    No police = Free Raid, Free Riot, and no one to stop them but let bystander to watch

    That’s what I think if there’s no police

    I live in Eugene near an area where Cahoots gets many of its calls
    They are a wonderful organization they coordinate with the Eugene police and white bird (a group that offers free medical and dental assistance to the under privileged)
    And we have an organization called Community Supported Shelters that builds micro living community’s for the unhoused
    These are models that should be considered in the reallocation of police funds in all American cities

    Protecting homeless people from Karens? These heroes need more funding!

    Defunding the police is a radical idea. These channels sugarcoat it in extreme ways to make it seem reasonable. They want to replace a centrally governed policing system with a patchwork of different organisations with different outlooks on how to deal with cases. Furthermore, it completely excuses the fact that millions of people work in the police department and defunding it will lead to an unemployment crisis where there won’t be an efficient system to deal with a volatile country. I agree that the police has failed a lot of times and a few reforms are necessary but defunding is an extreme way to answer a problem. Most BLM protestors who support defunding police are advocating it such that there is no justice system to stop their vandalism.

    Harvard did a study, first in 128 police jurisdictions and then in over 1000 globally and found one definitive fact, The Police Don’t Prevent Crime. Not at all, if anything they increase and encourage crime and escalate force used in crimes.

    When you get a Karen, call the cops, let them murder them in broad daylight. It’ll stop happening after the first YouTube video.

    I picture kkkops disguised as gang members (like in Chicago) ramping up crime to undermine groups like these to spite the defunding.

    THERE IS A TRAINING PROGRAM THAT TEACHES OFFICERS HOW TO RESPOND TO A MENTAL HEALTH EMERGENCY.. IT IS OPTIONAL AND MOST DEPARTMENTS CHOOSE NOT TO DO THE PROGRAM BECAUSE THE STATE WANTS TO SAVE MONEY.. COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS AND GENERAL IGNORANCE ABOUT HOW TO RESPOND TO A MENTAL HEALTH EMERGENCY COSTS MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE THEIR LIVES.. THE ASSUMPTION THAT PEOPLE “CHOOSE” TO BE ILL AND NOT GET HELP CAUSES PEOPLE TO TURN AWAY AND NOT GET HELP FOR THEM.. THERE IS NO CONSENT TO BECOMING ILL NOR WOULD THAT PERSON CONSENT TO THEIR BEHAVIOR ONCE THEY WERE COMPLETELY RECOVERED… THE LACK OF MENTAL HEALTH EMERGENCY RESPONSE IN SOCIETY IS A CRISIS.. THERE IS JUST AS MUCH AS A SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY TO RESPOND WHEN SOMEONE IN UNCONSCIOUS AS THERE IS WHEN SOMEONE IS IN A MENTAL HEALTH EMERGENCY.. SOMEONE EXPERIENCING ANY KIND OF SEVERE BRAIN DISFUNCTION CANNOT BE SIMPLY EXPECTED TO GET THEMSELVES TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM.

    So if it’s been 30 years and there are still problems on the streets, either they don’t work that great or people really are screwed up. I think it’s the latter.

    Too bad that the people who don’t understand what “defund the police” actually means will ever watch this. And I really think it was a poor choice of words…Perhaps it should’ve been additional civilian support?!

    Why haven’t we ever heard of Cahoots?

    We don’t have to give them 90 million, we could give them 10 million and spend the rest on education, helping homeless and disenfranchised people get what they need to not be homeless or disenfranchised. The average cost per precinct the police cost is 100 million dollars. The cheapest is 70 million, it why rural communities only have sheriffs. NYC costs over a billion dollars per year. Crisis units cost a tenth as much and do 90% of the police’s job.

    Imagine how great it’d be if they quantified the percentage of homeless people helping and Karen-dealing situatios
