    Dallas is doing a fine job on keeping their murder rates down.

    Well, some people want to defund the police. This is the result. Dallas is short hundred of officers. Increase pay and fill the ranks.

      A. Police don’t prevent crimes from happening.We have police at large events and schools yet mass shootings still occur. AI predictive technology exist yet crimes move elsewhere.
      B. De-funding the police actually mean RE-funding the police and reallocating where that money goes. Better training. Better public service resources. A different approach. Militarization approach hasn’t been working as we’ve been witnessing an has created a social gap, a prison welfare system, and a fiscal burden to taxpayers hidden under the guise of “back the blue”.

        Yes, Einstein, police DO prevent crimes from happening. For example, beat cops (mostly in years past) made the bad guys aware the police were around and made the people feel at least some sense of safety and comfort. No, defunding the police does NOT actually mean re-funding the police, unless so stated in whatever municipality. And that so-called “militarization” approach you mention is only used in severe situations, like rioting…in other words, when the very fascist blm and antifa groups do their thing.

        Moe, try pulling your head out…..if it isn’t stuck too far up……

      Furthermore, you can’t say “this is the result” because, nothing has changed yet. It’s the same now as it was 2 years ago. You’re point is moot.

    Moe, go lay down.
