    • Money should be spent on services that, over time, reduce the need for police. Community services need to come first, defunding of police should come later as the need for police diminishes. To start by defunding police forces before there are adequate community services is crazy.

  • As a BTS fan, I am really glad that they donated to the cause, knowing that as international celebrities they can encourage other people to support the issue. But I have been a kpop fan for almost 15 yrs, and I have followed many kpop artists that donated to BLM way before BTS did like, Jay Park, Mark Tuan, Amber Liu. Day6, and so on. I am proud of being a BTS fan, but I do believe that people should also recognize other Kpop artists for their efforts as well.

Eugene does have a TON of police problems tho. Cahoots is great, but the cops here have a history of abusing homeless people and they have recently been getting violent at peaceful protests around the county. Even with this program, we have a long way to go

  • My city was rated the 2nd safest city in Florida and still has a 200 million dollar budget going to the police department and only 5 million going to physical and mental health related funding. The average age for my area is 65 and there’s healthcare everywhere you turn... see how messed up that is?

    Catie BCatie B4 mánuðum síðan
  • The sentiment of defunding the police is good. I think there’s a dangerous idealism in a really specific aspect of it that I’ve seen people posting about, that being that some people are assuming that major crimes like bank robbery and murders simply won’t happen if we address issues like mental health and poverty more. Ultimately, you can’t fix everyone’s situation to that point and you can’t predict those things. I don’t think we’re likely to be without a police force of some shape that can handle crimes like that, but the mentality that we can prevent everything through social work and advocacy is destructive.

  • To the NFL story: People protest this issue violently cause their frustration reached a breaking point & the rhetoric is that they are just being destructive & the right way to do it is peacefully. Yet when Kaepernick did that they give him shit. This all leads to the conclusion that they do want to ignore you, & protesting violently & kneeling before a game where TV screens will broadcast you makes that difficult. Here's the thing though, when other shit start's permeating the issue, that's how shit loses its way. You wanted the NFL to apologise. You Gave Them The Words To Use. They did what you wanted but you're now moving the goal-post so to speak. Get that 'outrage culture' mentality out of your head

  • I'm all for police defunding. Reallocating resources into services that deal with non-violent situations can help mentally ease communities. However, when there is a school shooting, robbery, or any violent situation, police should still be used so I do not agree with the gradual police abolishment.

    KatKat5 mánuðum síðan
  • I agree with utilizing the money being overspent on superfluous things being allocated to suffering communities, low budget public schools, after school programs, etc, but should we not also look into getting to the root of the issue? Funding for better on-going training of officers? Funding for mandatory psychological evaluations for officers with performance reviews? We can’t turn a blind eye to the fact that there will still be crime and corrupt officers. Shouldn’t there also be funding to properly train officers continuously and systems in place to hold officers accountable? We all want change for the right thing guys, this is such an important movement. We should exhaust all resources on a continuum to ensure the best safety for everyone and what better way than to have proper funding for both those in need and those carrying guns.

  • It's easy to think that stories like Breonna Taylor's "popped up because of these protests." It is in fact the other way around. These protests arouse from a month filled with stories of the murders of Black Americans. The murder of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd were mere weeks apart. These stories may have felt like they "popped up" for some, but these are just three in the thousands that weight heavily in the minds and hearts of Black Americans daily.

    SifuTeddieSifuTeddie5 mánuðum síðan
  • There seems to be a huge miss understanding when many people talk about defund the police. Police officers tend to be at least at the beginning people that want to help society, seemingly in a co-dependent way. The police have been asked to pick up the slack for the defunding or under funding of other social programs like behavioral health. In a co-dependent relationship the co-dependent person, or in this situation the police, get self-worth in feeling they are protecting or having positive influence on the other person. When police are being told they aren’t achieving their desired goal it can be understandable they feel offended because it gives them a negative perspective of their self-worth. Just like a person in a relationship the co-dependent person will lash out at their partner, in this instance society, for their feelings/pride being hurt. This in no mean implies that all police officers are bad people, but that changes need to be made a sustainable relationship. The unhealthy relationship between the police and many portions of society will continue to spiral out of control if the issues are not addressed. In a relationship when healthy boundaries and expectations are not established clearly the relationship can become toxic as the relationship of police and many people in society.

