will be of similar mind. Looking out for family.
Oh, we'll get it back together, but not until there's been some serious fighting. And I fear it won't be anything like what we have now.

Now that is a nightmare scenario you just mentioned. Absolutely terrifying! How would any government quell that kind of mass hysteria?

Perhaps whatever their plan is, involves such a massive depopulating event that there will not be quite so many people to quell?
