I personally agree,Probably the truth of this matter was another victim of the post-WW2 Cold War, when a great many falsehoods about Soviet history were invented or popularized. The truth about this and many other questions concerning the history of the first socialist state has simply become "unmentionable in polite company."
Demonizing – I use the word advisedly, it is not too strong – the history of the communist movement and anything to do with Stalin has become de rigeur, a shibboleth of respectability. And not only among avowed champions of capitalism but among ourselves, on the left, among Marxists, opponents of capitalism, the natural constituency of a movement for communism.
Larger numbers of police officers and higher allotments of cash and resources have never been proven to reduce crime. In fact, anecdotal evidence often proves that the exact opposite is true. Larger groups of law enforcement officers have been seen to develop a "tribal" mindset; an "us versus them" attitude. Instead of bigger police budgets and greater numbers of police, our communities would be better served with better education and more civilian involvement.
No, they are not being rude to the history of police brutality, and I think that they are just concerned with the country as it is today, and think that they have an idea that will help to bring a whole lot more order in to the cities of today.
I personally think that reducing the amount of juvenile offenders in prison will not lower crime rates, because the people will be more likely to out on the streets committing crime. Some people are always going to be predisposed to be unable to follow the law. These people should be disabled by being in jail, so that they cannot be out hurting other people.
Police brutality is a terrible thing, but with better screening of an officer before they become an officer, and with better regulations in place to protect the officers and the people, a higher budget and greater police force can be a good thing. But at the same time, if to many of our rights are in the hands of the police, that could cause greater threat in the future.
