Who in the 'right' mind would want to be a Police Officer in democrat run cities?

I suspect not many. NYC has dismissed the entire recruitment class. Other cities are cutting budgets, limiting how police can deal with life and death situations and openly condemn those putting their lives at risk every day.

It appears to be an attempt to replace competent police force with one that is toothless and useless. What about the recent rise in crime, murder, children being killed? I guess the dems see this as an appropriate sacrifice.

 

There will be a large segment that will say... told ya so.

Here we go again, folks.

 

Remember that conservative contributors use a minuscule circle of "factual resources" like BRIETBART NEWS, THE WASHINGTON TIMES, AND THE DAILY SIGNAL.

 

Look what happens when they exit that minuscule circle of resources.

 

They end up using a TABLOID, that had a pro-German stance in WWI, that is called a "force for evil", is rated the least credible news source in New York, and has published headlines like "HEADLESS BODY IN TOPLESS BAR".

NO! IT'S CONSERVATIVES THAT ARE NUTTIER THAN SQUIRREL POOP!

Reagan's Taxscam cut taxes on the top 1% by 80%, and every GOPer POTUS since has added to that scam.  The result of all the lost revenue ( total collections went UP only because Reagan increased SS taxes and counted the SS surplus as part of the increase he claimed) was killing of the Revenue Sharing with the States. then Republicans prevented State TAXES from restoring the lost Federal funds so cities had to resort to having fines collected by police pay for the operation of the police department. Rich people have lawyers to beat those fines in court, poor people do not, so cops, not being stupid, concentrated on extracting fines from the ones they knew would have to pay. those who woulc not pay went to jail, lost their jobs, often lost their families to divorce, and had serious problems finding a job after they were released. THAT is the source of the increased crime in our cities.

 

Repeal; the Reagan taxscam and restore Revenue sharing. If cops don't have to prey on the poor who are often black or brown, in order to pay their own salaries, they will stop being revenue collectors and return to being those who serve and protect ALL the people. This transformation might take some time, BUT failure to restore the TAX revenue to run our cities will insure cops will NEVER stop preying on the poor BECAUSE THAT'S HOW THEY KEEP THEIR JOBS.

 

Once again, if you REALLY want to understand why society acts the way it does, FOLLOW THE MONEY!

Cops usually "prey on" those that are committing crimes, rioting, and killing people - they happen to be liberals (whatever color) for the most part!

If only that  were true, but alas, that situation exists only inside the Republibubble. How is it that Fox keeps showing videos of looting and pillaging, BUT NOT OF COPS ARRESTING THE LOOTERS AND PILLAGERS???

 

Simple answer, the Cops are ALL across town gassing, beating and choking peaceful protesters, which the looters KNOW, so they KNOW its highly unlikely they'll get caught. They also KNOW Republicans will focus public outrage on the protests by conflating the demonstrators with the career criminals responsible for the vast majority of the looting.

 

As for political affiliation, the looters are virtually ALL Libertarian neo-Con GOPers WHO WANT A GOVERNMENT TOO SMALL TO INTERFERE WITH THEIR CRIMINAL ACTIVITY!  Just like the GOPerLords but on a much smaller scale.

The New York Police Department has seen a spike in the number of cops calling it quits in the aftermath of George Floyd‘s death.

The New York Post reports that a record 272 uniformed officers filed for retirement in the weeks between Floyd’s May 25 death in Minneapolis police custody and Wednesday, June 24. That’s nearly double the number of retirement during that same time frame last year.

The department said that 138 cops put in their papers between late May and late June in 2019.

One NYPD source told the news outlet that the wave of resignations could preclude a crisis for the 36,000-member police force that is also facing a $1 billion budget cut as protesters demand government officials “defund the police.”

For once, I actually agree with something Not Happening said. I also think DeBlasio's reduction in the police budget was idiotic.

 

However, the above doesn't change the fact that Not Happening does NOT understand crime analysis. Crime is very similar to the stock market. There are periods when it sky rockets for a short period, such as the summer, and then there are time frames when everything calms down. such as the winter. The only analysis of crime trends which is considered significant in the field is preferably over a 2-3 year time frame. 

