A number of police calls are the result of an individual not being able cope with their circumstances in an acceptable manner. Having a mental health worker along could not only help the individual, but prevent the police from being put in a position that may require serious force. Good for everyone

Certainly worth a look. Presenting the absurdly high dollar cost is an indication that the city doesn't want the program.

Then we have to hire Mental Health Workers to deal with the Mental Health Workers who go on the calls and have to deal with what LEO sees on a daily basis. In addition to the liability and safety concerns they bring by being "nice" to thugs and criminals.

Let LEO'S do their job. They already have a very difficult job to do. Don't slow them down with "mental health workers."

Can we let the police just do their jobs. Are you wanting to put more people in danger?

No, on the mental health worker, Yes, on a K-9 mental support animal.

If their view points have value, I do. I like this kicker. He has values.

I do care when they are discriminated against by the leagues, who should be boycotted to teach them a lesson, or worse governments like CKC. Christians are under attack in many ways. We need to stand together and fight back economically. Let our dollar$ vote. FJB should be excommunicated. FJB

It will be a remarkable contrast from everyday FJB, Joe won't be getting lost on stage, slurring words, tripping. I wonder what the difference will be? I wonder if Joe will have an earpiece telling him what to say ("pause", "salute the Marines")? We know the moderator will be biased. FJB

The Democratic party had evolved into a Socialistic, corrupt and self-serving group that is bent upon the destruction of the middle class working taxpayer. They have adopted the Cloward-Piven protocol from the 60s, and have carried it farther than anyone ever dreamed possible. I fear the worst.

No need to watch. President Trump will destroy Crazy Joe's teleprompter.
