More important than reimagining police services and funding is stopping the school to prison (and death) pipeline at the start (a George Floyd anniversary post)

This is certainly an unfair observation but, within the county that surrounds the city I live in, or along the interstate highways I typically drive, I have never seen a police officer stopping a pickup truck less than 25-years-old driven by a white male.
