What is Your Vision of the Future, Police & Citizens?

For those that do not see it my way. Those who think police need to continue on this war against its citizens. That police need to ensure ultimate compliance with the law, for our safety, of course. What does your vision of the future look like? I see it as armed occupiers, armored vehicles, and cameras on every corner, ensuring that the servants obey the masters. Even if you are right and that is the safest path. Is that the vision of the future that we want to work towards? Do we want to spend our money, sacrifice the lives of our loved ones, imprison our fellow human beings in cages, criminalize those in need of mental/medical care, pick up the bodies of youths lost to the inevitable wars of prohibition, and imprison our lives in fears of the others? Or, do we want to band together and strive towards the visions I speak of along with, DeRay McKesson, Bree Newsome, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, and many others. Our future is a different one altogether. It is a world in which human beings return to being one.
