Review of APB

APB (2016–2017)
5/10
Democratic Government Bad, Hyper-Rich Dictator Good
29 April 2017
Warning: Spoilers
I'm sure that whoever created this series isn't clever enough to think about this but perhaps cities are under-funded because of hyper-rich creeps don't pay enough in taxes? So instead of a functioning government what we need is a benevolent dictator in the form of a billionaire. It's about one guy who is rich enough to be the government. This is poisonous stuff here, folks. It's more anti-government venom, anti-democracy, anti- people and goes completely against the idea of a one-man, one-vote model upon which the United States was conceived (at least in theory).

It's difficult for me to see beyond this premise to give the series more of an evaluation. It's just too offensive for me to look beyond. Because the protagonist feels street crime on a personal level he is compelled to get involved.

"When cops don't get the resources to do their job."

And why not? Because we have chosen instead to let a small fraction of 1% of our nation to run roughshod over the rest of us and make us feel that being poor is a crime. We probably could have law enforcement like this but instead we've let politicians scare us into pouring a frightening amount of our resources into national defense and now Trump wants to build a worthless wall.
