You Will Not Believe the INSANE
Proposals This City Is Considering
for 'Reimagining' Public Safety

Original Article

Posted By: Hazymac, 4/18/2021 12:45:30 PM

Austin Mayor Steve Adler announced that he wanted to “reimagine” public safety in the city. If the use of the word “reimagine” pinged your “I’ve got a bad feeling about this” radar, you will soon know how right you are. Thus far, “reimagining” public safety has gravely damaged it in Austin. It has amounted to cutting about $150 million from the Austin Police Department’s budget and standing idly by while violent crime rates have soared in the once peaceful and slightly weird city. Two APD cadet classes were also canceled. Breaking Bad has come to Austin. By my last count, Austin police officers have been shot on duty four times

In Austin they have a T shirt that say's Keep Austin Weird. In Houston we have one that say's Keep Austin 170 Miles away from Me. California's moving there. They may need more cops.

Not convinced that Satan isn't STUPID!! He obviously didn't pass the SANCTITY test, now did he?! While those in Heaven had no trouble at all, according to Our Lord, since they remained steadfast!! Works for me. No one with any amount of minimal intelligence would deliberately want to go to Hell - for ALL ETERNITY!! Only self-hating masochists need apply.

The real reason they've advocated for defunding the police, and allocate those funds to other government social programs is they wanted to use the transfer of funds scheme to bolster that funding, since they couldn't get people to simply increase their taxes to pay for those same programs, and fully expected Republicans to quickly push for additional funding to restore those funds.

They want to essentially ban the police from making any traffic stops in the future, unless the police are not armed. Since traffic stops are a very dangerous part of policing, because violent criminals are known to carry firearms to shoot police officers should they come to the attention of the police, why would any police officer put his or her life at risk by performing traffic stops while not armed? If the above proposal become the law, why would people even bother to purchase a motor vehicle registration and license plates for their motor vehicles that the police would be prohibited from stopping while being driven on the public streets in a dangerous or reckless manner?

Austin is home to the University of Texas and a lot of prestigious companies. Will they move? My speculation is the policing that used to be done by the Austin police will be picked up by the state so every resident of Texas will have to foot the bill.

Once again, this is what would come out of a high school social studies class, i.e. proposals from people who know nothing about the real world. The problem here is that these proposals will be taken seriously In spite of the fact that it has been shown that not supporting the police increases crime. They will say that they can do it right with more money. Let’s see what happens when there are no more police to fight crime.

The Defund The Police movement is alive and well in the Democrat Party as much as the DC politicians are trying to distance themselves from it. I don’t know who they think they are pandering to since a solid majority of all races are against this. Most liberal run cities are already unlivable. Unfortunately this is causing an exodus to red cities and States that will be destroyed when they finish voting the same morons in.

#7. Texas University is on the forefront of these politics. They have been liberal for longer than I can remember. #11 Why should Abbott freeze their property taxes? Let them go up just like the rest of ours. The problems they cause don't stop at the Austin city limits, unfortunately. It seems to me like capital cities everywhere tend to be stupidly liberal no matter what the rest of the state is like. I think capital cities and the metropolis around them should be kept out of state wide elections.

Austin is nothing like it was just 20 years ago. The large numbers of idiots who moved there ruined what attracted them to it. Landmark businesses that were Austin trademark establishments closed-down because of the high taxes. Overpasses have large numbers of bums living under them doing drugs, now that Adler is defunding the police the city will just become more of an insane asylum.

A past link to an activity described as eco-terrorism should disqualify President Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management, according to a Republican senator. Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming responded critically to nominee Tracy Stone-Manning’s role in sending a threatening letter on behalf of an environmentalist group that committed tree spiking crimes in 1989. “Tracy Stone-Manning collaborated with eco-terrorists,” Barrasso said, according to the Daily Caller. “She worked with extreme environmental activists who spiked trees, threatening the lives and livelihoods of loggers.”

In his book Value(s): Building a Better World for All, Mark Carney, former governor both of the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England, claims that western society is morally rotten, and that it has been corrupted by capitalism, which has brought about a “climate emergency” that threatens life on earth. This, he claims, requires rigid controls on personal freedom, industry and corporate funding. Carney’s views are important because he is UN Special Envoy on Climate Action and Finance. He is also an adviser both to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the next big climate conference in Glasgow, and to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

When it comes to terrorism, if an individual criticizes groups that support or are linked to terror, he/she will be labeled by those groups an “Islamophobe.” While the term is loosely defined as someone hateful of Muslims, more often than not it is used as a malicious way to silence critics.

The cargo is only the second oil import by the United States from Iran since late 1991. [Tweet] In 2020, the Trump administration imposed sweeping economic sanctions against Iran’s oil sector as tensions between Washington and Tehran continued to escalate in the days leading up to the American presidential election.
