That's not a question, it's an argument.  Try next door.

Insofar as it really is a question, the answer is the same as for all
"Why do they?" questions:  money.

Original line from _The Warrior's Apprentice_ by Lois McMaster Bujold:
"Only on Barrayar would pulling a loaded needler start a stampede toward one."
English-to-Russian-to-English mangling thereof: "Only on Barrayar you risk to
lose support instead of finding it when you threat with the charged weapon."
