Response to StarfishSaver (Original post)

54. Reimagine the police.

Policing is a very difficult job, because they're put in positions most of the day they shouldn't be in - that we need trained social workers who can deal with those situations more calmly and effectively.

And for situations where we do need cops - most of them are not qualified at all for policing itself. I think this point gets lost in the background, but I strongly believe most of these guys/gals are physically, mentally and otherwise unsuited for these jobs - thus they reach for their gun first. A more physically fit, intelligent police force would be able to apprehend suspects and deal with these situations without needing lethal force. We need to fire all of the cops and rehire on stricter standards. The police unions are fundamentally the problem, as they stand firmly in the way of change.
