New Era Blueprint for Management of Crime in America

Our nation must begin to revisit our approach towards defining crime. This new vision on the nature of crime and all of its ramifications must include a new template  on  how to manage and administrate the delivery of crime services from themes of protect and serve to protocols for a new model on policing from staffing to incentives to prevent crime as well as policies that enhance  'due process' concerns  when the police policies are not in synch with the community .

The staff of Plane Ideas has created the following themes which should be a foundation of The New Era of Policing in America

1. Staffing Police Departments with former criminals as police officers. Inserting a social and mental health case worker in police cars on all police calls and patrols.

2. Offering financial incentives for residents to maintain safe venues. Paying a stipend to certain ex-felons to not engage in crime. Providing reduced tax rates and tax deductions for crime free venues.

3. Creating a user friendly 'informant' protocols which assist the police in prevention, safety and security objectives. Creation of  Neighborhood  Public Safe Harbors staffed with conflict resolution professionals.

4. Providing the community with  smart phone apps, links, websites on crime data, research and resources.

5.Advocating for early release of non violent criminals and cleansing of  all criminal records of non-violent juveniles under the jurisdiction of municipal courts

6. Constructing interactive police misconduct commissions with community and police participation with the authority to assign  independent counsel/lawyers/retired judges not affiliated with the government to conduct/investigate/prosecute / administrate tribunals/hearings on the deaths of unarmed citizens by police officers in their exercise of lethal force while 'under the color of the law'.

7.Support for Ban the Box Movement

8.Creation of Arrest Free Zones for Designated Social Behavior

9.Urban Gun and Weapon Disarmament with Gun Buyback programs and tax deductions for those surrendering guns to the police.

10. Crime  and Justice related curriculum in Middle School and High School including on site visits to jails, prisons and morgues

11. Uniform Collective Bargaining Agreements which incorporate incentives that reward the police for reporting 'bad cops' to data collection of complaints, lawsuits, indemnity provisions against police officers, managers, union officials for any settlement and awards against the city or conduct which creates civil liability and damages against their employers .

12. Police Disarmament in selected venues where the police are not permitted to carry their firearms

Deconstruction of the Empire

So here we are in America circa 2017 in the Trump Regime of political illegitimacy. For many Americans it is an opportunity to return the nation to a myth of greatness for others it is the emergence of an America that retreats to the marginalization of people of color, woman and the our nation's civility.

Many Americans will tragically  surrender to the machinery of government with its regimentation and national footprint . Many will accept without any hesitation or challenge a Trump mandate that discounts  the tenants of a healthy society. Public servants fearful of losing their jobs  will rubber stamp and endorse protocols and polices that discount the citizenship  and standing of those who are recipients of government services .

Those impacted by a Trump criminal justice system will bear the brunt of a compromised justice system that will threaten 'due process' and sanction a 'show me your papers' society in the streets and work venues of America. Our environment is in peril the worship of fossil energy will fuel another carnage on the planet and nature. Toxic air , polluted waterways, habitat extinction and other assaults on the planet under the Trump regime will accelerate the peril of humanity in every region of the planet

Of course acceptance , surrender and retreat in the era of the illegitimate POTUS simply will not suffice. Those of us who seek an America where life , liberty and the pursuit of happiness is not just a salad of words will engage the moment and insert resistance with the goal of the deconstruction of a normalized era of Trump. The depressed state of morale in our government workplaces  are opportunities and entry points for radical change agents that disarm the unorthodoxy of the Trump regime.

 Regime Change is plausible but not by employing hollow marches, parades and endless banter and petty rants and arrogant righteousness. In other words we have to be inside the dragon and wherever our interests are in play and in peril. We must partner and collaborate with those inside the Trump regime to influence and alter the trajectory of all of his narratives across all of the bandwidths of the government reach in both the private and public sector.

We must activate, impact and influence the integrity and principle of those inside the Trump fortress with our agenda and narratives . We can empower those  who are the carriers of the illegitimate POTUS  mandate with ideas and constructs they can employ to disarm ,disable and deconstruct. The destiny to alter the trajectory of America starts with you and me and us.

Resistance designed to deconstructed is  Regime Change without being televised.
