If Zimmerman hadn't been armed he would have minded his own business and everyone would have simply went home that night.That's going to get people killed. Honestly, because I can think, just off the top of my head, of 3 times when police showed up to what should have been non-events... like someone is out in the car in the parking lot.... and it turned into a violent confrontation.I disagree. As I understand it, right now if you call 911 the operator has 2 choices, armed police officers or fire/EMT. If some money is re-directed from armed police to unarmed, community police, you give that 911 operator another option for someone just sleeping in his car. Is that defunding police or focusing policing? Might be good is every cop spend his first 5 years as an unarmed, community police force before they got their wings.What do you call.... redirecting some of the police funding? That's.... defunding.
Now you are going to send unarmed people out? Yeah....
I think we're going to disagree on this... good luck with that. I know I'm not doing that for sure.
Some guy on PCP in his car at a Wendy's parking lot, and you want me to go check it out, with zero protection? hahahah.... yeah so I wonder who they intend to get to do that job.
Right now, if Zimmerman had not been armed, he would have been in the hospital with brain damage. So I get a call about a suspicious guy walking behind the condo buildings, and I have no protection at all... I'm going to get my face smashed in.
No. Not doing that. You are going to get people killed. Bad plan.
In fact, I just remembered this.... I worked at the homeless shelter, and they were asked why they had armed security, and the reason is because an unarmed guard asked a homeless person to not sleep on the steps, and the homeless guy pulled a knife and attacked the guard with it. Could have killed him. And guard couldn't do anything. He was unarmed. NO.... bad plan. Very bad plan.
