    All good man. I didn't think you were being a dick about it.

    If testing wasn't so limited in other areas I'd probably go get tested every couple weeks since I'm the one in our house that goes to the store and stuff. Part of me would feel like I was taking tests away from people/areas that need it more unless I had reason to think I was exposed.

    I've still never gotten a test. Waiting til I am one degree of separation or showing symptoms aside from my general hangovers.

    I assume THEBLUERAIDER wanted to know since he's so goddamn nosey.

    Honestly.... rapid testing as frequently as possible would be ideal. The more people that know and can isolate the better.

    It's blows my mind that both times we've went to this site there has been almost no one there. Max I've seen is probably 10 cars. I shouldn't be surprised that people aren't getting tested when it's available that easily but I am.

    Did you cover the usual East Nashville Facebook group checklist before confirming said gunshot? It could have been a:

    • firework
    • Train
    • Helicopter flyover from fort Campbell
    Thanks

    Two people murdered in East last week, constant car break-ins from kids with guns, and now an armed mugging near 5 points last night.

    Interesting comment from the victim

    Lol, that’s a hyperbolic FB post. He would rather die than shoot a child? One that was old enough to commit a crime with a gun? Ok.

    but we should definitely defund the police. That will fix everything

    First, there's obviously a bit of exaggeration but the point appears that he wouldn't shoot someone who was robbing him...which I agree with. People don't deserve to die for theft.

    Second, a friendly reminder that violent crimes and the rate of violent crimes are significantly down (and are continuing on a downward trend) since the 70s and 80s. You are just hearing about it more through news and social media.

    Third, absolutely defund the police (Metro Police raid incorrect apartment with child inside) and redirect those funds to social programs that help people who feel the need to rob in order to survive.

    I think people hear “defund the police” and think it means “abolish the police”. Theyre not the same thing.

    totally agree. We have been constantly defunding social programs for years and no one seems to care (schools, government assistance, etc..) we don’t need a police force that’s basically a peace time military. Let’s focus on having our police do actual police work and redirect the military funding for them back to schools, etc.

    Someone robbing you at gunpoint doesn't deserve to die if you shoot them first?

    Murders and violent crime is up YOY in Nashville.

    Criminals target the wrong houses and people all the time. A 4 and 6-year-old were shot in early July by stray bullets. I will not agree with defunding the police because of a mistake, that resulted in no injuries. Hopefully, they fix what went wrong so that it doesn't happen again.

    Defund the Community Oversight Board and our bloated 40 person metro council. We have the third-largest metro council in the nation. Give that money to the needy.

    Defund education because I do not and will not have kids in Davidson County? Just because you either don't like the police or need the police, doesn't mean that other people in the county should suffer. MNPD is understaffed and has not grown proportionally to the massive population growth over the last decade.

    I don’t think the girl pointing a gun back at a person who is already pointing a gun at the girl solves anything.

    Does she wait until after she’s robbed and shoot them in the back? Do they do an old fashioned shootout and take 10 paces and turn around?

    she lost a few possessions and was able to go home. I’m not understanding the issue. She shoots the kid over a robbery and this is a national headline and likely civil rights issue.

    Hot take but guns do nothing to de-escalate a situation

    That example doesn’t make sense in this situation. I don’t think anyone in here is saying we need to do away with police. We absolutely still need police. We can reallocate money to other situations that will help both citizens and the police. We can’t expect police to police, social worker, caregiver, etc all in one. So let’s set up a system where police can succeed in their roles and limit bad interactions by utilizing other methods

    Nashville Knight, Harry Twatter, and Cardeja really cannot stop ruining this thread with their constant shitty political grievances. I remember when this thread was about food and music.

    Also, Capstone, BIGASSTITTIES (lol) and Penguin are dead right.

    I don't really wanna get into this argument but I will say two things:

    1. Ask yourself what would be an acceptable crime for your child to deserved to be killed for. If your child was killed because they robbed someone, that would be acceptable to you? You would agree they "deserved" to die?

    2. So the police's budget has continued to rise and violent crimes in Nashville have continued to go up? Sounds like the police aren't doing their job on an acceptable level. Maybe its time to explore some other options or plans.

    Let me pose a hypothetical:

    If you are a law abiding, tax paying citizen and a smaller, more restrictive police force is put into place, are you happy?

    The police won’t be restricted when engaging dangerous criminals. There will still be well armed, well trained police on MNPD. Instead of needing multiple cops for an encounter with a homeless person, maybe we dispatch a social worker and 1 police officer. Again, no one is saying we limit the police in dealing with dangerous criminals. It’s reallocating resources so the police force and be as effective as possible at stopping dangerous criminals and deploying resources other than armed police for non-dangerous situations.

    I understand that point of view, and I agree.

    Im just saying, if I’m a criminal and I know the chances of being caught or punished for my crimes is low, it’s going to encourage me to commit more crimes, knowing there are no consequences.

    This is a very popular tactic of the left and they do it in small doses so it doesn’t draw attention. Minimize crimes.
    Hey, it’s just a little bit of weed, no big deal.
    Hey, it was just a little robbery, no big deal.
    Slippery slope here

    I can see this point if all crime was a conspiracy, Organized, pre-meditated, etc. We know most crime is a product of socio-economic status. Most of the people committing crimes aren’t doing it as a career with thoughts of the police force. Same with the death penalty not being a deterrent.

    My problem with that is I think this policy would create more career criminals.

    Ex: A 16yr old hangs with the wrong crowd and one night decides to go break into cars. They score some cash and other valuables. They don’t get caught. They then get more brazen and progress to more frequent crimes or higher level crimes. Because, why not? They’ve never faced consequences for these crimes, the cops don’t really seem to care.

    And if that’s the case, these crimes become more common and a young kid making a stupid decision now views this as a reliable way to make a quick buck.

    I have no idea on whether cops care or not about arresting criminals. I do know that “defunding police” doesn’t necessarily mean not having enough well trained police officers to respond to crimes. If anything, a new system would free up police officers from non-violent/felonious offenses to respond, investigate, etc to violent/felonious offenses. Again, we’re not removing police. We’re looking to reallocate who does what.

    Can someone tell me why weed is still illegal and we spend $$$$ on the war on drugs? Seems like a much cheaper problem to address upstream rather than downstream.

    It's just good old fashion racism. Blacks and Latinos get arrested nearly 4X as often for it as whites despite usage being consistent across races

    The jobs it creates would do wonders for the many very poor parts of the south

    The entire defunding police is directly related to this idea. And has nothing to do with getting rid of police officers.

    Everybody gets an equal playing field. And just because you have a shitty tribal tattoo and call yourself a cop doesn’t entitle you to military weapons or vehicles. Those funds go away. So does the war on drugs.
