And the added bonus: You can set up a bonus system for these Blackwater types to help fill the privatized prison systems. That way they can really kick the free market into high gear all by themselves. But then we'll need to privatize the courts because not all of them are as attuned to the needs of these privatized government services as Pennsylvania courts are.

As the city and its police union near the two-year mark in contract negotiations, Mayor Richard Daley on Saturday said a proposal to allow private security guards to write tickets is worth exploring.
Only Chicago police officers can issue citations, but two far South Side aldermen want armed security guards who patrol business districts in their wards to have that authority as well.Daley said allowing the guards to ticket people for graffiti, parking violations and other minor infractions could free trained police officers to concentrate on combating violent crime. The move could also generate revenue for the city while enforcing minor ordinances.
