Response to Stinky The Clown (Original post)

18. The focus should be on less force, not more.

Giving them even more options, even if they're deemed less-than-lethal will only give them more tools to oppress and increase their authoritarian, adversarial mindset. Then they will use all of their options even more, including the lethal ones.

A complete overhaul of our police forces is the answer. Less reliance on police is the answer. A focus on community-oriented solutions is the answer.
