  • Detroit Rejects Defunding The Police By 3-1 Margin

    Wassup, I thought these cities wanted fewer of these racist whtie supremacist white hood wearing cops?





    "Amid a jump in violent crime in this and other cities nationwide, Detroit residents report being much more worried about public safety than about police misconduct, a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University/Detroit Free Press Poll finds.

    By an overwhelming 9-1, they would feel safer with more cops on the street, not fewer. While a third complain that Detroit police use force when it isn't necessary – and Black men report high rates of racial profiling – those surveyed reject by 3-1 the slogan of some progressives to "defund the police."

    "The poll found a significant racial divide on the issue. Black residents ranked crime at the top of their list of concerns: 24% cited public safety, just 3% police reform.

    But white residents were a bit more concerned about police reform than public safety, 12% compared with 10%. Education was by far the biggest issue on their minds, named by 31%."

      They do, but we want that accomplished by purging the white racist cops from the force, by punishing cops when they commit crimes, by offering more trainings to deescalate and less spent on military style weapons and by changing the model of policing since the initial model was a mechanism to catch and return former slaves.

      Instead if you agreeing with that plan, because after all you’re not a racist white supremacist according to you, instead you make an extreme interpretation of “defund the police” to suggest black people want no police of any sort and want police officers as a whole abolished.

      You do this even though you know this isn’t the case. Then you go out of your way to find an extreme opinion to use that as justification for you purposely false interpretation of what people are really asking for.

      How about you just have a straight up discussion about what people truly want, again since you’re not a white racist supremacist according to you, rather than frame this in the partisan, politicized, dishonest, white fear mongering Trump Republican interpretation of their position.

          I remember over here in Oakland, black community held a support the police rally.

          A lot of black kids have been getting shot and Oakland city giving pd a hard time.

          All these dumb ass clueless white ppl came there to protest the cops.

          The blacks were like "gtfo".

          They were trying to explain cops and the hood to these black ppl.

          Dumbasses.

            Why do you always do this, you gaslight and pretend the words you choose dont mean exactly what they're meant to mean. Marxism doesn't mean Communism, Defund the police does not mean less police.

            Stop gaslighting Dunn, and stop trying to repackage a slogan that was met with overwhelmingly negativity into something more palatable. The majority, particularly black majority moreso than white majority are not on board with defunding the police.

              Dude when you act stupid you lose the right to get upset when I treat you the way you act.

              You know what defund the police really is about. You choose to act otherwise for 2 reasons:
              1. To admit the real movement would be to admit systemic racism exists and you don’t want to do that.
              2. By purposely going to with the extreme false interpretation, you can pretend you’re bigoted opinion on this is a reaction to extremism when it’s just simply a lack of desire to admit people have been the victims of the racist practices inherent in the policing model in this country.

              The other way you know you’re fake is you have access to people like Jim Clyburn, a black man that actually works on the party platform, coming out and saying this warped interpretation will never be the party’s official platform for the reason you cited in your post. Yet you will ignore that, find some far left extremist, usually with a Muslim sounding name, and act like that extreme position would ever be part of the party platform, knowing it would fail for the reason you cite in your post- black voters opposition.

              So you clearly get from a political position and your ability to read that the extreme position is not the one the people that drive the party platform would ever make the policy EVER because it would alienate one of the party’s main voting blocks-black voters, a point you make above.

              so stop the fake tears because I am not gaslighting you. You always get mad when White male Trump supporters are treated like inbred, imbecilic red neck dumbasses. then you, a dude that isn’t anything like that, that is smart and gets it but hates liberals so much that they get caught up in the BS, post sh-t like this and then get mad at me because I don’t allow you to play dumb Jim.

                Hey man serious question here. And I'm not trying to even make a point or argue anything per se. Just curious as to what your opinion would be.

                We all know there's bad cops out there. And unfortunately probably no shortage of them. But of all the police officers out there who abuse their power, do you feel as if the vast majority of them are white? Is it your opinion that a large percentage of white officers wake up in the morning and have a seething hatred of black people -- and that they just want nothing more than to arrest/harass/beat any black folks they can get their hands on?

                  No, which is why I said get rid of racist cops and try one that commit crimes.

                  I can’t answer who do or don’t have hatred of black people. It’s not about feelings, it’s about outcome. The system functions in a way that those with those attitudes are allowed to stay active and influence others as they take leadership positions and gain seniority.

                  Again, the police were started to capture runaway slaves. That is Inherent in the dna of any police organization and is a problem for many people, and fairly so IMO.

                  Another issue is many police are ex military. Veterans that serve the country deserve employment upon their return. The problem is in Combat, it is necessary to protect yourself to assume any non American could be a terrorist or enemy. When you bring that mentality to the police force, it very often becomes that black people in urban areas are the new enemy. The issues arises when that overseas mentality is used on the job.

                  I don’t see how ridding the police force of racists, bigots and criminal cops is even an issue that rational, fair minded people can’t agree on.

                    Hey I would like nothing more than for this country -- actually the world for that matter, to be rid of all bad cops. Regardless of skin color. There are lots of bad cops out there, from every race, whom exist in every country on earth. But yes at the end of the day I absolutely agree and wish that they did not exist.
