Call the Anti-Police: Ending the State’s “Security” Monopoly

This is the most amazing thing. Dale Brown is a Detroit man that’s bridging the security gap left by a failing police force. His Threat Management Center is a smart alternative to the police, which is much needed in Detroit. He explains that no arrests are needed because he prevents crime in a variety of ways including using cameras and outsmarting criminals. Brown sells his security services to people who think they need protection, a good example being families and the elderly in dangerous neighborhoods police tend to avoid. His approach has been very effective. I think this is a revolutionary alternative to the way we police, especially as state run police departments become more militarized. The best part is that if this idea was able to be implemented on a large scale, there would be almost no need for prisons. Our system is broken and our jails are filled with non-violent offenders. Dale Brown does not concern himself with these “criminals.” He only prevents violent crimes in order for people to feel safe in their neighborhoods. Does this sound too good to be true?
