Jamie Dimon Buys Hisself a Police Force

Jamie Dimon has put a down payment on his own police force:

JPMorgan Chase recently donated an unprecedented $4.6 million to the New York City Police Foundation.

The gift was the largest in the history of the foundation and will enable the New York City Police Department to strengthen security in the Big Apple. The money will pay for 1,000 new patrol car laptops, as well as security monitoring software in the NYPD’s main data center...
“These officers put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe,” Dimon said. “We’re incredibly proud to help them build this program and let them know how much we value their hard work.”

I thought us li’l old taxpayers were supposed to pay for those things. So that the police would, you know, protect all of us.

Silly me. That would be socialism...

It seems Jamie feels he may need more protection of late.

I'm loving every minute of watching these criminals squirm.

What kind of pie?

Socialism is where the state owns the means of production. Properly understood, Wall Street is our state. We are all socialists now.

Ownership and control are different. I figured this out when our neighbor the airline mechanic, a co-"owner" of United Airlines, began to suffer increasingly nasty reactions to workplace chemicals. He's dead now. Cancer. He was a nice guy. A single father of two kids.

Surely JPMC gets some naming rights or something for that much money. Logos on the police uniform shirts? Decals on their riot shields?
