City Council Terminates Police Force—Town Doesn’t Descend into Chaos

“The town of Galveston, Indiana just voted to terminate their police department and contrary to popular belief, chaos has not engulfed the city.”

“Galveston, Indiana is a small town and the likelihood of a crime wave bursting on to the scenes is rare regardless of police presence. However, we’ve seen similar situations involving millions.

The Most Violent Era In America Was Before Europeans Arrived

“There’s a mythology about the Native Americans, that they were all peaceful and in harmony with nature—it’s easy to create narratives when there is no written record.”

“Writing in the journal American Antiquity, Washington State University archaeologist Tim Kohler and colleagues document how nearly 90 percent of human remains from that period had trauma from blows to either their heads or parts of their arms.”
