Terrified Of Crime, Sacramento Neighborhoods Seek Private Security

Over the past few years, Sacramento neighborhoods have seen a sharp rise in crime. But instead of relying on the government and higher taxes, citizens have decided to hire private security firms to help where government fails.

Emily Hannon’s neighborhood in Land Park is no criminal hotspot, but she said the “little things” have added up over her nine years there.

First, the radio was stolen out of Hannon’s locked car. Then decorations disappeared from her front porch. And in recent years, she said, crime targeting her neighbors has seemed to rise, with posts about Land Park car break-ins popping up on the neighborhood social site Nextdoor every week. –Sacbee

Worried that the incidents were piling up, Hannon decided that the whole neighborhood should look further for help.

More than 70 homes in total now [have] joined a small but growing number of Sacramento neighborhoods fed up with [the] petty crime that pool[s] money to hire private security for their streets. Long common among businesses and gated communities, the extra security measures are newer territory for entire blocks of residents who want to combat crimes like car break-ins and bike thefts but realize city resources are stretched.

“They’re dealing with much bigger fish to fry, and they should be,” Hannon said of city police. “We shouldn’t allocate our police resources to petty stuff. But I want to be safe in my neighborhood.-Sacbee

The government will continue to exploit victims to gain more money, but for now, it appears that at least some are wising up and putting their trust in private companies who must work for their pay, rather than the government, who steals for it.

This video offers a simple explanation for why private security firms will offer more safety than the police.

Just imagine the freedom one could feel if allowed to pay for the services they want and exclude themselves from those they do not.

    Were I live they do it with 1/3rd the police America has per population. We have very little crime were I live. But the citizens are allowed to act. We have police there not cops like in America who work. Not guard stop signs all day & look for money for the city. Makes a big difference.

      Where do you live ?

    Private security companies are paid to provide security. The police are paid by the city (from your tax dollars) to collect revenue for the city (from the taxpayers). The police are not motivated to prevent crime. And the only reason they would make an arrest of a criminal is because they can get money from them. But most of the time they are parked somewhere waiting for someone to drive by so they can pull them over and give them a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt, running through a red light where the yellow light is timed to only stay yellow for a couple of seconds, etc. This isn’t crime prevention. It’s extortion.

      I have been on the freeway at night. Where I live, there is hardly a soul on the road around midnight. You can see no one ahead, and no one behind you. Then, you see headlights far, far, behind you. And they keep getting closer. And it’s fast. Turns out to be a cop, who goes 80 mph to see what speed the person way ahead is doing, and to then pull him over for doing 7 mph over the limit. In the cops world, and those who love them, there is nothing wrong with that.

      • SP_88

        Of course they think it’s ok. They speed down the highway at 80 or 90 miles per hour, putting other people at risk, so they can extort money from you.
        They think that they are above the law.

      So, that video of that black lady whose grandkid was executed in her own home, THAT video is on you-tube! It will break your heart, and the worst part of the entire “proceeding”, what a joke, THE ENTIRE PIG DEPARTMENT STOOD BEHIND THAT FUCKING ANIMAL that would NOT even answer her, no emotion WHATSOEVER!!! All those terrorists standing behind it as though she deserved it, IN HER OWN HOME!! It was a midnight “raid” with a no-knock twist!! SAD!

      • SP_88

        Too many times have these no-knock warrants resulted in the death of innocent people, including children. And for what? So they could bust someone for drug possession?
        Since when is it appropriate for a dozen or so heavily armed police to smash down your door at 4:am, and wave guns in your face and hold small children at gunpoint, and destroy everything in your home looking for drugs or whatever? And most of the time it’s all based on information from some police informant, who himself is a drug user. And too many times they get the wrong address, and they end up shooting an innocent person who is not expecting anyone to break into their home, and so they come to the door with their gun in their hand, which is a perfectly normal response to the sound of someone trying to break down their door. And the police are never held accountable for these egregious violations of our rights.
        Do you remember the time when the police tossed a flash grenade into a baby’s crib, and the police blamed the parents for it? None of them were held accountable either. The police have committed terrible atrocities because of their gross negligence and zero accountability, and they never seem to be held accountable for it.
        How can they possibly defend the actions of people who show up to the wrong address and shoot the person who lives there? How is that able to be defended in court? Since when is it ok to shoot someone who hasn’t committed any crime, while they are standing in their own home at 3 or 4:am? It’s indefensible. There is no question that the police should be punished for killing an innocent person who has done nothing wrong. Exigent circumstances are no excuse.

    I can see insurance companies doing this when claims start racking up

  • Farmer Scott

    So,all they need to do now is create a ‘private court system’. Then we can watch people go through a string of private businesses,from arrest,through adjudication to incarceration. Some, being happy that government won’t be ‘wasting any more of our money’?

    For those asleep when reason and logic were arrested:

    1) Police love crime and criminals.
    2) More crime and criminals equals job security for police.
    3) More crime and criminals equals higher taxes to pay for more police with full paid retirements to arrest more criminals.
    4) Courts love police who arrest criminals
    5) More arrests equal job security equals job security for courts and court staff
    6) More arrests equal higher taxes to pay for more for courts and court staff with full paid retirements.
    7) More crime and criminals equals more sentences which equal job security for prison builders and prison staff
    8) More sentences equals higher taxes to pay for more for prisons and prison staff with bonuses to prison corporations.
    9) Current penal systems are structured to increase recidivism.
    10) Higher recidivism rates equals returning to step one.
    Got the picture?
