Cops as well as those they arrest ore not the problem. They are a distraction to the root cause of the problem. Problem started a long time ago with the passing of the 13th,14th & 15th Amendment which the Democrats hated and help form the KKK to suppress the voting rights of African Americans. Then the Democrats learned to weaponize Welfare. They were against fixing schools, against lowering crimes and both those stopped good companies from coming to their cities with high paying jobs. Proof is your most violent, poorest and highest welfare cities are all run by Democratic administrations. When people aren't given opportunities, have to depend on welfare crime follows. It's the only way to survive. Democrats want people to be dependent on them so they just keep welfare as their tool rather than helping people grow and prosper. It's the only way they can get votes.
