    Forget about the source - so you disagree with the statistics? Do you have others to present to counter them?

    So would yours. It is only possible to punish people AFTER they have committed a crime.

    But it is possible by patrolling to reduce crime. Put a speed limit sign in a town with no cop and everyone will ignore the sign. Put a cop by the sign on random days and half the people might follow the law. Your system calls for no oversight, so no one will follow the law as long as they can make money by breaking it.

    I've got no problem with patrolling to fight crime. That's what police forces are supposed to do: force people to follow the law.

    With your limited Federal government I didn't expect there to be an equivalent of the EPA. Sorry I misunderstood you.

    You did not misunderstand me. I don't see much of a role for the federal government when it comes to protecting the environment within any of the states. There may be some limited role the federal government has to play in mediating disputes between states over environmental issues.

    If the police FORCE people to follow the law then they aren't doing a very good job. I don't know how it's possible to FORCE people to follow the law?

    Laws are created and people either follow them or not.

    The primary job of police is to ENFORCE the law...not FORCE the law...and their is a significant difference.
