Police Telemarketing

Last summer I had my bike stolen, right off the front porch. I called up the police and told them about it, they never found my bike. However, they were nice enough to put me in their telephone directory. So, whenever they’re looking for money to host some event or produce a brochure they call me and many others I imagine. Policing is a business too. I imagine they pull a lot of people in too, the ones who feel guilty about something. Maybe they’ve tagged every occasion that I haven’t given them money, so that when I reach a certain point of non-compliance they can arrest me for something stupid and get the money that way.
