Episode 12 – Private security in a libertarian society

OAKLAND, CA - OCTOBER 07: Security officer Steven Long (L) with VMA Security Group stops to meet with a resident as he patrols the Sequoyah Hills neighborhood on October 7, 2013 in Oakland, California. As crime continues to rise in Oakland and an understaffed police department struggles to meet the needs of the city's residents, neighborhoods are beginning to band together to hire private security firms to patrol their streets. Several Oakland neighborhoods have formed security councils and have anywhere from 50 to 100 homes sign up for the security patrols that can be as little as $15 per month per household.

Election Day is tomorrow and you’re probably sick and tired of hearing about Trump and Clinton.  We agree, so Episode 12 of The Rollo and Slappy Show will not have anything to do with it!  Instead, we talk about private security.  How might it work in a libertarian society?  We’re often accused of being “against” the police as if we either have to agree with the status quo of policing or be in favor of doing away with police altogether.  That of course is not the case.  Instead we argue that the market is a much better solution.
