The Case for Police Abolition
"At. The time of this recording one thousand seventeen people in the US have been shot and killed by police this past year, and as the numbers continue to grow. It's got meany questioning why we're even need cops in the first place, but the question of polishing the police also makes a lot of people nervous so today we're going straight to the source in talking to an actual abolitionist. Bill Fina Y'all on. It's an important conversation that you don't want to miss. This is the nod. We've heard it all before. Give Cops Body Cams hold them accountable, cautious need diversity and bias training. We need community policing black police. We need Brown police, but as the years roll by an efforts at reform are showing no signs of stopping the brutal violence against black people in this country, a different call gaining traction is the call to abolish the prison industrial complex, which is made up of prisons, policing and surveillance all forms contrary to what a lot of. Of people believe this isn't a new school. Of Thought, it's been around since the eighties, and it's been embraced by people all over the world. Much of what we know about it. Today has been studied practice and built upon three black women. We have to mention Angela Davis Ruth Wilson, Gilmore and Mariam Kaba Today. We're joined by bill. Fina Y'all want a Baltimore based restorative justice practitioner. Who writes about abolition and how to practice it in our community? It'll pheno. Thank, you so much for being here today. It's awesome. Have you thank you? Thank you for having me so abolition. Is Abolition essentially what we talk about admission we're saying is that a world cannot just without the physical presence of police in prisons, but a world where we all have, our needs met in a way that we do not have to commit the crimes that laid us in prison, and with policing right, and so abolition forces us to complete your frame how we think about the concept of prisons and lease, and to be honest about the history of it prisons. Prisons were created as an alternative to slavery. It says so and the thirteen th amendment, and so when we look if that that violence and genocide history of policing prisons, abolition says it's not possible for us to have world rabies dynamics exist so I'm sure we've all seen a lot of the back and forth in the media, and even just an online conversations about what's reformist versus what is abolitionist. What sorts of things are absolutely out of the question or Believed that we can have rover prisons and policing exist. We just have to make it better. And abolitionist believed that is not possible behalf to completely get rid of it and create new systems and structures. How did you come to fruition? Personally had become part of your life identified. The woman is came to woman is during college was definitely my sophomore. Year of college and I thought begins to stand what it means to exist as A. A black woman in this world I understood this system is structured. That are against US I think a lot of people don't understand that the reform to slavery with prisons. The reform to slave catchers was police, and so when you have stopped with that truth as a woman as as a former refugee as an immigrant to this country will hold, I, experience, it was not possible for me to say I love blackness and not become an abolitionist. Something else. That's near and dear to your heart, and also the work that you do is the story of Keith Davis Junior talked to us a little bit about Keith and his story so keep Davis Junior. Is a twenty eight year old black man for Baltimore, who was shot at? Times by the Baltimore Police Department in June of Twenty fifteen. He's being accused and they're saying that it gun was founded in Keith was connected to a murder. In March he was sentenced to fifty years, and after five years in five rows, Amish. It's been an ongoing case that five years WWLTV's dedicated to. Always bring her into the space. Kelly Davis has four beautiful children and Khloe Amari and Jaden and his case is so connected to what was happening in Baltimore after Twenty fifteen after the murder of Freddie Gray talk to me a bit about how keeps life and story relates specifically to your Abolition Work Keith case is connected to abolition one, if forces us to see kids humanity beyond what he did as a child chief, interaction with the criminal justice system started very early, and what we know is that it was a result of all of the conditions that came with Keith birth his stories parents. Parents his poverty, and so forth, and so as a result of that chief found himself funneled into a system. That once you've been in there. It's easier to keep coming back. If Selah commits a crime, we have to ask ourselves if the necessities of somebody is not being met, and instead were thrown them in a cage cage is actually more violent and transformed into a even more violent person with Keith case what we've seen has been a blatant disregard for any kind of laws, any kind of good faith and what we saw for the past five years is lies and lies and lies and confirms. That meet cannot possibly rehabilitate a system that has no

