So I have a unpopular opinion I honestly think the police need to be de-funded

My poem is about a kidnapped little girl asking to go home

    Take me home a poem
    By: Maddy

    Take me home away from here
    Take me home away from my fear
    Take me home I beg of you
    That would have been a dream come true

    Stop at that light I don't wanna be here
    He doesn't listen with his two ears like he should
    I'm sure if I called the police he would

    But the police are de-funded so no one can help
    Please refund the police I yelp

    But all my little voice can do is cry, the police are de-funded so I could possibly die.

1. I agree I've said that multiple times

2. In the poem I said they are defunded so no one can help but I said in the poem I want them refunded if that makes sense

Also I’m confused because in the poem’s introduction you say you think the police should be defunded and now in the comments you changed it to refunded. Is this a typo or what do you mean?

Stealing is never okay. I don’t mean that you can do whatever you want when you protest, I’m just trying to point out that your right is to peaceful protests. You know, holding signs, standing next to what you’re protesting against, praying. NEVER attacking people or stealing or screaming. That is NOT peaceful.

Your name: I know I'm saying to refund all of them. But I'd rather them get ones who want to do it not ones who won't do there jobs

Lydiagrace60 I'm not saying defund the police im saying refund them they have families too they need the money to pay bills. I mean it's great when they work without any pay. But when people are rioting there's nothing peaceful about that it's not protesting anymore it's straight up rioting but I made this to share my opinions and we all have different ones like an example I want to vote for a different President than most people (if I was of age to vote) now back to the peacefully protesting. It's not okay for people to go into stores and use protesting as a excuse to steal that's not okay but believe what you will.

I completely agree. The racist police officers should not be in that position, sure, but that does not mean that we should get rid of cops. Doing that wouldn’t solve anything.

The Bill of Rights – Text

Yes, there are some bad police officers. Yes, there are racist police. But I happen to know a few police officers (one goes to my church) and MOST of them actually do their job. If you aren’t paying them, how many officers are going to help people, do you think? And having an officer to protect you at a defund the police rally is not helping you prove your point.
Also, every citizen has the right to peaceably protest, not fight and hurt innocent people.

We need to fix this honestly

Yes! I believe once protesting becomes violent its not protesting anymore it becomes rioting

Yes! Peaceful protests earn my full respect- but once it turns violent people need to be arrested. That doesn’t mean they’ll go to jail, just take them into custody and hopefully they’ll stop. Both sides have good people. Both sides have bad people. And we need to fix that

Yes they help with so much more. Honestly I think that protesting is a human right but the way people are going about it is just wrong and sad

Yes! And it’s not just crime they help with ya know? They got there to a car accident, and they started helping, because the firefighters couldn’t get there. There will be a lot more accidents, a lot more death, without having people enforcing the laws. Polic officers that take over their position as a way to to bad things should be fired- it’s not that hard to pick them out. But they need to see- if protesters are in the wrong (throwing rocks at buildings and stuff like that) then people need to see it’s not the police that are always bad. They are allowed to do their job. Without police? Well, without police I’m just gonna say, a lot of people are gonna die. And I mean a lot.

Exactly I always get that sad yt commercial where it says thanks for calling 911.. the police are defunded etc it's sad and not ok

Yeah. I agree with everyone in the chat. One of my friends thinks just because *some* police are bad they should all be fired. But if that were to happen, who would protect us from crime? Like in Maddy’s poem, things would turn bad pretty fast, and that’s already beginning to occur with them being defunded
