The slogan people fought for in the streets is DEFUND THE POLICE whether you like it or not.
If your first act on hearing that is to flinch, your question should be, “Who taught me to flinch, and why?”
Your hands should hold steady when you are slapped, or who would trust your judgement in a fight?
History’s a slap on the side of the road as people pick and choose monuments to topple to the valley below.
If you say “My goodness!” before the trouble starts, you water down what people die for in their hearts.
If you can’t stand by the slogan DEFUND THE POLICE, don’t stand so, don’t stand so close to me.
