    What with all the complaints about how awful cops in America are, let's just get rid rid of them.
    Then wait a year.
    When the survivors beg them to come back and restore order to what's left of their cities,
    SAY NO.

    Right you are Robbie. America is in dire need of some European intellect. 😏

    yes!!! the answer to a flat tire is not to fix it. the answer is to take away that whiner's car for a year and then give it back, flat tire and all, and he will no longer complain about it.

    That's been tried in and around Detroit. Total populations is down to under 700,000 from near 2 million. Still cops can't keep the peace, and decent people of all races are leaving. Some of the dystopian movies such as the Robo Cop series are almost reality already.

    Robbie, I don't want to get into a pissing match over semantics. There are still people of different colors in Detroit proper. The only reason for residency is cheap housing, and for middle eastern shopkeepers, customers who will pay exorbitant prices for goods, and when you add high car insurance, insane housing insurance, and ever present danger, most people just don't see the equation as viable.

    For decades the strategy of luring young people downtown with walking friendly city features is a failure. Why? Once the young, cool people get robbed, or burglarized, they see the cool image is just that, an image not reality.

    Fishhead has a point. Although, removing police would expose the problem, in a year there wouldn't be much left for anyone to return to.

    Great idea. That might even stop the liberal nutjobs from attacking the second amendment. 😏

    I think there are a couple of very true posts in this thread:
    Yes, the US would be better off back under sane European control.

    And: no let's not. Let them dive into their own medievil cesspit.
    We'll come and drag them out on the other side.

    This is funny stuff, have you considered a career in stand up comedy instead of sucking on the state teat.

    So in summary you are saying that the cure for all complaints about any service is to remove the service altogether. Then enjoy listening to the even greater complaints. And never restore the service.

    I fail to see why you think that is a good idea other than it might reduce your taxes slightly (but all your gains will be stolen from you).

    And those of us not living in America will no longer be complaining about how awful cops in America are but merely laughing at how stupid Americans are that they gave up having cops because they simply couldn't take any criticism.
