According to draft language posted online, the amendment would replace the department with a Department of Community Safety and Violence Prevention, “which will have responsibility for public safety services prioritizing a holistic, public health-oriented approach.”

The amendment goes on to say the director of the new agency would have “non-law-enforcement experience in community safety services, including but not limited to public health and/or restorative justice approaches.” It also provides for a division of licensed peace officers who would answer to the department’s director.

That sounds like police reform, but with more steps.

You don't get rid of the apple farm because of a few bad apples. You get rid of the bad apples.

Edit: and here comes anarchy for this town.

makes me think of those 80s futuristic movies. chaos in a once normal city now fenced off etc.

but now, typically, the ones that caused this will not like what they get and move away, then rally for the same thing in their new homes. rinse repeat.

One step closer to The Purge. That's what they want right?

Let me guess, a bunch of Democrats made this decision right.
Talk about a knee-jerk reaction to dismantling a part of municipality that is critical to a society functioning properly.

From the article:
The 12-0 vote is just the first step in a process that faces significant bureaucratic obstacles to make the November ballot, where the city’s voters would have the final say. And it came amid a spate of recent shootings in Minnesota’s largest city that have heightened many citizens’ concerns about talk of dismantling the department.

So predictions... a rise in shootings, a rise in murders, a rise in theft, a rise in muggings and a general rise in crime.

The phrase is actually 'a few bad apples spoil the barrel.' :rolleyes: sometimes you have to throw out the whole barrel, if the rot has been left too long.


Highlight from the video:
"The phrase is 'a few bad apples spoil the barrel.' And we currently have a system which is set up to ignore bad apples, destroy bad apples' records, persecute good apples for speaking up and shuffle dangerous, emotionally unstable apples around to the point that children have to attend ****ing apple classes. You cannot look at our current situation and claim that anybody likes them apples."

That hasn't worked for a very long time clearly, black continue to suffer hence this more drastic approach.

Not really. If you take your orange hero's advice you just don't count incidents of crime, then they didn't happen

So if a tiny minority of Muslims commit terrorism, can the US throw out the whole barrel? ;) Oh right that is bad collectivism. You only stand for good collectivism AMIRIGHT?

You can do the most murderous things with collectivist arguments like this bad apples analogy.


Funny though, the anarchist in me almost wants delusional leftists to get rid of the police. Because guess who will protect the rights of criminals? No-one.

If some peaceful BLM protestor sets fire to someone's shop, guess who won't be there to stop that shop owner from euthanising them?

That's literally what idiot leftists are saying though...

They want less proactive policing so that there are less police interactions. AKA stop looking for crime, and there won't be any.

Trump must be a leftist idiot then with his statement on Covid 19 testing. Or "Kung Flu" as he calls it.

Do you enjoy arguing with yourself? Are you lonely?

* Looks at thread title...looks at posts in thread...looks at article...doesn't see / find any mention of trump or covid-19, anywhere except this post *

Ah yes...for a second there I forgot how this works:
1. Change thread to something about "trump" and / or "covid-19"
2. Hope someone takes the bait
2. Proceed with "Orangeman Bad!!11!21!"

You're hoping and praying to divert attention away from the failures of the democrat run cities with a dash of "trump" and sprinkle of "covid," aren't you?
:D

(Don't worry, someone will be along shortly and probably fall for it ;) )
