    There is no reason why police should be 30-50% of a States total budget.. There is nothing wrong with defunding and putting money into EDUCATION and better schools so that kids want to go to school and not hang on the streets. Social workers and Psychologists being dispatched that understand mental illness.. America is at the bottom when it comes to education so it’s a no brainer!!

    • where is popo that much of the budget? waiting…..

    • @Roger Wilco this person just makes things up

    • There is nothing wrong with defunding EXCEPT that crime will skyrocket and people will be victimized…. other than that there is nothing wrong with your idea. I am glad i live in a city whos mayor has some common sense

    Boycott July 7, 2020. Do not spend any money on 7/7/20 to support police reform. Show the power. Who pays for the police. We do!Tell your city or town councils you are boycotting and will continue until you are heard. $$$$$$$ talks.

      Look up “the black report” L.A. channel 13 8 PM & mike and donny show follows.

    • lol. be careful what you wish for.

    • thats an absolutely moronic suggestion if you want safer cities

      Jerry Hazeltine most black people are on welfare or too lazy to work so how is that going to impact your boycott?

    • Constituent A | July 1, 2020 at 5:02 AM | Reply

      @Latin Mixed Stupid comment. About 1.4 million people receive TANF, and the majority of them are white, followed by Hispanic and then black. If black people were lazy, no one would have captured and enslaved them in the first place.

    Well, good luck with securing LA.

      Marko Goldman, do you live in LA? Los Angeles was a much safer better place when there were neighborhood mental health centers and there were more community resources and commitment involvement. Once those services were defunded crime rose really fast. The solution is complex, were you thinking LA needs to be a police state? The more the citizens have resources and are involved the less the police are needed.

    • @Beverly Boyd Exactly. I grew up during the terrible times of the 90s and participated in the genocide of my own peoples to which I’m ashamed of but Los Angeles is nowhere near as bad as it was during the late 80s and all the 90s I cant count on both hands how many close personal friends I’ve lost to street violence I must have been to about 200 funerals of homies from my hood and other neighborhood crip gangs over the years when a young man from my hood is murdered because of what we did in those days breaks my heart known their lifes were lost over a blocc or a color. I work for a gang prevention organisation now and have done since I was released from prison 2 years ago after doing 10 year in San Quentin for gang related stuff

  9. my bipolar wife had a mental breakdown i called 911 many times for help.
    the only help i got was the police and they didn’t know how to handle a person with a mental health condition.

    This guy is a bozo murder is ip 250% in LA … Homeless are everywhere……

    I feel better now.

  12. lol….who you gonna call? listen to 911 calls and the desperate pleas for help. blue lives matter!

    • Still gonna call 911, Aristotle.

      But they will send the appropriate emergency service, which may or may not be the police, depending on the situation.

  13. Those responsible for the chess game are placing the WRONG tiles! A group is taking advantage to divert the attention of a town subjugated by a ruthless government.

    too bad Trump doesn’t have 25% of the brain of Mayor Garcetti!

  15. Armed citizens.

  16. I think a fundamental question needs to be asked. Do we want cops to prevent crime or to investigate crime? Because preventing crime will mean that, sometimes, people will have to interact with the police when they aren’t doing anything wrong.

    Here’s a scenario. Police have received reports of a series of burglaries in a neighborhood. The suspect has been caught on a couple of security cameras, but the only description is a male wearing black pants and a black hoodie with the hood pulled up. YOU are walking through that neighborhood, just going for a stroll. Wearing black pants and a black hoodie with the hood pulled up. A cop drives by. Should they be able to stop and question you? You’re doing nothing illegal, after all.

    Scenario two. YOU park your car on the street. A person with a brick in their hand is looking through the windows of your car. A cop drives by. Should they be ale to stop and question that person? That person has done nothing illegal. After all, having a brick in your hand is not illegal. Neither is looking in the window of a parked car.

    • @Dizzy Duke Are you saying that people don’t do dumb things? Would you prefer a scenario where someone isn’t doing something you consider “dumb?” I can come up with thousands where the actions of a person can be construed as suspicious by some but not by others and they aren’t breaking the law.

      Got any real arguments, other than calling one specific hypothetical situation “dumb?”

      You want a wide variety of people to all make the same arbitrary decisions. That’s patently impossible and just plain stupid. Those people are either given a wide leeway on the arbitrary decision or that arbitrary decision is completely removed.

    • @CJ J
      You talk too much

    • @Dizzy Duke And you take positions you can’t defend in a debate.

    • @CJ J
      I’m pretty sure I made good points. You just don’t know how to debate, successfully. Spitting in the wind is not debating.

    • @Dizzy Duke Then refute what I am saying. You haven’t done that once. Simple question. Who is to decide if an activity is “suspicious” or not? YOU?

  18. They are not even the solution to serve and protect the people in communities they have no parts with nor live in.
