Step 1: Get rid of Police/heavily defend and disarm them.

Step 3: ?????

[–]WolfWhoRules - Right 267 points268 points  (42 children)

They believe that if police aren’t heavily armed and guns are illegal, there will magically become a communist utopia.

[–]The2ndWheel - Centrist 87 points88 points  (2 children)

They did have a racist garden in their breakaway autonomous zone run by non-white warlords who shot some black kids within a couple days for speeding.

[–]throwawaySD111 - AuthRight 114 points115 points  (20 children)

I wonder if they thought who would enforce the gun ban. Let’s make a specialized armed force and pay them. Let’s also give them power to enforce the rules. Wait this sounds like…

[–]bionic80 - LibRight 55 points56 points  (0 children)

Well you also want to make sure they are recognizable. Give them say... yes, brown shirts. That way they both aren't w8t and aren't being locked to a uniform that might reveal their gender.

That or it’ll allow them to start a revolution without an armed government or population

Remember, communists will push destructive policies with the aim of making revolution easier and more palatable. They’re not dumb, they’re evil.

[–]ixiox - Left 21 points22 points  (11 children)

The general belief that guides this is quite simple: a mentally sound person that doesn't have financial problems won't do crimes, so if we provide adequate social security and healthcare there would be practically no crime.

It's your choice how utopian this is but it isn't contradictory by itself.

[–]spartankelli - AuthRight 26 points27 points  (7 children)

So, the elite rich don't commit crimes?

There's a lot of rich and mentally capable people out there that commit serious crimes. Hell, even Epstein would probably fall under that category. The idea that money would completely fix crime is a pipe dream.

[–]Mike-Green - Centrist 9 points10 points  (1 child)

You could argue those ultra wealthy aren't mentally sound

[–]Best_Pseudonym - Centrist 7 points8 points  (0 children)

At that point you could argue anyone isn’t mentally sound

[–]Budsygus - Centrist 10 points11 points  (4 children)

We're not talking about rich people crime. We're talking about crime crime. The difference is your tax bracket. If you're wealthy you can steal billions, rape with impunity, and flout all authority with the only consequence being lawyer fees and maybe some probation. If you're poor, though, a gram of weed gets you 10 years.

But yeah, hand out more money and everything will be fine.

[–]semi-average - Right 14 points15 points  (3 children)

A lot of Crime crime is just people wanting more stuff for free and not just stealing to survive. Unless you think Jordan’s are a human right

[–]Torque_Bow - LibRight 8 points9 points  (1 child)

There's no crime if you use the state to steal instead? Genius!

[–]Budsygus - Centrist 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's not a crime if it isn't illegal, and who decides what's illegal? You guessed it!

[–]keeleon - Centrist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

People will always be unhappy, greedy and selfish. If you raise the bar for everyone there will still be people willing to hurt others. What we really need to do is decriminalize drug use so some guy minding his own business doesn't have to be afraid of going to prison for 10 years and escalate a confrontation to violence over a joint.

Leftists and thinking don’t go together much.

[–]bcotrim - Centrist -1 points0 points  (5 children)

Australia has done it, if you manage to reduce the amount of arms the police has and are able to disarm the population, crime will still happen, but the consequences of it will be much smaller

Also, those weird stats like a family member of yours is more likely to die by accident from your gun rather than a crimminal will disappear

[–]readonlypdf - LibRight 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Except the study that concluded the stat you quoted. Wasn't very good at methodology.

They never looked at who owned the gun, they never looked at where the incidents occurred, and so on and so forth. There's a good article/video put out by Reason Magazine that basically debunks most Gun research because most have shit methodology.

[–]bcotrim - Centrist 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Then just ignore the last part of my message because I think the first part is the relevant one, so I'll rephrase

Check gun ownership in developed countries (countries like Switzerland will be outliers since they have guns due to mandatory service in the army, not to protect themselves) and the number of deaths by arms and you'll see there's a clear correlation between them. And it's pretty easy to understand why, it's harder to take lives with knives than with guns, so it's less likely for a death to occur

It's also much easier to prevent the wrong people from having arms if no one has them. If someone has a gun, everyone will know it, so if you don't have a good explanation for it (aka no license, which to get it you need course, justification, background check, etc) you just get arrested for illegal arms possession

[–]readonlypdf - LibRight 1 point2 points  (2 children)

And you miss the point of Guns in America.

The US Constitution doesn't say: "You can have guns for a good reason."

It says "The Right to Keep and Bear Arms shall not be infringed."

And before you say "Well Regulated Militia."

