Nah, fuck that. If conservatives go wobbly because Trump doesn't raise his pinky at tea, give the left everything they want.
Wealth redistribution, gun control, abortion expansion and funding, reparations, federal control over ever facet of life.

I'm willing to fight the good fight, but I'm done with society electing the left to feel smug and self-satisfied and hoping like hell that the right restrains their lunatic impulses, all while they wail and moan that gridlock caused by an evil opposition is halting the march to utopia.
You want the left, you get the left. Full stop.

so abolish the police; then just send a small group of people to Rapinoe's house and break in ; loot everything.

God these people are dumb. It's astounding.

Defunding the police is nonsense overreaction. I don't sense it's anything more than a fringe message.

It's also difficult to take the outrage seriously from anyone who screams about welfare and fiscal conservatism yet turns a blind eye to the massive overreach of the prison industrial complex.

These are extreme ideas and the ideal solution, as with so many things, lies in the middle. First we have to admit there are things that are clearly broken and need to change.

Reduce incarceration. Invest instead on social programs aimed at reducing recidivism and making people more productive (skills training, drug rehab, etc.) That includes completely rethinking the outrageous costs of the drug war.

Cut down broken windows policing and have police instead spend more time on community building

Increase training spend which will pay for itself by taxpayers not wasting money on officers making costly mistakes

There you go. You've significantly reduced criminal justice spend while making police stronger.

Welfare reform is certainly something that should also be on the table. By the way I consider unnecessary incarceration to be a form of welfare.

"Defunding the police" will never happen. Reworking the police, maybe. Ending the war on drugs at the federal level would be a good start.

:-) Such a cliche about the middle.

Some ideas in the middle don't work either. Let's take the Clinton Crime Bill of 1994 which some claim led to mass incarceration and prison overcrowding. Bill was considered a moderate even if most Republicans voted against it. It was originally written by Senator Joe Biden. Afterall, Hilldawg called them all "predators." So Democrat policy, has led to this mess. It also increased federalization of cops by funding 100,000 more of them, billions for prevention programs— NONE of which the congress has any authority to do under the Constitution. You rarely advocate following the Constitution to prevent such things—something REAL conservatives claim to support and do but get labeled "do nothing" or "extremist" when they do. However, that's the real middle. So this was not a law that was middle at all.

Policing MUST remain local. You want it to return to being more gentle like the fictional Mayberry—that's the way to go.
And get rid of the military vehicles too.

May disagree with the idea that 39% of incarceration is unnecessary. But lays a good starting point for discussing what is unnecessary. Like many nonviolent offenses, people serving overreaching prison sentences, horrible recidivism... And how many offenses would rehab and training have been a much better and even cheaper alternative than throwing the book? On top of the growing consensus that many small drug crimes are unnecessary and overaggressively prosecuted.

The middle is not between left and right. Both left and right are complicit in the prison industrial complex. It's the middle between respecting we are a nation of laws and recognizing we are overreaching on enforcement of those laws.

Not according to the vote tallies of who voted for the Clinton Crime Bill. Plus "private jails, prisons, and detention centers have a long history in the U.S., as far back as 1852 when San Quentin was the first for-profit prison in the U.S., long before it was state-owned."

Your "middle" line is just that, a line. But calling for the "middle" doesn't say anything—anything at all because "middle" is not described here. Middle of what? We normally think of it between the two parties, claimed to be left and right.

I hope you use better lines to pick-up girls.
