    Thoughts on De-Funding The Police;

    The evil main stream media seems to be intent on promoting, along with the idiot rioters, the idea of De-Funding The Police.

    Very interesting and being an honest man who says what he is thinking, I am intrigued as to how this will play out.

    On one hand, I think this is so damn funny and idiotic and that it can't be true, that nobody is this stupid. Then I think of the HUGE budgets (and wasted money) that most Law Enforcement Departments have and part of me is for a big cut in the budgets, but also OVERALL cuts in most government's budgets.

    Do a little research on some of the very cool militarized equipment that most Law Enforcement agencies have and I have to admit that I do not want to pay for 5 MRAPS that sit in the parking garage of a nearby local police department, that they have never used except for parades. So in this case I believe that city has gone overboard with We The People's money and probably need their budget cut.

    And on another hand, some of these liberal colleges/universities and famously liberal cities probably should get their wish and eliminate the po-po just so you and I can watch them burn on a slow Friday night!

    A, Watch Out For What You Wish For, kinda thing!

    Also, what rational female would want the police abolished? Maybe the female's who enjoy being raped night after night?

    Regardless of your thoughts, it is no surprise that the evil media is promoting this very weird idea.

    Thoughts?

    If it's a money issue we can get rid of the school's. It has been clearly shown the last few months that we don't need that waste and drain on society.

    I am all for it, under an extremely well defined and accurately accounted for, and reported area.
    For three months leading up to the dissolve of the police. Define the specific area where the effect will be un enforced so to speak. Let everyone know, where the exact boundaries are, and refer to the area as utopia. Then cover it like the purge. All who have expressed support for the idea in all forms of social media, documented, must stay in the zone.
    Broad cast for all to see.

    I think we should do a trial run. All police in the big democratically controlled cities should go out on the “blue flu” for about 4 weeks. Then let’s see what the liberal assholes are calling for!

    They don't want to defund the police. They are going to extremes so they can get closer to their goals.

    This strategy was used during the oil embargo. Word was bread was going to go to $3.00 a loaf. It only went to $2.50 and people were relieved.

    We were paying less than $1.00 before that.

    I've been trying to defund the police in my township for decades by voting no on their damn millage increases every flipping year. All they do is harass residents here and act as a clean up crew. No crimes are stopped just reports taken. I don't need no police to protect me or to keep climbing in my wallet.

    This happened once upon a long time ago in Boston https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Police_Strike

    It did not go well at all

    I think defunding should take place at the city/county/state level where desired.

    So with that statement, Commmifornia and the peoples republics of NJ, MA, ILL, NY, etc can defund the police as they wish with the caveat that If and when the SHTF there will be zero federal government assistance.

    What specifically intrigued me about this concept is in the liberal enclaves of LA, SF and NYC and how the “peaceful “ protesters will then move to the liberal progressive gated communities. The defunded police will not answer calls when the protesters invade the liberals that voted for the policies that resulted in this situation.

    Basically, the left destroying the rich left.

    This is what I’ll be doing.

    Defunding the police as presented is a bad idea. I think proper allocation of funding would be appropriate. Some time things like armored vehicles are grant’s specifically for that purpose only. So use it or loose it. Better and improved training. Some of the local cops in rural areas have atrocious pay. Making sure you attract and retain quality people would be a priority. That means washing out those that show they can not handle the job in training or on the streets. It does take funding but wise appropriations of public funds that will Improve quality. JMHO.
