35. .

Part of their responsibility is to prevent vengence, or vigilante type justice.
Then why are they killing people over and over again? Over expired tabs, a counterfeit bill, loose cigarettes? Because cops provide vigilante justice for capital, not people.

But if you believe so strongly in it, why not try your own experiment with it?
I have. In the past couple years -- since I've learned about abolition -- in instances where I might have otherwise called the police, I've worked to find ways to not do so. It's not easy! But so far, it's worked for me.

It sounds to me like you could be either too naive to deal with the realities of human nature or just enjoy trolling people.
Sorry to hear I come across that way. I disagree about your assessment of human nature, though. As humans, we tend to empathize and want to help each other. "Survival of the fittest" for humans means survival of those who can collaborate and provide mutual aid to each other. As humans, we have to learn to hurt each other, and we hurt each other when our needs aren't met. If we can break the cycle of learning how to hurt, we can move toward a world without police.

Have a nice day.
And you as well.
