    What a silly question.  Would you really want to live in a world like the movie The Purge.  For an orderly society, the police are needed.

    Can you imagine what this world would look like without the police department? Crime, Rapes, Murders, the story keeps going...

    We need cops to enforce the laws. If there where no laws people could kill, steal, and do anything they wanted. I don't really understand how that does not make sense

    Some crimes are "victimless" but most aren't. Put yourself into the place someone who gets robbed or assaulted and maybe you'll understand why chaos and anarchy really isn't the best way to live.

    Because there would be rampart crime, and people cannot live peacefully in a society where there is rampant crime.

    Police were first created to  find run away slaves.

    Fast forwards to modern days:

    The police job is not to protect "the citizens" Their job is to protect the government and so-called leaders and fulfill agendas

    Police are licensed mercenaries and organ collectors. 

    They were made to fulfill order out of chaos. Police have nothing to do with morals. Its whatever the government wants they will follow to make a buck.

    Zachary K Hubbard was assaulted by those Qanon or antifa protestors and the police did nothing.

    Police are just slaves with guns.

    So would it be OK if you were robbed and someone broke into your home?  You would call the police.
