The complete idiocy of politicians across the country that want to reduce law enforcement budgets in favor of social projects that are known for failure is mind boggling. You want anarchy, this is how you get anarchy. The United States of America was founded on the rule of law.

 

Violent criminals have run amok in this country for months. Have not seen much outrage from our so called leaders until the Capitol protests. Too close to home for the cocktail quaffing, tennis anyone self aggrandizing elitist snobs in congress.

We are going to have UNITY!  I guess that is what those characters in Downtown Denver around the State Capitol, and those in Seattle or wherever were doing burning stuff last night.  They were unified in their anarchic activities! :angry:  People say to cheer up, it could be worse.  I'm afraid if I do cheer up it'll get worse! :ph34r:

On Inauguration Day, Antifa attacked the Oregon Democrat HQ.  Has anyone heard Biden, his Admin, or Gen Psaki condemn it?

The irony in this "defund" movement is that since 1964 the same areas of poverty and high crime that the Civil Rights Act of that year was supposed to fix, has not happened. Despite dozens of programs and millions of tax dollars, these areas have remained pretty much the same.

 

But they keep re-electing the same party.

 

And keep reaping the same results.

 

So how are the police the problem?

 

And if so, how does defunding them cure the problem?

Sometimes we just gotta give folks the leeway to screw up.

More like hundreds of billions of tax dollars have been dumped in those areas.

I read a couple of news reports that described what went on in Portland on inauguration day. They made no attempt or reference as to who was responsible.

Communists that call themselves  Antifa.
I wouldn’t doubt that it was just for show so that certain politicians that are aligned with communistic ideals can say they abhor what is going on so they appear more moderate.

More like useful idiots, I think.  Anarchists with no real agenda except to tear down and burn anything they can touch.  These are not the army of the proletariat; they are a mob of the unwashed, entertaining themselves on someone elses's dime, and going home to Mom and Dad's at the end of each "protest".

Politics isn't about facts and logic, it's about emotion, fund raising, votes and keeping their precious position or seat in government.

 

So those politicians pushing to defund the police are doing what the majority of THEIR constituents want, even if their constituents are unable to recognize that if they achieve their goal of defunding the police that the crime rate will skyrocket.

The same ones as now and probably some more of the area's constituents will start

I think buying some water cannons equipped with video cameras would be awesome. It would stimulate the economy, clear the streets, clean the streets, put out molotov cocktails and if you started a youtube channel you could make money to pay for them. Not to mention the entertainment value.

Why do you want to take cops away from fighting crime so they can respond to a call that should be handled by social workers? Your absolutism is not any better than that on the left.

Except that it may be impossible from a 911 call or a citizen complaint to determine whether you need a police response or a mental health professional. at least in the first instance.  Would you prefer to send an unarmed responder into a potentially deadly scenario?  If there were a reliable way to differentiate between "real" crimes and social needs, I'm sure that the police would prefer to handle the crimes and leave the "soft" matters to others.  But until that separation can be made quickly and reliably, you can't expect the police to NOT respond, or to respond with less than complete precautions for their own safety.

I don't really know you too well, but it seems that I remember you posting before that you're former LEO so obviously your opinion should carry more weight on this topic than mine. It just seems to me that 911 dispatchers already make choices between police and fire and EMT and in many instances they could do the same for this. It also seems that if you have social workers in your budget and you default to using police instead of them that you're not making the best use of your budget or your different resources. I didn't say it's easy, but I've never known police to say that not being easy would ever stop them from doing something,

I do want to say another thing though, I've heard people say they should use somebody besides police to "de-escalate" domestic disturbance situations, even I know that's one of the worst ideas ever.
