We don't have a functional society because the majority of the population is living paycheck-to-paycheck with no social safety net. The police have failed to provide justice in any city in this country. This is systemic, not the result of the wrong guy being in charge.

And how does stripping the police of funding bring a balance or tip the scales back towards justice ?

They're trained to shoot POC, not white people. Obviously. If you're white and have a gun, you're fine. This has been more than proved with the events of the last 24 hours.

I'm fucking disgusted and over this shit. I don't know what to do except spiral deeper into depression, but I guess I'll try not to do that.

How many times did the police in Kenosha run past this 17 year old with a gun who murdered two people? You can see that in the video.

The DA said today that Jacob Blake admitted to the police that he had a knife in his car. No other weapons were found. Police claim they tried to stop him with a taser and it didn't work. So one of them grabbed him by the shirt and shot him in the back seven times at point blank range. 17 year old white kid with a very large gun, just run past him while people are screaming that he killed people. Nothing unequal there. He made it back to Illinois, not shot by police.


VERNON HILLS, Ill. (CBS) — A 17-year-old boy is in police custody in north suburban Lake County, charged as a fugitive in connection with a shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, that left two people dead and another wounded.

Kenosha County authorities issued an arrest warrant for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, on Wednesday morning, charging him with first-degree intentional homicide.

Rittenhouse was arrested later Wednesday morning in Antioch, and he was taken to the Lake County Juvenile Detention Center near Vernon Hills. An extradition hearing has been scheduled for Friday.

They should just lock this piss ant in a room with the family members of the folks he killed without his overcompensation AR-15 and save the cost of a trial. He can wear his Crocs.

We should all take note that Tucker Carlson defending him this evening.

Because it’s understandable when white people murder others to restore order.

Honestly, go to hell, Tuck.

Given the lawlessness of Democrat-run cities, is it any surprise that 17-year old boys will take up arms to restore some sense of order in this crazy world?

I’m not kidding.

Keep screaming. Apathy is easy and allows it to continue unfortunately.

He's a sick depraved individual. You want to believe that some of those people on Fox are playing a character for purposes of ratings and political agenda. Look at Hannity, it's in that new Brian Stelter book about Fox that Hannity calls Trump crazy. All the while kissing Trump's ass and advising him.

They're all a bunch of amoral hos, selling what's left of their souls. But I think Tucker is even worse than that. Despicable guy.

The police chief in Kenosha said that the Croc killer wouldn't have murdered people if the curfew was obeyed. Where is the chief's statement regarding the officers allowing this 17 year old to shoot and kill people, unchallenged? CNN showed video of officers handing out bottled water to these agitators. He got all the way back to Illinois unchallenged.

So chief can't be serious-enforcing the curfew includes bottled water? Video of Croc killer with his hands up walking towards police-and they did nothing!

Of course there is the whole other issue of a 17 year old being legally permitted to walk around with that gun in public, which I read that he was.

Because you use that part of the budget to fund the things that actually combat crime: combatting poverty. You fund education and public services. It's not rocket science. Does it change everything overnight? No. But it's the path you need to go down if any of this is ever going to work. There are no other options unless you want this cycle to continue forever.

Poverty causes crime, so combat poverty.

Where the left fucks up is not being able to explain that without it sounding like we're going to get rid of police departments and just let things be an orderless hellscape for a few years until the systemic changes we need are in place.

Which sounds stupid, but we are generally a stupid country.

People understood "defund Planned Parenthood" just fine when that was the right wing calling card. Saying that people don't get the messaging seems like a deflection from people who still see the police as a net positive with a few bad apples, and are afraid that they'll be robbed if suddenly every police force isn't a SWAT team. There's a vast amount of difference between what we have and anarchy. Acting like the right has a point when they say defunding the police equals anarchy basically just cedes the argument to them every time. And so the cycle continues.

While I’m not saying the police budgets shouldn’t be looked into and reallocated

Couldn’t we get more bang for our buck in social programs by focusing more on corporate tax rates, and if we’re going to defund something, how about the military budget ?

I think the left can be a little more sneaky about reallocating police funding and focusing more on easier targets like corporations or the 1%

Unfortunately if the Dems were to sweep in November and make these large scale “defunding” changes, most of america freaks out at taxes!!!! And then puts the GOP in Congress and we repeat this stupid ass cycle