  • when you mention defunding the police it's also important to mention how much time and money police waste on petty crimes and shit police shouldn't be dealing with in the first place. I don't really understand how abolishing police would work--we would just have to make a new "not-police" police department to handle actual crime. That might not be a terrible idea--get rid of their racist beginnings, the well-established failings of the department, require better training and education and vetting to make sure you're getting upstanding, capable officers. But a better police department is still a police department. As far as defunding goes. More funds for sure need to be allocated to doing something more productive than punishing homelessness and drug use. Something needs to be done about private prisons and modern day slavery. Massive police budgets have effectively proven that the "something" is definitely not more police, so it only makes sense to try something else now. In many cities, the police have developed a reputation of mishandling or exacerbating issues with mental health crisis, domestic disputes, homelessness, sexual assault, and hate crimes. In my experience as well, in the three times I have called the police; the rapist was never convicted, the arsonist was never caught, and my suicidal relative still struggles with mental illness. A functional system would catch rapists and murderers and reform thieves and druggies. Our system has for some reason thousands of untested rape kits instead, while our prisons are full of guys who smoked weed. Defunding means fewer but better officers focusing on genuinely dangerous criminals instead of hoards of uneducated, egotistical officers finding reasons to harass the already underprivileged. It means social workers and mental health responders doing those jobs well, instead of police doing those jobs poorly. It means support systems in place to reduce nonviolent crimes and freeing up the police to actually handle the crimes we need them to handle. This entire conversation stretched so far beyond just funding, though. I don't know where to begin with police accountability, reparations that were never made, how americans are taxed, how those dollars are spent, the distribution of wealth, the unchecked capitalism that has built an oligarchy under our noses, our education systems, our healthcare systems, our prison system--it's overwhelming. We have so much to dismantle and rebuild if we want to catch up to modern countries. I hope this movement will start moving us forward, instead of just destroying all order. Eliminating the problematic is just the first step. We need people to think about what comes next.

  • So for the situation that gets brought up that crimes will go up and things will get more dangerous. "IF" the police force is to be defunded and that money is sent to schools, hospitals ECT. The best solution is to start arming people. No I don't mean hand them a gun. I mean arm people with the knowledge to defend themselves. Be more aware of your surroundings. Know how to physically defend yourself. Also yes get a firearm and know when to use it. We can no longer have the mindset that someone is going to save us. We have to know how to save ourselves and the people around us in trouble.

  • How does taking money from police and giving it to community things actually help anyone? It seems like these people want to fund community-based groups as a preventative measure against crime, but it's still going to happen. There still needs to be someone responsible for responding to criminal activities and dealing with potentially violent criminals. I don't see how funding church groups and the like is going to actually protect anybody. Sure, it might help to keep people on the right path and maybe allow for limited nonviolent response to disputes, but violent crime is inevitable, and someone needs to be available (and have the necessary funding) to respond to those sorts of things in a timely manner. Bad people exist in the world, and no amount of hand-holding is going to change this.

Think of it like this. if someone in Minneapolis tries to call the cops because someone is breaking into their home, and there are no police at all to respond, because the Department was defunded and the cops were kicked out, what Happens if that person is killed? Who's responsible for that?? The Dems want nothing but chaos.

  • I think when someone's trying to say/do the right thing it's sometimes scary to say anything in fear that it may come off wrong or it may leave out what some deem an important part of the ideas or movement as a whole. I think you can't scream and yell and curse out people for not publicly announcing or publicly following your belief if when they do, you then pick apart that statement showing where they're wrong or insensitive or being stupid about the situation. Y'all need to pick a lane and learn creative criticism or better ways to show someone how they are wrong rather than sound like a scorned wife by saying "what about this","what about that","you clearly don't get it if you left out this". They're trying and you're still jumping people's case almost as if you want to pull the race card on anyone at the drop of a hat. And when i say "y'all" i mean anyone willing to attack just on a whim or argue because your group is currently the upper hand. Don't abuse the power, act like you been there before.

  • Oh, I didn't expect my hometown to come up in this! I'm from Eugene, Oregon and Cahoots is very well run and helpful. They regularly assist with situations involving the homeless and people who may otherwise not get the help they need medically from police in situations where the police could get on them for drugs or trespassing. They also work with local police in situations where the subject seems to require counseling or medical help. They often start by separating the person from public and then work exclusively with them. They're a great start when it comes to defunding police and they actually genuinely help people.

  • While I do like our CAHOOTS program, Eugene has major issues (drug use/sale, mental health, homelessness) that the city hasn't been able to get its arms around, regardless of police or CAHOOTS intervention and available social services. Not proposing a solution here whatsoever, and not saying CAHOOTS isn't a great supplement to EPD or that more money shouldn't go towards social sevices, I'm just saying that Eugene, truthfully, isn't the town to be idealizing, given that we have one of the highest crime rates in America compared to communities of similar sizes. The drug use/sale and criminal behavior is blatant and practically ubiquitous, aside from a couple of small neighborhoods. I can't say to what extent, if any, our system in town did or did not help the issues it is experiencung. I can, however, after six years of living here, say that things don't work here either.

