Sound Of The Police: Why We Must Defund The Police If We Want A Safer America.

First show a little respect, change your behavior
Change your attitude, change your plan
There could never really be justice on stolen land
Are you really for peace and equality? — Sound Of The Police by KRS-One

“Yeah, officer from overseer
You need a little clarity?
Check the similarity!
The overseer rode around the plantation
The officer is off patrolling all the nation
The overseer could stop you what you’re doing
The officer will pull you over just when he’s pursuing
The overseer had the right to get ill
And if you fought back, the overseer had the right to kill
The officer has the right to arrest
And if you fight back they put a hole in your chest!” — Sound Of The Police by KRS-One

These are just some of the books I have read in the past three-years to support my position to defund the police. It is never too early to be on the right side of history.
