Forget defunding police. That won't change officers' behavior, or stop them from killing people. They will still get a "get out of jail" card and a paid vacation. Instead, ABOLISH THEIR QUALIFIED IMMUNITY!! If they can get sued for their actions they will stop behaving badly.

Police don't stop robberies, murders, recover property or missing persons, or stop domestic abusers, They are only in place to keep rich criminals in hold of the property they have stolen. And to keep good people from defending themselves. AND involved in human trafficking and refuse to rescue the children. They actually hand children over to known pedophiles. So pretty much useless

That interview was devoid of a lot of facts and very misleading. Brooks was suspected of DUI and initiated the fight, when he was legally being taken into custody and then stole a weapon from an officer and discharged it after him prior to being shot. Also how would organizations like MADD feel if the police stopped enforcing DUI laws and just sent everyone home in an Uber? What if they go out 10 min later in another car and kill someone in a crash? As for the other case with Wright, again he was being legally taken into custody on a court issued warrant when he initiated the fight by resisting arrest. The officer accidentally shot him thinking she had a taser so there was zero intent to kill or injure him. She just screwed up and she has to be accountable for that, but the idea that she was trying to kill him is just. It supported by the evidence. This interview was a huge disservice to truth and to the safety of our communities as violent crime rates are surging as the police are vilified. Be careful what you wish for, it may come home to roost.

Right, because I'm sure the people setting cars on fire and screaming at bystanders in the street really have a nuanced view of "Defund the Police." Shame on Conan for such cravenness. I think it's a shame that the people who guard us day in and day out and who put their lives on the line are sneered at and demonized by people, like Conan, who know virtually nothing about their lives. Shame.

he basically said to send a person to a 5150 call with a sandwich. this is the problem, that guy has no idea how police tactics work. the public needs to be educated on what a police officers duties actually entail and the kind of training they receive i.e. use of force (how it actually works), responding to a 5150, responding to a domestic violence, etc etc. unless that happens, people like this guy will continue to spout this nonsense

@Articulated Kat I’ve gone though a police academy and have done 5150 along with a dozen other scenario trainings. Secondly, you’re using urban dictionary as a source; trying using Webster’s like a grown up if you’re want to be taken serious on a debate. You like this man further proves my point. You think you know what you’re talking about but you, like this guys need to be taught how police tactics work. He’s recommending to send an unarmed and untrained civilian to a situation that can quickly turn sideways. They can send a social worker if they wanted, but the police would need to be present for when the 5150 pulls a blade out of their pocket. You’re really angry and ignorant

That's so cute, how you pretend that you know what you're talking about by using a code that doesn't actually mean what you think it does. Did you hear that on COPS? https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=5150 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5150The nonsense is coming from inside the house. Most police are NOT in danger every day, they are NOT faced with violent altercations that they have to meet with violence on a regular basis. And, regardless of the demographic of their victims, police kill FAR MORE civilians every year than officers are killed by civilians. https://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/press-releases/fbi-releases-2019-statistics-on-law-enforcement-officers-killed-in-the-line-of-duty For that matter, police in the US kill FAR MORE civilians per capita than in other countries. https://www.prisonpolicy.org/blog/2020/06/05/policekillings/ Of course, black people are killed by police more than white people, by comparison to what percentage of the population they are. https://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2020-06-03/data-show-deaths-from-police-violence-disproportionately-affect-people-of-color https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2020/06/23/fact-check-how-many-unarmed-black-men-did-police-kill-2019/5322455002/ Your bullshit is what's dangerous, and is contributing to a real ignorance about police culture in our society.

@John wick No, defund literally means to prevent something from receiving funds.

