I apologize if this issue has already been addressed, but I wanted to take a moment to clarify why…

I agree with all of that, particularly the class versus race issue.

It’s funny, as soon as i saw you mention departments being revenue sources it made me think about, and i was going to respond with, the civil asset forfeiture issue, but you beat me to it.

The frustrating thing is, if the race-baiters would stop baiting, maybe we could actually have some real discussions and some unity about how the system is flawed, about predatory government, or police militarization and their frequent failure to emphasize deescalation.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