"From NPR and WBZ. You are tiny Moseley I'm Jeremy Hobson. It's here now. The city of Tulsa Oklahoma is bracing for president trump's first campaign rally in months tomorrow. Coronavirus cases are on the rise in Tulsa, which is also the site of terrible massacre of black people ninety nine years ago this month. The Oklahoma Supreme Court is weighing whether to stop the rally from happening NBC. News, senior politics, editor Beth. Fouhy joins US now. Hi, Beth! Hey Jeremy. And let's start with this rally. The reasons we just talked about, but the trump campaign has been pushing ahead. This is going to be an indoor rally with thousands of people. What is the benefit for president trump of pushing ahead with this despite all the concerns? Yeah, we'll president. Trump really needed morale boost at this point. He's been out of his favorite venues. which are these big every rallies rallies you know for quite some time ever since the coronavirus took hold in this country, and they really give him a lot of energy, they give him a lot of verve to heap, going to remind himself that he has a very large throng of fans that will show up for him anywhere in anywhere in. Cheer him on. We've seen lots of polling out in the last. Last couple of weeks showing president trump falling behind Joe Biden, fairly significantly in in a lot of battleground states in addition to nationally. We know from our reporting that president trump is is quite concerned about the polling that indicates that he's got problems winning a second term, so going out and getting in front of these fans is something. He wants to do just to get that to get that energy back, but as you point out Jeremy, it's a very fraught situation we've. We've seen record numbers of people. Coming up with infections both in Oklahoma, and in the city of Tulsa where he's going to be We've seen a lot of folks. We're going to show up on the streets probably to protest in addition to all those folks who want to go to the rally that could be a potentially combustible situation and president trump. This morning tweeted threatening protesters, saying that that basically he would not put up with. Anything that smacks of of of bad behavior, so we could be in for for quite a weekend. On the Democratic side as we look toward the election about four and a half months from now Minnesota senator. Amy Klobuchar has withdrawn her name from consideration to be vice, president, Joe Biden's running mate and says it's time for a black woman or women of color to be named to the ticket. How much pressure does that add on Biden to now pick a woman of color? Well, we know that president excuse me Vice President Biden has been getting a lot of input from Democrats that especially now given the people that we've seen around issues of race that he really ought to pick a woman of color, and he certainly does have women of color on his list. We know that Senator Comma Heart Harris's on his list. We Know Congressman Val demings from Florida is on his list and likely Atlanta Mayor Kisha bottoms, but keep in mind. Mind Jeremy There are other women on his list who are not black or African American, and we know from our reporting that President Vice President Biden. Really feel strongly that he whomever he chooses has to be somebody who could take over at a moment's notice as vice president, and is somebody that he could work with as president in the Oval Office, and that ultimately those will probably be the factors that help decide the outcome of this of this of this. COMPETITION TO BE HIS NUMBER TWO At somebody who was vice president for eight years. He knows exactly what the job entails, so he? He's looking at a lot of factors there. Meanwhile, we had these Supreme Court decisions this week. The president tweeted this morning that he will soon submit enhanced papers on Daca after the Supreme Court found that he improperly tried to end the DACA program that shields young immigrants known as dreamers from deportation. How hard is he? GonNa push on Daca this point leading up to the election. It's so unclear. I mean he did send out that tweet, but of course president trump doesn't always follow through on things that he says he's going to do in his tweets. It's a difficult situation. I mean even the most. Concerned folks about immigration and illegal immigration. We've seen in polling typically say that they believe dreamers, these kids who were brought to the country as children by their parents and have lived here. Basically, their whole lives are people who should be able to stay so president trump doesn't have that big of a base to work off of in terms of trying to make this a helpful political issue for him. There's just no evidence that anybody outside of the sort of most hardcore immigration rights. Opponents are for preventing these dreamers from staying in the country, so it's it's more than likely that president trump will will step back from this issue. Let me finally. Ask you and we just have about Forty seconds left here about the John Bolton book now the justice. Department is trying to block it from publication, although most of its revelations are already out, wh, how is this all playing out in Washington? Yeah I. Mean basically the the argument to keep it from being published pretty much out the doors. As you mentioned Jeremy, I mean the book is already been shipped some two hundred thousand copies, according to the publisher Simon and Schuster and we know we've seen major news organizations all over the country basically report all the major findings, so at this point, it seems more symbolic to to prevent the release of this book and probably unsuccessful, but obviously it's the what the Justice Department is doing is playing to an audience of one president trump. WHO's quite upset about this book? Will and and many people have said if John. Bolton had so much to say. Why didn't he say it? When the House Democrats asked him to testify in the impeachment inquiry, but I'm sure he'll be asked that in his interviews Beth. Fouhy, senior politics, editor NBC, News and Msnbc Thank you. Thank you? The State of California is reconsidering its ban on affirmative action policies. The state assembly voted this week to send the question of affirmative action back to voters assembly person Shirley Weber introduced the legislation after twenty five years of quantitative and qualitative data.

