I could not follow a movement that makes one race more important then another. All people matter. Maybe we need to stop killing ourselves. I say this because it seems to me that We as blacks don’t care about our own race. If we want people to take us series then we need to stop killing ourselves and start learning some critical thinking skills.

Abolishing and defunding will only make it worse. Those are insane solutions. Reforming and demilitarizing will make it better. Funding schools will make it better. Obama militarizing the police certainly didn't help too.

American policing has never been a neutral institution. The first U.S. city police department was a slave patrol, and modern police forces have directed oppression and violence at Black people to enforce Jim Crow, wage the War on Drugs, and crack down on protests. When people ask for police reform, many are actually asking for this oppressive system to be dismantled and to invest in institutions, resources, and services that help communities grow and thrive. That’s why many protestors and activists, following in the footsteps of Black-led grassroots groups, are demanding immediate defunding of police departments. The idea of defunding, or divestment, is new to some folks, but the basic premise is simple: We must cut the astronomical amount of money that our governments spend on law enforcement and give that money to more helpful services like job training, counseling, and violence-prevention programs. Each year, state and local governments spend upward of $100 billion dollars on law enforcement—and that’s excluding billions more in federal grants and resources. Budgets are not created in a vacuum. They can be changed through targeted advocacy and organizing. We can demand that our local officials (including city council members and mayors) stop allocating funds for the police to acquire more militarized equipment and instead ask for that money to go toward community-run violence-prevention programs. We can demand that our federal government redirect the money that funds police presence in schools to putting counselors in schools instead. Funneling so many resources into law enforcement instead of education, affordable housing, and accessible health care has caused significant harm to communities. Police violence is actually a leading cause of death for Black men: A recent study found that 1 in 1,000 Black men can expect to be killed by police, and public health experts have described police violence as a serious public health issue. For a country like ours, which considers itself a modern democracy that pushes ideals of freedom and justice for all, that number should be truly shocking. Much of the work police do is merely engage in the daily harassment of Black communities for minor crimes or crimes of poverty that shouldn’t be criminalized in the first place. Consider this: Out of the 10.3 million arrests made per year, only 5 percent are for the most serious offenses, including murder, rape, and aggravated assault. These are the ones that truly threaten public safety. The other 95 percent of arrests are for things like traffic violations, marijuana possession, unlawful assembly, and even removing a shopping cart from store premises. That means that police spend the most resources going after minor incidents that actually don’t threaten everyday life but do lead to mass criminalization and incarceration. And as you know, some arrests are made for doing nothing at all beyond being Black. We have little evidence, if any, to show that more police surveillance results in fewer crimes and greater public safety. Indeed, funneling police into communities of color and pushing officers to make arrests just perpetuates harm and trauma. Yet since the 1980s, spending on law enforcement and our criminal legal system has dramatically outpaced that in community services such as housing, education, and violence prevention programs. Those are the institutions that help build stable, safe, and healthy communities. For example, Los Angeles’s budget gives police $3.14 billion out of the city’s $10.5 billion. Spending on community services such as economic development ($30 million) and housing ($81 million) pale in comparison to the massive LAPD budget. (On Wednesday night, after years of Black Lives Matter grassroots activists demanding a cut in LAPD’s budget, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced he would cut $100 million to $150 million from the LAPD budget and reinvest those funds in communities of color.) Similarly, in New York City, the government spends almost $6 billion on policing, which is more than it does on the Department of Health, Homeless Services, Housing Preservation and Development, and Youth and Community development combined. By shrinking their massive budgets, we can help end decades of racially driven social control and oppression as well as address social problems at their root instead of investing in an institution that further oppresses and terrorizes communities. In addition to divesting from police and reinvesting the savings in nonpunitive programs that benefit public safety and health, there are other critical steps we need to take to foster the systemic change people across the country are calling for: End enforcement of minor offenses that drive street-level harassment. We can do this by repealing laws across the country that criminalize minor behaviors and passing laws that legalize activities such as marijuana possession and distribution. End the presence of police in schools, which exacerbates racial inequalities, puts immigrant students at risk of deportation, and limits opportunities accessible to low-income students. (Minneapolis Public Schools just voted to end its contract with the city’s police department.) Develop mobile crisis services, peer crisis services, and crisis hotlines and warmlines (where people can call when they just need to talk to someone who understands what it’s like to live with mental health problems) to support people who have a behavioral or mental health crisis. Ban pretextual stops and consent searches that act as common mechanisms for police to engage in racial profiling and circumvent legal standards. Implement common-sense, civilly and criminally enforceable legal constraints so there will be only rare instances in which officers are able to use force against community members. For too long, the focus on police reform has been dominated by reforms that try to reduce the harms of policing rather than rethink the overall role of police in society. But six years after the Black Lives Matter movement rose to national attention, activists across the country are coming together to demand what many have known has been the solution all along: defund the police.

