Right, because the police were so good at catching and prosecuting sexual assault before... :roll:
Cherry picking at it's finest, but nevertheless they'll do an even better job now, right? Since you think budget cuts are good, let's eliminate education spending.

A lot of Hollywood pedophiles and rapists are breathing a big sigh of relief.

And getting rid of gang enforcement? MS-13 will be happy about that.

If the democrats would stop nominating rapists, perhaps they would have a fighting chance.

CA has a state income tax. With nobody working, and nobody driving for tickets, they've got to trim the fat from all of their budgets.

You do understand the police don't prosecute right? That's what the court does. The police deal with violators.

If there's a problem with prosecuting sex offenders that's a problem with the district attorney.

Seems like you would cut a lot of things before you cut law enforcement. Why not cut fire department or EMS funding?

That makes about as much sense. If it's about spending money wisely that would make sense but I don't think it is. The anti-police sentiment is strictly political.

Safety net programs are the only ones they really want to slash.

Slashing the city council/mayor's salaries would be a great start.

I would love to see a national police strike.

Let's say.....30 days or so?

Let the degenerative Democrats/Liberals/Progressives have a taste of the damage they are doing.

The Democratic Party is openly pro-rape.

What Democratic mayors are doing is sacrificing their citizens for their own power and bureaucracy - taking money from police departments and transferring it to their city bureaucracy. This comes with the added benefit and goal of getting as many black people - and others - to be murdered, raped and assaulted.

Murdering, raping and assaulting black people and having this done has always been the most favorite past time of the Democratic Party and Democratic leaders. Democratic leaders of white majority cities now have engaged in the most murderous campaign against blacks in the entire history of the pro-slavery, murderous and racist Democratic Party.

How many black people are going to recognize the fanatical extent Democratic leaders of white majority cities are trying to kill, destroy and run black people out of their cities any way possible? Killing people for racist, sadistic and sociopathic political tactics is what Democratic leaders always do.

The Democratic Party is trying to use death, crime, disease, arson, vandalism and terrorism to drive black people out of their cities into Republican suburbs, hoping they will still keep voting Democratic. The Democratic Party would kill 100,000,000 people - ideally people of color - in their quest for total fascist power.

They should only stop protecting the wealthy parts of the city. Notice how the mayor of Seattle shifted from calling the domestic terrorists doing nothing but having a "block party" to having them arrested calling them criminals ONLY after they had got to the mayor's house.

Elitist Democrats always and only protect themselves. Everyone exists only for their purposes and if killing and terrorizing people benefits elitist Democrats they will kill and terrorize anyone and everyone.

I don't think some of you understand how overfunded the police are in the US.
You can easily cut funding to the police and use the money to fund things that will help people rather than sending them into the justice system. You could fund more mental health workers and maybe help create more apprenticeships so people can actually get jobs.
You need more social workers who will work with people not more police who treat every situation as if an offence has been committed.

The police don't need military equipment.

Military equipment kept San Bernardino's police officers alive during the final shootout with the 2 terrorists.

They could have survived without it and are you seriously saying the US police need military equipment to do the job at all times?
The rest of the worlds police somehow manage without military equipment and I'd argue that if the US has got so bad you need Robocop on the streets then maybe you have bigger problems than you imagine.

I also mean the original Robocop with all the swearing and violence not the crappy remake that I refuse to watch on principle.
Go Robo!!!!!
