Police shootings are driven by crime and a poorly trained unprofessional police force not white supremacy. Jamaica, South Africa have black supremacy and yet more police shootings and vastly higher crime than the US.

The defunding of the cops is having two effects
1) the best cops are leaving

2) Crime is rising since cops are basically a lot less active

Basically its a repeat of the 1970's. As crime rises and the worst cops remain in a demoralized police force we should expect to see more police shootings and much more corruption. Now there will of course be some oscilliation...you will have periods were blm activism lead to less cop activity and less shootings but sky-rocketing crime.

Then when crime really gets horrible you will have a counter-reaction where people start wanting very aggressive cops and much more action...and the cop shootings will dramatically rise. In both Jamaica and South Africa people want cops to be more aggressive despite the fact that cop shootings in both countries are far higher than the US:

So BLM done the exact opposite of what is set out to do.

^ Of course! - try and tell that to the idiots on the LEFT and the Democratic Party.

Some things are just common sense.

I might be wrong, but I don't think any of those guys that wanted to kill the Governor and take over the state of Michigan were "Lefties".

BLM is acting against racial injustice.  Defunding of the police is a separate issue...one that some may agree with and some may disagree with.  I support BLM, but I'm not interested in defunding the police. 

You like to compartmentalize groups and people...so does the President.   If there are extremists on the left, then all of the left is the same...that's your thinking.  But that's neither reality, nor the truth!  Cheers!

For anyone with half a brain, do some due diligence. BLM is nothing more than a Democrat funded extremist group. Check out where the donations go...Straight to a Democrat PAC....

The self burns truly are rare. Perhaps this is the type of due diligence you should have performed yourself?

NoVo, a social justice foundation formed in 2006 by Peter Buffett—the son of billionaire investor Warren Buffett—and Peter’s wife, Jennifer.


NoVo, with Peter and Jennifer Buffett behind it, deepened its relations to the new racial justice movement, donating $300,000 in 2014 to IDEX—the group that would soon become BLM’s financial sponsor—plus another $750,000 to NDWA, where Garza worked


In 2015, the connection between the Buffett's giving to the two organizations became explicit. In that year, NoVo gifted $3.72 million to IDEX, a sum greater than the organization’s past three years of total revenue combined. Of that funding, $700,000 was specifically earmarked for the support of the Black Lives Matter movement. BLM co-founder Garza likewise saw her employer, NDWA, get a significant bump in revenue from NoVo, with an exponentially increased $4.5 million in unrestricted funding.


The transfer of BLM’s fiscal sponsorship from Thousand Currents to the Tides Network would appear to end the relationship between NoVo and the Black Lives Matter movement. However, according to public financial documents, NoVo has continued its relationship with BLM, just through a different shell organization. Indeed, NoVo is now even more deeply involved with BLM now that BLM is a part of the Tides Network: In 2018 alone, NoVo dispersed more than 100 separate donations totaling at least $121 million to Tides directly. (The relationship between NoVo and Tides is not strictly financial, either. According to their own public disclosures, the Tides Network provides “executive, administrative, and consulting services ... to NoVo Foundation,” in much the same fashion that IDEX served as the back office for Black Lives Matter.)

Financial backing and where the donations go are two different things.

I'll also add, George Soros funds plenty of movements as well. Whats your point? Rich people utilize their wealth? Donations to BLM go straight to one of the largest Democrat PACs

PTSD is the common and widespread 'elephant in the room', that very few within the police, emergency services, mental health, and security forces are able to talk about. Sadly a great many BLM incidents are simply because otherwise good people just 'lost it'. We call it radicalization if it turns you into a terrorist, otherwise you're expected to self medicate and suck it up.

Defund the Police, just means a mental health person accompanying the police when practical. Defusing the 2 of 3 times, when its really someone suffering a mental breakdown, keep the overwhelming force just for the times that it truly matters. To those suffering PTSD it's a threat to jobs, and overtime. Worse still, being diagnosed with the problem!

BLM is very restrained, and owes a great deal to its civil rights heritage - be happy that there's something to dialogue with.
The reaction could easily have gone the way of Germanys Baader-Meinhof gang. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/6314559.stm