This entire idea is based on the supposed innate “goodness” of people— which is ABSURD. People are NOT inherently good, they are inherently selfish and self-serving. EVERY person is... regardless of gender, race, or whatever brush that people can be painted with. The Summer of 2020 screams this truth out to the high heavens... that much is obvious. Let’s not fool ourselves. 😐

In my country we tried this social services partner with police with certain specific problems with civilians or emergency calls but it was halted when a domestic violence end up killing the social worker and two police officers..and several cases where the social worker got taken as hostage there’s even a case where the social worker was raped.. but America should try it.. they have more resources.

Think we need Police reform And Not abolition. What if 3 robbers enter your home? What are you going to do?. If you have a firearm (I also have one) you can use it and then call the law. Trust me If you Abolition the police then I promise you that that there will be havoc on the streets. I also think that if we just bump up the taxes on greedy corporations then we can invest into communities and not defund or abolish the police. What I would like to see is police reform. Better training and also better ways on reducing poverty. I propose that we Cut welfare significantly and only give it to those who actually need it and not give it to lazy and unemployed men for example. Because we have to stop giving free money to people who don’t wanna work or pay taxes. If the government reduces welfare that means people start looking for jobs.I would give it to single mothers Who actually need it for example. And also I will incentivize a $100 Once they find a stable job. You might say how is all this going to get paid? And how much money will it take.?. And where should we get this money from? Well the answer is that through taxation. I would tax greedy mega churches. I will also text Amazon because they been getting tax breaks recently. I would also stop printing money for five months. So far I’ve calculated it it will take around $600 billion to get this done. Also I would like to include that with the taxation we can get Amazon to cough up a good amount of money. According to my estimates it will be around 700 billion dollars. That $700 billion will be use to lower the countries debt deficit. And the other $600 billion will be collected from mega churches and greedy corporations and politicians and that will be used to pay for this project that I have in mind. If you have an idea on what should I do if or if you disagree or agree with my idea please Comment or reply. Disclaimer I am not a Republican or a Democrat. I think they’re both fucking awful. I am a Lincolnist . But most importantly I am just a concerned American.

Yup, when someone is screaming like a banshee, and waving a knife around because they're outta their mind, definitely the time to call in the SS (social services). Seriously, they won't just be able to handle it, they'll love doing it. Worker: "Now sir, just calm down, it's just fine..." Crazy guy with knife: SLASH SS: "AHHHHHH!~! CALL THE POLICE!" Oh, wait. There aren't any. They've been defunded and "replaced". Next up: Shouldn't we Arm Social Workers?

Ahem... Defund the Police. (Trying really hard to not LOL and get really sarcastic). Y'all are NUTS. While we need a whole lot more funding for things like mental health, defunding the police is NOT the way to go. Why? Try this: "9-1-1, what is your Emergency?" "They're breaking down my door! 3, maybe 4 guys!" "Okay, I'll route some of our remaining officers. They ought to be there in a hour and a half, two at most. Just stay calm, and do whatever the intruders ask if they get in." "Lady, they're in! They're in!! They're raping my wife and daughter, I need help NOW!" "I'm sorry, but the officers are busy, and you're currently the 7th call for response. They'll come when they're done with the previous 6...."

