A Lack of Police Could Create Further Inequity, As the Wealthy Hire Private Security
Even low income communities deserve safety and security
A lack of police could further deepen existing socioeconomic inequalities. Wealthy Americans would likely just hire their own private security from firms like Pinkerton, and wealthy gated communities could even hire their own private police force. They could potentially even use their private security as a militia to cause further violence or conduct personal vendettas. Middle-class and working-class Americans, meanwhile, would be forced to fend for themselves. Without the protection of publicly-funded police officers, the average American would be left without protection and further at the whims of the wealthiest among us.
