Community Talks With Police In The Dotte

Amid an uptick in violence and continued protest against law enforcement, like it or not, these kind of dialogues are important and probably more productive than just yelling in the street . . . Read more:

Believe it or not? I choose not.

Discussion or not, nothing will change. The police will be accused of doing too much or not doing enough. The "community" will refuse to identify killers and then will complain that there are so many unsolved cases. Crappy parenting, absent fathers, a culture of violence: community "leaders" (apologists) will suppress any discussion of those factors.

A major problem are the rates and extra fees for utilities supplied by the BPU. Lower the rates and extra fees and there should be money to spend elsewhere to make living in wyco less stressful. Not a police problem though.

Talk is cheap, especially when the community you are trying to communicate with doesn't understand that the actions of their community members are counter to how civilized society lives. They don't understand that sometimes it is necessary to use force to subdue a criminal, and that that force may involve the use of lethal weapons. They don't understand that a black man pointing a weapon will get shot 100% of the time. They don't understand that petty theft of cars, homes, garages, bicycles, etc., leads to bigger crime and those caught should go to jail. They don't understand that smoking marijuana is still illegal and that little Kwame may go to jail for selling it. They don't understand that violent, property-damaging protests are not how you garner sympathy for your plight. Perhaps the community should stand up to its own members and demand accountability. Not just once, but in a majority of the incidents.

are legislative laws that constitute a series of endless threats & endless consequences helpful?

^^ I'm a 23-year old student at the UMKC School of Dentistry. Is "OK Boomer" the best you have? Is that the standard intellectual quip of my generation? Mocking the older generation means we are right? I feel sorry for you. Is the F-word your favorite adjective too? Not much to say? No argument except "OK Boomer?" Wait, did you break the antenna off my 17-year old Mazda during the plaza riots?

is up to your burden of proof to make OK boomer agree? what if OK boomer changed it to an ad infinitum 'don't agree'? Would it be less annoying or would it offend your ego less? i think it would be less annoying.