Peter

@willisverynice also you have to think about the many levels of holding police accountable and thereby decrease police misconduct. Adequate training is only one level. How can police departments hold their officers accountable? Training (and continuing education as in other fields of work) and internal affairs How can the general public hold police officers accountable? If an officer doesn't want to give their ID or badge number, there's really not much you can do. How can victims of officer-involved accidents/incidents (shootings, vehicle collisions, false arrest, illegal detainment, etc) hold police officers accountable? How can the legal system hold police officers accountable? Qualified immunity is a pretty big roadblock if there isn't legal precedent for holding officers accountable. How can officers hold officers accountable? How can officers hold themselves accountable? How can the media hold officers accountable? And so on and so forth. Hint: The answer to all of the above is not merely training.

Vor Monat
Peter
Peter

@willisverynice Let's be clear I was not saying a higher education requirement would make police any better because there are certainly people who manage to graduate from college every year that lack intelligence. Better training is just one aspect. If you've ever watched John Oliver's specials on police and police training, you'd see *how much* and *what* kind of training officers are getting that makes it inadequate for when they are actually out in the field (if you haven't watched it I would recommend it, [edit: despite what you might think of John Oliver, his show's writers actually *do their own research*]). The most important factor to decrease police misconduct isn't training though, it's actually holding police accountable and that can be done in one part by ENDING QUALIFIED IMMUNITY. If a medical professional injures or kills someone by accident, they lose their license and may actually face consequences for it. If a law enforcement official injures or kills someone by accident, at most they lose their job but they could still reapply to work at a PD in a different jurisdiction. At the very least they get put on desk duty for a few months with Internal Affairs "looking into things" but then they get put back in their positions afterward. The scenario where a cop actually goes to jail/prison (i.e. Derek Chauvin trial) for misconduct while on the job is extremely rare. Another thing about holding police accountable is actually changing the system so it's not cops protecting cops, or judges protecting cops, or attorneys protecting cops because at every level of law enforcement or the justice/legal system there are people not willing to hold themselves or their colleagues accountable.

Vor Monat

​@Peter Sure, some people in any occupation are "dumb". Higher qualifications are hard to demand if you aren't going to pay them more money or pay for the training. Many people with GEDs or high school diplomas are perfectly intelligent, and many people with college degrees are not. I don't see what your problem with better training is or why you don't see that as one of, if not the most important factor in order to decrease police misconduct.

People need to understand that defunding the police is not just about changing who responds to a conflict, its really about preventing these conflicts from occurring in the first place. Take the "crazy person yelling in the street" example. It would be better if a police officer who is trained to deal with people who have mental health issues, or a social worker trained in that field, to respond to that situation, but it would be even better if that "crazy" person had access to therapy to treat their mental health issues and prevent them from yelling in the street in the first place. Much of the defunding is about allocating the money to systems that will help prevent situations that police normally have to respond to. For those who have seen Falcon and the Winter Soldier, its like in the season finale when Sam Wilson talks about how the Flagsmashers have committed all of these horrible crimes, "but no one stopped to ask why."

@Noah Freitas Look up the numbers... the whole thing makes no sense. US spends 160 billions a year on policing. The K-12 system alone costs 4-5 times as much. And schools are only one point on a list of several items. Besides, the US already spends more money per capita on schools than most European countries do. The problems are clearly not from school funding. It makes no sense to try and talk how to reallocate money, when you clearly don't even know how much money is there and what can be done with it. You only give qualitive statements and that doesn't work. I could also say, let's raise taxes by 5% and give every citizen 1.000.000 USD. So no-one has financial issues anymore.. Does that work? Of course not. But it is precisely in line how you and the defund the police activists argue. What would help is to do proper journalism again (not propaganda) and actually encourage people to learn and do something productive.

You're saying that these public "safety-net" systems are very underfunded which explains why police have to play a much larger role than what they are intended for. If these other programs do get more funding, and all of these societal problems like crime and homelessness go down, then wouldn't the need for police decrease, thus allowing their budgets to decrease?

You need to understand that what you ask for is much more expensive than the police. Therefore defunding the police is simply idiotic. If you want to have more schooling, better housing, more social workers, etc.. It is all fine. But if you think you can get that by simply taking money from the police, you never even tried to calculate costs. Police does not need to be defunded. The rest needs to be better funded.

