In this day where people keep saying we should reduce the number of police on the streets, there is actually a good way, or actually three ways to do this. Moreover, I think you will find that most law enforcement officers will agree with me.
First, stop abusing drugs. If people stopped abusing drugs, crime in the country would plummet by at least 50%. This is not just a personal opinion. I have discussed it with many officers and an assistant district attorney. If you doubt me, do some of your own soliciting.
People who are on drugs commit crimes. Desperate people trying to buy drugs commit crimes. People selling drugs commit crimes. Then, of course, there are those who smuggle drugs. Do I really need to tell you that they commit crimes?
If people stop using or buying illegal drugs, the crime related to them would go away. It would decrease the need for police, for doctors, for lawyers and courts. It sounds like a good idea to me. Oddly, the democrats put little effort into decreasing drugs abuse. They seem to like them coming across the borders and they love to have them in the hands of our youth. Maybe they don’t want to admit it, but look what they do. Look what they are in favor of. They like to push the agenda of Black Lives Matter. The truth is, to them, no life matters. It is all about the power and they don’t care who dies. With the drugs being sold on the street, they gain power.
The second way that will decrease the need for police is family abuse. It is sort of tied into the drug abuse thing. People high on drugs, especially alcohol are far more likely to abuse wives and children than sober people.
I do not know what the percentage of police calls are related to family abuse, but it is common knowledge that family abuse calls are some of the most dangerous an officer will ever see.
The third is a simple word, respect. This means respect for our nation, our laws, other people and yes, especially for those that are paid to enforce the law. From time to time, I might have argued with a traffic officer, but I always respect them. Not only do they deserve our respect but if we don’t respect them, then we will fail as a nation.
Perhaps that is what the democrats hope for. After all, it is all about power. If the current system fails, then they stand in a position to take over and assume the power. AND I ASSURE THEY WILL ABUSE THAT POWER.
