Divert money used to militarize to increase fhe training budget and police pay/benefits to attract higher caliber police officers and also invest in disadvantaged neighborhoods.
So your saying the solution is to have a Social Worker force that can respond 24/7 at a moment’s notice ? This is a great example of something that looks good on paper but will fail miserably in practice.
I have a ton of thoughts but admit I am awful at putting those thoughts in writing.
Regardless, we can spitball ideas all day long, it is meaningless because our justice system is beyond repair at this point so we can change how we police and it still won't matter.
I don’t have all the answers and don't pretend to but some great conversations that are happening right now involving much smarter people than I and I hope that can spark some change. They are much more qualified than me. I'm just some guy who mashes a keyboard all day configuring routers and switches.
