the police only keep white people safe. all other tax payers are traumatized. please stop this madness and fund social workers and people with years of mental health training and expertise. all "crimes" are due to mental health issues that stem from systemic racism and societal violence. why are we funding the perpetuation of this violence? this is not just the US - Canada has equally traumatizing issues, a different history but equally dehumanizing to and exhausting for POC taxpayers. use tax payers money to keep all of our community members safe and able to thrive.
