I can see the passion in your writing, and I agree with most of what you have written, except for giving extra funding to the police forces..
In the UK we have the same problems with the "Snowflake Generation" thats found its way into a large and very expensive area of bureaucracy and wasted manpower within our own police forces, we even have a "thought cops" section!..
I know the feeling … still, consider yourself somehow lucky, as here is what we must endure where I live:
County police
Local police
Proximity police
Border police
Community police
Military police
Sanitation police
Traffic police
Economy police
… all are paid from taxes taken from the people they usually oppress (sometimes very violently, even murdering them).

Without the police you have chaos. I dont understand you. If only Black people would be in the police in the US, they would still kill a lot of Blacks. I am sure of that.

The police in Europe seem to be different. Here are two experiences:

So crime is low in Germany: Now for the rest of the story...If you remove the top 20 US cities from your crime report you may better understand.
Also 13% of the US population in black, but those folks have a crime problem that far exceeds the general population.
Now lets compare apples with apples and see where that goes.

When I was drafted into the Army I was confronted by a group of blacks that said I must hate blacks. I told them that I never knew any blacks as growing up on a farm but they were giving me a bad first impression. The same thing may be true of a cop having to deal with confrontational blacks. It's called attitude and respect. Play stupid games, win stupid rewards. Yes there are evil cops that should never have been given a weapon and badge, but if we elect stupid leaders that hire stupid cops, who is to blame? The blue state run by democrats seem to be the hot spots of trouble. It may help to have more black cops to serve in the hood? Then we'll see how that works out?9273
