I get a sneaking suspicion that the police would just as soon let "social workers" take care of domestic violence calls.

Doubtful the program would last long, though. Every cop I've ever known has nothing but horror stories regarding "domestic violence" calls.

@Johncdvorak After some of these social workers are beaten up or even killed, they will first allow them to have pepper spray, next a taser and ending with a gun. Finally they will also kill black guys, because that's where the majority of crime is.

@MartinJJ @Johncdvorak I know several social workers. One had a knife pulled on her on a call; another one she had to lock herself in a bathroom. Social workers would not do their jobs if they didn't believe they had the full backing of police whenever they called.

The funny thing is that to me, teacher and social worker are almost the same.

Which profession keeps calling the police on boys drawing pictures of guns, miming guns, pretending their fingers are guns etc?

Teachers, female teachers!

@MartinJJ @Johncdvorak more likely social services will contract this work out to companies who will send low paid and even lesser trained "case managers" to deal with these calls.

@Johncdvorak This reminds me of the famous "disturbance call" in the Surviving Edged Weapons documentary https://youtu.be/c4ZpyKSmgdE?t=1531 (warning: violent scene)

I wonder how prepared social workers for this.

@Johncdvorak i don’t think individuals in the middle of a DV row would really be amenable to social workers’ intervention at the time. Like you said, cops have enough trouble with this shit.

@Johncdvorak

What about Joe Biden's plan? Combat domestic violence by “punching at it and punching at it.” Men can hit women in self-defense and violence against women is a problem we need to keep punching at.