  • As an Australian who doesn't have boots on the ground, and little-to-no investment in what's going on, both of the above are ABSOLUTELY necessary, though the scale is definitely something that needs to be judged by those who take up the responsibility of oversight. The mere fact that areas like D.C. that have relatively-small populations can afford to have officers in full riot gear and ARMORED VEHICLES rolling down the streets, only goes to show that all that money is being wasted on prosecuting and intimidating innocent protesters, as opposed to medical supplies like ventilators that doctors in NY were having to jury-rig to work for more than one person at a time to try and save more lives. The mere fact that Officers like Derek Chauvin can have THAT MANY complaints and NOT be fired for it, only goes to show that money is NOT being put into proper training, as opposed to the evangelical ranting done by religious lunatics who believe the police should be warriors and hunters (of non-existent slaves, presumably) rather than guardians of the people they swear to serve. (See HBO's Police Accountability video) Of course, I'm not sure that Abolishing the police is a WISE idea, but it has become increasingly-obvious that systemic racism is a thing, has BEEN a thing for a great deal of time, and shows no sign of naturally dissipating without direct intervention by AT LEAST one level of government. Even if the new organisation is mostly-identical, just having a good shake-up and clearing away all the bad apples would be WELL worth it. The REAL question, is what it's replacement is going to look like, and what it's job will be. Personally, I think the biggest issue is a refusal for the Old Boys Club to fire and arrest those who commit crimes and allowing them to disrespect their badges by hiding behind them, followed by misappropriation of funding for dumb shit like APC's that no mere police for should EVER have access to, as opposed to simple training that the police simply don't get supplied with.

  • Being in a country where the police are defunded and well 40% of women in my country will be raped at least once just for starters. I really hope America understands what its going live in without law enforcement.

  • People keep talking about a racist system, but can never specify what system is racist. Getting tired of this bullshit narrative being pushed onto everyone. Furthermore, it just creates this victim mentality that because of your skin color you are being treated differently, not because that person turns out to be an asshole... so now people are using the "racism" card against anyone who treats them differently, so sad. Floyd's death is being used in order to create a race war. Keep your eyes open to the truth and think for yourself.

  • You know, I'm all for researching the issues and making sure you're not "strawmanning" people. But honestly "Defund the Police!" sounds like an anarchist slogan. I mean if you don't pay for something anymore, that thing tends to cease to exist. If "moderate reformers" just want to reallocate budget money and still have some cops, why use such extreme rhetoric then?

  • Abolish the police is an awful idea. If you wanna live in a police vacant place go to Honduras and drop us a line. Defunding is a terrible word to use and needs to be redrafted. Police Reform makes way more sense. Don’t let anyone that heads up “BLM” shape this conversation. That group has been pretty deceitful at times and hasn’t represented the black community right. I’m all for reform but remember most cops are good and there’s not a lot you can do other than hurt good cops by pulling funding mostly or entirely.

  • I'm against defunding the cops but I support holding them more accountable for their wrongdoings and based on their offenses/excessive use of force bring down their paychecks down or even do some time if they killed someone even if they didn't mean. To me, that's fair.

  • THANK YOU for talking about both sides of the Kpop fans and culture issue. I studied fandom and LOVE the power that fans have used to further this movement but there are a ton of problematic things in the Korean music industry in general in regards to black culture appropriation (also BTS have used black culture in their music as well which is a different conversation about appropriation; I'm just glad they're doing something to help). Just thanks for talking about all of it.

  • I never thought I'd hear Phil talking about kpop like this and I'm so happy. The internal debate and actions of some companies/idols are really a step in the right direction-it may not be immediate or drastic, but I really hope this situation would have an impact on Korea's own colorism. Also stan Mamamoo XD

  • I really support defunding the LAPD and would be highly interested in other “public safety” departments. I never call the cops on fireworks, sketchy behavior, non violent suspicions, homeless camps, etc because I am terrified of the Cops showing up and escalating a situation, deporting or breaking up a family. It would be great if there was another department that could handle different kinds of situations in which being armed is not necessary for.

  • Go ahead! Abolish the police. Let's see what happens when a gang with guns moves into that gun and police free zone. Also i heard that at Capitol Hill they made a communist community and one week after the founding they are already asking for food, because they are starving.
