If only there were some social workers in that alley at 2:45am on a Sunday morning this all could’ve been prevented!

Right on brother, let's go Brandon or something

Sounds like you’re assuming some shit about me so that it’s easier for you to stomach the obvious point I made about crime prevention in the context of the post I was replying to. I voted for “Brandon”

Hit the bricks.

You made the same tired response that a particular crowd of people like to use anytime there's a violent crime committed. I voted for Brandon too, this isn't that serious.

Or i made a sarcastic comment in reply to a different tired ass response anytime there’s a crime…”Cops are useless!”

Ask yourself why my comment upset you so much you had to assume I’m a Republican.

Fucking Reddit, full of smooth brains

Right, but you can make a lot of assumptions about that tired comment. Sarcasm doesn't translate well in text.

It seems like only one of us is upset here and it certainly isn't me. I hope this doesn't ruin your day!

You can assume whatever you want as long as you’re willing to get called out for your wrong assumptions.

My day is far from ruined but thanks for your faux-concern, slick.

Don’t confuse me chiding you with name calling as me being upset, although I’m sure that’s an effective ego-protective mechanism for you.

It sure seems like you're upset. This isn't that serious. Have a better day!

You say that to me as if I've ever argued for that that. I haven't. It's a nice strawman, though.

Do you know what I am in favor of for our city? Cops back on actual beats. They're being paid by our taxes to do a job. Arguably, right now they aren't doing that job. Traffic offenses left and right, pedestrians getting hit, a pervert creeper going around shouting he's the one doing it but police can't seem to apprehend, muggings in places that were previously safe...

Police, as they currently are by their design, are worthless. Cops sitting in cars at the back of lots waiting for calls (when the crime has already happened) do nothing to prevent crime by way of presence.

Definitely not a strawman. Sarcastic response to the implied meaning of the comment I replied to regarding cops and crime prevention

Next time articulate yourself intelligently and you won’t get a sarcastic reply.

Also, hard not to think you’re just backpedaling here since you posted elsewhere in the thread “why have them at all” and you appear to post in multiple anti-police subreddits

Imagine that…

But yes super funny that you’d double down that cops are worthless.

Kyle the college freshman, ladies and gentlemen.

Edit to add: how do you reconcile that the crime rate is down compared to when cops “walked the beat” so to speak?
