Making that huge cut to the LAPD budget and demonizing police is working out just fine!

Going to be fascinating tracking the statistics covering crime, poverty, median income, mobility, home ownership, health and wealth of minorities, health insurance coverage and general satisfaction over the next four years. Particularly looking forward to the one in 2024 that asks ‘Do you feel better off than you did four years ago?”.

Listen, when I say "defund the police," I don't mean I want the police decreased or scaled back. I just want resources directed from the police into things like more mental health workers. All those guns that were shot could've been avoided with a more proactive and targeted approach to mental health. Can you imagine how safe we would be if everyone had to have an evaluation every couple of years like how we do with driver's licenses?

This is about the fact that 50% of the city has no job. This is a local issue that stems from the national failure.

I know let's just put more guns on the street that'll fix it. Redneck logic 101

Hard for conservative to clutch their pearls when they are fear mongering about violence in cities while they dont care about thousands of people dying every day from Corona. No one cares about your aggrievment.

"Great job" Defunding the Police you Corrupt Leftist Political Hacks in LA and California at large. Signs of the Clown Party 🤡 at work again, to the detriment of law-abiding citizens who are now unsafe in their own communities.

Defund the police and gun control nationwide. If the police can just concentrate on true crimes like shootings, robberies and rapes then they would probably have less shooting instead of sending police out for traffic tickets and health checks. Plus you have a rise of shooting in LA and mall shootings and school shootings. What does it take to create change in this country? You definitly need gun contro and for any of you who say “the criminals are going to get guns anyway”. That’s what the police are actually for and if say they can’t do it then defund them completely.

Oh great everybody is now a police/Homicide expert and will incorrectly evaluate correlation data as a causation. Oh yes, the over budgeted LAPD somehow doesn’t have funds to conduct policing 🙄

If they are trying to catch Chicago homicides. Keep up the same work ethic so far. Just ignoring it and blaming police works out well to increase the homicides.
