I find when I'm talking about police, the most important thing I can do is to try to convince people that police do not keep them safe and are not designed to. I like to point out that they are there to protect property, not human lives and as I'm in the US, I can point to a Supreme Court ruling where it was so-ruled that they had no obligation to protect people. The number one thing that keeps people clinging to police is fear for personal safety. Pointing out that before police, personal safety was still handled within communities helps.

Yeah this is what I have been thinking so far, it seems the best way to go, the problem is it's not easy to be airtight with arguments in such a small space, which is what I usually try to go for.
