That is true! A defund the police woman protester calls police after being assaulted by someone at her peaceful rally. Hilarious Yeah, except when exactly after all the extreme damage they've done to citizens doing nothing but protest have cops been the solution to ANYTHING? 911...Hes got a gun Operator ...call the counselor, see if he is mentally stable, then give us a buzz back

This is the solution. You don't need 6 police officers showing up with hands on weapons for every single 911 call. At least 50% of the police should be non-militarized people with negotiating and mental health training. Less police, more negotiators Police officers cannot do everything. They shouldn't be used as a quick band-aid for situations that haven't been thought through.

What kind of crack this asshle smoked? Meanwhile, he sicks the police on everyone, for everything lol.
