Listened to this on Sunday morning, which was a near perfect way to experience those songs

On criminal justice issues, the distance between the Democratic candidate for governor of Florida and the Republican candidate for governor of Florida is a chasm.

Chief Colina: “Addiction may be a law enforcement problem but there is no law enforcement solution for addiction. There may be, however, a medical solution.” We got you, Chief . and stand ready to assist.

The war on drugs doesn’t only enrich criminals and infringe civil rights, it corrupts law enforcement

Finally, just to be clear, I’m really not trying to get anything out of this. Just trying to share my experiences. I have spoken to a lot of Chicagoans about this who have had similar experiences. Many are very afraid to talk about these things publicly

I remember when some of the guys found out that I had some Jewish friends. They started using the K word a lot. Many of these guys were sons of Chicago cops and many followed suit. I never met white people who hated Tiger Woods until I met their Dads. Also, Mt. Greenwood = Trump

Two things: 1) I didn’t say “all” I said “every” meaning each individual. 2) I grew up in Chicago. Never heard the N word said until I started hanging out w/ guys from South Side Catholic high schools. The racism got worse when some couldn’t get police/fire jobs. Blamed blacks/AA

I appreciate the engagement. Re: 2., I think there’s so much that’s unrelated to $. Less “proactive policing” may lead to greater clearance rates, for example. Or just firing every racist cop from Mt. Greenwood. They think appalling things about those they should be “serving”

At some point, many said, “No slaves in this country isn’t an option” and “Women working outside of the home isn’t an option.” We need to imagine peace and justice and fight for it. For many in Chicago, things can’t get much worse. Why abandon hope?

Re defunding, shifting SIGNIFICANT resources from law enforcement to evidence-based interventions in the education, mental health/trauma, & poverty arenas may lead to lower crime/greater happiness. That’s assuming that’s the goal. The goal may be control of certain people...

Dan Herbert, lead attorney for Chicago police Officer Jason Van Dyke, just walked into the courthouse in advance of his closing argument in the trial. A Chicago sergeant monitoring protesters outside wished him luck and shouted, “You got this, sir!”
