And You Rely on the Police to Protect You?

I read an interesting story this morning:

San Jose's non-response policy catches alarm industry off guard

The San Jose Police Department decided that they would stop responding to burglar alarms since so many of their responses were for non-events.  I wonder if the people in that city pay an "alarm monitoring fee" as we must.  That would be a double-whammy - pay for something you don't get.

So much for relying on the "police protection" your taxes are supposed to be paying for.  Just leave a sign out for the burglars saying, "Ignore the noise, no police will come."

This is the modern state at work.
