Thank you as this is a great article with excellent suggestions and a way though the racism and sexism that is such a big part of America. Another example is removing the police from schools as that has been a disaster for so many student and their families.
And too, why is having a military background so valued for police? I would rather have police ride bikes and work locally. Imagine how different things would be if police worked in their own neighborhoods. Making policing a solver of problems instead of creating
problems by angry aggressive people who need weapons to function. : (
