Defunding the police?


I am kind of unclear how this works but willing to learn..

Quite simple.

A city has a let's say 5 billion dollar budget for services.

Instead of giving the police system 4 billion of that budget and the rest of the city services one billion, you flip it and give social services, education, homeless, etc etc the four billion portion and the police the small piece of the pie.

Obviously more complicated than that, but that's the dumb down version.

So when someone robs my house who do I call or am I SOL?

Who writes the accident report?

defunding police doesn't = getting rid of the police.

I guess 'reduce Police budgets and move to social services' doesn't sound as catchy as Defund the Police

It also means remaking what the police force is though.  Getting rid of qualified immunity and the power of the Union to stop officers from being fired for misconduct.  Fundamentally changing the responsiveness of the police force to city officials.  That part isn't capture as much in the reduce the budget formulation.

Well Minneapolis is talking about eliminating its police department period


I have read accounts that talk about replacing the police with community organizations etc

I think many of the people talking about defunding the police mean eliminating it altogether

How exactly would this work? If someone is murdered is the police replacement meant to respond as quickly or because they have no funding do they begin investigation in three weeks?

What if god forbid there is a mass shooting? Who responds?

Letís not even talk about the implications for the general election

I canít imagine any democrat winning on this platform so do we think Trump and Barr will do nothing in response to this movement once they win on a donít defund the police platform?

Getting rid of police for good is as easy as getting rid of systemic racism for good. It's not happening. The city of Minneapolis will still have some sort of a police department when this is all said and done.
