Opinion: bringing communities out of poverty requires MORE police, not less. When communities become safe, businesses feel safe to invest, people can begin jobs and building the community up. This, in conjunction with better police procedures is needed. The defund the police movement is going to harm the people it claims to advocate for

Defund the police is the wrong phrase. They really mean de-militarize the police departments. I agree that more community-based policing is needed, esp if it’s coupled with communication and de-escalation trainings.

Businesses investing don't really help. Think about who owns the businesses. Not people from within the community. So the money they spend just gets vacuumed out. If a Walmart opens, or a Starbucks, or a McDonald's, the profits the earn just leave. Think about the jobs they offer. Predominantly minimum wage. No one gets out of poverty on minimum wage. The problem isn't businesses don't invest in these areas.

A lot of communities that are impoverished in major cities have been over-policed for the past few decades. Policing does not address the root of crime, which is often poverty. The defund the police movement has the right idea of investing money in these communities by way of non-police resources. You’re not going to fix impoverished communities with more police. They also don’t have the resources themselves to create their own business and generate that kind of wealth. Increased police presences will not fix poverty. Usually it puts more people from the community in jail and makes that uphill climb out of poverty even harder.

No he’s not wrong. A lot of activists have been and currently are pushing for total abolition and the removal of the police. That’s where the term really got its legs.

Honestly we should be happy to not police areas that don’t want them there. Let the businesses leave and wait for them to be begging for police back. People seriously need to learn that calling for cops’ heads is not the most effective way to reform police departments.

PM1... police shot 15 unarmed african americans last year. Out of a population of 300 million. Each of those deaths is a tragedy, but it hardly indicates a systemic, existential problem. What fantasy world do you live in? “The police are a significant part of the conditions that create poverty” are you actually insane? How can you say that with a straight face? Go sit in a corner

Time doesn’t flow backwards. At this point with the way law enforcement has been militarized, the presence of more police in some of these communities is just a hammer looking for a nail.

I'll believe in community policing when I see that work for child sex trafficking

It requires more of an investment in the community, infrastructure, education, etc
