Gary Black: Defund the police is dumb, we need to RE-FUND the police

A violent crime wave has swept Atlanta and cities across America, a direct result of the regressive "defund the police" movement. Murders rose 30% in 2020, and they're already up another 16% in 2021. Defunding the police is the dumbest idea I've heard since D.C. statehood. We need to RE-FUND police, enforce the rule of law, and recruit the next generation of law enforcement officers and deputies. Raphael Warnock, who has a long history of insulting law enforcement, won't do that. I will.

Raphael Warnock: Prison system discriminates against people of color

The prison population is fed by a system that criminalizes poverty and incarcerates people of color at disproportionate levels. Reverend Warnock also believes that it is morally wrong and economically backward to close the doors of social re-entry on the formerly incarcerated. Reverend Warnock has spoken about the dangers of mandatory minimums, the lack of effective rehabilitative programs, and the thousands of Georgians who are in jail because they can't afford bail.

In order to ensure accountability and build trust, need to invest resources into the training of police officers and into building genuine bonds of community.
