I think curfews are dumb and should be illegal.

Why illegal? I can see some utility of telling people to calm down a few nights then protest to your hearts content.

You can’t just arbitrarily restrict a free person’s movements.

I don’t know when you guys think of Jim Rome but his first hour on Monday and really the entire show was just perfect and spot on in my opinion.


Def worth a listen. https://podcast.app/jim-rome-hour-e98914909/?utm_source=ios&utm_medium=share

the idea that we aren't going to be able to hire any new police if we fire some of the current ones is laughably stupid.

Very much so. First of all reforms would absolutely attract more minority cops. There's also no reason police departments shouldn't be competing with the armed forces for their best talent.

What reforms?  Shouldn't anybody who wants to make a change want to jump into the PD 30 years ago to help make change?

I'm guessing/hoping you aren't asking me about some rando beat cop or some rando chief making systematic changes to generations of flawed policing in the entire country. That's either really stupid or asked in bad faith.

I'm only asking what reforms you think would attract more minority cops. bolded above.

On the short term, there isn't much that will make any significant impact. The greatest reason that there aren't minority cops is goes all the way back before the country was ever founded, I'd hope you know that. We live in highly segregated areas but have never been allowed to police in the same way. You're not going to overturn hundreds of years of distrust in a matter of months or even years. My mother's generation had to be subjected to cops being the front line in the government pushing back in a battle for civil rights. It's obviously going to be a long and hard transformation, but it has to start somewhere. Here's what I'd do.

1. I would only hire officers that live in my city, especially in metro areas.
2. Police need hiring quotas to assist in representation
3. I balk at busting police unions, but they have been a strong barrier to community policing and representation in police departments.
4. Police departments should invest in education in our cities and not just by putting substations in black neighborhoods. Invest in scholarships, have more programs in small colleges, and not just some community colleges.
5. Partner with secondary schools to have plain clothed officers assist in educational programs. There is a national organization called Jobs for America's Graduates who would be perfect to partner with.
6. Have a presence, plain clothed, no guns, in community events. Host some of these events, block parties, farmers markets in food deserts.

There is literally a eff ton of things they can do if they actually wanted to do so.

I think, hand-in-hand with #6, police should have to walk a beat - with the emphasis on physically walking. They should have to get out of their cars on patrol, so you can see their faces and they are actually out in the community. Talk to kids shooting hoops in the park, stop in and chat with the local business owners, help old ladies cross the road and help carry their groceries, etc. How can you effectively protect and serve people that you don't talk to and don't care about?

Man, you’re killing itt. MIR’s list is also superb.

Gunfire in Wichita

Gun bros showing up in Wichita this evening. ICT has been interesting and really pretty inspiring the past couple of days, but demonstrations have mostly been centered at 21st and Arkansas, 21st and Hillside, which aren't really near the more white-bread areas. I think there has been some stuff downtown.

A demonstration at 21st and Maize tonight is a different story. While I'm hopeful for the best, I can really see things turning south here.

here's a different perspective from Boots Riley who is a full-on true proud communist and is pretty extreme even for me (thread):


I still enjoy reading his thoughts

It’s becoming clear that a lot of non-black people who are upset about their station in life are trying to exploit this event for their own selfish reasons and it’s fuckn pathetic

There are always usurpers. This is one of the more disgusting displays.

who is the non-black person here? me?

I’m not referring to posters on this board.

Same.

QAnon vs Anonymous is an intriguing under-card in all of this.

This is an impressive mount of days of protests in so many cities. How long does this go? What ends it (not the military dumb trump)?

What specific demands need to be met? Not asking you personally, of course.

Interested in how 2nd amendment stuff will play out in all of this. I expect to be disappointed.

Have the MAGAs and the anti-murder-by-cop crossed paths yet?
