Now that many states TAX products bought on the Internet shouldn't they protect their citizens ?

The States muscled their way into the Internet and got the vendors there to charge Sales Tax for the state where the purchaser lives, even if the vendor is in another state. That is sort of OK as an argument can be made either way. The problem is that while the states are getting TAXes from the Internet, they aren't really doing anything to protect their citizens from the cyber crimes that are occurring on the Internet. If the states want a piece of the Internet money, then doesn't it follow that they should also provide a Service to their sales taxed citizens
