I feel like you're intentionally misinterpreting my words to start an argument: I have no patience for that.
I don't mean to. It's a semantics thing.

When you use the word 'neutered', it has a certain connotation. Police departments refusing to do their job isn't what I would use that word for. Neutered, to me, would mean someone is stopping them from carrying out their role. Police not doing their job I would call abdication, not neutering.

I don't disagree with you that they should be doing a better job of keeping control. But that means not thanking armed vigilantes on the streets, and finding a middle ground between doing nothing and violently beating protesters. That seems to be a struggle for a lot of departments right now.
