While it’s been a controversial topic, Jean-Raymond is all about defunding the police, insisting in an interview with the outlet that the police force is a “proper cult.”
We’re getting a lot of historical information thrown at us that the public may have ignored before,” Jean-Raymond notes, adding “And I think our collective consciousness is understanding that police are trained like a cult.
One of the things that we have to look at — and why we have to disband our current police and create completely new community-serving public safety measures — is because these people are not trained to do what they were supposed to do in the first place.
He also talks about the wide-spread effort to abolish the police force…
“It’s a multi-step process, and it requires all hands on deck for it to happen quickly.
We live in a meme society, and the revolution will be memed — I think it’s important for us to have a deep dive into all of these pieces that lead to the bigger solution, which is community policing, community safety, demilitarization of the police, abolishing the police, and all of the things we can agree society needs right now.”