 

When one examine the last 15-20 years of crime in NYC, it has repeatedly set new records for low crime rates, especially homicides.

New York City crime stats show spike in burglaries and murders so far this year

 

https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/16/us/new-york-city-crime/index.html

 

 

As do all other liberal run cities/towns!

Not Happening just proved he does NOT understand the significance of Crime stats and how they are used/interpreted.. Only a Trump Cult member would use short term numbers for crime analysis. 

 

Those who work in the field understand one must use LONG TERM statistics so you can develop and analyze trends. Long Term in crime analysis is a minimum of one year, but preferably numbers over at least a 2-3 year time frame.

Members of the Obama cult don't seem to gather many facts from the short term tenure of Comrade Deblasio.  His goal is to downsize the cops by defunding $1 billion dollars.  The 600 plainclothes policemen that recently were there aren't anymore!  This is the foolhardy left at their very finest.  If they want crime, they haven't seen anything yet.  So Critical, if you want to look at long term figures, be my guest and enjoy the crime wave during the left's reign!

City Achieves Historic Reduction in Murder as Crime Falls in Every Major Category

The NYPD announced today that year-to-date index crime is down by almost 2,500 complaints, or -5.4%, a new record-breaking low for any first half of any year in the CompStat Era. Murders in the city also fell to a new first half record-low of 135, a 15.5% reduction over 2018 that broke the previous first half record-low of 136, which was set in 2017.

Not Happening is fixated on Chicago, but he never talks about that large city on the east coast many of you heard of. Yes, I'm talking about NYC, which is true BLUE. The crime rate under Democratic administrations in NYC has been dropping to record lows for the past 20 years. So much for Not Happening's theory.

To attract better people to becoming Police requires we take a look at how REPUBLICANS have made it such an unappealing job. Not a difficult task - Republicans have been working to cut taxes FOREVER! When they succeed, something has to be eliminated from Public Spending, and since 1985 Republicans have transferred TRILLIONS from the bottom 90% to the top 10% and caused a chronic under funding of: education, roads, water systems, public hospitals and clinics, housing, nutrition, care for the mentally challenged and child care.

 

Then the inevitable results of those reductions in services have been handed to the POLICE to deal with, but instead of increasing manpower and specialized personnel, GOPers gave the cops MILITARY HARDWARE and training in urban combat.

 

The schools deteriorated both in regards to the physical plant and the quality of education. Instead of there being counselors for the at risk kids and "alternative schools" (50's style boot camp) and truant officers for "socializing" the hard cases, they wind up  on the streets for the cops to deal with. All those folks you see chasing pigeons in the city park were once housed in mental facilities that Republican tax cutting eliminated. No more aid to families trying to buy a home, so kids grow up in somebody else's property with the result - well, how often to people write on their OWN bathroom walls or bust up the porcelain?

 

Want better Police? Repeal the Reagan taxscam and restore all the SERVICES that have been handed to the police to deal with.

I just love pointing out that they are Democratic run cities because the voters have tried being under Republican governing and know that, regardless of what is going on right now, being governed by Democrats is far.......far better. LOLOLOL

Many cities are Democrat run cities for long periods of time and the biggest time has the biggest failure rate!  For example, Chicago has been Democrat run for over 100 years and you are aware of the shooting and death toll there?  Republican cities/towns are NOT lawless!

Trump World is full of ignorant bigots who worship the pathological liar in the White House that surrounds himself with convicted felons. Unlike the Republicans, the Democrats mean well and try to do the right thing, but they suffer from stupidity. The Dems do one dumb thing after another.

 

What we need here is balance. The overwhelming majority of police officers are men and women who do the job properly. Unfortunately, police departments have a small, but significant minority of officers (15-20%), who came on the job because they enjoy hurting people.

 

Instead of attacking police departments as a whole unit, the Dems should try to eliminate as many of that small minority from the job. They can start by holding them accountable for crimes they commit and instituting a national database, so that fired officers can't easily get a job in another county or state.
