Answers to Non unique Policing

Protests will further police abolition now – slow change happening now.

Mariame Kaba ‘20. Organizer, June 12, “Yes, We Mean Literally Abolish the Police,” THE NEW YORK TIMES, https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/12/opinion/sunday/floyd-abolish-defund-police.html
People like me who want to abolish prisons and police, however, have a vision of a different society, built on cooperation instead of individualism, on mutual aid instead of self-preservation. What would the country look like if it had billions of extra dollars to spend on housing, food and education for all? This change in society wouldn’t happen immediately, but the protests show that many people are ready to embrace a different vision of safety and justice.

Current grassroots movements are shift away from policing reform toward community programs.

McHarris 12/02/2019 (“COMMUNITY POLICING IS NOT THE ANSWER.” Philip V. McHarris is a writer, activist, and PhD candidate in Sociology and African American Studies at Yale University.) https://theappeal.org/community-policing-is-not-the-answer/
Grassroots organizations across the country are fighting to divest from policing and reinvest in community programs. Take, for example, No Cop Academy in Chicago, the Agenda to Build Black Futures by BYP100—an activist organization whose New York City chapter I helped found—and invest-divest campaigns such as Liberate MKE in Milwaukee. In North Carolina, organizers with the Durham Beyond Policing coalition successfully organized to divert funds for additional police personnel toward community-based safety and wellness initiatives.

Answer to Non unique Abolition

Abolition Democracy has been growing to challenge oppressive social structures like the police.

V. Noah Gimbel and Craig Muhammad 2020 (“Are Police Obsolete? Breaking Cycles of Violence Through Abolition Democracy.” V. Noah Gimbel is a lawyer and earned his JD from Georgetown University. Craig Muhammad is an abolition activist who spent thirty-six years in prison and then earned a B.S. degree from Coppin State University.) http://cardozolawreview.com/are-police-obsolete-police-abolition/
On February 5, 2018, Baltimore activists organized a successful “cease-fire weekend,” during which no one was killed—and the cops were not to thank. Indeed, as community anti-violence organizers worked to cool hot feuds in order to prove that endless violence was not their destiny, the Baltimore Police Department was sinking ever-deeper into perhaps the most shocking police corruption scandal of the twenty-first century. The stark contrast between ordinary city residents risking their safety to fight against violence in their community and a corrupt police force committing and propagating acts of violence in the microcosmic streets of Baltimore raises what may appear at first blush an absurdly radical question: are police obsolete? When Angela Y. Davis asked the same of prisons in her germinal 2003 prison-abolitionist manifesto, Are Prisons Obsolete?, the “prison-industrial complex” was only beginning to enter the lexicon of scholars and activists taking on what was then the fairly recent phenomenon of mass incarceration. Since then, the very foundations of the U.S. criminal legal system have been shaken by a mass awakening to its racist origins and ends. Today, a new abolitionism is on the rise in the tradition of what W. E. B. DuBois called “abolition democracy”—the project of building up radical community-powered institutions to supplant oppressive social structures inherited from the legacy of chattel slavery.
