Such priceless imagery; lily white filthy rich couple in front of ostentatious mansion paranoically afraid of the dark hoards of peons who dare to trespass on their precious neighborhood ( peacefully and going to the mayor’s house, not theirs) .
And they had the gall to lie about their intentions afterward. Note that she had her finger on the trigger; poor gun handling don’t put finger on trigger unless you are going to shoot, and don’t point it at anything you don’t want to shoot. He as least kept his finger off the trigger.
Frankly they look so miserably pathetic. This is the poster board for the state of the US.
One problem with the defund the police idea is that rich white people will be hiring their own police forces for their exclusive neighborhoods. Privatization of policing is already a trend-this is not good.
It would be best to look at European models for structuring and training of police. For example, the German police shoot an average of ten people per year, US police shoot around a thousand. Uk police shoot as many in a year as US cops do in a week. There is something wrong with this picture. See dw police-in-germany-kill-more-than-you-think.
" The survey found that Germans trust their cops more than they trust their doctors (80 percent), more than they trust their chancellor (57 percent) and more than twice as much as they trust their printed press (40 percent). Of course unlike the US with its extensive history of violence abroad and at home; Germans have learned their lessons since WWII.
