We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department. And when we’re done, we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response. It’s really past due.

I think the biggest problem is the power of the police unions. Trump has been able to Co-opt them with his racist, “tough cop” language. Take a look at Lt. Bob Kroll, an alleged white supremacist and big MAGA supporter. 👇

As long as Trump and the GOP remain in power in DC, meaningful reform will not happen. That’s one of the reasons why progressive mayors in cities like Chicago abd NY haven’t been able to implement reforms

I’ve already been to Cuba, I had an amazing time connecting with Afro-Cuban artists there... but they have great folks doing great work there, they don’t need me. My work is at home.

If it helps, this is the UK commission report that recommended disbanding the old police force in Northern Ireland, and replacing it with a new, human rights-based one:

My impression is that the new police force in Northern Ireland, the PSNI, made an attempt to hire recruits with social work or youth counseling backgrounds. One could achieve similar results by cutting the force and increasing counseling services.
