What if a bank could have its very own police force?

    They may as well. After all if the V. A has its own police dept., why not an agency that at least has sometging to do with money? Friggin V.A. police crack me up. 2 donut eaters in a mop closet. 2-11 in progress in X-ray. Possible suicide attempt in psych ward. Just the facts ma'am.

    The conflict of interest with a bank enforcing policy, policy's that happen to be the law of the land, is quite obvious. And it has "something to do with money".

    exactly; why shouldn't a private bank have it's own army, err police, staffed with returning Vets, well trained in the deployment of lethal weapons?

    They run and control the nation so it makes sense. What's a private cartel of Euro bankers without their own cops/military?

    Of course their puppet cannot deny them anything. They could ask for a missile silo and construction would begin the next day.

    I'm pretty sure that the big banks have always had their own "security" / police forces. Historically speaking, Wells Fargo had their own armed security force back in the old stagecoach days. The financial institutions are their own entity, regardless of what the populace believes, who answer to no one....much less a small, local police force or an intrusive government that can't manage their own accounts.

    One of the banks on main st in Oregon City in the 40's and 50's had a ceiling walkway with a guard with a rifle on duty all the time. They pretty much have done away with bank guards everywhere now.

    The large railroads (Union Pacific and BNSF) have their own police forces, and many company's private security forces were deputies of the local Sheriff with law enforcement abilities on-property way back when. Nothing new here.
