Today i continue new version of blog with amasing news. Have a great example which shows a lot elements of private crime prevention system, which i'm inspiring in my blog. We have country, which even have schools for training people to become crime stopping agents and get reward.
Welcome to South Korea!
Please check video before continuing to read: http://www.telerate.com/news/video?videoId=94037 (LT translation: http://tv.delfi.lt/video/5WNiWNq6/ )
and today (18/11/2008) Reuters news http://www.reuters.com/article/lifestyleMolt/idUSTRE4AH1BH20081118
and more info (what more type of infringements new system works)

South Korea has great law which let to rise private crime prevention industry:

* Schools (Mismiz Report and Compensation School, Posang (Korean for compensation) Club);

* State Agencies giving rewards for evidence;

* Students, housevifes and other people and their time, initiative and other resources.

The impact of law was, that "...Students range from housewives to college students, all prompted by a desire for extra cash as the South Korean economy slows".
So law created possibility to get another source of income. And when we know, that in times, than economies slows, crimes starts to rise. So, because of law which started attract private initiative and resources (crime stop industry demonopolisation), some people now can start opposite movement instead involving in crimes!

No needed additional money for government police! Needed just to change law and let people act! Probably that's why government officials (don't want to be named) start to speak about taking action to slow down this process. Can they answer this questions: If this service is needed for society (how many infringements was stopped by private people means the same amount problems Governement Police was unable to resolve... ) and works as best prevention (you never know who can stop you for doing wrong) for infringements and crimes, why they want to stop it? I think they still don't want to be out of monopoly business.

Why some people still shy on doing this? I think S. Koreans are getting huge impact from their neighbours-experiment victims country North Korea. Because of bigger or smaller realationships with northern people rumours sounds, that following on people is bad things. But why not to pay attention, for what "crimes" northerns probably hate reporters or detectives. Mostly for speach breaches, talking with abroad by mobile, any opposite minds or steps on dictator-"god" Kim Jong Il...etc Powerful regime control like in ex-Soviet Union countries gives impact in mentality, that people reporting something are bad, doesn't matter what they report. But i can add one more strange impact from comunism, that a lot people are getting stressed if they get a phone call from Police, doesn't matter what policeman say on that call.
People should imagine, that can be other way of tackling crimes, not only government monopoly. While most industries went to free market, Crime stopping service mostly in all world countries still sitting deep in socialism/comunism.

One more idea to think. Food producers business is not questionable, while crime stoppers business is. Now my question: Without which service people couldn't live: Food or Crime stopping? Could you still live without food? so why governments are not making steps to nationalise food industry, while Crime stopping is in deep monopoly owned by state.

I'm proud of South Korea! Yes,(with You) We Can!

One more bad moment about law which criminalise shopkeepers act of giving away plastic bags to customers. This is bad law, because it victimless! Shoppers decision to give basket for free is not making victims! The worse thing is, that this act is even not gives ecological (secondary) problems! Such law starts only in desperate needs to impact rubbishing things, while true fault is monopolised crime control inefectness. Involving private initiative in rubbishing control, such law should be canceled. Or quick recommendation to S. Korea schools, agencies would be implement self regulation not to act on victimless "crimes". Private people power to handle such "bad things" is much more bigger, but it can split society, because such crimes are similar to North Korea "crimes" mentioned above in this article..
The law should be concentrated not on bag sellers, but on buyers, who handling bags incorrectly (rubbishing them on streets and so on).

And last suggesttion for South Korea and other countries, that they should clearly state to people, that fine is price for catching!
