T-Rex: I've started running a protection racket.
T-Rex: It's great!
T-Rex: Hey Dromy, hand over a hundred bucks, or I'll stomp on your business premises.
Dromiceiomimus: Stop! I'll pay!
T-Rex: I'll stomp this guy who didn't pay up.
Utahraptor: Hey, T-Rex!
Utahraptor: Another heavy has threatened my property. Protect me from him!!
T-Rex: That's not how a protection racket works!
T-Rex: Is it?
T-Rex: Wait, no. Is it?
T-Rex: What have I done??

One would presume that if you're paying for protection, then you actually get some protection.
Otherwise it'd be some sort of racket.
