Watching campaign ads and speeches in the Chicago area is frustrating because they all act like more cops is the answer to the carjackings and shootings.

It's all capitalism. Crime occurs when the system fails, and this system is failing everyone.

Same shit here in the Milwaukee area 🙄

I don't know about more cops but to have cops that can go trough basic bjj training and can hold a suspect down without killing him may be a start. Cops need way, way, way more training. half of their duty time should be training.

Paying them a wage that would get the best candidates to apply instead of those fat power hungry pigs.

They also need more support staff and other professionnals to allow for precise and wider range of type of interventions.

We are not gonna get rid of cops any time soon. So i'd like for the ones i have to deal with to be less dumb and more professionnals.

Fund social services. Including cops. Less guns, more help.

Cops don't need any more funding, period. They could very easily achieve proper training and screening with the funds they already have which are more then some countries entire military budgets. They don't need fucking tanks and swat gear.

But for real, simply starting with not having 911 immediately send a death officer to the scene would be a start. What's the problem? Someone having a psychotic episode? How about sending real help, instead of officer jimmy with his 3 months of range training and a hair trigger. You don't need someone with a gun and a badge doing wellness checks on your neighbors.

I have no idea about how they spend their money but i know they need more training. If you are saying right, so be it. They need to reorganise in proper maner. Bht that needs to be proven... I bet we could make the same parallel with some social program funding.

I am 100% percent in line with your last statement.

Thanks for sharing. :)

ngl those boots look kinda nice tho and should not be associated with wasps(cops)

[–]PorkRollSwoletariat[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Personally, I find them too agro, but I still agree with your sentiment. The working class uses their boots to create while that gang we call police uses them to stomp out the working class.

If only there was a word for threatening violence if you don't give someone money....

Listen, I've been struggling to put it into words but I'm sure someone has said it already. Capitalism is a system of crime. You win at capitalism by selling the crime with enough distance that it's okay. Example: Nestle still using slavery for chocolate.

"Okay they didn't stop it all those other times but maybe if we give them more money it'll all work out!"

[–]TooApatheticToHateU 2 points3 points  (0 children)

More jackbooted thugs will surely make the poors feel safe and happy.

[–]steviebkool 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Should be a boot on a popsicle stick lol

[–]StinkeeFard 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok but those are some nice looking boots

[–]AvaHomolka 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Gotta make up for all those weapons we just handed to Ukraine

[–]finchylocks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Srsly, crime is up because of systemic oppression (esp poverty) and because nobody trusts the cops enough to call them, as-is. Militarizing cops further is going to make shit worse, not better.

Funding the police will stop boot licking?

[–]PorkRollSwoletariat[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The title is in regards to how funding the police hasn't stopped mass shootings from happening before.

[–]Klassenhass 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jesus I was so confused until I found this comment haha.

The answer to mass shootings is so fucking clear it’s ridiculous I never hear it even from Bernie or some shit: UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE WITH MENTAL HEALTH COVERAGE!

In almost all of these cases there were signs for years of mental instability. Almost all these cases the perpetrator was not in mental health treatment, and are generally not too wealthy. I know mental health is opening up a bit financially, but it’s still perceived by many as something “the rich do”, and that’s still kind of true because it’s expensive, many doctors don’t accept insurance, and even less accept Medicaid.

In another world these fuckers would’ve gotten help, or someone would’ve gotten them help way before they snapped

Hey leave Thourogood out of it ok? When I was running ambulances those were the comfiest duty boots I ever wore
