The way I look at it, there are just as many that will be upset about that premise as there will be those that it makes conditioned. Is it
conditioning, or a warning? I do not claim to know, but it is disturbing either way.

I know i'm playing the devil's advocate here but what's wrong with a well equipped police force? Isn't this what the real Chicago Police with all the
gang violence so desperatly needs? Yes i know everything could be abused against civillians but if it helps to prevent more crimes and manages to
actually save more lifes isn't it kinda worth it? Since my own encounters with violent criminals i've got zero tolerance for them.
Humm, weird. I wonder what APB stands for. There is actually a game which started with the name All Points Bulletin (APB), was later renamed "APB
Reloaded" after "gamersfirst" bought it, and which is about a politician who because of the rise in violence in the streets, her father who was mayor
got murdered by criminals, decides to implement "a city security act" in which the police is effectively made into a private police force. Police
officers are called "enforcers" and anyone willing to become "an enforcer" to fight criminals is allowed to do so with no rules restraining
"enforcers" since criminals don't abide by any rules.
Here is the original intro from youtube.
When "GamersFirst" bought the game and remade it as APB Reloaded they tried to attract more players by making a live action trailer.
Note how the "live trailer" is about criminals winning" sensationalizing the lives of criminals. It's very violent, and gory.
Essentially players can be either enforcers, or criminals, and go on missions in which player enforcers fight against player criminals to complete
The premise of that show sounds very similar to the premise of the game.

I do wonder if APB, first the game, and now a show, is about conditioning people to accept such a "private police force". BTW, in the game enforcers
are better rewarded for using "less than lethal weapons". Actually, it might even be a good idea to see who was behind this idea. In an age of
technology and computers the internet has been used to condition people. As another example, there is a game which the U.S. Army uses which also
seems like a conditioning tool.
