Well, on the other side, I will say this.

Law Enforcement Officers in the US are CRIMINALLY UNDERPAID.

Many take the job because of "the perks" like qualified immunity.

A term which has fallen out of use was "Peace Officer."

Yes, I realize that was an oxymoron of sorts ... but that is actually the function of the police ... to maintain the public peace.

They were never meant to be quasi-military forces serving as judge, jury and executioner.

For anyone interested in the Strong Cities Network: Source




The Strong Cities Network is the first ever global network of mayors, policymakers and practitioners united in building social cohesion and resilience to counter violent extremism in all its forms.

We connect cities, towns and regions around the world to share their local best practice on an international scale and collaborate at the subnational level to prevent violent extremism and the conditions in which extremism and radicalisation can take hold in communities.

The Strong Cities Network is made up of member cities in every major global region, each with specific lessons, practice or challenges surrounding violent extremism. We work with mayors and local political leaders and frontline practitioners spanning multiple sectors in each member city. We also work closely with civil society groups and partner organisations in many areas.


Oooo. Scary.

That's the truth.

I will add that they are often not properly equipped or prepared for too many issues that they have to deal with as well, such as mental health calls and drug abuse/addiction issues.


A term which has fallen out of use was "Peace Officer."


Right along with "to serve and protect."

That is a good point, and I think that we have now criminalized so many things that should not be, expecting police to play the "enforcer," they no longer have the option of being a "peace" officer. It's been grossly unfair to the profession itself (generally speaking). From victimless crimes, to administrative crimes, to moral crimes, to cities that "police for profit," LEOs have been put in positions they never should have been put into.

ABSOLUTELY.

The so-called "War on Drugs" has contributed to about 90% of the issues with law-enforcement in this country.

Let's start by decriminalizing what people want to put into their bodies and go from there.

There are real protests, and then there are the made up protests by the left whom simply want to convert this nation into socialism... If you don't see that in the majority of these protesters then you are as blind as a bat.

There is no "systemic racism" in the U.S. BTW, I have stated that Chauvin should be the only one convicted with "intentional homicide..." But the calls for the other former police officers which include A BLACK person, and an Asian, to also be charged with intentional homicide is simply wrong... It is the same thing as claiming someone whom unintentionally kills another person should always be charged with intentional homicide.

The police are not provoking these riots. The left are provoking these riots, and the violence against all police officers.

Here is an example...



Chris Cuomo: 'Show me where it says that protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful'

Amendment 1 of the U.S. Constitution says:



Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
...

www.law.cornell.edu...

The left claims that all police officers are exactly like Chauvin, and this is false. The large majority of police officers are good people. They are even better human beings than most idiots in here bashing at "the police in general."

What we need to deal is with the people whom keep on provoking protests into becoming riots, and it isn't the police doing that.

Now, let's forget all the blatantly biased political garbage that OP is spewing ... lets look at the numbers rationally.

What this tells us is that the process of "law enforcement" is far more deadly to American citizens than it is to American police officers.

By an order of magnitude.


ROFLMAO, as if your lies are not politically charged and always full of BS...

Ironic how you leave out that the large majority of those killed by the police were armed, or tried to wrestle a firearm from the police. Only 19 people were unarmed and killed by the police in 2019. So, it is in fact the police whom keep on being murdered by criminals by an order of magnitude...

Not to mention the FACT that black criminals kill more blacks than the police does... But I guess your claims of "systemic racism" is not supported by these facts and you simply ignore them...

Let's just ignore the fact that no one can ever tell us exactly who "the left" is ... so it's convenient for any number of stupid arguments.

Let's further ignore the fact that "socialism" is possibly the most misused term in the English language, while we remember that we have been for at least 90 years or so a mixed economy.

Also, let us remember that both Republicans and Democrats support corporate welfare, which is far more socialistic than providing for the needs of the poor.

Let's start there: that puts a lot into perspective.

Americans have the right to bear arms so being "armed" is not criminal. Try again.

Definitely.

Not just policing, but the judicial system itself. Including the arbitrary but mandatory sentencing requirements. More harm has been caused to children, families, police and society as a whole because of its criminalization than the "crime" itself. Or, as we've also heard recently, the cure is worse than the disease.

I dare say the only ones to benefit are the drug cartels and the private prisons.

YES!!!

Especially when we know -- KNOW!!! -- that many of those criminalized substances have healing properties to nurse and nurture our bodies. It is a literal crime against all humanity.

Being armed and attacking the police, or someone else is a criminal offense. The majority of those people whom were armed and the police had to shoot them weren't simply keeping their firearms holstered... Keep on lying...

Ironic how left-wingers like you ignore the fact that your messiah said this about riots in 2015...

Nah. Drop the partisan BS.

The Second Amendment is our last line of defense against tyranny, even when that is personified by the local constabulary.

Most of those attacked by police were just defending themselves or their property, I'd wager.

You're in favor of an authoritarian police state. You only use partisan politics to provide cover.

Nope, the only ones in favor for an authoritarian police state are you, and the rest of your left-wing buddies. Unless you just want anarchy, which would explain why you are so anti-police... Heck, you have been one of the many calling to get rid of Trump as President using Russian lies paid off by Hillary and the DNC. Not to mention the fact that you never complained when the Obama administration labeled over half of Americans as "possible extremists/possible terrorists" just for being the political opposition to Obama... You love authoritarian states.

I disagree.

I am pointedly not in favor of a police state. I am in favor of getting rid of 90% of crimes on the books. I am in favor of demilitarizing the police. I am in favor of impaneling a grand jury when an officer is invovled in the death of a citizen.

I've been against Trump since he announced his candidacy, so again, you're mistaken or you're lying.

Your posts are transparent. You're interested in glorifying authoritarians and partisanship.

Get the log out of your eye before you go after the dust speck in mine, brother.

And now you try to strawman my claim? Sad.

Nope. You respond to everyone you disagree with by attacking them personally. That's an ad hom argument and is fallacious.
