TKC MUST READ!!! KCPD CHIEF DEBUNKS SOCIAL WORKERS REPLACING COPS!!!

This year po-po confronted a great many people who wanted to "defund" or even abolish local law enforcement. 

Here's an informed perspective an and answer back to those critics from the top cop . . .

KCPD Chief: Social workers belong in law enforcement but cannot replace officers

Money line . . .

"Social work absolutely has a place in law enforcement, but it cannot replace law enforcement, as many people have demanded this year. People who are in mental health or substance abuse crisis are not stable. They’re not always dangerous, but they can be. The criminal justice system is not the way to treat people with mental illness, but it does work to ensure people’s safety . . . Law enforcement-social work partnership is the future of policing in America, and I’m glad we were at the forefront. It has led to very desirable outcomes in Kansas City, and not a single social worker has been injured. It is irresponsible to send untrained, unarmed social workers out to deal with volatile and potentially violent individuals. No call is ever “routine.” But it makes a world of sense to put their specialized training to work alongside law enforcement so they can stay safe while effecting the kind of change police cannot."

Read the post in its entirety.

He's right.

Glad to see KCPD doesn't downplay the importance of social workers. Actually, saves officers a great deal of time and resources.

There is nothing more consistently dangerous for the police, than "Domestic Disturbance" calls. Shit gets out of hand and out of hand fast. Sending some little, SJW white girl, filled with ethnomasochistic fervor is the last fuckin thing a cop needs when he has to confront some whacked out husband/wife in the midst of a blow up.

So NO. Don't send them until things settle down. Sending people who are unable to throw hands, whip out batons and take violent action against and to protect people in dangerous situations is fuckin stupid, but, Jesus God do we live in a stupid, Progressive world full of idiots.

Let's be very clear, Social Workers do nothing, and I mean nothing, but tell people about resources that are basically open only Monday thru Friday 9 to 5. They cannot deal with any crisis that occurs after hours or during the night.

If you want to have social workers helping police, you need to have community resources open and accepting emergencies 24/7 365. Any less, you just putting a bandaid on the problem.

Police detain criminals. Many criminals are black men, so of course will detain black men. Police are erroneously accused of detaining black men. That's not their intent. Police detain criminals.

Ironically my social worker friend was murdered and then raped for almost a week by several men whose baby mommies went into to get social assistance, distracted her while one got her address out of her purse and then sent their baby daddies in to rob , murder and rape her dead body. Maybe social workers is not the answer ? Maybe social work and dealing with violent offender animals is not the same / maybe it is.

The subspecies is nasty. I feel sorry for every cop who gets called to visit a domestic disturbance, which so often means a babydaddy, AKA a male of the subspecies. They cannot kill each other off fast enough to make the world better. ANIMALS.

The harm perpetrated by the police is obvious. The issue is that there is also a good that outweighs the bad, and this good supposedly explains the necessary utility of the police and a natural attachment to them. But it is much more accurate to ask: is it not rather pure evil? An animal evil? If a police officer participates in the deportation of a child, whether that officer believes that their crime has been cleared because they were simply following the orders they receive, as a police agent of a State — regardless of whether they judge that State lawful or not, democratic or not — this act is legitimate in the eyes of the functionary. It is, above all, the expression of a great majority, against which it would be more painful for them to resist than to submit to. Their crime is no less heinous. It is not their obedience or their justification of the legitimacy of the orders they receive (those are just means), but only their act which is atrocious and, indeed, real.

Nope, all though their DNA was in her dead body ( they screwed her dead body for nearly a week ). The POS's got off on a technicality. Hard to debate letting off a bunch of guys that would kill and then rape a dead body for a week. But, it does happen. I guess some proud prosecutor seems it normal for a bunch of guys to screw a dead murdered body over a technicality. BTW- they ordered a pizza in the Kitchen and ate is as they watched others fuck her dead body in that Kitchen. They did make her order it before they strangled her.
