On this episode of the Christopher Scott Talk Show Podcast:
The Washington Post is reporting that there's a group of churches in Oakland California, that are no longer going to call the police. They're reporting that, "These churches believe the American police system, criticized for its impact especially on people of color, is such a problem that they should wash their hands of it entirely."
This is a project organized by a national group called Showing Up for Racial Justice. They want to bring this to more churches. The church is saying they are going to train parishioners to handle these situations. They're saying no one will be armed, no weapons. Does that include fists?
Maybe they'll use Snuggies, just wrap up criminals in a nice blanket and give them hugs.
So what happens to the unsuspecting, say children in the congregation who are put in danger? My question is: why should we have police at all? Wouldn’t it be easier if the police are so bad for society why not just get rid of them all together? What would happen then? What do you replace the police with to provide some level of safety?
So hit the play button!
