Reimagining Public Safety Needs 180 Turnaround

by | Jul 20, 2020 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Exactly what do the newest buzz terms mean, to reimagine police work and to reimagine public safety? All the polls and pundits breathlessly talk about this reimagination, looking toward defunding police, disallowing the holds that give them control over a combative suspect, charging police with crimes and allowing lawsuits against police for doing the job we put them there to do.
I am reimagining public safety and police work too, with a new twist that would solve so many societal problems. I imagine a country who seeks to hire the best and brightest, most physically and mentally capable men and women to be police officers. I imagine that they would receive the best training from the best, most experienced and qualified trainers in Use of Force, Laws of Arrest, Search and Seizure, Firearms, Negotiation, De-escalation, Control Tactics, and the aspects of medicine that pertain to police work.
I imagine that they would be supported first and foremost by department leaders, city leaders, city councils, mayors, city managers, governors and finally citizens. The citizens would respect the police and teach their children to respect them rather than attack them and defy them. Police would be friends to the community and the community would be friends to the police. That starts with the example of all the aforementioned leaders.
I imagine that when someone is arrested for a crime, they will have bail to be released until trial, and that they would be prosecuted for the crime they commit and not for a made-up lesser infraction. Then if convicted the offender would receive an appropriate sentence as punishment and as a deterrent from committing more crimes. In the meantime, society would be safer with the criminal off the streets.

I imagine that whoever does the crime, does the time, regardless of age, sex, race, or any other useless reason.

I imagine that the well-trained, and continuously trained officers would come when called by a person needing help and would have the skills to take care of the problem they were called for. No longer would they be told to stand down as they watch thugs burning, and looting and brandishing weapons, and throwing water on officers, and attacking officers. In my imagination, this empowering of thugs and making wusses and punching bags out of officers would never happen again.
Police would be well-funded rather than de-funded. They would have every tool in their tool bag to enable them to protect the public from those who would harm us, and the courts and the legal system would back them up in every righteous situation and would remove offenders from  being in a position to re-offend and victimize more of our population.
I am imagining that the public demands that crimes that have been reduced from felonies to misdemeanors will be prosecuted as felonies, and that crimes that are no longer being prosecuted such as theft, burglary etc, be prosecuted before the crimes get bigger and bolder and more dangerous.
I imagine that dangerous politicians, partisan politicians, and plain stupid politicians would not have the power ever again to empty our jails and prisons of criminals, felons, child molesters, drug dealers, murderers, wife beaters, assaulters, child abusers and any other person that commits a crime that harms another human being. I imagine that Americans would feel safer in their homes, their work, on their streets and in their everyday lives.
I imagine that the people of America in every city, and county and state of this magnificent country, would have the common sense, and the heroic courage to vote out those that would defund those who keep us safe, and since it’s my imagination, I will also imagine that the politicians perpetrating the actions that support criminals and vilify police either have a come to Jesus moment and realize their dangerous stupidity, or get voted out and leave us the heck alone.
I promise that my reimagination of public safety will be far more effective than the versions I am hearing from the Marxist leaning, incompetent and dangerous politicians we currently employ.
I don’t need to imagine that we have the right to police protection, and we pay for police to protect our people and communities. Without them we will be less safe. Imagining the alternative is all bad.

Let’s be real about all this political double speak about reimagining, and call it for what it is, a betrayal of the people with the goal to move toward chaos and socialism.

I want good old-fashioned cops that can take care of business, put the bad guys in jail and walk granny across the street, and occasionally stop at the local donut shop.
I want safety over political correctness. I don’t want the guy who burgled my house to be back to do it like Groundhog Day, over and over as he gets out on no bail and the lazy DA won’t prosecute the crime. That is BS and we all know it. Let’s reimagine that we are strong enough to say something and do something to stop this ignorant and dangerous trip to neverland that we are on and get some politicians and police chiefs in place to do what their first order of business is, which is public safety.

Robert Malone Sues the Breggins for $25 Million

Robert Malone Sues the Breggins for $25 Million

Why would Dr. Malone make his claim so large — over 25 million dollars? The effect of what he is doing should be obvious. It threatens us with financial ruin and ties up our energies. Does he want to make us too afraid and too exhausted to criticize his public policy theories and his numerous highly destructive attacks on leaders of the health freedom movement?

