For decades, the solution to Black Americans’ distrust of cops has often been to not call them. Now white people are catching on too.
Some white people are now rethinking whether it’s a good idea to rely on law enforcement, especially if summoning the police could harm someone. And entire cities have considered whether police officers are the best response to certain kinds of offenses.
Probably a good idea to rethink this, especially when cops show up brandishing guns.