Send in a social worker? Really? If I remember a while back cops where called for a well being check on a house and seconds after knocking the door guy pulled a knife on cops, but you wanna send in a social worker to talk to the guy running at them with a knife.... Right.

There are way way more incidents of police killing someone during a welfare check than any threat to the police during welfare checks. So yea.

Fyi: policing is a form of 'state patrol.' Mr Bell seems to be referencing the elimination of 'state patrol,' or the intent to incarcerate rather than assist. That is the same argument made by abolish police advocates. Abolish police and replace them with unarmed social science doctors, and maintain a rapid response SWAT team under EXTREME scrutiny and accountability for the 4%-5% of violent crimes.

@B Management if your referring to the blm riots I don't believe they where peaceful I think they started of peaceful but people took it to far and it just became to violent to be considered peaceful in my eyes and now I just wanna say I'm not just shiting on America because people like too, im talking about here in the UK as well as America. But I still believe that the use of the gas was justified for dealing with crowds that size but I agree that they should use different strategies in the future like I said I've seen a water canon in action those things work but if the cops don't have one then I'd say the use of the gas is justified so long it's used in a well ventalated outdoor area.

@ROBOCOP the problem is they use gas on peaceful people without provocation. During occupy wall street they corralled hundreds of people together eliminating any escape with orange netting and tear gassed them for nonviolent protest, that was retaliation, not dispersal. People have a right to seek redress with their government and if that is denied the people have a right to halt commerce and comfort in order to bring attention to situations. The use of sound and chemical weaponry by authorities who refuse the cries of the suffering is authoritarian, tyrannical, and cowardly. I understand using shields, flash bangs, and bean bags to defend a particular area, but using certain forms of weaponry is simply unethical and borders on downright evil.

@B Management I understand now its banned in wars because of the lethality when used in closed spaces and the burns it leaves on a person it was the same reasons why they banned mustard gas and such things. but use of tear gas outdoors or a well ventalated area is fine as its just used to dispers a crowd and the damage won't be to severe. In Ireland here we use water canons to get rid of crowds its effective and its a site to see honestly lol.

@Ahmenthi of course, prejudice and discrimination are both bad and unnecessary. I do know racism and can safely assume the original commenter falls under that category.

@Andrew Do you know his race? He has no avatar. Do you know mine? I'm wearing a mask in my avatar. Are you assuming he's white, or black? What is your point? Do you listen to other people's perspectives yourself, or do you just want people to agree with yours? Ibram X. Kendi, a driving force of this asshattery, says that "the only solution for past discrimination is present discrimination, and the only solution for present discrimination is future discrimination". I don't know about you, but I think discrimination is bad regardless of where it's pointed. It's regressive and counter to MLK Jr.'s dream, with the end goal being a return of segregation under the guise of "safe spaces". And segregation is returning, with multiple prestigious universities conducting segregated graduation ceremonies. Sorry, focusing completely on race only makes the animosity worse. There are more relevant factors to consider. Primarily class and personal choice. Not everything is a white or non-white issue.

A lot of people just love to see crime as if it’s just these wild nihilistic demons like in death wish movies. But actually nobody would become a “thug” if they hadn’t grown up in poverty. You would never have had an “NWA” if the members of that rap group grew up in decent housing and didn’t have to struggle to survive. Gangs form because they help people feel protected. But people who didn’t grow up in urban poverty don’t understand this. People have been brainwashed by super hero movies and cop-aganda tv shows into thinking crime is just people choosing to be bad. Or that it’s about race or “IQ” but if that was true, then how do people explain middle class and rich black neighborhoods where there is very little crime? Or in other countries that guarantee housing to everyone that crime rates are so low? People feel very threatened by the idea of “defund the police” on a deep emotional level because they’ve never really actually explored what it means in any depth and they’ve learned to caricature the people who advocate for it as fools , naive, or extreme
