You could produce “CSI: Athens” at $30 bucks a day for each cop rental (somebody call Bruckheimer)

Yes, the indignity of being Greek just keeps getting worse and worse. It’s not enough that the IMF has stolen all the assets, they want to humiliate the Greek people as well.

    Rent-a-Pope-Benedict comes in at a higher price, but we need him to give out vague statements like this, while surrounded in obscene wealth:
    DigitalOne – Technology without God is dangerous: Pope

  2. @Max,

    this is typical of ALL poor countries …. that’s why you have to bribe cops in Mexico and can buy your way out of jail.

  3. Nat says:

    ?? But they’ve put the price up ! I don’t see what the point in the headline is or why Max or Stacy have written what they’ve written because it creates a FALSE impression.

    The article says that they have always been free before now but now they are going to charge..

  4. Nat says:

    @General Rasta, SLA

    Did you actually read the article or just react ?

  5. Bruce says:

    Misleading headline though, since 30 euros is just under 40 USD :)

    Rent-a-cop in Greece?… Here in London, Murdoch’s News Corp has been doing it
    for years.

    Here in the states it is common for police to moonlight by working side jobs.

    “Here in London, Murdoch’s News Corp has been doing it

    Exactly!

    And JPMorgan seems to be donating to the cause of the NYPD!

    In fact in the UK all police forces are for profits businesses. This has always gone on but the prices are much higher. The BBC hire cops when they are shooting programmes in public places, football clubs, power station owners pay for cops to go undercover in protest movements and on and on. If you watch a film on the internet called It’s an illusion by John Harris you will see how this all works.

    The whole thing is like interlocking corporations taking profits at every level. It like a huge tax farm. Its just produce extraction with the bankers at the top of the food chain followed by subordinate corporations such as governments, local governments, Police, courts and prisons. For profit corporations that operate as a cabal under contract law.
    Costs are socialised (Taxpayers) and profits are privatised. Bankers add more fait funding as debt, with interest that never gets paid off but creates an ever growing free lunch to the bankers.

    The two legged farm animals get co-opted at birth by birth registry. This gives them a personhood which is really a legal fiction.

    For centuries this was carried out by the church on behalf of the monarch to create a legal way to subvert common law and the basic rights of natural born people. That’s why they conduct marriages and demonise illegitimate children (Unregistered children can’t be legally taxed or coerced). The death register is the same thing. It just a system of accounts to stock take the great unwashed herd that they consider their property.

    The Christian faith thing was just a way of enforcing conformity and keeping order. If you work hard and give to the church, have some more kids to keep the stock numbers up, “turn the other cheek” which is code for accepting punishment and don’t do anything to be disruptive, they will have a word with the big man and you can retire in heaven as long as you die first.

    It’s called fascism. It started in Babylon and worked it’s way up until finally arriving in Northern Europe and the US. This is TPTB. They hold power through a combination of force and fraud.

    I hear prima nocta’s coming back in style, too. Of course, the Irish will still have first dibs on being the prima prima nocta, but it shouldn’t take long for it to be translated into Greek, Spanish, what have you…

    The more crime, the higher the profits for the ‘police’.

    More crime = Higher profits. (Police)

    More people ill = Higher profits. (privatised Healthcare & Pharma/ Drug suppliers)

    More fires = Higher profits. (privatised Fire-brigades)
