Ain’t that the truth honeyyyy. We all feel shitty some days just remember it’s all a simulation and everything’s produced and the shit you see online ain’t real and your hair looks great today and you should be super proud of that thing you just wrote and your friends love you and you’re intelligent and I’m writing this to convince myself as well as you that you’re special and really just awesome ????????♀️ sometimes it works
DEFUND. RETRAIN. REALLOCATE.
For those of you who disagree, you probably don’t fully understand what “defund” means. It doesn’t mean disband the entire police force. It means take away some of the responsibilities they have at this current moment and give those responsibilities to properly trained departments, moving the amount of money spent on police force elsewhere, i.e. defund. The cops (at least the way they’ve been trained to this point, which btw only requires 8 hours of conflict management annually, and many states don’t require any de-escalation training) do not need to be the first responders to many of these situations.
If you did understand all of that already, you’re just an asshole.
It breaks my fucking heart thinking about what must have been going in in this kid’s mind during those 15 minutes. He said and did all of the right things, and yet his life was still mercilessly taken. That’s how our system is set up, it must be changed. It must be set right. The police should not have even been involved. DEFUND THE POLICE.
I’m saddened that it’s taken almost a year for this story to be circulating but at the same time #JusticeForElijahMcclain
