Taoist Law Enforcement?

tao“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”

From John Lott:

People in one Oregon county are substituting private for public provision.  From Fox News:

. . . The government in Josephine County, where nearly 70 percent of the land is owned by the U.S. government, had long relied on federal timber subsidies to pay the bills. When the feds terminated the funds, county officials scrambled to pass a May 2012 tax levy to make up a nearly $7.5 million budget shortfall.

However, the county’s residents voted against the levy, and as a result the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office was gutted. The major crimes unit closed, dozens of prisoners were released from the county jail and the department reduced operations to Monday-Friday, eight hours a day.

What do you think will happen next?

  3. The citizens will do as others are currently doing – form a citizens’ posse (substitute whatever word you wish, here) and do private security.
