  1. Thank you Mayor Jones!
    We need to take care of our homeless. And we need to stop rewarding the police who abuse their power. Rather than protect and serve our black citizens, police protect each other. Therefore, are all police are complicit in criminal behavior. We should absolutely stop paying for their disservice if they can’t get it right.
    Thanks for the bold move.
    They are out of time.
