Its Time to Remove Guns From All Police OfficersSubmitted by Treg on Thu, 03/14/2013 - 19:29
and to do this, we must at the same time end the Drug War as well as the war on adult prostitution. All three must come to an end.
Ending the Drug War, the War on Prostitution and Removing Guns from the Police as a standard weapon will have major repercussions inside and outside our American culture. It will do three good things for society:
1) Decrease violence in America and across the globe and make communities more of a participant in its own policing; ie safer.
2) End the growing Nazi-spy-Police State and the alienation of citizens to its police. Police, unarmed with guns, will be forced to take a completely different tactic when apprehending and arresting. Indeed, all other tools such as Mase-spray and Baton-clubs and electric-Tasers should also be removed from the police's arsenal of weapons to use for apprehending civilians.
3) Police, unarmed, will now be forced to seek civilian compliance to all apprehensions. To do this, they will engage family and community in its apprehensions. An unarmed police means a whole new respect for civil rights, Miranda rights, warrants for arrest, and a new tactic that seeks cooperation and compliance. It requires the Police to pursue a policy of "slow apprehension" and "family-community" participation in the apprehension. This is a HUGE social-community change that CAN and WILL happen once we disarm our nation's Police.
Is this an entirely crazy idea?
Well one country does not allow its cops to carry guns, since the 19th century!
