defund the police explained in a single meme
@yogthos You could make the exact same meme with "eat the rich".
@yogthos Or perhaps "tax" is better, in the same "moderate" way that "defund" is "better" than "abolish".
@yogthos do you have the source for this meme? :D
@yogthos just need to see if I can find a higher res picture
@maloki @yogthos oldest image http://doubletroubletwo.blogspot.com/2013/11/morning-everyone_13.html
still shitty quality tho
@tagada I meant of the meme not the original image. SOrry if I was unclear.
@yogthos Ah yes, that must be that trickle-down economics thing they keep talking about. That's much clearer now, thanks

@yogthos you forgot "black, brown, indigenous people"
@yogthos I'd say its missing a bit. An unarmed non-crime related incident responce team, who can take wittness statements for insurance purposes and with trained psych staff who can approach and de-escalate problems is another one. Police should only be used when people call in fear for their lives and even then they need experts on hand to ensure it doesn't escalate. If we have homes for everyone it will actually cost tax payers half as much in healthcare and policing costs too. And traffic cops shouldn't be arms and most of them replaced with camera traps spread evenly though the city with fines adjusted for income levels so it hurts everyone equally like they do it in denmark.
@yogthos no, they will simply spend the money on military operations. In addition, there will be an increase in the crime rate.
@yogthos this one is good too
