    There is something unseemly about privatizing the state's police powers to a for-profit company.

    Taking our liberty is the ultimate power of government, and it should be in the hands of hopefully accountable public officials, rather than in the hands of some private corporation.

    I don't really care whether privatizing is cheaper or more expensive -- this is a legitimate function of government and it should remain so.
