Also we would have to trust them since once things got changed we wouldn't know any different.
Thankyou, I appreciate your responses. A corporation of time police is an excellent idea. How would it be modelled and or funded?
Coincidentally...where would one report to?
"911 what are you reporting?"

Cyberian, thanks for the feedback.
Boring and simple is good. :-)
Just cap his ..., part of me really likes that idea!
Current genetics would allow for that. Gather evidence, travel to the past, gently take out the family--
I really want it to be that simple.
Make it simple again, please
Oh my gosh! it just dawned on me...
What if the head operative of the organization of the time police IS the terrorist mole? Who planted the evidence implicating another. Over and over
again. It looks like he's doing a stellar job. Lots of hits and ended bloodlines. Hundreds of twarted attacks. So many that he can't quite get them
all and will need to bring in *friends* of the highest caliber (because he says so).
Who would know-to cap him/her? Who would know the difference before it's too late. Calling all the shots. Controlling all the information.
This thread might greatly isolate the glitches of a supposed, hypothetical time police corporation enforcement system in advance of a worst case
So just how much damage can a team of BAD people with time machines, do? Would we even know it?
Osama with a time machine. What would he think to do?
Hitler with a time machine. What would he think to do?
CIA double agent with a time machine, funnelling back trade secrets.
I'm going to make a list of who I want on my time police.
