Here’s an idea: eliminate quotas. Make it so that there is no financial incentive (or any kind of incentive) for arresting or ticketing more people. Make these quotas banned by law, everywhere.

Maybe that will encourage police to focus on real crimes, without having to defund them.

I’m concerned about police defunding resulting in demoralization and making them even worse.

Martial Law, maybe the UN. Or else each man for himself. Best be prepared. I’ve got my application in for concealed carry and I’ve got my gun. I hate that I feel I may need to take it with me when I bring me kids to a playground, in the future. I hope not.

Better pray the police don’t get refunded in your area. Truck drivers are considering not making stops in areas without adequate police protection. Can’t say I blame them. 

Think: No trucks to deliver to grocery stores, gas stations, home improvement stores, Wal-Mart, restaurants, etc. in your town. Everything in your home probably came on a truck unless you’re mostly self-sufficient. Forget deliveries of good purchased online, either. Are people thinking about this?

There were signs outside that “community” in Seattle with a list of stuff they needed. Um no. You can’t have it both ways.

There were shootings in the Seattle’s autonomous  zone CHOP. I dead and 1 critical. The police were faced with hostile guards on the border and had a hard time getting in to deal with it.

Another shooting and a rape in Seattle’s autonomous zone (CHOP) has caused the delusional Mayor to move to dismantle this  horror show.

14 children including 2 three year olds have been shot across the country. Caught in the crossfire of gang activity emboldened by weakened police departments. Where’s the outcry for these babies?

Isn’t that the President’s turf? Let’s see how he handles an autonomous zone trying to set up shop near his front lawn.

It’s tricky. Washington D.C. is a Democratic Mayor who has been saying we don’t need federal troops. They’re pulling down an Andrew Jackson statue.

My housemate told me a friend of hers said that police in Atlanta are refusing to respond to 911 calls. They just sit there and let the calls go unanswered.

Yes, the DA charged the police officers of murder in a death penalty state without a complete investigation  or convening the Grand Jury. Coupled with the calls to defund them, I guess their saying ok do it yourselves. Get those social workers out there.

Another shooting in Seattle’s autonomous zone. 5 shootings, 2 deaths, 1 rape. That’s what happens when the police are told to leave. The mayor is STILL dithering about shutting this down. She is cutting the police budget though lol
