Criminals probably aren’t getting any dumber (how could they?) but nowadays they do turn themselves in

Chicago teens beat a crippled old man to death for his soda can nickels, post video of themselves doing so on You Tube. I used to advocate mandatory shooting lessons for gang members and other sub-humans so that they wouldn’t hit innocent bystanders and would kill their intended target, rather than paralyze him and cost society even more money. Now I think we should just pass out free video phones and watch the arrest rate soar.

    The police department has no interest in stopping crime. The more crime, the more cops you need. Overtime, pensions, sick days, donuts. These things cost money!

    You do realize that the Feds (taxpayers) already provide free cell phones to the “poor”, right? Also, we are now paying for subsidized broadband service for the same poor.

    This is (unfortunately) from a PR release by one of the providers but it covers the topic succinctly:
    To qualify for Lifeline’s free government cell phone or the new cheap internet program, you must already participate in any one of a number of other government aid programs, such as the National School Lunch Program, food stamps (SNAP), public housing assistance, Medicaid, Section 8 housing, Supplemental Security Income, various Home Energy Assistance Programs, and other programs. You can also qualify if your household income is no more than 135% of federal poverty guidelines (and as much as 150% in some states).
