San Francisco, CA 94110 United States
Alex Vitale will discuss his new book, The End of Policing, in conversation with CPE's Rachel Herzing. The conversation will be moderated by CR's Kamau Walton.
"...we can't just tinker with the police response, to make it a little bit nicer or to make the police department a little more diverse, because none of that gets at this core problem. We have to really, directly address the politics of the country, that's largely bipartisan, that says that the only way we can solve problems is to criminalize them. Whether it's homelessness, severe mental illness, discipline problems in schools, youth violence, etc., we've got to break this mindset that policing is the only tool that people can have."
--Alex Vitale from an interview with FAIR
