Police are the criminals, its just they hide behind a blue or black suit and wear a badge.
If police are the criminals then why did less police lead to more crime a few months back?
@Jack9949: You're thinking along the lines of crimes like robbery and theft as crimes. Cops aren't necessarily robbing or stealing from others but they are breaking and not honoring the constitutional and state laws. For example. Cops illegally pulls you over, he's committing a crime, illegally searching your car or your person, he's committing a crime, illegally detaining or arresting someone is committing a crime, physically unprovoked assaulting someone he's committing a crime, filing false police report is committing a crime. Anything a cop does that is against state laws or the constitution makes him or her a criminal.
Alright. But either way I’d much rather have the Police doing those far more minor crimes than sit back and watch homicides spike 300% in NYC. Do you not understand their importance? There are people who rely on the protection of the Police. Especially in areas with strict gun laws where only the criminals are armed.
Why don’t you advocate reforming the Police instead of defunding them? I never said they were perfect but they are still needed because society is worse off without them.
You don't understand. A cop is suppose to be a law enforcer. A cop can't intentionally break laws even petty ones as that will begin to corrupt their minds and lead them into deeper corruption overtime as they will get an inflated ego thinking they are above the law.Defunding the police is about taking some resources from some local over inflated police departments and investing the money into local mental health clinics and crime prevention programs.Local police aren't trained mental professionals to be dealing with mental health patients in the streets as that often turns violent. Lastly, local police departments don't need to be having military style tanks in force.Read this. www.politico.com/.../
Well a mental health professional or social worker can’t detain a mentally unstable person who is being physically aggressive. That’s not part of their job.
They arrive with cops, not alone.
Oh ok. Why don’t you say “redirect funds” then? Because to “defund” means to completely dismantle. I’m not kidding.
To defund means to “prevent from continuing to receive funds”
I’d cancel that order right now. You are giving people a false impression of yourself and your intentions. People won’t assume everything you just told me. They’ll think you’re evil unless they are some crazy liberal. Very few people actually support defunding the Police. Unless of course they are ignorant on the matter like yourself
You're the one that is ignorant. I see things for what they actually are, not what I desire them to be or like look to fit my world view.
Excuse me but I just gave you the definition of “defund” based on what you just told me you don’t want the Police gone completely.
You don’t even know what the cause you are supporting is really all about.
Lol poor kid.
Dudeeee... you’re the one that can’t read! 🤦♂️
He knew he couldn't breathe that's why he did it on purpose to slowly suffocate him for 8:46 to death. Derek chauvin is a demon who had hate and murder in his heart til it physically manifested itself openly.
White, racist, idiot, that's who he was
@Hispanic-Cool-Guy - Floyd couldn't breathe. He was also a rapist & drug dealer who didn't care who he hurt. Hardly innocent or worth crying over.
@SomeBlondeChick: Its not about being innocent or not. Mr. Floyd could have murdered 100 people in that same day. Once a suspect is arrested, then you have no business doing anything else to him or her as the person is totally defenseless at that point and doesn't represent no harm whatsoever.
@gagsucksballs1. If a person can’t breathe, he can not speak!Try it sometime.
If he can't breathe, he will be able to speak, but, barely...I'm sure the cop heard him say "i can't breathe"Didn't the guy who was some 100 lbs overweight say on camera "I can't breathe" when he was being arrested, and you could hear him clear as day. What was his name, oh, right, ERIC GARNER
@gagsucksballs1. Isn’t that how you can tell if someone is choking. They can’t speak!No air moving over the vocal cords.Take a first aid course sometime.
If they can't breathe they can still speak, BARELYThat's why we were able to hear Eric Garner, we heard him say it, before he was choked to deathdude, get off of it, you're not going to win this
@SomeBlondeChickThere was never proof of any of that being truethat was a smear campaign by the right, to make him look like the bad guyIT WAS NEVER TRUE

They gotta show up. I pay their salary. It's their job to provide a service for what citizens pay for.
The joke would be on the person.
Some of the financial resources can be heavy invested in local mental health clinics, crime prevention programs and watch dogs. Defunding the police doesn't mean all police are gone from patrolling local neighborhoods, but they certainly don't need military style equipment or more trash police officers which are the main problems in the community. A rotten person with a gun who is givin legal authority to potentially shoot and kill a citizen has no business being a cop.
Yet defund sounds more like stop paying them completely which causes a whole slew of shit. Hope everyone knows the details like that. And thats what they'd actually agree to do.
To me seems like this is the main issue it sounds like a horrible idea because it looks like people want to just stop the police work entirely. Also if that does happen and cops have less to pretect themselves with, that ain't good either.
Oh sorry I misread. I thought it said DEFEND the police. No way would I wear that shirt
Lol. Its a shame you can’t delete your own comments here
