Yours is another idea, pipo - but not one that I have seen any rational person advocate up to this point.pipoz4444 wrote: ↑June 14, 2020, 5:40 pmMaybe the answer is simple??
In all the Cities where people voice their dislike or objection to police and propose “De-funding”, why not give the People what they want.
Send all the police on 2 months leave. I mean All the Police. i.e. no Response to Emergency of Crime Call from the Public or anyone for that matter, no Effort to prevent Crimes, no Attendance at Crimes being Committed, no Attendance at Vehicle or any other Accidents, no attendance at Crime scenes after the Event, no helping Pick up the dead bodies in the street after Murders and finally no Helping protect the Politicians and other Dignitaries, etc.. just lock up the Precinct buildings and send them on Leave.
Then let’s all come back in two month's time and see what those places are like, then ask the people to vote in a city referendum. Either you will have Peace without Police or you have Anarchy or you have somewhere in between. Either way the people of that City as a whole can then decide, their future
As for all the Politicians on the Hill, now advocating total “De-funding” of the Police, I would suggest the Police start by blocking their Phone Numbers and then take away all that the personal protection, that many of them enjoy at the taxpayers expense. Simply let them let the Politicians take care of themselves. Problem solved and saves tax payer money, to be used elsewhere. Maybe then they will remember 1998 and the two that died that day (Jacob Chestnut & John Gibson)
See, told you it was "Simple".
By the way, I am in no condoning what some of these Police have done, but to go from one extreme to another won't solve it.
You could almost describe it as anarchist.
