Texas has set up a $10,000 bounty for turning in women who have abortions. What crime is up next for a bounty? Speeding? Gun violations? Pot growing?
So, Texas has gone full East Germany Stasi and set up a system that allows individuals to sue a woman who has an abortion after 6 weeks, or anybody who helps them. The oddest thing is that the money is paid directly to the government’s informant.
Interesting idea. Shall we pay informants for all crimes? How about speeding? Report a speeder, get 10 grand? Gun crimes? Report an unregistered gun, get 10 grand? Growing weed? Driving without a license? Drunk driving? The world is filled with future government informants who would love to tell the Texas Secret Police about their criminal neighbors for $10,000.
What could go wrong?
