“Defund the Police”

Tue, Jun 16, 2020

The chants of “ I cant breathe” are being replaced by shrieks of defund the police”, in the wake of the George Floyd death in Minneapolis. Is it time to scale back on the firepower?

Floyds death was the catalyst for anti-racism demonstrations and protests around the world. The role of police is very much in their minds. For some, its an adversarial relationship. LA and New York, some of America’s largest cities, are scaling back on police funding and putting those funds toward health and at risk youth programs. In the city of Toronto, two councillors have brought a motion forward to cut the Toronto Police budget by 10 percent, although the Premier is not in support.
