Ah but the new Mayor has a solution. She wants to cut 4 million from the police and put it in social programs.

Going to close the jail? Is she serious? At least the police positions aren't filled right now. But where are the prisoners going?

They probably want to release them. They do it with foreign criminals.

Just like KC....I think they are doing this...hoping the state will step in and fund them....seriously....they are trying to milk money from the rest of the state for their police department.  At least for STL....the state handed control back over to them, because they bitched and moaned about it.

The Kansas City Mayor saw that and said "Hold my latte".

Two police unions one black and one white?    


Are you sure there isn't a Police Union, and then a black only police union?

Let her try . . . local communities being the experimental laboratories for democracy and all . . .

Clearly, the St. Louis Police Department isn't able to stop the violence. Despite their best efforts, the residents of the City of St. Louis continue to shoot each other. (Dr. Phil voice: "How's that working out for you?") Why not try something different? Honestly, could it be any worse?

Full disclosure, I could count the times I've been inside the St. Louis City limits in the past 10 years on one hand. I don't have a dog in this fight. But I say if the City thinks they have a better plan for controlling their residents, let them try. We'll see what happens.

ETA: The story the OP linked to included a link to the Mayor's Announcement. From that page, you can find another document that shows budget information for the City of St. Louis. It appears the mayor wants to shift $4 million within the city's $400 million public safety budget. So, we're talking about 1 percent of the police budget. Honestly, her proposal to close the city "workhouse" seems like a much bigger deal: https://www.stlouis-mo.gov/government/departments/mayor/news/mayor-jones-2022-budget-workhouse.cfm

And the city can't fathom why the county rejects their yearly merger proposals.

God forbid a white person need to use their firearm for self preservation in that shithole.

Exactly that.  Most of the black officers belong to both, but the Ethical Society of Police is just for black officers.

Friends involved in local politics are saying that there's real calls for deannexation of the Northland because of this.

I like it.
