i just can’t get over this, no matter if the nightly news has. what the fuck has to happen before this country sees that the police need to be abolished, much less defunded?

when cops letting children die at school doesn’t even move the needle of public discourse in terms of why we have police anyway—especially after the black lives matter protests of the past couple years—then we are truly in a police state. states are now making it so recording the police is a misdemeanor offense. one would have to be a sadist to try and imagine how much lower the united states can really go at this point.
