    not that I don’t agree with premise that sometimes police are needed where social workers would fail ....

    But cmon , the knife is already at the throat . Police dispatch still takes just as long . Or do social workers not get emergency lights ?

    grandma is dead either way . I cannot endorse this cartoon

    That is something the bootlickers don't get. The vast majority of police responses are AFTER the violence happened. Probably the best argument for the second amendment.

    To be fair police presence can deter a crime. For example a squad car parked outside a gas station at night probably is off the list for a potential robber.

    Obviously there is a need for police. The people against reform like @MojoMan will use the most absurd arguments from the left to ignore legitimate reforms.

    We all know Cops will just shoot both the perp and the hostage so what’s your point?

    There should b more laws to keep dem bad apples of the force for good.

    Like if any Healthcare worker fked up and someone died cause of it they could lose their license and not practice.

    Police officer guns down the wrong person or got fired for doing something improper he can go find a job somewhere else. Quite disturbing.

    I read a dozen Mass state troopers are going to or already have quit over the vaccine mandate. I say good riddance to bad rubbish. If you're not willing to take a vaccine for yourself and the good of others, then you should not be entrusted over public safety.

    Another thing is the current anti-vax movement with the covid vax has a strong correlation with right wing rhetoric as it opposes "the left" and Joe Biden.

    Most of those 12 troopers are probably hard core right wing zealots. So good riddance.
