@MissEllieMae Defund the police? As someone who watches victims of sexual and violent crime failed on a daily basis by a justice system that has been cut through the bone, I can tell you with confidence that this is the stupidest thing anyone has said about criminal justice in a long time.
@MissEllieMae The article you are tweeting gives you the context. In the US, spending on police and prisons has soared at the expense of social programmes. In the UK, the justice budget has been cut more than any other area of public life over the last decade.
@MissEllieMae The police have already been defunded, as have the prisons, the CPS, the courts, Probation, legal aid - every element of criminal justice is in crisis. Police investigations take literally years now, and many viable prosecutions still collapse for - yes - lack of basic resources.
