The Profit Motive: Crime Does Pay

Frequent commentator and reader Thomas Paine has so eloquently articulated a concept we believe in, we decided to take his comments and make it a post to share with you. Enjoy.

In case you have not figured it out: CRIME DOES PAY.
There is no entity that benefits from crime more than the gov't. Street crime justifies government spending, increased taxation, and massive infringements on human freedom; all favorite delicacies of bureaucrats:

-crime is up we need more cops which entails increased government spending and taxation.

-crime is up we need more cameras which entails increased government spending and taxation.

-crime is up we need to pay the judges bet
ter which entails increased government spending and taxation.

-crime is up we need more police cars which entails increased government spending and taxation.

-crime is up we need more prisons which entails increased government spending and taxation.

-and on and on and on and on.

If you are in The "LEO" business and/or the criminal law business and/or the prison-parole-probation business crime, etc. crime is an investment opportunity with endless possibilities. The very last thing the Calvert Street Court Click wants is a reduction in crime despite what they say. The economics of the situation is set up such that the budgets of the aforementioned entities are directly proportional to the levels of crime in their territories.

So in answer to the question "Why are we not eliminating criminals?", I would answer why would anyone kill a goose that lays golden eggs?

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.

A.F. James MacArthur -- American patriot & lover of liberty.
