NathanAllen: FnkyTwn: Won't someone think of the white people?!!

Who else here farking hates being White?

I mean I understand the feelings of superiority and shield of position, but is that all we can be? Do we all have to be racist as well as assholes? Can we be non-racist and non-assholes?

And why do we all have to be at each other as well? We basically hate each other as much as some of us hate other ethnic groups, but just not with overwhelming racism, just everyday hate.

Maybe we can just not be so terrible to everyone, including ourselves?

Nice to dream.

austerity101: Emposter: MattytheMouse: austerity101: Just popping in to remind everyone that defunding the police is an option, and it would work. It would absolutely work a lot better than the nothing we're currently doing.

And if people think defunding is too radical, I just want to remind everybody that the Bargersville Indiana police department just got a Tesla patrol car.

And?  Teslas cost less over the lifetime of as vehicle, especially one with heavy use.

Fine with defunding the police, just confused by the Tesla reference.

Because police departments (and the cities who budget them) are known for thinking long-term with their equipment purchases? You had to know this wasn't a great argument.


So your ok with racism if they have less equipment?

How about we say NO to ALL RACISM instead?

So how did being ok with system racism if we pay them less to do it become a thing?

Farking this. Police budgets are massively overblown, way too many sensitive responsibilities (such as 'responding to any kind of mental health crisis' or 'anything that requires deescalation') are piled on the shoulders of people who are not properly trained to handle them, and there are nowhere near enough resources going to address the actual root causes of crime (ie poverty, poor treatment of ex-cons, and a lack of a social safety net in general).

There was a cop thread earlier today about a police car that zoomed through a crowd of people,  and a handful of Farkers got their stink all up in that thread with "NoT AlL CoPs," and "wElL wHaT ElSe aRe ThEy SuPpOsEd tO Do?!"

I just want to reiterate: fark the police, and fark you if you think thoroughly dismantling this crooked institution and replacing it with something more democratic and community driven is too radical.
