You realize police forces around the country have just been holding up cities for protection money for decades, right?

And you realize their monopoly over funds has destroyed social services that would've helped curb crime without them and saved lives and property anyway, right?
Cut police funding and invest in communities.

Stop throwing our money away for fear and white supremacist paranoia and fund education, infrastructure, social services, and human projects.
Even as crime rates have gone down, every call for cutting police budgets has been met by far right calls of capitulation and people being “weak on crime.” The problem has compounded and it’s time to correct our course, pull back from militarization, and invest in our communities
