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 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.
