When they say 'defund the police', is it just possible that this is what they mean?



Mental Health Response Teams Yield Better Outcomes Than Police In NYC, Data Shows

A New York City pilot program that dispatches mental health specialists and paramedics instead of police for certain nonviolent emergency calls has resulted in more people accepting assistance and fewer people sent to the hospital, early data shows.

It's one of a number of programs underway around the country trying to address police violence and systemic racism following George Floyd's murder by providing alternatives to sending law enforcement to respond to emergency calls involving issues such as mental health or drug and alcohol crises.

If Tuckems didn't want US natsec folks wondering who the unknown - masked - person, swept up in conversations with shady Russians was, well, maybe Tukems shouldn't have been in conversation with shady Russians in the first place.

The folks requesting unmasking... and I can't stress this enough... *don't know* who they'll be unmasking.

How is this so hard for y'all to understand?

Have to say, watching Tucker's fluffers trying to paint this as anything other than what your own eyes and ears tell you it was, is just glorious.

No, this is the actual meaning of defund the police:

Just the standard name calling if you have nothing. Lol.

I would say racist and stupid.
That is quite surprising from you. Kudos.

Is this going to become a regular thing from you, where you call out racist and stupid posts?

I, for one, welcome the new liberal rietrot.

Carlson would never have known about it if people who had access to the unmasked information didn't start leaking it to others for political purposes. This is a crime, and so I would say Carlson has a good reason to be upset over the way his rights have been violated.

I'm guessing this violation doesn't disturb you, though?
