  1. Maybe its time to do things differently. This podcast brings another perspective about the situation and makes you think. We won't know if defunding works until we try it.

  2. George Floyd's death was a tragedy. It shed the light on police brutality. Something we are seeing more and more. Today, for example it came to light that some Wilmington, N.C. police officers were recorded saying that they hoped and would participate in another Civil War because they wanted to wipe black people off the earth. Yes, I think police should be defunded.

  3. Thank you Harriett Hubbard for this post. While We all know that Racist Monster, Killer Police officers in what I call Apartheid America in its Systems of Racism (SYSTEMIC RACISM)and injustice against Black America the GREAT BUILDERS AND THEIR DECSENDANTS BUILT this country , yet we are the ones who have suffered and continue to suffer the worst atrocities known to Hue-mans and human kind, Defunding the Police is NOT the answer!! It would lead to even more Death, Destruction, Apartheid Behaviors from RACISTS than ever before. WE JES-US, WILL never BE GIVEN JUSTICE IN A COUNTRY BY THOSE whose survival depends on our Death and Destruction. WE MUST DEMAND IT!! MORE POLICE NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR HANEOUS SATANIC VAMPIRE BLOOD THIRSTY MURDEROUS INHUE-MAN CRIMES AGAINST BLACK AMERICANS!! It is ok to march , but what is Thee ultimate Strategy and Goal to destroy these historic crimes?? We NEED TO BE Organizing and Strategizing WITH OUR YOUNG PEOPLE without egos and Partisanship. We Must Unite and Organize with 1 common goal in mind -------REPAIR , REPARATIONS, AND RETURN TO OUR ORIGINAL FREEDOMS AND GREATNESS. THEN BE SURE TO BE GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE. POLICE ARE EXECUTORS AND ENFORCES OF HIGHER BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT, AND A HIGHER ORDER -SEE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION ARTICLE III. WE MUST START AT THE TOP AND WORK OUR WAY DOWN!! NO PARTY AFFILIATIONS, BUT WITH DOGGED DETERMINATION TO PUT A STOP TO THIS TRANSATLANTIC TO THE PLANTATION,SO CALLED CONSTITUTION ( THAT DEEMED BLACK MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN,BOYS AND GIRLS 3/5 HUMAN, CIVIL WAR, SO CALLED RECONSTRUCTION, JIM CROW, SEGREGATION FROM OURSELVES AND OUR PEOPLE- TO INTEGRATION WITH OUR COMMON ENEMIES. WE MUST STAND FOR OUR TRUTH!! WHO WE REALLY ARE AND COMMAND OUR NATUR-AL OWED INHERENT RESPECT!! WE MUST UNITE FOR ONCE AND FOR ALL WITH OUR MINDS, BODIES, SPIRITSD, NU, SOULS...!! POLICE OFFICERS NEED TO BE MADE AND REQUIRED TO LIVE IN THE COMMUNITIES IN WHICH THEY SERVE FOR A PERIOD OF 5 YEARS BEFORE THEY ARE EVEN ALLOWED TO SERVE AND THERE AFTER!! THIS WOULD POSSIBLY CREATE A CULTURAL SENSITIVITY TO THOSE IN THE COMMUNITIES THAT POLICE TAKE AN OATH TO PROTECT AND SERVE!! HOW CAN YOU PROTECT ANDS SERVE WHAT WHO WHERE YOU DON'T KNOW OR GIVE A DAMN ABOUT? THERE MNUST BE OVERSIGHT BY PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITIES THAT THE POLICE " PROTECT AND SERVE" CHOSEN BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE PEOPLE!!

  4. THE POLICE ARE A PART OF THE JUDICIAL BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT (SEE UNITED STATE CONSTITUTION ARTICLE III)!! SO WE MUST DEAL WITH THOSE AT THE TOP IN LOCAL , STATE, AND FEDERAL LEVEL GOVERNMENTS, LEGISLATORS, VIOLATORS- CALL THEM OUT AND DEMAND LEGAL IMMEDIATE ACTION TO A LONG OVER DUE PLAGUE OF MASS MURDER OF BLACKS BY RACIST POLICE OFFICERS COPS THIS PLAGUE IS WORST THAN THE CORONAVIRUS, COVID - 19, AND HAS BEEN AROUND FOR AT LEAST 401 YEARS LONGER WITHOUT EMERGENCY TREATMENT, TESTS, VACCINES -- CALL THEM OUT !! NEW AND FORMER OLD PRESIDENTS (EVEN IF SHE/HE IS/WAS BLACK) CONGRESSMEN AND WOMEN THE LAWMAKERS (AND GOVT. LAW BREAKERS), COURTS, CORRUPT JUDGES, ATTORNEYS,OTHERS... CALL OUT "OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO HAVE BEEN IN OFFICE FOR DECADES AND HAVE STOOD SELFISHLY AND IDOLLY BY AND ALLOWED THESE CRIMES AND TRAVESTIES TO EXIST AND PERSIST AND WHO PARTAKE IN THESE ACTIONS CONSCIOUSLY, SUBCONSCIOUSLY, OR UNCONSCIOUSLY!! WHY IN THE HELLL WOULD THEY BE UNCONSCIOUS? WE MUST ESTABLISH A REAL PARTY ORGANIZED STRUCTURE (MAYBE IT SHOUD BE CALLED THE BLACK PARTY) MADE UP OF TRUE TO THE CAUSE NATIONAL BLACK CITIZENRY A BOARD ( MAKE SURE I AM ON IT!!) TO DEMAND AND BRING ABOUT REAL AMERICAN APARTHEID SYSTEMIC CHANGES THAT INCLUDE ALL OF AMERICA'S RACISTS SYSTEMS. THERE HAS TO BE A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO THE SOLUTION AND RESOLUTION AND LIKE THE BOSTON TEA PARTY'S REVOLUTION TO GAIN ITS 'FREEDOM AND RIGHTS" TO BE -------FROM GREAT BRITAIN- REVOLUTION!! AS MY BIGMAMMA LEMON LEE MCDANIELS USED TO SAY "WE GOT IT TO DO!!" LET US MAKE IT DO WHAT IT DO AND NEVER STOP OR DROP THE BALL ON RACISM AND AMERICA'S APARTHEID AGAIN!!!!!!MS. CARMEN R. AUSTELL

  5. Bonita Cornute is an excellent journalist. I enjoyed watching her on FOX 2 and now I like listening to her on The Open Source. This was an excellent show. Defunding the Police is definitely something to think about.

  6. Yesterday would've been Tamir Rice's 18th birthday. He was killed by a police officer when he was 12 years old. All he was doing was playing in a park with a toy gun. There have been so many killings that we've forgotten. I say yes, police need to be defunded.

  7. Where does Mayor Lyda Krewson get off? She had the nerve to read the names and addresses of local citizens who think that defunding the police is a good idea in a Facebook Live! She put those people's lives in harms way. Starting to think she should resign.
