What happened to the rest of the sentence?

"Police aren't trained enough and they are killing people; let's take money from their budget and direct it to services that already have the skills and expertise to meet the needs of the people involved."

You do know that the people working in the ER dealing with drunk, violent patients aren't armed, don't you? The people that work with drug addicts aren't armed, staff working in psychiatric wards aren't armed, police in the UK aren't armed; they know how to de-escalate a situation without shooting everybody.

"One of the most difficult issues in the United States with regard to drug addiction is access to treatment. Individuals who are struggling with addiction have limited access to services if they do not have private health insurance. Publicly funded services to deal with drug addiction are chronically underfunded, under-resouced and over burdened. This can mean that services can only provide short-stay limited focus treatment options for the addict. Relapse is common.

The escalating drug use and worsening symptoms of addiction mean that these people become a public problem and communities are only able to deal with them through incarceration."-Alcoholrehab.com

Are you saying that you'd rather these people were manhandled by the police then imprisoned than that money was diverted from the police and given to services that would rehabilitate them?

Hahahaha!!! Omg you are cracking me up!!! Yea, because grandma who activated life alert is the EXACT same thing as Tyrone beating his wife. Just because the UK isn't armed, doesn't mean they are good. Look at how many stabbings go on in that country. This is America, you have a right to own a gun. The police always need to one step ahead of the threat level. You bring out a knife, they bring out a gun. You bring out a gun, what? Police are just going to blow a whistle?
Do not take money from police, who need better training. Take money from programs like welfare, that breeds criminals, fatherless homes, etc. Get people working and having a sense of purpose. Don't listen to the terrorists that have been sitting on their couch scrolling through Instagram and think they are oppressed.
Use that money for mental health shit.

The UK police has an armed response unit but that's more akin to SWAT - they deploy in situations that have already escalated or at least in theory. They don't give guns to like traffic cops and whatnot.

These thoughts are so nice in sjw theory. Until you are dealing with someone who is "peaceful" then at the blink of an eye pulls a gun. Go be a cop in the UK and tell me how it feels to sit there while daddy SWAT comes 10 minutes later with the gun because you're only allowed a stick. Are any of you law enforcement? Have any of you been on a police ride along?

Gun crime is much lower in the UK than it is here. One of the perks of not letting people have them.

"UK cops teach American police de-escalation tactics

Former Boston Police Department hostage negotiator Chuck Wexler brought some officers from his team across the world to learn how to avoid using deadly force with violent suspects.

The four-day visit presented officers with a variety of training scenarios and demonstrations from Scotland police on how they respond to incidents. U.K. police offered their tactics on how to de-escalate situations or use shields and vehicles for protection instead of weapons.
Language and negotiation tactics showed differences in communication between the agencies and their communities.

“Nobody’s going to die from learning de-escalation techniques,” Wexler told the news site. "It's about time that we step up and this is our chance.”

Scots firearms officers have only used deadly force twice in the last decade, and their last officer to be killed was in a 1994 stabbing".-PoliceOne.com

Are you copy pasting? Lazy. Lead by example. Go to Chicago where they have shootings 100+ each month. Go take a baton and tell me how it goes. Go on a police ride along in Detroit and tell them cops don't need guns. Lead by example

If you are sharing articles by typing them out word for word instead of c&p'ing them, you have way too much time on your hands.

You're recommending vigilantism, I'm recommending that dedicated services get the funding they need instead of expecting the police to deal with situations that they don't have the training for.

And that's if they haven't been stabbed 17 times with a kitchen knife by the assailant. It's an everyday thing for UK police to be stabbed.

"There were 34 firearm homicides in the US per million of population in 2016, compared with 0.48 shooting-related murders in the UK.

Knife murders are also higher stateside: there were 4.96 homicides “due to knives or cutting instruments” in the US for every million of population in 2016.

In Britain there were 3.26 homicides involving a sharp instrument per million people in the year from April 2016 to March 2017."

It's not an everyday thing.

Hah! You share an article from the knife crime capital of the UK as if that's representative.

The American knife crime homicide rate is about 50% higher than the British knife crime homicide rate - and the American gun crime homicide rate is about ten times higher than the British knife crime homicide rate - and both are normalised by population size. You’re more likely to get stabbed to death in the US than the UK.

"Each local context is unique, and Scotland has its own particular experience of these issues. Around 14 years ago, stabbings certainly seemed to be a ‘Scottish problem’, with Glasgow gaining a dubious reputation as the UK’s capital of knife crime. At that time, young men were routinely turning up at hospital emergency departments with horrific knife wounds. Gang-related violence had become a depressing - and seemingly inevitable - way of life for many. In 2005, both the UN and the World Health Organization published reports highlighting the issue and Scotland’s appalling record on violent crime.

In response, the authorities took the bold decision to form Scotland’s Violence Reduction Unit (SVRU). This was Scotland’s first independent centre of expertise on the issue, funded by central government since 2006.

The SVRU offered something different. It was independent of the police and so did not treat violence as a traditional law and order matter. Rather, it viewed violence as a public health issue – as a “disease affecting communities”. And because that disease is caused by poverty, inequality and despair – issues that lie outside the bounds of policing – the SVRU knew that an alternative approach was required, one that dealt with the root causes of violence and tried to prevent it happening in the first place.

The impact in Scotland has been profound. All the key indicators point towards a sustained long-term reduction in levels
of violence. Most recently, the publication of Scotland’s Crime and Justice Survey showed that violent crime has reduced by nearly half in the last decade. Similarly, emergency hospital admissions for assault fell by 55% between 2008-09 and 2017-18. During the same period, the proportion of recorded serious assaults cleared up by the police has increased from 62% to 79%. Between 2006-07 and 2017-18 there has been a 65% decrease in crimes of handling offensive weapons
(not used in crimes against the person).

Amazing, huh? It turns out that criminals are actually just people and that it's possible to prevent crime when you tackle the causes.

Dude, no matter what you post, I WIN. Because you and I both know you would never become a cop in Chicago and refuse to carry a gun. Sorry, it must suck to suck

Hahaha!!! You won't even admit it. I love this. Come on, stop dodging it. Would you work in the murder capital of America without a gun?

You think you win by creating a false premise? Nobody is asking cops in Chicago to work without guns, the suggestion is that their funding is directed to services that are better equipped to deal with the situations that the cops are handling badly.

Hahahahaha!! Right!! The softer our police become, doesn't mean gangs will do less murder. It means less people will feel safe in the job and wont join or stay in the force. But hey, this guy sure can copy and paste some articles he found online, good for him!

They weren't spending that money on training anyway. I know ice cream vendors whose training courses last longer than police academy courses.
