First we need an explanation as to what exactly defunding the police means. That will include an entire reimagining what the role of the police is and what specific functions they will and won't perform. We must also create legislation the prohibits corporations and wealthy individuals from making substantial financial gifts to police departments. Finally police officers who deprive innocent, unarmed citizens of their constitutional due process rights must be held accountable for their actions. This will mean that we will no longer accept the "I feared for my life" defense to be used anytime an officer murders someone. It seems reasonable that any citizen should "fear for their lives" when they are approached by the police.
