Way to go, Kolkata cyclists! But what is up with the municipal government and police there?

(cross-posted from my blog at

Is there any published research on how many more lives would be saved if we stopped funding the Überwachungsstaat and instead spent the money on health care or road safety or something else known to actually have an effect?

(For example, even accepting temporarily the argument that all these civil liberties violations actually somehow save lives: if we could save twenty cancer patients for the cost of preventing a terrorist attack that killed three people, that would be interesting to know about. But my numbers here are entirely made up; does anybody have real numbers?)
