Defund the Police: Where does Defund the Police fall in the sense of Health, Education, and Opportunity? Well, we can make an argument for all three, and issues like crime certainly connect Education and Opportunity. The simple truth is very few want to actually defund the police. Yes, some do. I don’t. What is important about this issue is we owe it to ourselves to connect and have a conversation that includes officers, the unions, police administration, and the public – all of whom have different goals. Like with so many issues today, we need to collectively review the basics, and then determine how to best achieve a unified set of goals and standards.
