Need Not Apply Has Turned to Need Not Comply. The following article has been written by Mike Simonelli. It includes editorial content which is the opinion of the writer. Two headlines on March 9, 2023, detailed remarkably divergent outcomes from what should have been ‘routine traffic stops’ where the law enforcement officers (LEOs) asked a few questions and possibly issued a few tickets. During both incidents, the LEOs acted lawfully, and the drivers refused to comply with their instructions. In the end, one stop turned an uncooperative family into multi-millionaires and the other resulted in an armed male being the subject of justified deadly force.

Pendulum Will Come Back Around
The Pendulum Will Come Back Around. The history of criminal justice in the United States is often described as a pendulum, swinging back and forth between strict punishment and lenient rehabilitation. People on all perspectives are coming to the realization that police defunding is a debauched idea. One has to look no further than some cities who tried it, only to realize an increased response time, slower investigations, less officers for service calls, and most importantly increase higher crime rates. Soon when citizens will demand more once again from their police and sheriff departments, asking “where’s the police?” only to look no further then what they asked for a year earlier. Defunding or dismantling the police means different things to different people, but largely, those who call for it are asking for money to be divested from the police and instead put into community initiatives like for education, jobs and mental health services. Which is still a noble idea for improvement, and should be explored. But is good at the use of monies and it will protects citizens of city or county?
