Getting colder, not warmer. Way way way out of your depth here. Improved policing is but one of about ten required steps.
Based on your previous response, your “solution” is exactly what the government has done for 60 years, pour money, elect Democrat politicians and creat laws that the same politicians dont want.
Wrong. That isn’t even close to what I said. And mayors from both parties have presided over police corruption and lack of investment in the right areas. Urban poverty has no magic partisan wand to be waved.
This was what you said:
US for five decades because we are unwilling to make the changes to funding, community, and metropolitan management that would facilitate meaningful change
You are telling me, keep electing Democrat politicians to continue spending billions on programs and such, since it will solve these problems. We debated on the other thread about the consequences of the 'war on poverty'. Pouring money into this won't solve the problem. Its more complex than that.
NYC was a hellhole till Giuliani came in, he was a Republican, he took down the Democrat establishment there, made it a wonderful city till Diblasio came in. I say, elect Republicans and enforce the law.
Democrats are bought by the public sector unions which fund them, and then are accountable to them (public schools are a huge cause too), and won't enforce the law because they will be accused of racism. Then the result is what we see on the big cities, LA, NY, Chicago, Baltimore, etc. These are the cities that drive the murder rates, and mass shootings figures high, and make the US look the way it is. It is not because the US has the 2nd amendment. This has existed for hundreds of years, the problem is much recent, and nothing to do with your right to keep and bear arms.
