Can someone explain the logic of defunding the police ?

You're upset about police brutality so you think defunding the police is the solution?

Defunding means cops will have fewer resources and will have to work harder and longer hours. That will cause them to be stressed out which will likely lead to more brutality. It will also lead to more situations where cops are alone and make mistakes out of fear.

The reality is George Floyd would probably still be alive if the Minneapolis Police Department had been properly funded. Officer Chauvin had been going through a lot in his personal life and probably shouldn't have been out on the street that day. His mind was probably distracted and likely he had a lot of anger. He should have been able to take a few days off or at least sit at a desk for a few days but Minneapolis apparently didn't have the resources for that.

    The logic, where it exists, goes like this: If people were just left alone to ride unicorns and eat ambrosia (as provided by the mythical "1%") there would be no crime and therefore no need for policing.

    Yes with what cops are today.  Citizens are fed up with them & there actions & mouths.  So wish to be rid of such off there streets. They can not take any more of the cops & what they have turned into.  So they half to go!

    With what American cops have been allowed to be.  Citizens fear being in there sight.  So no need to pay or keep such as they are. It is not that they do not want police.  It is they have no use left for what the cops today are.

    Look at all these lovely cities that are planing on, discussing doing it.  Violent crime rates are takeing leaps and bounds up. Soon we will be back to the late 70's /80's numbers again. Soon we will be back to every time one leaves their homes in these cities, they will have to fear being mugged, or worse.
