#AbolishThePolice Is Trending On Twitter and The Debate Is Heated

Some people act like police brutality is a new issue while others realize that it’s been a big issue since pretty much the birth of our country and then there are the people in between somewhere and all those people continually clash with each other and with the 4th group of people…the ones who think police brutality and racial profiling aren’t an issue at all. The problem has been brought into focus more than ever this year with the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and many, many more just this year alone.

One way or the other everyone has an opinion on this and there have been outcries on social media to #DefundThePolice and now trending today is #AbolishThePolice and there is no shortage of people with something to say on the matter..

Personally I’m not a big fan of police, I got in a lot of legal trouble when I was younger and my interactions from back then left a sour taste in my mouth regarding them but at the same time I don’t see society working out real well without someone to enforce the rules to some degree…I mean look half the people won’t even take responsibility enough to wear a mask…can we really trust people to police themselves? I don’t think there’s any perfect solution here but many people seem to think they know exactly how to solve it…so let’s check out some of the tweets.

Hey as a Gen Xer I’m right there with ya but we can’t call for change without a plan to make it work…and it’s “your reckoning”

Yea I’m not too sure I trust people to just obey the laws and rules on their own but when you can’t trust the police to be fair and just then what is the solution?

I understood #DefundThePolice as less funding to police is doable and possible but I don’t see how we’d ever get by with them just totally gone…

#ReplaceThePolice might work but with who? We need that plan in place first of all.

The latest of many tragic deaths at the hands of police…shot in the back in front of his children…this should never happen yet it’s happening at an alarming frequency in our country now…how many names do we need to attach to hashtags before something changes?

Yea the first step is coming up with a plan to properly replace the police…a group that protects and serves more than they enforce and terrify.

You’d think by now even the racist POS cops would think twice before pulling this kind of stuff…they need to be properly trained to handle these things without lethal force…they jump to using their guns much too quickly these days.

And it’s not just these big stories you’re seeing in the news…this stuff is going on all over the country , every day.

This might be the first actual solution that I’ve seen posted…a possibility of a solution anyways.

What are your thoughts?

Should we #AbolishThePolice or #DefundThePolice?
