Let's talk about if cops are effective....

Goes over numbers of how many cases Cops clear "effectively".
using FBI stats

bottom line, reforming police will probably make them better at doing what we'd all like them to do. Since they aren't doing that great right now anyway.

I subscribe to that guy. I thought 'let's talk about...' sounded familiar.

wow. so yeah that's pretty clear. except for the psychological aspect of maybe getting caught by police, crime is not really prevented or solved anyway. so we might as well revamp, retool and set some standards.

He seems to be comparing solving all crime against police action. Those are two entirely different things.
Typically, police action is the here and now as in.... you were going 55mph in a 25mph zone, or you were drunk driving, or somebody is actively engaged is some other illegal act. Where as, solving crime is an investigation after the fact, as in ... trying to solve a burglary, rape or murder after the fact.

If one were to change the words "solving crime" to "solving cancer" his argument would be to completely reform all medical care. My GP does a pretty good job, I'd hate to see his medical practice 'reformed' simply because he hasn't figured out a cure for cancer.

BTW, what is with all the crap in the background, is this guy a hoarder?
