    The wonders of democracy. No matter how stupid the idea, it can be tried.

    I already like how some want to keep police but they have to be more carebear. Getting rid of the assholes is not enough. They want police officers to beg the criminals to comply. Give criminals an almost unending time to comply. They would probably expect officers to get hurt before they are authorized to defend themselves.

    Some residents expect a replacement force where the director has zero law enforcement experience and the methods would be based on policing with a holistic community approach. They want more diversified officers even though Kueng, the rookie who had zero authority to override Chauvin, who is also black, was fired.

    One guy here believes community policing means the officer is also a social worker and a psychologist among other skills LOL. The training and schooling required and risk would mean the city would have to offer a pretty hefty salary to balance out the prerequisites.

    Can't wait to see the massive turnover rate of this new force and the inability of them to hire replacements because the demands are sky high but the pay is probably going to be shit.

    It is always white women. My brothers neighbor who is both black and a lesbian tells him that these white women are just doing it because they have jungle fever. They go out there and try to act like these allies to black men in hopes that they will be their girlfriends. I remember my dumb ass cousin who is a far lefty feminist would tell me that she hated men except black men and if she were to date men she would only date black men as their babies are cuter and she also wanted to help raise their races IQ. I looked at her and said; "Goddamn! You have no idea how racist you sound, do you?"
    Yet this is how most of these dumb cunts think.

    It's Honestly really annoying when people strawman the other half of the political spectrum. Just because your cousin is very stupid doesn't mean most people on the left are.

    If you actually read my post I said FAR lefty. There are reasonable people on the Left (my boyfriend is a leftist for fucks sake.) but the far side of the spectrum, just like with the right, leave much to be desired. The reason I go after the far left more is because they are the ones tearing down statues, erasing history, killing people and making everything and everyone go through an ideological purity test.

    Lmao Tearing down statues is not tearing down history. If you take down a statue history it's not gone it's still there in books, websites, newspaper articles etc. Was the history of Saddam Hussein magically erased once his statue was toppled, did Hitlers history disappear as well once his statue was toppled. Do people visit statues to learn history lmao of course not you read books, and consult historical documents etc.

    That is called Slippery slope fallacy
    "A slippery slope argument (SSA), in logic, critical thinking, political rhetoric, and caselaw, is often viewed as a logical fallacy[1] in which a party asserts that a relatively small first step leads to a chain of related events culminating in some significant (usually negative) effect"
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slippery_slope

    More to the point the monuments weren't put up to commemorate history they were put up to reassert authority over the black population. Most were built from 1890-1910's this was at the height of lynchings in the south. Also there was a smaller spike of building statues in the civil rights era. They were meant to glorify them not to show history.

    Is that why abolitionist statues have been torn down?
     
  11. The problem with knee-jerk headlines is that it makes people throw bombs through the fuckin' window.

    MUH SLIPPERY SLOPE, whoever made that a fallacy should be shot in the street, it's always used as a deflection against the logical conclusions to actions. Believe it or not statues have cultural and historical meaning to their countries, historically toppling statues has been done after the people in power aren't a problem any longer. https://www.rferl.org/a/toppled-and-destroyed-statues-and-monuments-from-history/30667614.html
    People said the same thing about gay marriage and whatever your beliefs on that it only allowed far more disturbing things to come into the forefront. It's the same with whats going on now, first it was the confederate statues because THEY LOST LOL ICKY RASCISTS, then it was Jefferson, Washington, Jackson, Roosevelt, Wilson, and Lincoln because UMMM THEY WERE RACIST SWEATY at the drop of a hat, the slope seems more slick with lube than just slippery, comrade.

    Don't you dare try to lecture me about "muh racism" or whatever stupid ass shit you believe. I am part Native American and Jew. You don't see me crying, hurting people or toppling down statues because "the statues glorify the evil white men who stole my ancestors land!" . Also, where is the stupid ass shit of "statues were put up to reassert authority over the black man" coming from? Many of these statues being taken down or desecrated are of Fredrick Douglass and black Union soldiers. Knowing you I bet you have a dumbass excuse for this too.
    From what I have seen of this clown he is a fucking retard. Perhaps he should go over to Twatter. I think the mouth breathers there will be much more welcoming to him.

    Oh of course we should always take Wikipedia seriously. It is not like they have been know to lie or have questionable people or organizations be used as references.
     
  18. This is all a great way to make working class people to vote Republican again.

    The left is probably made up by the government to make sure that no actual leftists take hold.
