Article in the NYT 3 days ago:
Yes, we mean literally abolish the police
So my question from another thread is, does this also mean abolish CSI units?
The answer seems to be “yes.”
CSI workers are usually commissioned/credentialed police officers. So they’d go away, too.
But the fact is, you need uniformed cops at a crime scene to maintain the integrity of the evidence.
If you are a defense attorney, the quickest way to get your defendant off is to show that the prosecutor didn’t maintain “chain of evidence,”
which means a sworn officer of the court guarded the evidence and delivers it to trial. With no cops, there’s no guarding the evidence. Which
basically means no more material evidence in criminal cases.
Second, if no cops are guarding the crime scene, then journalists are free to trample all over the footprints, blood spatter and chemical evidence to
“re-enact” the crime and even remove evidence. Neighborhood crowds can enter the scene for snapping selfies with the bodies. Arsonists and
rapists and the mafia can threaten crime scene investigators.
The article I cited says the average cop only makes one felony arrest a year. So we don’t need cops. Literally abolish them.....
What’s up with that?!?
