burn the money?

Just a thought…

why is it, when I get a ticket [from a police officer] I have to pay a penalty and they get a reward?

Wouldn’t a financial punishment make more sense if when you give the office(r) money related to your infringement, they burn the money right in front of you? I mean, why do they get to keep my money because I did something wrong?

Burning the money would make more sense since this wouldn’t actually ‘compensate’ crimes, which indirectly perpetuates the need for crime and also the need for crimes to support crime reduction agencies [a huge oxymoron if I’ve ever seen one].

If the money were destroyed, then the crime would be bad for everyone. And since crime actually IS bad for everyone… the solution would match the intention.
