290. Albuquerque forms new public safety department as alternative to police; 6/15/20
“As calls to defund law enforcement
reach a fever pitch nationwide, New Mexico’s largest city is answering
concerns about its police department by forming an alternative.
Mayor Tim Keller (D) announced on Monday the formation of a new public
safety department designed to relieve stress on the city’s police.
Instead of the police or fire departments responding to 911 calls
related to inebriation, homelessness, addiction and mental health, the
new division will deploy unarmed personnel made up of social workers,
housing and homelessness specialists, and violence prevention
I live in Indianapolis and last night three separate people suffered death at the hands of police officers. My husband and I keep arguing on whether or not it was warranted or not. He thinks I should be quiet on it because it’s not my battle / our battle as we are both white. However, as someone who lives in this city—it’s ridiculous for me to stay silent on it. These are the men and women who are supposed to be protecting the people, not hunting us down in the streets.
Posting these here kasi kinikilig ako 🥺🥺🥺 May kausap kasi ako sa Reddit tapos nung nag-usap kami tungkol sa local films, sabi niya hindi niya raw bet kasi “puro pakilig, walang story, walang context” daw. Hehe so I gave him a list of films to watch, yung available din online.
One week after, naka 6 films na siya at natuwa naman siya sa recommendations ko :( Plan niyang manood pa raw ng marami HUUUHU I’m soft 😭 Ang babaw q pero huhuhu I just love it when people end up liking the things that I love okiii huhuhu + when they give me reviews aaaaahhhh yes yes kahit di mo super bet I’d like to hear from you!!!!
