Minneapolis City Council Pres.: Calling the Police When You Have a Break-in ‘Comes from a Place of Privilege’

‘I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm is done’

EXCERPT:

CAMEROTA: "Do you understand that the word 'dismantle' or police-free also makes some people nervous? For instance, what if in the middle of night my home is broken into who do I call?"
BENDER: "Yes. I mean, I -- I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and -- and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.”
