Nah, don’t defund the police, defund blanket authority. What’s happen in Seattle right now is going to backfire like CHOP did. Badly. Seattle is going to be looking at a military state next January/February if things keep going like they are. Due entirely to the socialist idiots and the right wing fugs egging them on. And yes Seattle is not a good measure to go by but it’s what we have right now.
That’s why I agree with the Yang approach. Give the police the carrot and the stick approach for once and let them choose. If they want their overtime. They have to root out those like the officer from Minny before this poo happens. If they lose 40K a year in overtime because of a few bad apples that’s their fault
for the country. moderate policy becoming the new 'far left' will be a disaster that the country will not recover from. trump is a fascist, but he's a bumbling fascist with more sex assaults than brain cells. when ruthless and calculating fascists become the new norm, we're done as a country and probably as a world.
this is what the rightward trending of politics that Biden embodies directly leads to.
you think after 4 years of Biden, the country is going to be like "well the democrat didn't work, we still don't have healthcare, the planet is still dying, we still live in a capitalist hellscape, so.... let's try someone further left" lmfao no. they're going to swing hard right in response to "all these leftist promises never happened and Biden just helped the corporations like democrats always do" and they will elect someone openly advocating death camps.
