  1. Yeah that's a problem that's been around since the newspaper was invented. You have the internet now. You can source what's probably true or not by looking at a lot of different sources. This is another right-wing talking about. You're doing a "not all cops" thing, which isn't our point. Our point is that the system of policing causes a lot of harm and should be addressed. Statistically, this harms African Americans more than any other group. Also, look up real data rather than relying on anecdotal evidence.
  2. It is a much larger factor than you have considered. Have a look at how bad the white supremacist problem is in police departments. https://thehill.com/opinion/national-security/537611-white-supremacy-and-american-policing Also these: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/aug/27/white-supremacists-militias-infiltrate-us-police-report https://www.vox.com/2021/1/16/22233514/capitol-riot-rally-police-white-supremacy The shitty policing problem isn't a media problem. That's a right-wing talking point that distracts from the purpose of holding police accountable.
  3. It's actually very debatable as to what causes addiction in the first place. A lot of psychologists and clinicians often say that it's the environment that facilitates the desire and delivery of the drug rather than strictly the drug. It's tangential evidence, but I've known a few people that smoked meth semi-regularly that never got addicted to it. And yeah, I think drugs in general should be decriminalized, but as to the legality of methamphetamines, they're not 100% illegal in the United States already (they are in Canada): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_status_of_methamphetamine
  4. A substantial amount of people relapsing is because of criminalization itself. It will definitely take a long time, but using Portugal as an example, it can show positive effects fairly quickly (obviously, the North American population is much larger than Portugal). It just takes a serious investment from the government in public health care, poverty, and education.
  5. Many clinicians would say that you should admit them for health reasons and treat the underlying problems that cause addiction.
  6. Derek Chauvin guilty of murder in George Floyd's death https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/derek-chauvin-verdict-reached-trial-over-george-floyd-s-death-n1264565 Get fucked, Derek.
