Legal Business: My liquor store is robbed. I call the cops.

Illegal Business: I am robbed for my cocaine.
If I call the cops, I am laughed at or arrested.
If I do nothing, they rob me again every week.
I can only save the business through vigilante justice.
Maybe a kid gets caught in the crossfire.
