The president of NorthwesternU sent an email to all students, faculty, + staff, where he threatens police violence + criminalization against students protesting to #DefundThePolice and invest in Black lives. Plz share widely to raise awareness + #FF @copsoutofNU @NorthwesternGW https://t.co/WfNGV3XlKf
They say #DefundThePolice. Then get mad at people for taking it literally. If there is such a miscommunication then your slogan is bad. #ReformThePolice is more accurate. #TheView
We need to rationalize our spending priorities.
We waste so much on “security” services (that ironically make our communities less safe) that vitally needed social services have long been starved.
That’s why the movement calls to #DefundThePolice—to reinvest in our communities. https://t.co/bbbUNhoY7i
This is fucked up. There is no regard for black disabled life in Canada. We've seen this over and over again. Regis, Jermaine, Andrew, D'Andre... All my love goes out to the family of Abdirahman and his loved ones. Inalilahi wainalilahi rojiun. @J4Abdirahman
Today the cop who murdered Abdi gets to walk away free. This interview from the start of the trial is worth revisiting. #DefundthePolice #Justice4Abdi https://t.co/ucJujkkDtq
Millions of dollars that could be invested in housing and feeding homeless people are being used to saturate areas with police to criminalize poverty.
"Ansonsten ist bereits jetzt klar, dass Konservative und Polizeigewerkschaften die erwartbaren Teilergebnisse der #Rassismusstudie so interpretieren werden, dass die #Polizei am Ende das wahre Opfer ist." #DefundThePolice https://t.co/afWJhfkxwe
Simply awful. Once again the state protects the state. "Ottawa police officer Daniel Montsion found not guilty on all charges in death of Abdirahman Abdi" #AbolishThePolice #DefundThePolice https://t.co/dUFe0iBK1F
Another example of when the legal use of violence is justified when it's against Black and brown folks. Police can use as much violence as necessary resulting in the deaths of BIPOC while the justice system fails to hold them accountable. #justiceforabdirahman #defundthepolice https://t.co/8hvxcCIz7F
Justice will never be found in the state that does the killing. #AbolishThePolice #DefundThePolice https://t.co/k4yftLH55C
The court declares that "the standard of the reasonable police officer" is to beat a distressed Black man to death with plated gloves. These institutions are clearly telling us why they must be abolished. #AbolishThePolice #DefundThePolice #AbolishThePIC https://t.co/QGWUeN4lfd
"We need to be working in our communities on building different ways of conflict resolution." - El Jones
Fascist #Miami stormtroopers boosting fascist #Trump. The @MiamiPD
needs to fire Officer Ubeda immediately & we the people need to significantly #DefundThePolice or #abolishthepolice & start over because this is state intimidation & threat.
OR we as citizens can arm ourselves. https://t.co/IRmULPIXQw

"Who is filling these prisons? Women with disabilities, women who use drugs, women with mental illness, Black and Indigenous women." El Jones on prison abolition within the #DefundThePolice movement @stimulus2020
"What I hear directly from women living on the streets is that they are over policed and under protected." @mmeenaakshii
on police showing up too slowly to "help", and too quickly to punish. @stimulus2020
Clearing him of all charges because “that’s just what cops do” is the clearest proof that the change needs to be at a more fundamental level. #DefundThePolice #defundottawapolice #defundopp https://t.co/ZXPIbnr8rg
"Communities need to be empowered who already have the skills to help manage peoples lives and relationships." - Michael Nurse on supporting communities who already have tools in place to police themselves @CAPUDofficial

"Within police reform we may move towards new police technologies and surveillance, corporations are hugely invested in this." El Jones on reform as reinvesting in police surveillance and the illusion of "refunding" the police under #defundthepolice @stimulus2020
"When we talk about reinvesting, going beyond these institutions and investing in the arts, investing in community- bc the community best knows how to take care of each other." Jessica Quijano on divesting from police into community #DefundThePolice @stimulus2020
