Default De-fund the Police? The Wrong Answer to the Right Problem

De-fund the Police? The Wrong Answer to the Right Problem



"Activists are picking up momentum with calls to defund police departments across the country. But the problem isn't just police departments, its the cities and municipalities that use police departments as a source of revenue in order to make budgets. "

Fines and Fees generate funds.
Cops send most time on small BS "crimes" parking etc.

there needs to be a redo of the system where standards and practices re uniform. some places that will mean putting cops through more training, other places it may mean replacing them. i do think a shift from military tools to human resource tools is a good first step. also the mentally ill and homeless are as at risk as minorities and education in those areas is long overdue.

when leadership was asked they said they did not think it wise to defund the police. I thought they did till I heard them speak. shows how pervasive is the shock headline and propaganda going on.
makes you wonder if the opposition party/ms media fights this hard against change does that mean they are in favor of bigotry?
