Defunding our police..

Recommended Posts

I have not paid attention to much of the news lately.  Honestly, don't know where to go for factual, unbiased information.

This thing - defund police - on the face of it it sounds like people want to do away with police.  I see some just want to take away some of their money and spend it in different ways.

But how does fewer or no police work?  Is there any logic to it?  Has to be, right?

If you read about it and understand it you might realize it’s not that strange. 

If people would read about really happen with George Floyd this wouldn’t even been thought of.

Ok I’m the resident “libtard” de jour here and this is the goofiest idea I’ve ever heard of.  I feel badly enough for our police officers, the rotten 1% making the rest of them look bad, who are out there literally putting their posterior on the line everyday.   But this is irresponsible and dangerous.  Goes WAY over the line.  Let those communities who want to defund— try out that little experiment.

I think this movement is really just a play to weaken some of these old guard police officers unions who are unwilling to accept any kind of modest change, such as body cameras.  Not a bad thing.

That's a very "outside looking in" statement.   What you are calling the "truly good LEO's" have a hiccup.  In every department the good cops know who the jackasses in their department are, yet they cover for them, and do nothing to get them corrected or removed.  Whether out of loyalty, or just because they don't wanna stir crap in the department.   If there were truly some honest to goodness GOOD (oath abiding) COPS....then a bad one wouldn't last 2 weeks on the job.  Ever!

I also have to roll my eyes everytime I hear you say "they put their life on the line everyday".  That's BS.  They have all the coolest toys, have immediate access to as much backup as they need before advancing on anyone, and unless they slept through training they know the best and SAFEST way to handle every situation.  Plus, if you scare them they can just kill you. I mean c'mon.... A job driving a truck, a job working on machinery, a job mowing lawns, or a job at a convenience store... is 100 times more dangerous than being a cop.  

I'm not sure what "defunding" means in that instance, but I'm pretty sick of the M.O. of most all city and county law enforcement agencies.  I dislike the way they actively look for someone to arrest for any reason.  It's obvious to me that they are being trained and hired to fill the courtrooms Monday thru Friday every week, all year long.    Of course every community needs law enforcement, but that doesn't justify quotas and standing room only court rooms 5 days a week. Especially if they are already receiving funding from other avenues. 

I'd be afraid that "defunding" is just going to make them even MORE greedy for YOUR dollars.  It certainly isn't going to make police harrassment LESS.   

Everyone should have already learned that the way to be LEFT ALONE by the police is to FEED THEM WELL beforehand.  🙄  If George Floyd delivered pies to the justice center every other Tuesday, he'd not only still be alive, he would have been able to say "What? A counterfeit $20 ?  Where the hell did THAT come from?"

And they'd be actively looking for who actually printed it.  😉 But nope, I'm betting there's no ongoing investigation on the maker of the alleged fake dough.  Find some evidence that Floyd was involved in counterfeiting cash.....and all this crap would be over.
