Chill guys, the Police can do whatever you ask. All you have to do is pay more taxes. If you want them to retrieve your stolen ipod worth $30 at a cost of $1000 per retrieval, just pay an extra 10-20% of your income a year. It is that simple. In fact if you pay more taxes you don't need door locks either. The police can police your house. You don't need insurance for your car either, the government can step in and pay for accidents as a service to the people. This is not unreasonable, as a people we have to decide where the government stops and we take responsibility, what is the most efficient way to achieve a goal.

Damn .. I was just thinking that halfway through reading the parent post !! Can you even prove that something can be, but have no reason ? I mean can you conclusively prove that a particular mix of matter/antimatter has happened, but there was no reason why it happened ? You can say that the result is random, and you can't come to know it completely due to quantum effects, but can you say that the outcome has no reason why it ended up what it is, no forces of nature shaped it to be what it is.
