Op I feel your pain, but if The Wire taught me one thing its that big city police forces are self licking ice cream cones who serve only to siphon resources from the tax payers.

Now on the flip side, I get your frustration. The Do Nothing Dems have allowed extremists to be the loudest voices of criminal justice reform. The intersectional feminists have hijacked the Defund the Police/Abolitionist platform.

As is tradition, they destroy any progress with the movement by injecting soft language ("we need to offer more EMPATHY to our BiPOC sisters and brothers who are trapped in the criminal justice system (despite being violent criminals)" :troll:) and/or 301 level jargon into what should be a simple argument:

Is our legal system producing felons with low recidivism? No.
Are there currently mechanisms to keep people in poorer communities away from crime? No
Soultion: We need to increase programs that improve rehabilitation. We need to target these problematic zip codes with community policing and school to work programs.

Thats it. That simple.

Selling it how the Intersectional Feminists try to sell it is the fastest way to radicalize middle class citizens towards conservatism.

The thing is that the police can't preemptively stop shootings unless they just start correctly guessing who is going to kill someone on a particular day

People usually call police AFTER something already happened.

You would have had to predict that they would start shooting and somehow convince the police to wait for them.

Shooters are everywhere, some have badges some dont. Yesterday an old felon who just got out after 25 yrs sat on our porch for hours. He kept asking about his old enemies who lived in this unit and saying how he used to shoot up our kitchen window. I didn't think he was threatening us just reminiscing. I was a little spooked but we let him know times have changed and a gun dont mean shyt anymore everyone's packing these days.

:snoop: I’m fukked up in the head right now. I’m crying and shyt. As some of you guys know I was raised in Pomonok projects in Queens. My grandmother still lives there and we were visiting her for thanksgiving. I usually stay to take care of her as she’s getting older and tonight as I was taking her from the car 5 shots rang out at us from her building.

And we literally saw three nikkas running on the roof. If we would have gotten there any earlier we would be dead right now.

I can’t stand this shyt anymore. I ain’t never seen the hood this bad and I lived here through the 90’s. My grandmother is trying to calm us down but I’m so pissed off.

Adams needs to increase the police budget because these nikkas are out of control

Glad you're ok.

I suggest trying to convince grandma to move to a safer location if it's at all possible.

It’s like these nikkas don’t care who they shooting at. I know for a fact on of the three shooters is in his mid thirty’s because we went to high school together. fukking goofies out here I swear man.
Since you know him, you should tell the police and make the community safer. You can tell them anonymously.

Crime is definitely one of the highest it’s ever been right now. The advancement in medical treatment helping keep the murder rates down in la and nyc is making alot of people blind to it. But pretty much every other major city outside of LA, NYC and DC is putting up crack era numbers

What would increasing the police budget have done in this situation? Sorry you went through that but your prompt doesn’t make sense.
tougher policing has shown to reduce crime.
it always gets met with people complaining about "too much police" so it ends up like a seesaw.

crime goes down but profiling or whatever makes the news...
...people start to vote in politicians that promise to change the harsh policing...
...eventually crime goes back up and people vote in tough on crime people...
...and we keep going back and forth

We’ve tried that it never works with her. For most of her adult life all she knows is Pomonok.

Theres gotta be a way

Be careful. Think it through. If you recognized him he may have recognized you and that would further jeopardize your family. I'm not suggesting one course of action or another other than to secure your grandmother's safety

In 2022 I'm literally prepared for bullets anywhere. Elementary schools are getting blasted by incels and children are regularly killed by cop "misfires". I pray it doesnt happen but possibly getting hit by a fatal stray is something I've come to terms with in life. Police are just not helping anyone but themselves.

Just wanted to leave a comment saying that you are a good man for always taking note of your grandmother's safety.

Defund the police is some made propaganda to distract people from holding killer cops accountable for the their action and violence towards black people..
How does refunding them stop them from killing black people and violence towards black people.

if these dudes was fired like the civilian sector, all that shyt would end imo,,,,,, if we did the same shyt at work , we would be fired and in prison, and no longer able to pass backgrounds checks to get hired again


glad you are okay op !!
