According to a Gallup poll, 76% of Americans have a "great deal of respect" for the police, the highest percentage since 1967. This constitutes a 12-point jump since 2015; the margin of error is 4 points. On the other hand, only 56% of Americans have confidence in the police, which is still up 4 points from 2015.

Hopefully they can take this data and use it to their advantage. They have a pretty bad rep. There isn't a respectable person in the world who wouldn't call the police if they felt it necessary. \

Well, they've been out of business for a little while, so I guess I'm stuck waiting an hour for the police. I've gotta say though, a police cruiser is a lot more reassuring then a hearse.

That about sums it up for my way of thinking. I appreciate what they do as individuals, but they've never been there to help me when I need them.

lol that's true, didn't even think about that, in general we rely and are too dependent on the police, in some of the older neighborhoods you can still find very old Neighborhood Watch signs, now we just rely and pay for those home monitoring systems which is only for your homes, but the streets are left to random patrol cars. Community involvement and personal responsibility r.i.p.

In my area it would be ignorant to expect police to thwart criminals on the street. I mean chances are fair that the bad guy gets scooped up eventually, but that takes time, and the act is an immediate concern, not years, or months or days or hours. Seconds are crucial, and minutes are all it takes to do the deed and make a getaway. Once they catch the guy the damage is already done....I don't know, Once police are already present and doing their job, I feel like they have diminishing returns through policy, and proactive citizens with a little training, education, and awareness make a bigger difference then police can just from a practical, and statistical standpoint.

If I were more conspiracy-minded, I would think that BLM was an undercover police PR project.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
- Hilaire Belloc -
