Knock off the police precept for the council tax, and give us that. Also knock off a large part of the police funding, and give us that too. The caveat being that we then have to use the money to pay a local gangster some protection money to guard our property. Neighbourhoods could club together to buy cover for entire streets.

Far fetched? Yes! Unworkable? Certainly! But is it any worse than the current system where the police simply abandon real crime in favour of coining it in from catching people who drop litter or don't wear their seatbelts etc?

Or more to the point....what if anything, did the victim do to the criminal.
