    I would like to see a ban on chokeholds, get rid of qualified immunity, no use of excessive force, training officers to only use lethal force in the absolute worst case scenario (they should have many options to try before shooting.) Transfer some of the jobs of police to people who are more well equipped to do the work, like social workers for example. I would also like to see some of the funds being transferred from policing back into communities. If you put money into impoverished communities and help them instead of criminalizing poverty, crime rates would go down. We need to focus on helping citizens first, then if all else fails we turn to policing. Our first option shouldn’t be calling the police or sending someone to jail. Our first response should be, “How do we help this person become a good citizen and have a good life?” We need to reform and defund the police and build a better world together that is safer for everyone.
