Defunding the Police

      Comments Off on Defunding the Police

Reform is what is needed, and not defunding the police for the following reasons:

1. It is disrespectful to the majority of the police, yes, an overwhelming majority of the Cops are serving us with integrity. We cannot denigrate their service for the few ugly cops out there. To blame a group of people, you should have at least 51% of them to be wrong to brand a people.

2. There is no group, not a single civic, religious, ethnic, or social group that does not have bad men and women among them. They are always a tiny group. We have had bad presidents, corrupt clergy in all religions, bad politicians, evil CEO’s… Let’s not single out police. 

The imaginary citizens policing will also have bad people in it. Even the perfect NASA had two accidents. 

If the Defunding cry continues, I will write a full article and offer solutions to the Media and the politicians. I cannot imagine the chaos, murders, lynching and disorder without the police.

One of the solutions is for the Cops to take monthly quiz prepared to test the proclivities of the cops. If they score the right score, they can go back on the road or take reorientation class or plain remove them.
