Amidst calls for an abolishment of the police or cries to “Defund the Police,” communities and citizens are pushing back against that narrative. Political movements in the wake of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor are twisting the narrative that an abolishment of the police is now just police reform. Is that what is really happening or are the political, social, and urban leaders creating their own narrative at the expense of their constituents? Do communities really want less of a police presence? What do the statistics and numbers say?
