What if we somehow got rid of the police?

Apparently, everyone hates them now because they're all racist bastards who love killing innocent black people.

So I say we just let them all go on a permanent holiday so they can't shoot black people anymore.

That should work, right?







**If you cannot sense the sarcasm in my typed up words, then I'm telling you now that I'm simply being sarcastic.

However, I am pretty interested in what you think would happen if the police get fed up with the mob of people screaming for their heads and decide to go on strike. Like actually refuse to work and respond to any calls.. Obviously, that's highly unlikely, but just WHAT IF?

As a hardcore libertarian, I would love this.

Ah, who am I kidding, I'm already proscribed by several people. (Listed among those to be executed.)

I think that no police is definitely a bad idea, but, I also think that the police have become more militarized over the years and there's an in built us vs. them mentality. And trust me, I get harassed by the police more than most people on this site.

I think it would be better to systematically send them back to training, or give them a decent severance package and find replacement officers.

And remove some of the riotwear they now possess. A little while go I saw a video on facebook from some police station showing off their tank. yes, TANK. Why in god's name does a police station need a fucking tank?!?!?!?!? I'm not for disbanding it, but rather sending them into a time out to think of their actions and take away some of their most favorite toys.

I know it was sarcasm, but...the institutional racism in this country, and how it is also largely found in America's police force...it is a very real thing and it is a very real problem, and yes, a lot of black Americans have been treated unfairly just for being black, and yes, many black people have died for what is basically them being black.

Give an IQ test to police.
That should get rid of a good fraction.

"Sir, do you know why I pulled you over?"
"Because you made C's in high school?"
...


If we got rid of the police, the national guard or military would step in probably. I really don't want Rick Scott walking his army down my streets though... I'll keep my redneck cops.

Yes, but a lot of stupid cops get a lot of people killed or almost killed, and still get off scott free or with minimal punishment.
(driving while typing on a computer, accidentally firing their weapon while handcuffing someone, pointing their weapons at unarmed people on the street.)
Logic apparently isn't a big thing to a lot of police :s
Might not get rid of all of them, but it'll get rid of a lot of them.
