...have a 'free' run in the streets. Lootings, robbery, assaults, etc.

Create a sense of terror in the average citizen. Until they beg for more police (or national guard) protection.


It could backfire tho, if people get fed-up and start purging the scumbags.

After the Watts Riots, when people would complain about police brutality, cops would not respond to calls for days at a time, especially on the weekend. They were even bold enough to admit that they were doing it on purpose.

or if grassroots community activism, poverty prevention programs, free preschool, community feeding...i.e. Black radical shit goes down locally, then there are less "scumbags" roaming the streets

if everyone has what they need and/or has access to it, it lessens folks feeling like they need to take shit or harm others. More resources should go toward that and less will be needed for police

the community transformation has to be able to start somewhere and it will take years to fix, but its worth it down the line...people oftentimes don't have the patience or courage to try something different.

all they know. So words typed on a message board or some food drives in the hood won’t change that. The Panthers tried it in the 60’s in certain areas until the government infiltrated and the results were mixed at best up until then.

Crime in 2020 is at a completely different level, the criminals are at a different level, their weapons are at a different level, the money and the people involved are at a different level.

You’re not going to fight that with “community activism”. Big money has to be invested. Neighborhoods have to be completely changed. Certain folks have to be forced OUT. All gentrification isn’t bad.

they never get fired and charged so quickly. so they're mad. now you want due process? oh well.

this could easily be seen as 'oh we can't shoot these niggaz no more?' I"m out.

'easy' fix.....stop killing us.

Y'all buy those labels, I was born supreme

My cousin is a CO and I'm trying to sort through his FB posts to see why he's so adamant to support this in light of all that's happened recently.

and align themselves with them.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

as middle class workers over the years. Discussions of police abolition and defunding the cops threatens this position.
