As a constituent, I want to express my deep sorrow and anger regarding excessive police force and the lives it affects. I want to advocate for defunding police forces in California, not entirely, but in increments to reallocate those funds to other public programs that would prevent the need for police in the first place. Examples include schools, healthcare, and drug rehabilitation programs. We need to reimagine the role of a police officer. They take on too many roles to handle, and it isn't fair to our communities or to the officers themselves. I urge you to take measures to take funds from policing and invest them in community programs. Thank you, and I wish you the best of health.
