Time To Take Out The Garbage.

It’s stinking up America and a health hazard to all.

This will work as long as the worst cops are laid off to meet the budget. That is the real problem: firing bad cops. The problem is most police chiefs are bad like most cops. Camden NJ had the right idea: fire the whole PD and get a new one.

Ending the war on drug users would be a good start.

The simple fact of a city devoting such a large portion of their budget to one department involving increased weaponization, is destructive to all other aspects of societal needs within that community.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, "We the People do not need Enforcers of the Law, We must have Guardians of the Peace."

The two Atlanta cops that killed the man for falling asleep in a drive-thru, could have bought him a coffee and had a donut with him instead.
