We now get to the famous fresco of the amphitheater riot (59 CE) from with the Nucerians. Lots of great commentary on this from Prof. Amy Russell. See her book for more: Great points about laws disbanding collegia as an anti-violence tactic.

Note there was actually policing of cities in antiquity—just not to the level there is today. My academic brother, Prof. Chris Fuhrmann, actually wrote a great book on this.
