I don't think you can enforce democracy without a "enforcing" class like the police. You can always ask the regional defense counsel of Aragon, a Anarachist state during the Spanish civil war. (Spoiler they didn't win) So cops are here to stay.
Some solutions would be better training for cops, I am sacred of American cops as a European.( I am not afraid of cops in the country I live in) don't arm all cops I remember that some cops in Japan and some in London/UK don't wear firearms at all. Give cops a more counseling role in set community. I feel a lot off cops have become a piece of grey goo with a firearm. These where just some ideas from the top of my head.
Also fun fact Kiki was the mascot of the videotoaster which was one off the first video production software you could run on a home pc. Also she's the wife of the dude who invented the Tricaster (Vinny's favorite toy) also the same dude who invented the videotoaster. It's the same dude who painted the Vermeer really well.
For the first time in ages i am gonna say at least 20 years i bought a book again 600 pages long that's a lot for somebody who only reads online forum/news articles. Book is about the rise of Burgundy, super interesting as my culture is closely intertwined with them, to bad it's only in dutch so far else i would recommend it. So far i made it too page 200, and i am almost certainly gonna finish it. It made my 3 hour train ride a day more bearable. Also i could totally see a George RR Martin Base the Lanisters on Burgundy dukes power hungry and a shit ton off money, or at least they Showed off as if they had a shit ton of money.