Don’t defund the police to make new departments add to the department, better training better education better pay and more social workers that deal with different issues. So when there is a problem you can categorize it and have the issue resolved by one department, as well as not have potential overlap. I hate idiots man

Please give that revolutionary and ambitious Minneapolis City Counsel a chance. Their groundbreaking plan could change the face of policing in America and usher in an exciting new model for this country. Those 12 visionaries have a brilliant rollout to eliminate all 'privilege' and social problems. Once the police are abolished, courts are eliminated, citizens create their own laws and become the stewards of their own communities. This ushers in an advanced society that "policed" city members would never understand. Cops are a thing of the past. If a dangerous gunman is shooting up a venue and causing multiple homicides, we don't need obsolete law enforcement agencies of yesteryear. Instead of cops sent into a viscious shooting scenario, this 100K/ year salaried City Council envisions dispatching a team of experts: a talented social worker, massage therapist, aroma therapy specialist, acupuncturist, barista, a fluffer and award winning cellist, Yo-Yo Ma. This Minneapolis po-po free transformation will be a gift from the devil. These lefties' faces look like they've never lived in reality.

I’m 12 years old. I’m scared of scary movies and bugs. I’m scared of Covid-19 and human beings. I’m scared of criminals like rapists, killers, and arsonists. I don’t want the police abolished because a world without police is stupid. I’m someone who if there is the smallest chance something can go wrong, I back out. You adults can purchase guns and restraining orders to protect yourselves, WHAT YOU REALIZE IS WHAT YOU’RE DOUNG TO US, us kids have to put up with the things you do. When you abolish the police, you’re leaving us to pick the pieces, destroying my future. I’ve always realized that if I wanted to be successful, I need to start young. Just yesterday, I was crying to myself in a corner “ I’m going to die, I’m going to die, I’m going to die” I’m 12 and I tell myself these things so that when it all goes horribly wrong, at least I know was prepared for the end. DON’T DESTROY MY FUTURE!

Community based anti - violence programs and after school programs are a great idea. More resources and more professionals are a great idea.

(honestly I have a bunch more questions but I'll stop there) I mean this V quickly became "abolish the police" and I'm not against that as long as they can explain specifically what it is that's going into the replacement, and how it would be implemented top to bottom, because it can't be NOTHING, and you can't JUST abolish the police and hope some nebulous THEM would implement a change to fill the resultant power vacuum. we saw how that went down in new york and Seattle, so what SPECIFICALLY is the replacement?

It's not the police who need to be retrained, it's the public. We have grown into a mouthy, mobile phone wielding, vulgar, uncivil society with no personal responsibility and the attitude of 'it's the other person's fault', 'you owe me'. A society where children grow up with no boundaries or knowledge or concern for civil society and personal responsibility. When an officer says "Put your hands up," then put your hands up! Don't reach for something in your pocket, your lap, your seat. There's plenty of reason for a police officer to feel threatened, there have been multiple assaults and ambushes on police officers lately. Comply with requests from the officer, have your day in court. Don't mouth off, or fight, or refuse to comply... that escalates the situation. Police officers are our sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters. They're black, white, brown, all colours, all ethnicities, all faiths, male and female, they are us. They see the worst side of humanity... the raped children, the bloody mangled bodies of traffic victims, the bruised and battered victims of domestic violence, homicide victims, body parts... day after day. They work holidays while we have festive meals with our families. They miss school events with their kids, birthdays, anniversaries, all those special occasions that we take for granted. They work in all types of weather, under dangerous conditions, for relatively low pay. They have extensive training, but they are human. When there are numerous attacks on them, they become hyper vigilant for a reason, they have become targets. When a police officer encounters any person... any person, whether at a traffic stop, a street confrontation, an arrest, whatever... that situation has the potential to become life threatening. You, Mr & Mrs/Miss Civilian, also have the responsibility of keeping the situation from getting out of control. Many law enforcement officers are Veterans. They've been in service to this nation most of their lives, whether on the battlefield or protecting us here at home. They are the only thing that stands between us and anarchy in the streets. If you want to protect your child, teach them respect.

@GS-068 I know China and Cuba are Marxist. How did that work out? BLM is going right by Karl's playbook with blm and blacks are beginning to see through it. Maybe blm picked the wrong slogan. Stalin said, “Slogans are still more important in the political sphere, when one has to deal with tens and hundreds of millions of the population, with their diverse demands and requirements. How will this happen in the United States? As to what sort of governmental crisis will occur, we cannot say. It could be a series of Watergate/Abscam scandals one after the other. Or it could be an attempted coup. Or any other sort of crisis. The point here is not what specifically will touch off the revolutionary situation, but how, in general terms, the revolutionary situation will develop.

