Bingo. Which is why, in addition to double-charging protestors for services they’ve already paid for, the suggestion that the protestors pay for the additional police coverage was the real “asinine exercise in pure stupidity.”
And, not that I want to speak for Donovan because he’s really good at doing so for himself, but I don’t think he was just talking about police services but rather infrastructure issues as well.
But, I’m suspecting you knew that & just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to mischaracterize or oversimplify his argument.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing.

Are you sure you want the police to start charging for their services on a case-by-case basis?

Well, the good news for both Jay and Paul is that they will get to exercise their belief that property taxpayers should fork out the extra cash to pay for the extra needed resources by the city to deal with the problems and expenses caused by Exxon Mobile driving all their megaloads coming through Moscow on their next tax bill or rent hike. (Boy was that a run on sentence or what?)
