@IronMan I look forward to electing a president who has the capacity to understand how data can help us and, while he cares deeply for the people of his country, will make decisions based on the evidence he is shown by the competent people around him rather than how things make him feel.

Is this perfect? No.

Should it have taken this long? No.

Do I support it? Yes.

Will I work to elect more people who will pass police reform? Until the end.

It's a start but more needs to be done. We will stay in the streets until it is.

That 38% may not change, but that leaves 62% of us who can get him out. He's losing Independents voters and he's unlikely to get them back.

Register to vote, check your registration, remind your friends and family to do so, and volunteer or donate and help get organized.

This administration needs to end. #MondayMotivation

CNN Poll: 38% approve of the way Trump is handling the presidency, while 57% disapprove. That's his worst approval rating since January 2019:

Police reforms can't wait.

You can tell your own mayor that you want them to happen right now.

Easy script: I’m calling to urge the mayor to pledge to and enact the #8CantWait Use of Force policies. I know our area would benefit from these policies.

The #8CantWait policies are simple, common-sense, and would make our community safer.

Help now: 8cantwait.org
Everybody's got to stand up.

@IronMan There's an article in the WaPo today that explains a lot of what you say. Residents don't want a complete defunding and Trumpers have latched onto those words. There are a lot of people who like all or nothing thinking, no police or militarized police.

A good person to listen to is Alicia Garza, one of the founders of Black Lives Matter. (Not DHS director Chad Wolf, who thinks there is no systemic racism. I'm not going to quote him. People can read the article.) washingtonpost.com/nation/2020

@IronMan

Root out the evil and make infractions public.

They need to stop covering for each other and some of them need to get out in front of this, themselves.

Sometimes, it's not "a few bad apples." Sometimes, it's a diseased tree. That doesn't mean no law enforcement. It may mean abolishing unfixable departments and restructuring what obviously isn't acceptable.

How about #ReformThePolice and reduce what falls under their acceptable abilities?

#DemilitarizeThePolice and funds will be freed up. Reallocate that $ (defund isn't really the accurate word to use, that's what Trumpers are running with to undermine the reform effort now) to communities.

I have attended services at St. John's Episcopal Church DC with Right Partner. Sitting in front of the Lincoln pew, #89. We have stood in Lafayette Park many times, even toured The White House. I will remember the events of last night for the rest of my life. I certainly will when voting against every Colorado GOP candidate on the ballot 11/03/2020.
