    Okay, show of hands:

    “How many people say it’s only a matter of months until some less-than-completely-braindead armed guard realizes there’s more percentage in holding one of these guys hostage than actually protecting him?”

    • Andrew

      What’re the chances they’ll hire guards that aren’t completely brain dead? What’re the chances anyone not completely brain dead will apply?

      • Liam_McGonagle

        Oh there are all sorts of entrepreneurial types about. Don’t you worry about a lack of applicants.

        The other scenario you posit, of a completely brain dead staff is also interesting. If that happens it would be the exception rather than the rule, statistically, but it sho’ as fudge would be interesting to see how effective they are.

          More likely, if the shit really hits the fan, why protect a person & their wealth if you can dispose of that person & keep their wealth?

            Shit yeah, bitch. The Governor (Brian) brought that point home on Sunday.

    The banana republicization of the whole world is ramping up.

    Yeah, Laurent Kabila thought his fucking dictatorial ass was safe, too.
