Ignorance In Politics

THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END! The headlines read:

At Least 11 Cities Are Defunding Their Police Departments

Did anyone vote these people into office? I’ll bet they get voted out of office fairly soon. Does it seem to you that we are in a Batman script in which the criminal masterminds are all at a meeting discussing how to eliminate interference by police as they rob and pillage.

Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Washington DC, Baltimore, Portland,  Philadelphia; Hartford, Conn.; Norman, Oklahoma; and Salt Lake City all have cut millions from their Law Enforcement budgets and reduced the amount of officers to be employed. I hate to say this, but are you people stuck on stupid, or what?

Allow me to explain the ignorance of our political and government leaders. First, there is no data to support any claims of racism by police. There is no data that supports the claims that Blacks are treated more poorly and killed more by police than the other races. The claim that Blacks make up about 13 percent of the US population but are killed by police more often than anyone else is a misrepresentation of the data. Blacks make up about 13 percent of the US Population, but only have a significant amount of people living in about 12 states, in which Blacks are from 23 to 65 percent of the population. And in these States, Whites are still killed almost twice as much as Blacks by police. Go ahead, do the research.

Now let’s add the rest of the game in play. The death of George Floyd was unfortunate, and un-necessary. But, for every George Floyd death a person of another race has reached the same demise. The facts are simple . . . Everybody gets treated like shit by the police. Add a racial organization to the game and you have three women of questionable integrity that just made millions in donations, based entirely on lies. And now . . . these same lies are being used to defund our police.

Frankly, I am disgusted. You don’t think there was a more intelligent way to handle this? For ONE, de-funding is stupid. Provision of additional funding to provide additional training to the community teaching them how to comply with police instead of getting hurt would be a better alternative. I cannot think of a single time that I have seen police put a man on the ground to restrain him, that wasn’t due to the persons resisting. Spend money teaching people to quit resisting could be another alternative.
