It seems as though people are crowdfunding just abotu everythign now-a-days. This include a private security force for a neighborhood in Oakland California in which a string of muggings have residents on edge. The residents are using Crowdtilt to host their campaign and have already reached their goal. Currently they have taken in $15,525. The campaign can be seen here: https://www.crowdtilt.com/campaigns/security-patrol-for-lower-rockridge-northwest/description

Private security sounds a good idea, and one that has been talked about (it might vene be in place now) here in the UK too.

It's just so sad that neighborhoods feel the need to go down this route due to the inadequacies of their local police force.

Could you guys imagine if government would stop taxing and spending our money, and instead each community had their own crowdfunding portal to work with in which they vote for what's needed with their money? Maybe that is the future of government....
