Sack, you have two opinions... How many do you need before you give us yours? I'm on tenterhooks!

Lizard, are there trans-sexual Vulcans?

Oops, Sorry, wrong thread. Embarrassed

Well, Jeff.

As you know, I have suggested funding police in a very similar way to that comedy sketch's premise.

Assuming you only watched about five seconds of it before blurt-posting your revelation that it was a comedy skit, I'll go over that premise. 

In my idea of police funding, citizens pay for police services by either paying yearly or monthly dues or paying fees at the time that they need services.  Emergency services can be billed later similarly to the way ambulance services are billed.

It was the same in the skit, except people "owned shares" instead of paying dues.  Allowing for the language differences, I think it would be more or less the same.

The citizen who reported his car stolen seemed surprised and annoyed since he had been abroad and didn't know about the new funding method.  He wanted his car found; he didn't want to have to choose the level of service he wanted to pay for. 

Like most Euro-style socialists, he expected the service to be paid for by others since "Lulzies Majorities!"

I stil don't think it will work and that it will have many bad unintended consequences.

Unlike the current system which works so well and never has any unintended consequences?

As I said previously, private police will work worse and have more bad consequences.

The comedy guys didn't convince me.

Are you happy with private prisons?

There are no private prisons in the U.S.  That would be kidnapping and false imprisonment. 

There are only cronies of bureaucrats and elected politicians given tax dollars to run government controlled prisons.
