Okay listeners, I get that this is pretty arrogant of me, to suggest that I have the answer to the entire policing system in the US, when so many experts are already working on this, and people are so divided politically as to whether there is a policing problem at all. But I have been thinking about this for a while, and listening to experts, and reading tons of materials on these issues. I’m also trying to come at this from a place of common sense, which I will explain later on in the episode. 
I’m also trying to approach these issues from a perspective of trying to help society’s members before jail or prison comes into the picture, because I think it’s clear that just throwing a ton of people into prison isn’t helping anyone, law-abiding citizen or not. Prevention is a better solution than punishment. So, come on this fanciful ride with me, where we figure out a utopian system of policing in the US, which ironically, doesn’t involve as much policing as you might think is needed.
Trying to redo the entire US policing system? It’s a big job. Let’s get started.
