Defunding the Police?


The death of George Floyd brought millions of US citizens to the streets in protest of police brutality.  One term that came from that uprising was “Defund the police.”  However, the call for the defunding of police departments across the country left some people on opposing sides confused and angry.  Why would anyone really want to defund the police?   In this episode, Dr. Phillip Nelson and Dr. Peter Weinstein delve into the phrase and offer some alternative solutions for this mostly political call to action.    

What does it truly mean?  Why is there mistrust towards law enforcement by POC in the first place?  How are POC treated differently by officers? Join us for some of the answers and let’s start the conversation!
