It is a bit misleading since they are replacing it with county sheriffs. Having said that I am all for disbanding police forces and moving to private
protection. Police have just become highway men and collections agents for government extortion rackets.
I do not believe private firms should engage in any aspect of law enforcement. I believe the only legitimate reason for government to exist is to
enforce the law. In this country, we have the concept of self-government. If I govern myself accordingly, then government has no reason to interfere.
Private firms could easily do so without hesitation.

I think the spending on activities other than law enforcement has painted us into a corner. We need to stop spending money on fruitless issues (war on
drugs, foreing wars, etc.) and simply focus on maintaining lawful conduct within our own society.
You have got it all wrong private firms would be for protection only they would not be enforcing laws except t protect who hired them from criminals.
They would not be cruising the streets extorting people for so called victimless crimes. You do not need to be a police officer to enforce "real" laws
if someone is harming you or others.
Technically police forces are private corporate enterprises anyways but people think they have more power then they really do according to actual law
so they get away with all kinds of BS. If people knew security was private they would not be able to over step their bounds as easy as they would be
limited in scope and everyone knows it as opposed to police who we tolerate all ther BS because of their supposed god like powers in the minds of the
Anyone can bring a claim against anyone else of they were harmed in any way. However no harm no crime. That is the way this country was built and we
need to get back to that! Private security would be a big step in that direction.
People will say what about those ho can't afford it. It would be really cheap if we got government out of it so instead of paying the ever increasing
taxes you could spend that money on contracting with a security company. Or just get together with your neighbors and form your own for the
neighborhood and then you could have people you know looking out for your area or hire a few security personal pay for it like association dues. It
really is simple and not so complicated as people think.
Don't worry I doubt anything like I propose will happen anytime soon. People are too steeped in their "beliefs" of "how things should be" and nothing
like this will happen until it becomes an absolute necessity if it isn't too late.
