Response to DIVINEprividence (Original post)

Fri Nov 13, 2020, 08:03 PM

21. We've tried "criminal justice reform."

The cops are forced to go to a 2-hr diversity training and then get lots more money and retired military equipment. Defund the police and criminal justice reform aren't even the same thing. Defunding means reallocation of police department budgets to less cops and more social service responders to many 911 calls. Criminal justice reform still frames the issue as assuming criminality in most 911 calls. That's exactly the mindset we have to get rid of; most calls to cops do not require someone who responds with a gun and cuffs.