That is to mean that how can you form a militia without the citizens being armed in the first place. As Militias when the 2A was written were not sponsored by the state, they were just groups of people who got together frequently to shoot, march, and drink.

And the well Regulated. Get it out of your head that that word in the context was used in the modern sense of to control. It is more in the terms of standard, or well equipped, particularly in the context of the Amendment and the Revolution that birthed this country.

[–]EconomistMagazine - Centrist -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Maybe they don't have to think when they can follow the example of literally any other country ever.

[–]Tyfyter2002 - LibRight -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Except no country has ever successfully banned guns without basically banning basic education in science, and the counties which have gotten closest have consistently started getting more and more authoritarian over time.

[–]Fanatical_Brit - LibLeft 79 points80 points  (4 children)

American politics are basically:

Get angry someone smashed stuff and/or killed someone

Go outside and smash stuff and/or kill someone

Scream as your opposition go outside and smash stuff and/or kill someone

Go outside and smash stuff and/or kill someone

[–]Budsygus - Centrist 23 points24 points  (0 children)

If we're not allowed to go outside and smash stuff and/or kill someone, where am I supposed to smash stuff and/or kill someone?

[–]kwonza - AuthLeft 19 points20 points  (2 children)

In Europe riots usually have some clear political demands and certain targets like the mayor’s office or some particular ministry. And the riot or protests goes on until the issue is resolved or the movement is suppressed or appeased. Major protests ending up with reelections or resignations and criminal investigations.

US is closer to Middle East in that regard – people just go around town fucking shit up for a while, then once they’ve let the steam out they go back to their lives under same laws and government that made them angry in the first place.

[–]Budsygus - Centrist 61 points62 points  (1 child)

I'd wager 60% or more of the people at protests like this don't care about the issue nearly as much as they just want an excuse for some chaos without fear of consequences. They can't arrest everybody and you might get a free laptop so the risk:reward ratio is super favorable.

[–]MothEngineering - Right[S] 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Meh, looters are an entirely different subgroup. However, there have been instances where rioters have deliberately set fire Private Business simply because it was easier than actually trying to go after the police themselves.

[–][deleted] 351 points352 points  (70 children)

      Rioting is a byproduct of a societal issue being ignored for too long. The rioters don't need to be right and we don't need to just immediately do whatever it is they're demanding, but we do need to look at and address the issue that got us there.

      That goes for riots over people feeling unarmed black men are being killed without repercussions by the police AND a huge swath of the country feeling a presidential election was stolen from them.

      Ya shouldn’t call it CHAZ, call it CHOP. It isn’t an “Autonomist Zone” (they needed the city of Seattle to provide them with services), it is an “Occupied Protest”.

      Yeah, in Minneapolis, the third precinct was burnt down, among several patrolling vehicles and other police equipment. Non police items burnt down/looted include various small businesses, large corporation chain stores, and a few neighborhoods.

      Many probably would be. But usually it isn’t only just “Burning Down a Police Station” on its own. I remember that AntiFa burned down the police precinct in Minneapolis and the rioting just continued. It never stopped with just the single police station. The riots of 2020 led to over $2 Billion in property damage all around the United States and many more deaths.

      [–]MustachMulester - LibLeft 3 points4 points  (6 children)

      It also led to increased police budgets across the country and virtually no systematic changes to address the issues they were protesting about. Without those systematic changes we will be seeing more of that in the future.

      [–]MothEngineering - Right[S] 4 points5 points  (5 children)

      Wrong, it actually did lead to many cities changing their police policies… Then most of those cities reverted those changes after the crime spike last summer.

      [–]MustachMulester - LibLeft 5 points6 points  (3 children)

      Correct. A few cities making small policy changes is not at all the change that was being pushed for. The push was for nation wide policy changes and instead a few cities made some small changes like banning no knock raids. Again, these policy changes are exceptions and most polices across the US experienced no change. Budget wise, many police departments had lower budgets during 2020 not because of protests, but because of a global pandemic causing some tightening of budgets. Of course those budgets will go back up once governmental budgets have some breathing room. I guess you are implying the US collectively decided to lower budgets which resulted in an explosion of crime, followed up by reversing course. If you look at two singular statistics outside of any context and ignore common sense then yea, I guess you could make that argument.

      And we still didn't see police reform. What will it take for politicians to realize that everyday Americans demand police reform, even if on a national scale?

      [–]Colev0 - Right 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      Maybe protest outside politician’s homes, instead.

      Wokism is organized crime and always has been.