"Sir. This is democracy. Now democracy now or the warrant piece report. I'm Amy Goodman with one gun solace with part two of today's edition of fifty years ago that right fifty years ago this week, the nineteen sixty eight democratic national convention in Chicago became a national spectacle as a major political event turned into chaos that culminated with a police riot, much of it unfolding on live national television. While Hubert Humphrey was nominated as the democratic candidate in nineteen sixty eight inside despite the fact he didn't run in any primaries outside was where the news was where police were clubbing teargassing thousands of protesters. For more. We continue our interviews with Bobby Seale founding chairman, Black Panther party was in the protests at the beginning in Chicago. Bill Ayers was arrested on August twenty seven fifty years ago and Bernardine Dohrn both Bernardine and Bill longtime activists for peace and racial Justice, former SDS that students for a democratic society and whether underground members. I mean, he Goodman with Juan Gonzalez one? Yes. Yes. With Bobby Seale again to follow up a Bobby on the conversation. We were having that the end of our previous segment when you were talking about how once Richard Nixon was elected president, he ordered. His aides to begin immediate eradication of the Black Panther party. One of the interesting things that most people are not aware of is that years later report came out in the New York Times that the f. b. i. had conducted a CPR secret poll among black Americans and found that more than twenty five percent of African Americans were supporters of the Black Panther party felt that the Black Panther party was fighting. Their interest is significant portion of the America of the African American population of this country was supportive of of your revolutionary organization. And yet as you were saying Nixon immediately ordered that you be crushed, could you talk about what happened in that first few years of the Nixon administration to the panther party. Exactly the year of nineteen sixty nine is the year. Now, remember I said he had a meeting with j. Edgar Hoover and Jade ago who were in the December the first week of December stated nationally on television that we were threat to the internal, the blackout, the party is a threat to the internal security of America. Come come. What was February seventeenth seventeenth. John a buddy Carter and John Huggins will murdered at UCLA. They were the leaders of the black path to party and loss Angeles California now. But she Carter really had gotten out of his gang group. 'cause he, he ran a three thousand member gang and he created a political organization call wretched of the earth delay to become and he later became rub. They headed up to southern California chapter the black part in the Los Angeles community. Eric, the what I'm trying to say here is that. That was the first attack on the part of the power structure using the us organization, etcetera. In a conflict situation to kill and murder. The leaders of the Los Angeles chapter, the blackout, the party do that process in the next three or four months. They attack more than twenty two offices I'm talking about in Indiana. I'm talking about the, they blew up the office and demands. I will literally got the crew Clinton of blew up that blow up that building. And I'm telling you. In San Diego brother. Bell was opening up to San Diego office at eight AM in the morning, and the police and FBI came jumped out of cars and came into place and shot him dead killing murdering. So I'm just says that period of tacking by the end of that year with the murder of Fred Hampton and then the shootout in Los Angeles, four days later after that cetera I have in my organization, I had twenty eight dead blackout to party members sixty nine wounded and defending ourselves. We defended ourselves and many of these attacks. By the end of that year, fourteen police were kill because we shot back when they came in shooting in us. We did not play. We shot back

