Can someone from the “defund the police” faction give me their view on how we should handle situations like this without the police? I am honestly curious to understand the perspective/rationale.

Since Heidi Harmon and Tianna Arata are so anti-police, maybe they can rush down there to Nipomo and protect everyone from an active shooter. Defund the police, right Heidi?
