How fast and who can win the race to the bottom? The bottom of living in a civilized society. Poof…..before our eyes our society continues to collapse. If anyone thinks that what is happening in Seattle will not expand to further anarchy think again. Yes, as the mayor of Seattle states “Perhaps we are going to have a summer of love.” Yes indeed.
Mayor Breed of San Fransisco said in a news release that for calls that don’t involve a threat to public safety, police would be replaced by trained, unarmed professionals to limit unnecessary confrontation between the police department and the community.
The non-criminal calls will include neighbor disputes, reports on homeless people and school discipline interventions, among other activities.
As part of police reforms, San Francisco will also strengthen accountability policies, ban the use of military-grade weapons and divert funding to the African-American community, Breed said.
The city will develop its plan over the next year and follow models like the Cahoots program in Eugene, Ore., Breed said. That community-based crisis program employs social workers and mental health workers to respond to disturbances where crimes are not being committed.
“We understand that it’s necessary for law enforcement to listen to African-American communities and embrace courageous changes to address disparate policing practices, and we recognize it will take sacrifice on our part to fulfill the promise of reform,” Scott said.

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.
