Welcome to the Freethought Forum
The lofty high Renaissance and marked mannerism. The heavy and ornate Baroque era, followed by the gentle Rococo. Harsh neo-classicism, rich romanticism, lush naturalism, stern realism, blurred impressionism. Heady surrealism, blockish cubism, postwar Dada, pointy-cornered art deco and cookie cutter Bauhaus. Let us skip the dreariness of the past half century and arrive finally at FF Style.

Defund the Police
Jul 09, 2020 - 10:44 PM - by beyelzu
I know we have a fuck the police thread, and a black lives matter thread. I think defunding police although related deserved it's own thread.

I don't think I need to explain Defunding Police to any of yall, rather I was thinking this could be a thread where we share news and articles about what will hopefully be a medium and long term movement to defund the police.

Puck shared on facebook that St Petersburg FL is going to hire 25 new mental health care workers instead of 25 new cops.

Police in St. Petersburg to step back from nonviolent emergency calls

Quote:
The program will be funded through by a $3.1 million federal grant, plus a $3.8 million city match, that were going to be used to hire more officers. will instead be used to contract with a social services company. Dubbed the Community Assistance Liaison program, the social workers will be dispatched to handle those nonviolent emergency calls rather than uniformed officers

You might have heard that an open letter published by Harpers magazine has caused quite a stir on Twitter. To me it reads like a boilerplate defense of free speech/open debate, but to many very vocal liberals it is an abomination.

I disagree with some of the criticisms but there's no way in hell I would express that disagreement on Twitter, because I don't think I would like waking up to all my social media being flooded with hateful diatribes, being blocked by many people I otherwise respect, and potentially losing my job (a bit of hyperbole in my case, but not for some others).

I don't understand how the left has become the party of any disagreement with any core liberal belief will get you branded and ostracized, but here we are.

Fight me.
