So – an idea.
Policing is a service, right?
How does Uber work? By basically dispatching the driver closest to you to provide the service you request. In the case of Uber & Lyft, it’s a ride somewhere. AirBNB? A hotel or room.
Enter Ubercop. Reduce the size of the police force. Encourage concealed carry (CCW) by all adult citizens in the community. If they don’t want to carry, they’ll be more susceptible to being shot by a Democrat voter (check criminal statistics). It’s a free country; their choice.
When a 911 call comes in, the app can ID the closest 50 CCW citizens, and send ’em all a text of an armed robbery at the 7-11 around the corner or across the street from them – the app will know.
Then 50 citizens come in – no salary, no pension, no fancy weapons – and … you think the robber won’t surrender in the face of 50 handguns pointed at him or her by nervous civilians? And if one guy shoots unnecessarily, the other 49 will know all about it.
Want to see crime drop like a stone?
People ignorant of the real rate of violent crime in the “Wild West” would do themselves (and the rest of us) a favor by understanding the reality of nearly every adult male carrying a gun:
Citizen Militia… UberCop.
