4. Here in my little town

people were saying that instead of police being called out to deal with domestic 'arguments' (that's what they called it), we should send in social workers.

I am a social worker.

I am also not stupid, lol. (As in, don't send me!)

A few years ago when we lived in a city down south (Tallahassee, FL), in our neighborhood a neighbor walked next door because he heard a domestic argument.

The abusive boyfriend shot and killed the man who wanted to help.

We're such a convoluted (my opinion) country. I'd love the police to not even carry guns, frankly. But our citizenry is often armed.
