Re: Have to love governments.

But it's not murder, it's extortion. Which is already illegal and yet still happens. We don't need new laws for this kind of thing, we need the existing laws to be enforced.

Put another way, I could kill you with a hammer. Shall we make all hammers illegal? What about screwdrivers? Pointy sticks? Rocks?
