Our policing budgets are absurdly high and non-representative of the danger and threats faced in our cities. We are not at war, but we fund the police like we are.

We need because . It's a systemic issue, one partially fueled by an inflated police budget.

@lanesawyer The thing is, reform is not enough. Policing is a racist institution that has proved resistant to reform. The underlying legal framework that allows them to operate is racist, even the very constitution of the US is racist. The systems of oppression need to be dismantled completely or we will be right back here in another few decades(provided things even change at all).
