I know it's been established I'm the only one here who cares about sports but for posterity reasons just wanted to state my Super Bowl 2020 prediction is the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Chicago Bears. I mentioned a long time ago I'm actually really good at predicting and normally get at least one of the two teams right (would have gotten the Saints right this year had the refs not screwed them). I just hope we don't see the Patriots again. It's not even a matter of not liking them (even though I also hate them), but it gets boring seeing the same team in the playoffs year after year and it would be nice to see new teams for a change. Hence, why I was happy when HeadMarshal's Raptors beat the Warriors.
P.S. I thoroughly acknowledge my hypocrisy if the Yankees win the World Series this year as I'd like to see that again and again and again and again just like the 90's
Just realized for once I was way off and need to admit it lol
I'm going to admit my own ignorance here but does anyone know what this "abolish prison" movement is about. I've said before I agree with the general premise of "defund the police"- which is NOT to get rid of police but allocate resources used for them to social services instead and retool police departments to only deal with the most serious issues. I think the wording is what I have the issue with, if there can be a way to have a shortened phrase otherwise it should be done- but in cities where this practice was done crime actually went down, and trust in police actually increased.
But abolish prison seems for the most part to focus on rehabilitation which is a good thing but it seems it may want no incarceration at all- apparently even with murderers they pay restitution to families or something. I think that's way too extreme but perhaps I'm misunderstanding. I'm all for prison reform and focusing on rehabbing and not punishment- but there are some people in our society that need to be caged and away from others. Once again though I'm admitting my own ignorance here so perhaps someone else here knows more what is actually meant by "prison abolition."
