No again, I asked you to breech this river of pseudo intellectual pablum, to highlight just how dangerous it is to placate the criminals, and anarchists that were driving the opportunist outbreak last night. Look, it was dangerous for anyone that wasn't a black resident to enter these areas BEFORE the riot last night, largely because the police were undermanned and over taxed....So, please don't try and give me the 'kinder, gentler' approach....Balto has a gang problem, and a drug problem...To lessen the police footprint is to give up.You're talking POST incident, I'm saying curtailing the aggressiveness PRE incident will remove possible excuses for these criminals to take over in the first place.
What does that even mean? Because what I read in that sentence is do nothing while we all get together and talk, talk, talk....Meanwhile the city is destroyed....Fundamentally, however, the reasons why those criminals and thugs exist in such large numbers needs to be addressed.
More dead cops won't help either, but I know, that's not as important as protecting the poor misunderstood thug....Maybe some chocolate chip cookies will help....But cops killing more people, that will only cause it to get worse. And once it's started, you're screwed because now you have to respond with more aggressive policing and the cycle of hate and aggression and violence takes over.
Less policing = More crime. That's a fact.We cannot allow that cycle to establish and that means, in part, curtailing police activities prior so that you don't get Baltimore's or Ferguson's in the first place.
On that we agree...This sort of powder keg explosions need to stop.
Wow, you touched all the catch phrase nothing speak right there....You should have just said pay reparations.You also then have to address the socio-economical problems that plague our inner cities and crime ridden areas in order to try to produce more positive community interactions and decrease criminal activity.
Ok, so, weeding through the babble, this is what I hear from you....None of which is a "wave the wand" sort of system where we can magically cure it. It will take time and effort, but if we do it right we will end up all the better for it.
Weaken police authority
Hope that the criminal element won't take advantage
More give away's
Leave more innocent citizens vulnerable to crime.
In short...Make our urban cities less safe....All because you don't like the 'oh so scary' military look of riot police....
Where am I wrong?
