The Left loves to say that if you cooperate with violent criminals, they will stop being violent criminals. The Truth is a little more complicated. Cooperating with them will not guarantee safety. (When the Left is saying "cooperate," the subject of women and rape never seems to come up.)
Violent criminals will remain violent, even if you are singing Kumbaya.
