And the perfect excuse to federalize/centralize all policing under federal authority. Welcome to the police state.
Not a matter of "excuse". When city and state officials criminally ALLOW criminals to commit crime, nothing could be more obvious than the need for the Insurrection Act, and US troops. That's exactly what it is meant for, and that is exactly the situation we have. Foregone conclusion.

Make no mistake about what we are witnessing. Leftists in America, from mayors to governors, to media, to movie stars, have gone completely unhinged, proving once again that there is no limit to the lunacy that these people will engage in. The latest crazieness is the call to defund police departments (at a time when they need to be strengthened), as well as to abolish the police entirely.

Don't think that just because this is totally absurd and insane, that it can't happen. It already has happened. In some cities, efforts to turn that notion into action are already underway, with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announcing on Wednesday that he would be making cuts of up to $150 million to the police budget, and reinvesting those funds in black communities. Not only a crazy and dangerous move, but a racist one, as well.

Several members of the Minneapolis City Council this week have expressed support for radical changes to how the city handles law enforcement, including a move to "dismantle" the police department and replace it with "a transformative new model for public safety." Steve Fletcher, a member of the Minneapolis City Council, condemned Bob Kroll of the police union in a long thread, in which he said the city should "declare policing as we know it a thing of the past."

Jeremiah Ellison, son of the Attorney General, Keith Ellison, tweeted "We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department, and when we’re done, we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response. It’s really past due."

All this is giving new meaning to the age old term, YOUNG AND STUPID.


Just don't forget when empowering the State, and granting special authorities to its minions; that every 4-8 years or so your opposition gets a shot at sitting in the big chair. So while busy tbemselves crafting a club to beat the plebes down with... Remember your gonna have to hand that baton over sooner or later.
My thoughts exactly.

Get rid of the police, then cause enough strife among the population that they protest and/or revolt, then use the Insurrection Act to deploy regular military troops to quell the uprising.

Sounds like a Stalinst wet dream to me.

Well, at least two of us can see this coming from a light year away.

True as that is, you are blind to the precedent it would set, which would be abused by any one of the Stalinist democrats at a moment's notice.....They will regain power at on point or another.

I shudder to think of a total despot like Hildabeest with the Insurrection Act at her disposal.

I know that's the argument of the committed statist, but has little actual living proof to back it up.

What we have now is the police beholden to corrupt and incompetent political buffoons, who are now using them as tools of social justice and occasional punching bags when they need to virtue signal.
The solution is the Insurrection Act and US troops to take over for the handcuffed police, and unused National Guard, not private ownership.

Make that 3, and it's probably more like 300 million. Just substitute the word REASON for "excuse". Our leaders don't need to be excused for protecting us. It's their # 1 duty.

I would hope the Democrats will NEVER regain power, and if they do, it will be our own fault for allowing that to happen.

And you are still stright-up blind to the fact that this would be abused by the next Stalinist democrat that gets into office at the first opportunity.

It can just as easily be abused by private owners. No limit to what people will do for MONEY.

well, it seems that in some of our larger cities, the leaders just not need any police force/protection. OK, so in that case, lets just fire all of the firemen and those who work in the services that the ER crew has to offer. This means when your house is on fire, hey, it's OK, all houses have garden hoses, right? And every time you get injured/fall off your roof/minor heart attack, just Take A Pill, and chill out for two days !
:cul2:
And maybe say a prayer to the new democrat jesus. Enough of this white privilege.... pry jesus christ off of the cross.... George Floyd goes up there...

Because they typically are looked at as a purely beneficial group of servants in the community who don’t have special authorities, and privileges that they can use and abuse to ruin or take your life. Remember that hit tune, “Fuck the Fire Department”? Me either...

Private business owners are paying out the ass for police protection right now, and we all see what that got them.....And the general citizenry is no better off than the businesses.

"Sure it's a shit show now, but we can fix it!"...After which nothing gets fixed and we end up with the same old complaints on down the road...You're as bad as the leftist losers you claim to oppose.

In your head
Police have active warrants against 75% of Ferguson population. Gee-Wiz, I wonder why they rioted!!!

"it is a literal fact. In Ferguson — a city with a population of 21,000 — 16,000 people have outstanding arrest warrants, meaning that they are currently actively wanted by the police.

That statistic should be truly shocking. Yet in the wake of the Department of Justice’s withering report on the city’s policing practices, it has gone almost entirely unmentioned. News reports and analysis have focused on the racism discovered in departmental emails, and the gangsterish financial “shakedown” methods deployed against African Americans."

I can see a few different scenarios playing out, if idiots get their way:
1. Police departments are fully defunded in some cities and there is no law enforcement. Crime skyrockets to absurd levels, since no one controls behavior and the cities become bastions of chaos, with pro-criminal elements in control. The pro-communist leftists complain that this needs to be solved by a large over-reaching centralized government, their ultimate goal in the first place.
2. Some cities minimize the funding of police departments, resulting in lay-offs and those who quit and thus there is a minimally-manned police department and an increase in crime. The law-abiding citizens demand a better manned and equipped police force and viola, it's back to having law and order.
3. In the case of Keith Ellison's son's plan for a recreated law enforcement, it probably has something to do with creating a law enforcement that is called, "the morality police" and they will be wearing crescent moon armbands and employing Islamic standards on all.

Interesting angle I forgot about that. Sure. Muslims will sneak in any way they can. Islamization never ceases. Good point.
