I understand that there's probably a deal of policy that changes when a department has it's "house cleaned." At the same time, I'm biased as well. I'm glad that the LAPD and southern and middle LA is starting to thrive. I'm definitely not against that at all.

I hope you get something out of it other then it's propaganda. That's not a dig. I just know how these types of "educational videos" operate.

@Heezels I'm familiar with PragerU, but haven't watched this video. I'll check it out.

@Heezels good question, about news field days for people acting decent. I'm I'm not talking about nation-wide, I'm talking about the specific pockets who, for years, were made out to be hell on earth. The news should not only share that the formerly dangerous areas of the 90s are doing much better now, but that the LAPD, a notoriously racist gang in the 80s and 90s, have also been doing much better as far as community involvement over the past couple of decades.

I think a news story or documentary on how when the cops in a certain area finally cleaned house (LAPD after Rodney King and OJ), crime in general started to take a turn for the better. I don't know about the other cities, but I personally live in LA. The LAPD in general is well-respected in the community now, and South Central is thriving.

Again, I know this situation is anecdotal, but maybe it could lead to something bigger. if other major police departments clean house and approach communities with support, citizens will actually support them wholeheartedly, and report crimes, and be more responsible for themselves.

Also, I'll add, there are a lot of shitheads in the comments.

" Never, in the history of this country, has MORE policing led to a better black community. I'm not stating that as absolute fact, but I'll definitely state it as strong opinion. I'd be open to evidence proving me otherwise."

This is a PragerU video with Heather MacDonald. Now, I get it. Prager U is definitely right leaning, and biased. But the statistics in the video are hard to ignore. And to me Heather Macdonald is a very good academic on the subject of police use of force, police policy, and crime stats.

I get knee jerk reactions too. So don't feel bad if you turn this on then turn it off. But Just so you know, I think it does help this conversation if you know that I'm not saying that the Police aren't racist for lack of context or naivety.
