Calls to defund the police are dangerous 15 Aug 2020, 3:23 pm

As the police officer who kneeled on George Floyd's neck faces charges of second degree murder and manslaughter, a national debate on policing continues to take center stage. Protests around the country led to dangerous calls to "defund the police" and "abolish the police," and the New York City Council voted last month to cut $1 billion from the NYPD's nearly $6 billion annual budget for the 2020 fiscal year. The department, which oversees almost 36,000 officers, now suffers a drastic budget-reduction close to 17%. In Minneapolis, the city council proposed a plan to replace the police department and invest in community-based public safety programs, although the move has been blocked from the ballot in a recent vote. And in Seattle, elected officials have started chipping away at their police department -- death by a thousand budget cuts. The once unthinkable now threatens to become a reality across the nation.
