One of the 45 goals of communism in America is to “transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].” Albuquerque, New Mexico just did that.
City officials announced this week that the New Mexico locale will begin using unarmed social workers to respond to certain 911 calls, particularly those dealing with homelessness and addiction. The change, they hope, will reduce some of the burden on police officers and limit the potential for armed conflict.
The newly formed Albuquerque Community Safety will respond to emergency calls concerning homelessness, substance abuse, addictions and mental health. Tim Keller, the city’s Democratic mayor, said the move will keep police officers who don’t specialize in these areas from responding with force.
The thinking behind it sounds good. Police officers are not necessarily mental health experts. But the typical 911 call for these sorts of folks is probably directed at actual illegal behavior. In most liberal cities, homelessness is not a crime (because the policies of the Democrats running them made them homeless, most likely). Loitering, vagrancy, panhandling, defecating, and urinating on public walks and ways, are increasingly accepted behavior in Utopia. Even petty theft has been dismissed in some locales as not criminal.
The result has been predictable; dirty, disgusting, diseases-infested, Hoovervilles, surrounded by increasing rates of crime and violence.
Sure, social workers are probably part of the solution, but what happens after one gets beaten, robbed, raped, or killed?
The Democrats will have an excuse readily available. Systemic something or other, never acknowledging that after decades of one-party rule in these left-wing city-states, the system is theirs and no other.
I hope it works out, but I know it won’t because it was never meant too. Goal 38 is not about doing anyone a solid it is about deconstructing the institution of policing while using the opinions of like-minded mental health “experts” to define and punish thought crimes. And If you think I’m a conspiracy theorist, try having an unapproved non-conformist thought on the average American University campus.
This whole business is just taking that form the testing stage into the real world. It is the next step in silencing dissent.
