neutering the police
How are they being neutered? The police were able to keep the peace just fine before they were flooded with surplus military equipment. It's so ridiculous now there are school districts that have armored SWAT vehicles in their possession.

When the streets are presented as a war zone by the authorities, it breeds mistrust, even before we get to the issues of racism that are beyond obvious in how those same authorities carry out their duties.

Using deadly force as a last resort is not neutering the police. It's asking them to use common sense.
