Learn to code, if not A, then?  More to the point, if not the current Minneapolis Police Department then what, or if not your current PD then what.  There is no point in abolishing A unless have B that is better.

Lisa Bender President of the Minneapolis City Council wants to abolish, defund, the entire Minneapolis Police Department. Ms. Bender does make one good point. The MPD is note perfect, for example the MPD totally failed Justine Diamond. That was what three years ago, and I don’t recall Ms. Bender calling for the abolition of the MPD at the time.

Ms. Bender

“Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors,” the city council president replied. “And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that [concern] comes from a place of privilege because for those of us for whom the system is working, I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm is done.”

I have a right to my stuff, see Fourth Amendment.  Neither Ms. Bender nor her friends have any right to my stuff.  Moreover, if Ms. Bender et al should deprive me of my stuff I have a right to retrieve it.

I don’t think Ms. Bender knows to where chosen road leads, and I doubt too many American Citizens would willing to follow her.  What say you?
