I've been considering the proposal by the ignorant left, to defund the police and use social workers to respond to "family beefs" and neighborhood disputes. Our response time as a Sheriff's Deputy was a maximum of 45 minutes to the farthest reaches of our very large county and as short as two minutes in the more urban/suburbs.
I can just imagine the 911 dispatcher notifying the social worker that they had a 10-(whatever) code and needed a social worker right away. The social worker's first response is "what's a 10-????> The dispatcher informs the social worker and then she races around her house/office to find her phone, purse, keys, glasses and box of pamphlets. She then runs past the hall mirror, stopping to look at herself and vowing to lose that much needed 85 pounds. She then exits her home/office and gets into her Prius. Backing carefully out of her assigned spot she stops and looks both ways before entering traffic, being careful to stay in the right lane. At the first intersection she realizes that she doesn't know where the address that she was given, is. She pulls over and asks Siri where the address is and then goes to Goggle maps before turning around and proceeding in the correct direction. Being careful to stay at or just below the posted speed limit, she goes over the speech that she will be giving to those involved. She's thinking "this could take some time and I haven't had my break yet so I'll grab a decaffeinated Chai Tea, skinny with no foam. Probably a Grande and maybe a muffin." At Starbucks she orders and tells them that she's in a hurry and would they be so kind as to be quick with her order? The man-boy-gender neutral girl-woman says in it's best valley girl accented speech, "you'll just have to wait like everyone else because we don't move very fast because we have no strength because we're all vegans with the body fat of a popsicle." After paying $9.00 plus another $3.00 tip, she reenters traffic arriving one hour and twenty minutes after the initial call. She knocks on the door of the house and it swings open to reveal a dead female on the floor with a gunshot wound to her face. In a chair in another room is the body of the presumed shooter, also dead with what appears a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his right temple area. There is brain matter and other body fluids on the wall nearest him. A gun lies on the floor. In the background she hears the wailing of a baby and the screams of a young child. Lets hear it for the social worker idea! Cops are trained to deal with this kind of crap. Social workers were created to wear polyester clothing.

Anyone with a brain knows exactly what will happen when this is tried. As most of us know some places will try it. When it blows up in their face, as we all know it will, the people who came up with the idea will take zero responsibility for the people who get hurt. In a way it will be kind of funny. The people who take the job, who really think they can walk into these kind of situations and just do what those bad Cops could not? When some of them get badly hurt it will be funny to see them get that wake up call from reality. :eek:

Eugene / Springfield - 150k residents, not some tiny location, but also not a million as a major city would be.

There are other posts about this around NWFA.

I really hope for the sake of all involved those actually promoting this in the cities that are actually considering this come to their senses.

They are obviously not thinking this through and obviously have no Idea of the potential danger these 'Community safety' people would be in.

I can only imagine as to the type of person who would even apply for one of these positions as well.

We had a call Saturday night for a domestic dispute that culminated in the boyfriend ramming a good Samaritan's vehicle at high speed and then stabbing the ex-girlfriend multiple times.

I don't think telling the guy to visualize his feelings would have helped.
Exactly.

I am of the opinion that all of those on the left have no common sense at all. As a result, the potential for great personal harm is on them. As an aside, here in Washington, background checks go through our DHSH and are really slow because those that are looking for ANY reason to deny the purchase are gun haters of the first order.

Even if this were to become reality I suspect what the 'city' is thinking is if they send in their 'community pacifiers' out to an 'incident', and if (when) they fail miserably I'd bet the 'city' is thinking the good ol' County or State will just bail them out with LEO 'backup' - but they may be in for a 'surprise' .......

It will be much like socialism, wherein no one who implements it seems to ever have done it right, no matter how glowing the reviews were before the inevitable results came home to roost.
 
My biggest problem with all of this, is there is no accountability built into any of it. You can’t get your act together? Its ok you have outstanding warrants! Here’s some free stuff!

If you got your act together for the most part, you get arrested because you’re not a special interest person “in crisis”.

How is that equal application of the law? If people don’t want people arrested, get rid of those behaviors off the RCW. Don’t be lazy and come up with local practice work-arounds.
