Numerous citizens and politicians have called for, “defund the police” in the wake of deaths allegedly at the hand of police officers. Defunding the police allows for reallocation or redirection of funding away from the police department to other government agencies funded by the local municipality. Please keep in mind that defunding DOES NOT MEAN ABOLISHING.
Do you agree with defunding the police? Why or Why not? Defend your answer. Is this too radical or is it fair in light of recent events?
Do you think police officers are being highlighted fairly or is this exaggeration from the media? Defend all answers.
