"De-Funding the Police" - US

"De-Funding the Police" - US
I hear Rod Serling’s voice:

"Imagine, if you will, a head-in-sand liberal of mis-applied compassion trapped in a decaying city. He supported the de-funding of his own police department, so now there is nobody to protect him. Somali gangs and Mexican drug cartels now rule with violence and terror, extracting protection money from their benefactors. Having made his bed, he now must lay in it, forever afraid, in the Twilight Zone….”

I would be interested in some links which explain in detail the UK model of policing and honest assessments of how that is working...

GEORGE FLOYD (1974-2020)

George Floyd, 46, died while being arrested for passing a counterfeit twenty dollar bill in Minneapolis, MN., on May 25, 2020.
George was a lifelong drug addict and career criminal whose interests included selling cocaine and fentanyl, robbing defenseless women during home invasions, and spending time in prison among others like him. The cause of death is undetermined but George, unsurprisingly, tested positive for methamphetamine and fentanyl, two of his favorite recreational drugs.

George recently moved to Minneapolis to get a fresh start and to leave Houston, where he accumulated three convictions for drug offenses and aggravated robbery while armed with a firearm. The fact that his most recent arrest was for
a non-violent offense shows that George had finally found his way.

George is survived by several children from several different baby mommas, none of whom had seen him for years because he was only recently released from Texas State Prison after serving a five year sentence for his robbery conviction.
Funeral services will be held on various dates all over the country to honor this pillar of society. Mourners are invited to join violent demonstrations to honor George's memory.

Molotov cocktails are requested in lieu of flowers. Murdering an innocent police officer with a wife and young children would
also be an acceptable way of demonstrating our respect for George.

It's going to hell in a handbasket over here as well. We have the added disadvantage of being disarmed but I'm confident once the sh1t hits the fan we can get all the firearms we need. Only real change is that it will be the mafia (or equivalent) that we will pay of protection money too instead of the cops. At least the mafia will actually do something if push comes to shove.

The bit I'm looking forward to is that without the protection of law all these SJWs are in for a big shock. Can't see the Mafia clamping down like the stasi do on naughty words. I've my list, best get working on yours although it is clear that the US is going first.

A wave of NYPD officers has filed for retirement in the weeks following George Floyd’s death on May 25, refocusing attention on police morale amid widespread protests and calls to defund law enforcement. The NYPD told Fox News on Saturday that 272 officers have filed for retirement between Floyd’s death and June 23. That represents a 49 percent increase over the same period in 2019.

Resignations and actual retirements have remained relatively stable with 135 retirements in 2020 and 131 during the same time last year. According to the department, that’s because the recent spate of filings hasn’t been processed yet. The department saw 35 resignations in 2019 compared to 36 so far in 2020.

...Proponents of a more traditional law and order approach, meanwhile, said the change would be disastrous for a city already reeling from the pandemic and an exodus of wealthier residents who fled as a result. Shootings and murders have surged in recent weeks, and the budget cuts are just the latest move the city has made away from a more aggressive style of policing.

“Mayor de Blasio’s message to New Yorkers today was clear: you will have fewer cops on your streets. Shootings more than doubled again last week. Even right now, the NYPD doesn’t have enough manpower to shift cops to one neighborhood without making another neighborhood less safe,” said Police Benevolent Association president Pat Lynch in a statement issued Monday.

“We will say it again: the Mayor and the City Council have surrendered the city to lawlessness. Things won’t improve until New Yorkers hold them responsible," he added.

It is not clear whether the 36,000-member NYPD’s headcount will fall as a result of the budget deal.

I would worry about this if it were happening in a place I gave a crap about!

Occurring in NYC, not a place in the real world, it is to be expected and I don't care.

New York went through the entire 20th Century with little or no civil police protection and what did exist being in the hands of the Democratic political party or the mafia, if one could tell the difference.

New York is similar to London in that it is a place to avoid at all cost and if your employer tries to transfer you there you find another job ASAP. Normal rules of logic simply do not have any force in these places. Like Chicago, LA, San Francisco and possibly Key West.

In GB you have London, Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester with Glasgow up north to round things out.

What happens in those place has no real affect on life as we know it.

OK the truth is already revealing itself over here.

the "police departments are being dissolved and replaced with "departments of public safety" or other similar labels.

All officers are being terminated and they must reapply to the new entity and go through full health and phsyc screening and interview to recover their positions.

The key is that all pay and benefits have to be renegotiated. Top tier pay grades will of course be eliminated and new officers will be working on new and cheaper contracts.

The police unions will have no jurisdiction over these employees since they are not "law enforcement, or police, officers" any longer.

These major cities are not quaking in their boots at all, they are looking at this move as a cost reduction measure.
