Did i say that?
It would probably end up about the same, not the end of the world that righties claim it would be.
So expend already diminished resources to "end up about the same"

It would end up the same. Why waste the time and effort and cost. The whole idea is dumb.

I don't think that a rethink of how we do things is necessarily dumb.

So, they want to replace the police department with a new dept of public safety. OMFG its the end of the world!!!!!!!
πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

In the first six months of health care professionals replacing police officers in Denver, no one they encountered was arrested

A young program that puts troubled nonviolent people in the hands of health care workers instead of police officers has proven successful in its first six months, according to a progress report. STAR represents a more empathetic approach to policing that keeps people out of an often-cyclical criminal justice system by connecting people with services like shelter, food aid, counseling, and medication. The program also deliberately cuts down on encounters between uniformed officers and civilians.

Since June 1, 2020, a mental health clinician and a paramedic have traveled around the city in a white van handling low-level incidents, like trespassing and mental health episodes, that would have otherwise fallen to patrol officers with badges and guns. In its first six months, the Support Team Assisted Response program, or STAR, has responded to 748 incidents. None required police or led to arrests or jail time.

The civilian team handled close to six incidents a day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, in high-demand neighborhoods. STAR does not yet have enough people or vans to respond to every nonviolent incident, but about 3 percent of calls for DPD service, or over 2,500 incidents, were worthy of the alternative approach, according to the report.

Chief Pazen is thrilled with the success of STAR, but the time and money it saves will go toward fighting crime, he said.

For Pazen, transferring low-level calls to civilian teams is not about reallocating money. It’s about solving two problems at once: getting harmless residents the help they need while letting police focus on other things.

β€œI want the police department to focus on police issues,” Pazen said.
β€œWe have more than enough work with regards to violent crime, property crime and traffic safety, and if something like STAR or any other support system can lighten the load on mental health calls for service, substance abuse calls for service, and low-level issues, that frees up law enforcement to address crime issues.”

That's because it doesn't fit into his right wing extremist view of the world. Guys like him will live their entire lives objecting to change of any kind and never making a positive contribution to the world around them. It's a complete waste of time to engage him in discussing any serious subject.

Why do this? Really, it is pathetic.

That quote of mine you just just quoted was in response to this idea:
So, they want to replace the police department with a new dept of public safety. OMFG its the end of the world!!!!!!!
πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„
After even you said this...
Did i say that?

Now, in regards to THIS story of sending social workers in place of police you can count me skeptical, yes. I just had an exchange with JTF on this topic when he posted this info in regards to how I’m not sure β€œzero arrests” should be the goal (or a good thing). Further, if you keep sending unarmed people to β€œtrespassing” situations I am willing to bet my savings the 0% violence stat doesn’t hold up.

Minneapolis is sadly becoming the new Detroit. There is a reason only 20% of police officers live in the city. The mayor & city council are far left extremists who do not have the values of the average working family. How did it get so bad? what went wrong? do we need to keep a closer eye on our public schools? why won't the teachers show their curriculum what are they hiding?

80% of the crimes are committed by 20% of the people lets eliminate the 20%, problem solved.
Why does the USA have so much more crime and also have WAY more people in jail than pretty much any country in the world. It seems obvious to me that we are doing something wrong.

What is your explanation?

The systematic breakdown of the family. The races, cultures with poor family values have high criminal activity.

This is all completely wrong. But I would like to know which cultures or races you believe have poor family values.

People in the US have no morals and feel entitled to do whatever they want.