Really in the book to she always makes books. I mean, how could she not go there? Go on her own little book. One of our favorite recipes of yours. I think you posted last year the coconut milk, brace collard greens. Yet out, get out, we would love to show that recipe with our audience that would be. You know, I, I've always kind of think it's funny that we've managed to be friendly on Twitter because I get a lot of feedback from people either Madame e that don't post vegan vegetarian post any. They're just kind of like constantly asking him. I go into my going to in, it's like, you know, I feel like we have some common ground with always wanting real food and encouraging people to cook at home. And sometimes it's enough, you know, like you don't have to sway people to change their mind just not for them, but there's always some middle ground that you can find total. And we have also been bullied by our own our own audience being like you guys need to more this. You need do more that like the audience doesn't know what they want. I think your post, they're always you really talk about the technique and like how you got to successful recipe. And so regardless of whether I'm gonna use meet in this recipe or something else, like I learned something from reading your journey in the recipe and how you got to where you are, and it translates across whatever ingredient I might replace it with. That's cool. Yeah, no means more to me like, I'm like, I appreciate the people that actually like read all the way through and just appreciate the work for what it is because at this day and age, it's like you can. You can Google any recipe want. And if somebody actually takes the time to come and find your content and read it religiously, those are the people that you gotta hold onto. Yeah. Well, and like you're saying, like, we have this huge trove of recipes on the internet, but I think the difference. And what sets you and your platform apart is that you know the human cooked this and that you recipe tested the shit into the fucking ground. And it's gonna work. I don't like putting Bullshits it out. Like I refuse if it means I only post once a month and that's what I do because I just I will not ever be even capable if I wanted to just the time in the work involved in like putting out something new every single day that has that kind of dabbled really enjoy it. I don't know. I don't know how the fuck they do that where they post every day. I don't think that either. I think they have a team of people that aren't really, but I think it's helping. I don't want to ask people to go to their grocery store everyday good money, pay thirty dollars for all huge cart, full of groceries. And then the recipe fails because I didn't test it and you do start to feel responsible, especially when you have a solid following these people kind of rely on you. Like for me, I call them my projects, the stuff that I really got into learning how to make the biscuits, collard, greens. MAC and cheese, especially like those are.

I can't hustle hate catering fulltime an do my online brands like I'm has to give.

Yeah, it's just it's just everything is just it's not funny more like the way that it used to be where I think around the time that we all started, it was just felt more reckless. Yeah, in people just said, whatever they wanted to add, it was just like this carefree atmosphere in now. You know, the culture's changed. I think in some ways that's a good thing, but it other ways they can feel kind of settling creatively yet everyone. It's hard to know where it walk that line, everyone so aware of their like quote, unquote brand now online, where that that was the case in two thousand twelve like you're just doing your fucking thing. And I think it's totally. It's diluted the experience in a way that seems a lot less. You know what I think is hilarious though, is people who have like no followings, no brands like and I'm not gonna say their name, but we have someone that we both know not Angela to note. But they'll post up on like Instagram or Twitter when they get a new pair of shoes or something like thanks at Dita's like the fake ad. So pathetic. Fucking came on. It'll ship. Those are fun for me like there's a lot of little things that just keep you going. It's like the stuff that I can't even reach we anymore. You know. I have to stay on brand now. But yeah, those little moments kind of make it. There will sometimes the I wanted to talk to you about something that you've always been very vocal about it. We have also experienced is like the constant like, oh, we'll we'll get you this job for exposure. We're going to. These brands and these other like media outlets misusing or taking bloggers social ticking counter without asking? Yeah, and without crediting. And without offering any compensation. Why was my first big battle? Yeah, I think as a blogger was dealing with people taking my work and it wasn't just I think there is a little bit misconception about why I was so mad from some of the people that aren't really in this space. Like a career, but it was it was companies that were taken at work, they were posting on their feet. So that's advertising at that point. You know, when you're using picture to promote, you know your business or drive traffic to your site. It's not just like sharing it in the spirit of, oh, look at this nice recipe..

