Seriously, one good inner city electrical black out would show the need for police.
HeadSet saysSeriously, one good inner city electrical black out would show the need for police.Because police enforcement in the inner cities is currently a deterrent to crime???
but I was referring to the extreme looting that occurred during that famous NYC blackout
Limousine liberals will be the first to be robbed, raped, and murdered by the dregs of society they created.
libs want to abolish the police
subversion and pandertarding.
:Hircus sayslibs want to abolish the policeNow tha'ts some serious fake News. Faux News.
The latest call to action from some criminal-justice activists: “Abolish the police.” From the streets of Chicago to the city council of Seattle, and in the pages of academic journals ranging from the Cardozo Law Review to the Harvard Law Review and of mainstream publications from the Boston Review to Rolling Stone, advocates and activists are building a case not just to reform policing—viewed as an oppressive, violent, and racist institution—but to do away with it altogether. When I first heard this slogan, I assumed that it was a figure of speech, used to legitimize more expansive criminal-justice reform. But after reading the academic and activist literature, I realized that “abolish the police” is a concrete policy goal. The abolitionists want to dismantle municipal police departments and see “police officers disappearing from the streets.”
Until now, that project has set its sights on abolishing the death penalty and mass incarceration. This Article is the first in legal scholarship to seriously imagine abolishing criminal law enforcement as we know it within that larger democratic-abolitionist framework; rather than a negative vision of abolition (i.e. fire all cops), we support the creation of new non-police institutions empowered to supersede the police monopoly on violence reduction. In so doing, we reflect on the structural engines behind the cycles of violence that police are exclusively empowered to combat, and highlight and analyze the parallel work of non-state actors in breaking those cycles. From epidemiologists to community activists to incarcerated individuals, numerous democratic-abolitionist institutions dependent on the non-involvement of the police have taken root in violence-prone communities. Such initiatives hold the potential to empower communities to police themselves. With institutional support from scholars, activists, and policymakers, non-police anti-violence workers can make police obsolete.
Levels of violent crime may be declining generally, but shootings related to gang feuds, police interventions, and illicit economies continue to bring suffering to some of the most vulnerable and marginalized communities in the country—communities where Black and Brown youth become indoctrinated into a culture of violence at a young age, often by the very police officers charged with protecting them. Incarceration is expected of the young people growing up in these communities, and we have discussed throughout this Article the ways in which the logic underlying the mass incarceration apparatus has its roots in racism. Imprisonment and punishment, then, is not only an ineffective way to reduce violence; it is illegitimate.
But this hierarchy of violence is embedded with a long history of racist beliefs in White supremacy and Black and Brown immorality or amorality dating back to the era of slavery and European colonial conquest.24 It is not uncommon to hear people who have been convicted of violent crimes referred to as “animals” or “super-predators,”25 evoking images of lawless, subhuman people of color threatening the safety and stability of middle-class life. President Donald Trump espoused this view in a speech to law enforcement officials, urging them to be “rough” with people suspected of criminal activity. Speaking of Mexican and Central American immigrants presumed to belong to the MS-13 gang, Trump expounded:"They butcher those little girls. They kidnap, they extort, they rape and they rob. They prey on children. They shouldn’t be here. They stomp on their victims. They beat them with clubs. They slash them with machetes, and they stab them with knives. They have transformed peaceful parks and beautiful, quiet neighborhoods into bloodstained killing fields. They’re animals."Comparing a racially coded group of human beings to animals is dehumanizing, and dehumanization has observable consequencesNumerous psychological studies have linked the dehumanization of Black people with increased estimates of Black children’s ages and criminal culpability; dehumanization ...
The man, whose name has not been released, was at a Starbucks on Mountain Boulevard in Oakland, California, on the morning of New Year's Eve, according to statements from the Oakland Police Department.While he was working, the suspect approached him around 11:30 a.m., grabbed his laptop and ran, the statement said.The man rushed after the thief in an attempt to retrieve his computer but suffered a critical head injury as the suspect fled in a car, the police told CNN.
https://news.yahoo.com/calls-growing-abolish-police-cities-140248927.html They say we don't need police. If we had true equality, there would be zero crime and thus no need for police.
With armed citizenry, we would need very little if any police.
rd6B saysWith armed citizenry, we would need very little if any police.Except when they protect the criminals and sue you and prosecute you for defending yourself, which is the way it is going. If you could make up your own protection and punish/dissuade the criminals at the time they commit the acts, that would be one thing. But when you do that, and the criminal has rights and exemptions but you don't, it is quite another. They are abdicating the protection of citizens and their property rights, while going after citizens for protecting themselves. AND they want to remove anything that allows citizens either to protect themselves or mount a true protest.....
Yes, San Francisco is fruit loops nutty. That doesn't generalize to all or most democrats.
when right wingers generalize what a marxist says to all people on the left and moderate left.
