She indicated that she intends to transfer the funds allocated to the city police budget to projects related to the population, adding that the city council also intends to study ways to replace the current police force.
“The idea that there is no police force is certainly not a short-term project,” she said.
For her part, council member Alondra Kanoo wrote on Twitter that the council concluded that the city police “are not reformable, and we will end the current system of maintaining security.”
However, the city’s mayor, Jacob Frye, informed before the council vote that he favored “a broad structural reform to re-establish this system of structural racism,” and therefore, the municipal council may need time to fulfill its promise to dismantle the Police.
On Sunday, Democrats called for a profound change in the Police, accused of racism and violent practices against black Americans.
On Monday, a number of Democratic members of Congress will introduce a law aimed at reforming the Police in the United States, considering that its practices against blacks are a racist result that imposes the history of the United States since the period of slavery.
