VOICES: River City, Episode 147: The thinning blue line

Police abolitionists and the Defund the Police movement have seen a number of wins throughout the nation, with qualified immunity being outlawed in New York CityPortland cops leaving the department in droves, and Austin, TX, defunding their police force in favor of affordable housing.

California saw a few small wins in last year’s legislative session, but most major bills leveled at police accountability never even came to a final vote. Can the Golden State make good on holding increasingly weak police forces accountable for their officers’ violence? 

Thanks for listening, defund the police and, as always:
