Turns out that decreased presence of policing does not actually mean an increase in crime, contrary to what authoritarian fearmongers would have us believe.
Seems like all wins for me. The police slow down/become less responsive and we get:
-Decreased state revenue generation for petty fines
-Decreased complaints of major crimes
Have the authoritarians been lying to me about what a smaller/less aggressive police force will cause?
