What are “Victimless Crimes?”

Coming up with a list of all of the things that the victimless crime bill would allow is complicated because there are so many of them. Many of the things it would allow are not obvious because they are allowed now but with a permit or regulation. Also many are included because you are allowed to do them now but not for money.

  • Sell meat from your grill.
  • Sell food you cooked at home.

  • Be a home inspector
  • Be a dietition

  • Be a Plumber
  • Have an employment agency
  • Make a living doing whatever you are good at.

 

All of these things will also have the awesome side effect of ALL police being able to focus on real crimes like when someone does damage with there car, when someone steals from you, or hurts you. It would also eliminate over 90% of police interactions. This in turn would reduce police shootings. It would also greatly decrease the police wanting to search your private property or give you a catheter to collect your urine by force.

You might think that some of these things need regulation. What you should ask is if we need the government to be that regulator or if technology could do it for us. Why couldn’t we look at google reviews when choosing a plumber. If they do a good job they will get good reviews. If not don’t hire them.

Please leave a comment if you can think of other things that aren’t on this list.
