Comment on Bottle shop cops ‘security guards, paid for by the taxpayer’ by Eleanor Diflo.

Publish the profits that bottle shops make. Alcohol causes problems in our community. Let those who make profits pay for the licensing officers.
Alcohol is not an essential service. So let the owners pay for security and the problems caused as part of their licence fee.
Cigarette companies should pay for the health problems cigarettes cause.
Like asbestos,the companies which profit from the sales of these harmful products should pay for the harm the products cause.
