This. But some interesting anecdotes in the comments:
We were utterly confused when a cop started shining his flashlight through the apartment window and pounding on the door. It was myself and 3 friends, sharing a 12 pack and playing Xbox. We were between the ages of 20 and 23.
When my friend opened the door and asked if there was a problem, the cop responded with "Guess?" before demanding all of our IDs. My friend asked again if it was for a noise complaint. The cop said "Bingo" and again demanded our IDs. We said we would keep it down and I told the cop I didn't have my ID on me (it was in the backroom.)
The cop barged into the house, walked across the living room and handcuffed me, then handcuffed my friend for asking him why I was being arrested. The cop was yelling and screaming at us as if he wanted to fight.
One hour later, I was sitting in a holding cell. I had blown a 0.036 BAC and they decided that was enough to take me to jail. I was 20 years and 10 months old, so in 2 months time, I would have legally been allowed to drive with a 0.036 BAC.
By the time I was driven to the police station, about 6 other police cars and about 10 officers had arrived on the scene, including the Sergeant. When my friend asked him how we could have avoided this, he responded with "Next time, don't open the door."
It turned out the cop went to the wrong apartment, saw a few beer bottles, and decided we were the exact criminals he joined the force to stop. In court, he claimed that I had a flushed red face and was slurring my words. He said we had told him he could come into the apartment, but when we immediately got aggressive he had no choice but to handcuff two of us. The judge decided he had more reason to believe the cop than the rest of us and ruled against me.
This happened 13 years ago and I am still angry about it.
Why in the hell was a man with a gun needed to go tell people in an apartment to keep the noise down? Why were my friends and I treated so absolutely poorly? Why were 10 police officers needed for 1 hour to deal with 4 guys playing xbox with a 12 pack of beer? How much money in hourly wages was spent to arrest one 20 year old for drinking 2 1/2 beers?
My personal story is my best argument for why defunding the police is necessary.
