Since the tragic passing of George Floyd on Memorial Day and Breonna Taylor on March 13th, the idea of “defunding the police” has gained traction. Of course, it has already been weaponized in our country’s constant game of polarized nasty checkers, as I like to refer to it.
I see the arguments as follows:
1. The police and their supporters are oppressive racists, perpetuating systemic racism.
2. Defunding=abolishing police. We will have anarchy!
