Ever since what happened to George Floyd, people have considered all police are bad. I think that not all police are bad. They could be good people. People who disagree with me, have been out to protest and they say that we should ''Defund the police.''
Do I agree with this?
I disagree with this because if we don't give the cops money to buy them weapons, they won't be able to tackle crime. We need police to stop crime and to protect us with everything they have but if they don't have their equipment, .how are they suppose to protect us? Police put their life at risk everytime they go to work. As well as they put their lives in danger for us, they also improve the quality of our life for all citizens. They help with emergencies. They are just very important people in our lives and if we deeply think about it, what could we do without them? So because of the reasons I gave above, I think we should NOT defund the police.
Are all police bad?
I am not saying that all police are good people but I do think that there can be some police that don't do their job properly and there are some police who use their power unwisely, but overall, those are just a few bad apples and we shouldn't let the good ones get punished just because of the ones who don't make good choses like the one who killed George Floyd.
What do you think?
