I think it would be much more interesting if cops had competition, and that the competition mattered.
Customer: “Well, we could call the police, but Easy Pete’s Chillin’ Brothers will get the job done without shooting citizens in the face.”
Police (losing their paychecks because capitalism and free market serving customers what they want): “Dammit, we just can’t compete against that! Better shoot more people in the face. It’s all we got woe-woe-woe!”
And yet some people: “But my life ain’t complete unless I get to cheer on people being shot in the face.”
Their neighbors: “We’ll be calling Easy Pete’s about you, neighbor.”
