Below is an article (Reuters) on what defunding the police would look like. In my opinion it falls way short of the issues it will further cause not solve. I’m sure I will have more to say about this ridiculous idea as time goes by. Anything Jane (Hanoi) Fonda supports can not be good. Below (beneath the link) are just a few off the cuff thoughts on what we’d really face with basically a reduced or eliminated police/law enforcement system. If you take away funds………nobody works for nothing; except vigilantes.
No funding: 1) Means something previously funded no longer exists, unless of course it is now done privately. So, law enforcement companies? That will not stop the existence of a dirty cop. Probably makes it worse. 2) Self policing: I already have the right to protect myself and property. So, without a police force, there is no one left to come and arrest the burglar breaking in or vandalizing our neighborhood. So, is each neighborhood/subdivision to have its own security force? Okay, then we need more guns (weapons), because the criminals will be armed. GUN SHOPS, PLEASE STOCK UP, THERE WILL BE A RUN TO PURCHASE MORE GUNS. THE LEFT CAN THROW OUT ANY THOUGHT OF TAKING OUR GUNS AWAY (besides there is no one left to enforce even that). 3) When we self arrest a thief in the neighborhood where do we take him/her, there won’t be a police department (without funding there is no department), no jails? Which also, means no courts? Courts would only be needed for civil cases. Does the neighborhood vigilantes (which is what we really become) just shoot on site these law breakers? Do we just hang them, lynch them? Back to the wild wild west! Does the Left think that eliminating funding/eliminating police means that no one is any longer guilty of breaking any laws? Are they really trying to make a lawless society acceptable?
People like John Legend and Jane Fonda don’t really think things out. Attention seekers shoot their mouths off and have no solution or really any alternatives. These jokers don’t even live in the real world.
This idea of defunding the police may be the single most idiotic thing from the Left to this point. They get more ridiculous by the moment.
4) How many thousands (millions) of police officers would suddenly become unemployed. No funding, no police! I want to see this idea work in New York City.
5) Crime, every crime………. increases dramatically. Looting can only be stopped by self-policing. I am actually kind of okay with that. I’ll need more shells for my shotgun! There won’t be anyone to come and take me when I blow a hole in someones stomach for breaking into my house or car. Hopefully we don’t defund the ambulance district when they come and get the body.
My thoughts don’t end here, I’m just getting started. This may be a daily rant. What do you say Joe?
