Think this will catch on elsewhere?

I hope so. This is what people who talk about Defund the Police mean when they say that.


Most of them. Unfortunately, they let the crazy wing of the movement, that actually wants what the name implies, choose the name.

Gonna guess it’s the other way around - a mental health worker is being paired with a police officer - because the way that’s worded, one would think it’s the mental health folks driving all the arrests and having the police officer there makes things a lot better.
