The Police is an Antiquated Idea

An Old, Outdated Branch of Law

I agree with BLM protesters that the police should be abolished. There are 2 ways to accomplish this.

  1. Devise a better system
  2. Build a society in which no law enforcement is necessary

To achieve the first method, we first must understand what the justice system does.

Laws are written by politicians selected by democratic means. Police are given the unique ability to use force to enforce these laws and capture lawbreakers. The judicial system determines the guilt or innocence based on evidence and arguments presented and interpretation of the written laws.

The 3 powers of justice are separated to help prevent abuse of power. It’s not perfect, but it works well.

If laws are the problem, an easy solution exists. Simply read all the entire legal code of every jurisdiction and determine where the mistakes lie. This is a lot of work but legal language is intentionally very clear, for the most part. Please list the laws you don’t like and lobby to have them scratched or improved. Murder, rape, assault, theft, vandalism all seem to be clearly where the law might need to be written. There are certainly many laws which need review but these main ones are usually not in dispute – at least in spirit.

If the judicial system is flawed, this will be a more difficult process to rectify. Combative legal representation presenting arguments to an unbiased judge. could be improved upon. I’ve seen a slight move toward something better with co-operative divorce (when both parties agree) rather than long drawn-out legal battles over every piece of property which then needs to be sold to pay the lawyers. I am open to better ideas but it isn’t easy.

Finally, the police. When it was realized that society had problems with violence and disrespect for property, rule enforcers were recruited. Gradually refined, the current standard is an identified group with unique powers of force to prevent lawlessness and capture law breakers. Identifying uniforms and badges ensure some accountability and law enforcement officers operate under strict rules about the kind of force they can use and when they can use it. The same laws that apply to all citizens and more apply to these officers.

Further, oversight bureaus are charged with the task of investigating misbehavior by these officers and dispensing discipline.

No system is perfect. Positions can only be filled by humans after all. I am open to any and all suggestions on how to improve or replace these systems.

Now for option number #2.

All it entails is turning society into a one in which no one rapes, murders, assaults, steals, harasses, acts irresponsibly in ways that could cause injury or commits any other serious crimes. I’m sure it’s not that hard and could be accomplished by the end of this century at which time, please feel free to abolish the police.

I think we could have achieved something close to this level of societal stability if we had not been misdirected by Marxism infiltrating all of our institutions, but we can’t change the past.

There you have it. Two choices of ways to abolish the police. Please leave details of your plan in the comments.