Did they answer where the BLM donations are going? Edit: When officers commit wrongful murderous crimes, just arrest and jail them within 48 hours! Skip the politics and non-sense and create a penalty that would prevent evil officers from abusing power! Abolishing and impairing the police is not the right path! Social work and educating citizens on nonviolence tactics is a pipe dream! Also, please ask Ms. Cullors where BLM donations are going and ask her her opinion on how "Decentralization" has allowed crypto users to fund illegal activities due to "Decentralizations".  Comment below so that I know I'm not shadowed for my rational thoughts!

Police go on strike for /one day/. YOU WILL BEG FOR THEM BACK. I take my family to a nearby park. There's usually a cop there. I'm glad he's there. Top center at 11:40 says we barely have police in communities like mine that support them. WHAAAT? This whole conversation makes my blood boil. Cops should all strike for 1 day nationwide. Teach all of you a lesson on WHY we need them. Announce it 1 month ahead of time. Show you why cops prevent murder, rape. etc.

Stupid teaching stupid. It's exciting to live in a world without police? Are you serious? The only way women are able to get psycho men to leave them alone is by calling the cops on them. The police protect and serve us. These people are obviously doing way too many drugs.

Abolish the police is a stupid slogan and foolish goal. The abolition of police is something that should happen as a result of them not being needed. If we are talking about removing the bad practices of police forces across the USA we need to be abolishing the drug war. And any other talk is a waste of our time.

They should bring a water cannon and lots and lots of Spice of Peace to stop the violence which has been going on for 61 days!! WE ARE TIRED OF IT!! Everyone in this panel is either a traitor, an useful idiot, a commie or demonic. So this country has been so abusive to Trevor that they took him in and give him millions to badmouth the US and even allows him to do it from the comfort of his own home. What a snake. By the way I'm an immigrant woman of color from the D.R. and it's repulsive her this snake talk the way he talks about a country that has done so much for him.

This seems to be quite hypocritical of you, Trevor. Specially when you were so in favour of allowing the police to shoot live ammo at the Marikana miners during a protest: https://vimeo.com/352839582 You are so funny...

Y'all need to realize just how much money goes to the police. If that money went directly into the community in the form better anti-racist education, access to mental health care, resources to help the homeless, investing in local businesses, access to healthy food and drinkable water, community building events, etc. we would have less "crime" as more people would actually have some of their needs met. We may not be able to abolish the police right away but it should be where we want to go.

The police are useless. Abolishing the police won't increase crime. Crimes already happen all the time. If we didn't have police and put all that money directly into our communities, crime would go down because more people would have their needs met. The police are just a symbol of white comfort, nothing more.

BLM is a failed, delusional experiment. Natalie Portman is on board because she can afford private security. This bunch will be the first to call police when things hit the fan.

"They can't prevent murder and rape", you are kidding, right? This is a pure insult to try and convince me that social workers can handle murders in a better way. You are talking about the victim, yes, social workers can help a rape victim but they will NEVER catch the raper.

What does ending police violence mean? Sounds like end crime and end laws to me. It's unrealistic. A ticket for speeding is violence.

Defense teams are essential; there's no question about it. We have groups like SWAT, FBI, etc. There's no need for regular patrols to do the job of especialized police and everything else on regular citizens. Police patrols are exactly to look around to enforce order, not to put children in jail and killing disoriented individuals and even people at their homes. Too much policing is insane.

A police officer would have go to the call with the social worker. How dangerous to go alone. Have you seen the Flakka drug people on video. How do think anyone can prevent a rape or murder that is not occurring right in front them? Maybe all of you should take a shift as a cop and really feel the responsibility to deal with any thing that comes up. I have seen video of good cops on YouTube. Called out for noise complaint, one cop found kids playing basketball, and he started playing with them. A cop is as good as the person they are. If you want reform, leave the money where it is. Classes,evaluations, group therapy. And they should get a living wage. My son makes less than a plumber.

