I think if we want to re-imagine policing, we have got to get more nuanced and well thought out about it when we discuss it. We need to have a thorough understanding of the work cops do beyond the criticisms we level at them. And we are probably going to need to find people who are part of the current criminal justice system who are open to reform who can effectively criticize any criticisms made in ignorance. We need the full picture.
like what we want is and end to the racism and an end to the shooting of unarmed civilians innocent of any crime. What we don't want is for a person with a sniper rifle to be able to climb a tower downtown and wantonly murder people without anyone responding. And we want the people responding to be well equipped and trained for that situation to minimize casualties and collateral damage.
