Comment: I can totally imagine a private police force

I can totally imagine a private police force

that does not need weapons.

Bob Murphy had an interesting vision in some weird fiction book that he wrote (I forget the name of it). In the book, the police force was all women, in armor and helmets, and armed with nothing but nets. When they have to stop a criminal, they just swarm him and subdue him with nets. And everyone trusts them, cause they are women and not armed :)
