Do we need the police as an institution?
They are crying “Defund the Police! and even more boldly “Abolish the Police!” Is this an active glimmer of Yemos HaMoshiach when the need for Shotrim (police) will be obsolete, or does something not ring true? Could it be the shoichet is wearing galoshes? Watch and learn…
Shoftim 5751 the Rebbe explains that as Yemos haMoshiach progress there will be no need for a police force. Do the demands of “Defund the Police” and “Abolish the Police” reflect this Messianic ideal or maybe something is not quite right?..
