    Correct.
    It does not mean the end of the police department. It means maybe things like juvenile crime and marital disputes can be settled some other way lessening but not eliminating the need for police resources.

    Reform is needed but budgets should be up to the Mayors. Cities that have less crime than others and there is a wide spectrum can find it easier to lower the cop budget. There are cities that will need to increase their budget as well.
    There are some that want to go to the extreme too and do more than defund....

    They only give us rights when we give them riots. Every fucking time. This isn’t about politeness it’s about justice.

    It also requires videos of incidents. The incidents have been going on for centuries. What's new is the videos.

    We still have a great nation. The politicians have corrupted and polluted the entire leadership structure. Their ass kissing, self serving or dishonest comments coupled with high handed attitude make me sick. If Trump, Pence, Pelosi, Graham would resign, we may feel enthusiasm again.

    Don't mix politics with good times. Your plans may go up in smoke. What end is the roach?
    Besides, in '69, you needed three doobs to get a buzz because low quality weed was usually four finger count/20 bucks.

    I've smoked roaches until they burned my fingers. Then I had an epiphany, I learned to eat the roach before I got burned.

    I'm not so sure that ABM even supports Trump these days. And I know damn well that if it weren't for the abortion issue he would definitely not support Trump.

    All you have to do is look at what he's said without a jaundiced eye.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    He's continually said he supports Trump on a number of issues and he'll be voting for Trump again. ABM may be a nice person one-on-one, but he's willing to support a pretty open bigot.

    He's said in here that he's not so sure about Trump and that if it weren't for the abortion issue Trump would lose his support.
    I think you guys are overlooking some of those statements.

    I said I won't be voting for Biden. I said I have, and would continue to, support John Kasich. He was really my guy all along. I said that Trump does a LOT of things that greatly disappoint and disturb me. I said I support Trump on tough immigration laws (not the separating families aspect, though), 2nd Amendment, Christian freedoms, right-to-life, and other things. I've said many, many things regarding Trump over the years. I'm pretty much a lone soldier in here, I know that.

    I love our AMERICAN flag! I wish those buffoons wouldn't desecrate it like that.