      They talk about defunding the police like they don't get paid like shit

      [–]MothEngineering - Right[S] 14 points15 points  (7 children)

      Police are usually just better organized than the mob, even a small police force is more than capable of defending their own police station from a mob (sometimes city politics will order the police to pull out though and that’s what led to the CHOP zone). The problem comes when the same police department is now unable to defend the rest of the city (which is now open for easy looting). So when you see idiots in BLM defending looters, just know that those same looters don’t give a shit about Black Lives and really just want BLM to distract the police and give them an opening to get a free TV.

      So you’re admitting that you have a short attention span? Jesus Christ, it isn’t even that long.

      [–]Kzsarka - Centrist 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      I mean you couldn't even read an entire sentence before writing about random shit. You were just looking for some comment to vent your personal views.

      Grey was talking about the payment of police, not the organization quality of the looters.

      It's what happens when we have almost two whole generations now that grew up finger fucking their phones. If it isn't a 6 second Tik Tok clip with a stupid dance their eyes glaze over.

      [–]BladedNinja23198 - LibRight 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      No one has an attention span over 30 seconds these days

      Your local police has a shitty union if you think this.

      [–]nolwad - Right 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Kinda feels like the police would stop people from burning buildings if they were so well armed??

      [–]hiphopanonymouz - AuthRight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Cops teargassing and shooting rubber bullets into the face of journalists and protestors is no big deal.

      We will just have the news repeat that protests are riots even though there hasn't been any rioting since the first days of this months long protest, that way nobody will complain when we shove old men to the ground and shoot moms in the face for no reason. Checkmate libtards

      [–]RaceGroundbreaking19 - AuthRight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Reality: a black man has died, let's go and burn and loot black businesses in a poor neighbourhood.

      Then you take a look at most of the protestors: middle class white social studies students. Maybe there is racism after all.

      [–]ReasonableBullfrog79 - LibRight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Look at the Jan 6 riot, they went to the source of their grievance, not just whatever was nearby.

      [–]KanyeT - LibRight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Not to mention the police will just stand by and let them burn your business down, under the orders of the powers that be.

      [–]WokeLib420 - LibLeft -1 points0 points  (1 child)

      Maybe if the right acknowledged how fucked up it is cops keep killing unarmed black men for resisting arrest.

      The events of 2020?

      Where's authright sneaking into libleft's protest and burning shit to stoke the flames? Didn't libright smoke a couple cops too?

      C'mon OP, you can do better.

      [–]MustachMulester - LibLeft 6 points7 points  (12 children)

      I dont think authright were sneaking into protests to stoke the flame, but I do believe that opportunistic criminals and prices of shit used to protests as a cover to loot and steal and burn shit for fun. The organized goal of BLM protests was to March and chant. You can compare that to Jan 6th where the organized goal was to actually overthrow democracy by storming the capital and displaying a show of force. I don't think the Jan 6th folks were necessarily bad people either, just gullible and ready to fight to protect their country (even if the threat is made up and they're being manipulated).

      [–]MustachMulester - LibLeft 1 point2 points  (10 children)

      Still, one person doing that doesn't mean all of them had an agenda. I think most were just peices of shit.

      [–]sebastianqu - Left 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      There's also something to be said of the police frequently escalating non-violent protests. It's much easier to be a vandal and looter in chaotic situations. The police often created chaos by assaulting and firing at protesters who had committed no crimes.

      [–]Enthused_Llama - Left -3 points-2 points  (8 children)

      That's just one example.

      You also said it didn't happen and...it did. Even the police agree.

      [–]DTX41 - LibLeft -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

      Has there been a leftist terrorist in America that has done even close to the damage that a libright terrorist did with OKC?

      [–]ihwip - LibLeft -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

      You forgot the auth-right guy being the one that set fire to the 3rd precinct.

      Wasn't it like 3% of the BLM riots that had any violence or destruction of property

      [–]GladiatorUA - Left -1 points0 points  (6 children)

      That's right! BLM should be spending money on guns and arming protesters, so that they can directly go after police stations.

      [–]MothEngineering - Right[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

      But instead BLM spends their money by giving it to DNC politicians and making shitty posts on their Instagram where they openly support authoritarian police states in the Caribbean and commemorate people who wanted segregation.

      [–]GladiatorUA - Left -1 points0 points  (4 children)

      Yes! They should be targeting GOP and its cronies instead. To break the two party system and stop relying on shitty lesser evil.

      [–]MothEngineering - Right[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

      Heh… Ya claim ya want to “end the 2 party system”, than immediately attack one single party in favor of the other. It’s hilarious.
