I’ve noted that a great many of our Betters, especially those who live in gated communities, are making statements in support of defunding the police. Now, it’s likely that many cities such as Los Angeles will be suffering severe losses of revenue because of business failures caused by the Wuhan virus shutdown, and those jurisdictions may have to make real cuts in public services, including their police departments.
Our Betters could render a real public service by offering to forgo police services in their neighborhoods. That would permit a smaller, less expensive force to cover the remainder of the jurisdiction. Our Betters could rely on their Second Amendment rights to protect themselves, or they could expand the private security services they already employ, providing jobs for laid-off cops.