Lol, worst Marxist organization ever. You all hate America. Also have you tried reasoning with someone who is mentally unstable, they aren’t predictable. So a social worker might end up getting maimed or murdered, whoops. Last good job Trevor at least he is doing something to bring the voices together. It’s funny how that woman tries to correct him, I mean he’s a man so he must be dumber than her right? Is womensplaing a thing

Calling for more police should be a normal process wherever crime is high. However, we cannot overlook the impact that systemic racism has had on black communities over time in areas such as: education, healthcare, jobs, housing, the family unit, etc. As it stands, law enforcement has become a part of the devastating impact of systemic racism. As a result, calling for more police can no longer be seen as just a part of a "normal" process for helping to fight crime in black communities, especially when the police have become a part of the problem. We must rethink what it means to have (more) police in black communities and look towards alternative solutions.

@Taylor .Cline Go back and see what white Southern Democrats did to FDR so that only poor southern whites could get the advantages/benefits of the New Deal--the start of the modern welfare system. You will find that it was mainly whites who were on welfare and still are. Those who blocked blacks from reaping the benefits of that program during the Depression really were incentivizing their constituents with not wanted to work or stay with their families.

where are these people from? most criminal acts take place and the one thing that makes a difference in how, where when and what crime is being committed is the police. if i am going to rob a store, i am going to get in get out fast as i can to avoid the police showing up. remove that element, a robber may just take a 8hr shift down the strip hit all the stores and take everything!!!! if i am going to rape a person, without worrying about the police, i may just as well rape as many people as i can!!! why not kidnap them at gunpoint in the middle of the day everyday?!!!!!

I think the cops get to much money, Like the two cops that knocked over that 75 year old man in buffalo, They are being paid to sit home well facing assault charges, I don't think they need overtime all that does is make them cranky, And I don't think they need Bonuses, ( What For Being Bullies ? )

I really appreciate what Josie Duffy Rice said about taking this opportunity to create a new paradigm for what kind of society we really want. She is spot on that most healthy suburban white communities have little visible police presence. Police are there for an emergency or after the fact if a crime has been committed, but not part of your every day life. We should want everyone to be able to live that same way.

Bunch of gibberish from leftist freaks. If the Republican party could shed its racism it would attract 50% of Democratic voters because many moderate/conservative Democrats and Independents just vote Democrat because voting Republicans means voting for white nationalism. We dont really like the Democrats either.

Abolishing police mean i will be enforcing my 2nd amendment right whether it illegal or not since cops wont be here to protect me or my family, i will be protecting myself and my family in way i see fit to survive. I won't be only one doing this, many free american will be doing it also because guess who will be using the abolishment of police as an advantage? Criminals, gangbanger, drug dealers etc, if you think they dont exist then you live in a fantasy world off of imagination created by the one who brainwashed you. There are more of them than you think. If abolishment do happen. Dont blame me if anyone threaten me and get killed for it, not like id be jailed anyways since the police have been "abolished". Human nature are very dangerous and dying is easier than to live. In the country of U.S.A where there are more gun than people, expect people to be arm everyday and enforcing their 2nd amendment right in public. And again, cops is not there anymore so if they are a racist and they decide to kill you, you be killed for nothing and they wont get charged for it. Pretty much it a free to kill country, it gonna be like a 3rd world country by then. U.S will be a shithole country since many military men wont be thinking about protecting their country from foreign nation but instead will be thinking of their family, so that mean military will decrease and U.S will be a weak nation compare to china and all other country in the top 10s. U.S wont even be a country anymore and will end up being taken over like africa and become a continent nation consist of it own sovereignty own by other nation or itself. This will be the fault of Democrat and BLM. So we as free american should fight back these BLM and Antifa who wishes nothing but destruction of this nation.

If you are going to have this discussion you need to have actual police on this panel. It’s pretty clear that this panel is biased against the police and are all people that agree with each other. Not one of them has done the job that they are preaching against. One guy even said “what do the police actually do?” That right there says a lot about how divided people are on the issue. If you do a panel like this add some police to explain some of the things they do. Otherwise it’s just the blind leading the blind.
