Police Funding and Forced Labor

15-11-2003, 02:23
"Don't tell me you plan to cater to these speed freaks!" police officer Freddy Falopian comments over coffee and donuts. "Encouraging this sport is only going to increase the street racing problem because all these punks who can't afford to run the professional circuit are going to want to satisfy their lead feet the way they have been! What we need is more police funding to crack down on these punk hotrodders."

This is the position your government is preparing to adopt.

Does increasing police funding boost the economy or crash it? I forgot which one is better in this case. Also:

"Everyone knows re-education is a waste of money, we shouldn't go soft on these crooks!" says CEO Billy Falopian of the People Trading Corporation. "Simply place all rapists and criminals in La Christiania into forced labor under the management of our company to serve out their sentences. When we're through with them, they won't even think of jaywalking, much less harming another person. We get cheap labor, and these crooks get put straight. Everybody benefits... well, except the crooks."

This is the position your government is preparing to adopt.

Aside from lowering civil rights, does this have any other detrimental effects?

I would think the first one might lower the economy a bit, but it wouldn't make it crash.
