Liberalism if I had to choose. I like Libertarianism to an extent but goes way too far on some issues.

They're both good ideas, but I think Liberalism is better.  The idea that they both share  is that its the state's job to serve the people and not the people's job to glorify the state.

Effective policing requires to know when backing down is in the best interest of public safety.  By all accounts, the culture of the Ferguson Police was ignorant of that fact, and instead treated Cartman of South Park as a role model for how to be a police officer.

Liberalism -as an anecdote, I especially like Arlington County's snow removal ordinance, passed in the aftermath of the 2009-2010 winter.

Is there any equivalent in libertarian-oriented states like New Hampshire?

Both these ideologies' meaning differs between Europe and USA. That said, Liberalism has been, by far, a more important ideological current. It has shaped the societies of developed countries to a considerable extent.
