Should Police Departments Be Given More Money?

So question...Do you think the current training efforts would be sufficient, if they were re-focused as you would like, with no additional expenditures?

Yes!!! Was I not clear? They have PPE, they have tazers, they have pepper spray; they lack the correct approach... So unless they want to buy bigger guns; why do they want more money?

Let's say I was attacking you, if the police do not have a duty to protect you, do they not have a duty to stop me from breaking the law?

It seems the answer is “no”

Apparently it’s a slogan and not an obligation.

I also take issue with the conflation of “lack of training” with “not enough funding.” There’s lots of money there already, it’s just not being applied to training.

Why would you want to spend more on training? Perhaps for more training toward the correct approach?

Or do you just wind them up and send them in a different direction?
