. Black unarmed people should not be killed for shoplifting. Transparency is of an unarmed black man being murdered. This employee is known for racially profiling Black People.

While you’re here; DC, like most cities, has a policing problem. 500 million annually for a PD that fuels gentrification, has no means of accountability and overwhelmingly harms Black, disabled & Queer folks. It’s time to divest from systems that don’t protect us all.

As a youth case worker this deadass brings me to tears. Do you known how many young people have to jump the turnstile just to get to safe low barrier shelters every night? Shout out to every DC organizer who lobbied, canvassed, wheatpasted and wrote thier way to this victory❤️

Those named in the NYPD’s gang database often learn that the police have labeled them gang members only if they are arrested and slammed with inexplicably harsh charges or excessive bond.

. supports the bill: It's unfair, "it's set up to penalize people of color, it's racist, it's classist, it's all the things we saw we AREN'T as a city...we have a lot more work to do."

Councilmember Robert White gives a long speech in support, but what a zinger to end it on: "I'm sad that Metro's losing money, but I'm more sad about what's happening to black people."

makes powerful statement: "Our legal system stacks the deck against people of color...it's time for a new strategy." Notes the experiences of POCs cannot be overlooked.

amendment fails 11–2, with Mendelson and Evans voting for it. Ward 8's Trayon White, who originally introduced the fare decriminalization bill, relates anecdotes of police use of force when someone was alleged to have avoided paying fares. he also takes issue w/ Evans' statements

At-Large Councilmember David Grosso and Ward 3 Councilmember Mary Cheh both oppose Mendelson's amendment. "What we're arguing over is a label," Cheh says. "If there's all this expense [the revenue Metro says it loses], why not have" more-secure fare gates/bus boarding to stop it?
