Remember No Justice No Peace? Did we ever get Justice? Police Accountability is nearly non-existent in this city. How many hashtags is it going to take to get some police accountability? With the Atlanta Police Department’s bloated budget and militarized force, we are distancing ourselves from the true root of crime - lack of resources. There would be less incentive to commit a crime if the citizens of Atlanta had the proper tools to thrive economically. I firmly believe providing resources and support will not only address income inequality but also reduce crime and create safer communities. We need long term solutions, not punishment. Living in a safe community without police violence is a human right.
