They help the poor more 21.Dec.2014 20:46
there are more poor than rich.
The rich have private security, fences, burglar alarm systems, etc. for protection.
the poor have tax funded police. Thats it.
you may not like the police, and its cool and trendy to hate the police because you want to look cool to your friends and think you won't get no pussy if you like the police, but the truth is, the police help more poor people.
