I find the whole idea of defunding the police to be a nice playground of "ideas" for people who never lived in crime affected communities. When I came to Canada 30 years ago I lived for a couple of years in Toronto inner city, mostly in a coop where half of the units were subsidized. Many immigrants from all over the world. Never heard from people with families and kids in local schools that they wanted less policing, they wanted more. That's what police needs,a lot of scrutiny, and they should not be able to unionize, that's very important.
