Police - It's starting

Post by cruiser » Wed Jul 15, 2020 8:42 am

The city of Berkeley PD will eliminate traffic stops by their Police department, will use an unarmed
force of civilian city workers to do the action, will also set goal to reduce the Police department
budget by 50%! - any thoughts?

I flipped on Fox News three or four times in last two days and each time they ran a segment on defunding the police, urban violence and evil Democratic mayors and governors.

I get tweets from the LA County Sheriff complaining about being defunded (having his budget cut in pre-2020-speak). Not sure if he realizes that 20.9% of the workers in his county have also been "defunded" and are having to adjust their own budgets. I doubt he's getting a lot of sympathy.

Transitioning some police functions over, like many traffic violations, makes sense. Police don't have a major responsibility for parking violations any longer.
