police, criminals and victims

It’s been pretty obvious for a while now that the police no longer serve the public and that they are increasingly being used as a weapon of social control. In fact there are problems with the very idea of a police force.
In a recent post What are the police for? Tim Newman makes a point that I’ll admit had not occurred to me before. The police are not there to protect us from criminals. They are there primarily to protect criminals from their victims. They exist in order to prevent vigilante justice.
And we live in a society in which the courts are really only interested in punishing political crimes (and increasingly in punishing Thought Crime) rather than actual crimes. 
With neither the police nor the courts providing justice this means that for ordinary people the choice will increasingly be between vigilante justice and no justice at all. With the police determined to prevent vigilante justice it’s obvious that things are going to get quite unpleasant.
Tim Newman also makes the very important point that the rich have never had any need for a police force to protect them. They have always been able to pay for private protection. The only reason the rich want a police force is to keep the middle classes happy and the lower classes under control. Now it seems that the rich no longer care about keeping the middle classes happy and that they are mostly concerned with crushing dissent.
This is going to end very badly.