Special Counsel Jack Smith and the Fairytale of a Trump-led Insurrection

Has anyone before even heard of this “veteran career prosecutor” Jack Smith? His wife, Katy Chevigny, donated $2000 to Biden’s 2020 basement campaign via her Big Mouth Productions company. She likewise contributed to the campaign of ultra-radical Islamic, anti-Semitic, Rashida Tlaib. Chevigny also happens to be a producer of Michelle Obama’s documentary Becoming…

If 18th-century Virginians Could Extend these Rights, Why not 21st-century Americans?

If 18th-century Virginians Could Extend these Rights, Why not 21st-century Americans?

If the people of Virginia could recognize these rights before we declared independence, then what should prevent us now? If eighteenth-century Virginians could extend these rights to their neighbors, why not 21st-century Americans? Seeing so much of the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights in this declaration gives me a better understanding of the…

My Journey to Jesus – Stationed in Germany Without my Wife

I thought this girl might want to be more than friends and was torn between attraction to her and wanting to be faithful to my wife (I won’t lie – it was arousing). I finished showering and put my pajamas on, and all she did was say, “Good night,” and head back to Pruitt’s room. This experience was a pretty big culture shock, but the girls were right – nudity in Germany is fairly common…

Trump and the Swamp That Still Oozes With Criminality

Forty-seven Democrats and forty-nine Republicans are under observation. Again, Nancy Pelosi was not included, but many trades demonstrated excellent timing, like Bob Gibbs (R-Ohio), who sits on the House Oversight Committee, allegedly purchased shares of the pharmaceutical company AbbVie in 2020 and 2021 even as his committee was investigating them for excessive drug prices…

History Repeats – ‘Control the Food, Control the Population’

Something more seems to be at play at the origin of our food supply. Currently, two of the most prominent investors in American farmland are China and Bill Gates. Government interference in how farmers are able to do their jobs is also causing issues. Throughout history, many mass famines and starvation of people have occurred because of government direction. Hitler, Stalin, and Mao…

A Disturbing Symptom of Social Disintegration; Mass Murder Incidents are an Ominous Sign

A Disturbing Symptom of Social Disintegration; Mass Murder Incidents are an Ominous Sign

The Social Justice approach to crime obviously contributes to the rising tide of violence. Although Leftists may consider the increasing crime rate a fair trade for the political capital they generate with their policies, what may be less obvious to many is that the degeneration of fundamental human morality poses an existential threat to the continuity of human society writ large…

Statesmanship is Overrated When You’re Fighting this Level of Corruption

Statesmanship is Overrated When You’re Fighting this Level of Corruption

Statesmanship is supposedly based on the once-long-standing rules of dignity, collegiality, and propriety, but the results are always the same. The Democrat’s rules of statesmanship are found in Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. The Left has been the only side fighting this war through the years. Republicans have been slammed to the mat so many times that they’ve gotten so used to it…

Stories of Corruption Cast a Dark Shadow Post-COVID and Q & A 46 on America Out Loud PULSE

America Out Loud PULSE with Dr. Peter McCullough and Malcolm Out Loud – I distrust Pharma, period. That begs the question: To receive the flu shot this year or not? Should I still be concerned about potential heart scarring? Would the presence and persistence of spike in the body be a factor of whether myopericarditis resolves? Is there any present Danger from Covid-19 lab-made “Viruses”?

A Literary Thanksgiving of Gratitude: Twain, Rand, Cicero, Francovich, et al.

Ayn Rand’s take on this American holiday is truly insightful. Rand has the following to say about Thanksgiving Day: “The lavish meal is a symbol of the fact that abundant consumption is the reward of production.” Reflection about the many things that Americans should be grateful for is a healthy practice that breeds long-lasting goodwill while fending off…

Beyond Slogans – Keys to Winning in 2024

The Democrats are not going to change anything even though continued political relevance demands that they change basically everything to sound more like JFK than Karl Marx, but here is the thing ⏤ by and large the American people just don’t care about election fraud in 2020 (or 2022). Running on that may win the primary, but it will lose the general election…

Your Guide to the Coming Riots

Your Guide to the Coming Riots

One of America’s great pastimes is “the protest.” A constitutionally protected right, it has somehow gotten confused with its violent and illegal cousin, “the riot.” It seems that today’s mainstream media has a rather difficult time discerning between the two. With a building burning intensely behind him, a reporter described an actual riot as a “mostly peaceful protest.”

On David Ralston (RIP) and Who Counts the Votes

Joseph Stalin once said he didn’t care who voted or how, but who counted the ballots. Like Stalin, the Democrats discovered that the voters weren’t important; the ballots were. Control of the ballot process, whether ballot harvesting, absentee, or mail-in ballots, so long as they have the ballot counting devices, they can win most elections…
