In one of your pairs of comments last week, someone used the hammer-nail analogy to say that if you start with the assumption that there’s a systemic problem, you can find evidence to support it.
But the same holds true for assuming that police could solve all these problems if they only had more funding, more training, and better management & scheduling. So supporters can find evidence that tends to support that approach.
Common sense tell us that no matter how good the PD is, not everything is a law-enforcement problem, not every situation is best handled by an armed police officer. So let’s see where some innovative thinking could lead!
(As Albert Einstein said, ‘We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.’)
