Video: In violent Detroit, private citizen starts 911 service

In bankrupt, violent Detroit, the city shut down 911 service. That provided an opening for citizen Dale Brown to start his own service. As he says in the following video, he started with a staff of “me, a dog and a rifle.”

And as he says, cops nowadays are trained to “protect themselves” above all else. But the real cop job — and the way cops were trained up until about 40 years ago — is to protect the citizens, even if the cop’s life is in danger. Brown said that the way to ending violence is not more violence by the government, but creating a safe and healthy environment. Violence is only the last resort, not the first. He said they train their police in 100 ways to resolve conflict before force is used.

Somebody from violent Oakland should look this guy up and get his advice.

    Like I said before, the police public unions have priced themselves out of a job. The public pensions come before public safety, schools, and health care. There are far more retired NY police than there are active police.
    The only answer is the second amendment. Militias and fire arms for the people, just like the framers of the constitution wanted.
