Privatization Gone Insane

Chicago gives badges to mercenaries. Not content with giving cops free rein to act as thugs, municipalities are giving hired thugs free rein to act as cops.
You just know how this will turn out.

Can Private Security Guards Act As Cops?

"They're private security guards, already on patrol, but they may soon have the powers of Chicago Police officers."

"No traffic violations such as moving violations – such as moving violations. Small things – illegally parked, blocking the parking," said Ald. Anthony Beale (9th).
That wasn't exactly what Mayor Daley thought when he was asked about it on Saturday. He said the security force would have the power to enforce "moving violations and citations including loitering, littering and graffiti."
This means they're still working on it."