"It. Yeah, it doesn't feel like that. And I think people probably feel the same way about you like you have such a community around you online in terms of your recipes. I feel like it's so interactive. I love when you re post the Sunday to Sunday. To see how people are translating your recipes into their familial relationships there with their families, their new boyfriends, all of these things and it just feel. I mean, it does feel like friends getting together around the table and having a conversation. And so I'm sure that they would be like, no, she's the lady. I go to ask about my biscuits, like, how does she? How could she possibly feel like she doesn't know what she's talking about? I think a lot of people don't understand. The background is like you're still trying to figure out how to make it into a business. Yeah, that's the heart wearing long. I wish I could just cook all day and put recipes on my blog, and that was enough. But I think in the beginning I thought that it was because you kind of hear those Sperry tales really good laws, and then they get book deals in the mirror, and it's like all those things just kind of happened, but you never really understood what they were doing in the background to make it happen. Now, I'm there and I'm like, trying to figure out how can I turn this thing that I really love doing and I love my community and it's my passion, but how can how can I make this profitable now and not change really like the essence of why I'm here. Yeah, that's the thing that everybody's, you know, I'm trying to figure out and kind of balancing the boring work of running our own business, where at creative aspect in being able to have both of those parts of your brain working kills your love for the artistic. Also in the preface, you were talking about how you were kind of depleted after doing this big year. You know, you started doing all these. Catering projects and doing all this stuff and it's hard. I totally agree that it's hard to be creative in the kitchen. Kind of south your energy. And that's the part that for me getting used to because my my career before this was an accounting, which is. You know, it was just sitting in a computer and it was it was stressful in a way of like office politics and trying to crush numbers all day, and but it was a different kind of stress. So when with creative work, it's like, you're so tied to how you're feeling emotionally all of that goes into your work. And if something is kind of balance, it's like, you just can't. You can't even put. Yeah. There's not a time to just it's not like where I could just take the -cation and I still get a check. It's like every day you're trying to push through that. It's a never ending hustle on. It's always like kind of at least for us. It's always in the back of our minds. You don't ever truly relax. Right, right. I wanted to talk to you. I did a lot of that this year just out of, I think just getting to this breaking point where if by don't take time off, I'm going to collapse and I'm gonna wanna quit in a hat to just step away.

Yeah, let's let's talk about that fucking inception of like. Win. Did you? You're like, I'm gonna. I'm gonna take my cooking to the internet and I'm gonna be a blogger. Like what was that like for you? You know, it just kind of happened by accident. It was just fun in the beginning. I'm like, you should just read a blog because I was posting on my my dinner pictures. I had a boyfriend at the time and I was upset about cooking for him. That was sick, but. Cheers kind of led me to wanting to share a little bit more and it opened up on the internet just started his Twitter and getting comfortable with sharing more my my home life. And somebody was like, well, why don't you just put the recipes on a log and then they're being one place. So I did it. I think a lot of people were. It was just when everything was starting to blow up. Everybody had a food account of Seddon. So I feel like I came up around that time when it was just that was the movement, but I had no idea what it would turn into when I started the little blog. Yeah, I think those are the best stories because they people tend to win. They found some success or notoriety or what have you. They look back and they try to draw a straight line and it's like, that's not how it was lives. Yeah, just sort of posting stuff on Facebook, like we threw up a random tumbler and just reacts or or doesn't. Love you, or they won't get lucky and you're putting out good content and somebody feels something than than hopefully propels you forward. But that's why it's hard to people ask. Well, I'm trying to start a blog or I'm trying to become this person in the culinary world. I don't have the blueprint to give somebody just like this clear path from starting to block to where now I still feel like I don't know what I'm doing. None of us do. Won't in your new e book. Like I said, at the top of the show kitchen, Easter diaries, volume one. You talk about how cooking turned out to be the easiest part of the journey for you. That quote, imposter syndrome, Israel and their days at no amount of accolades can convince me that I know what the hell I'm doing, and I completely Rosen Needed. needed. It's weird for us to coca recipe writer, Joe put on the internet and then people sort of cook it in their homes. And I don't know that have the authority to be doing. Right. I, I surprised to hear that from you guys because you know your success just kind of blew up. And I remember when it was just a little pictures. Funny. With me. I think that maybe the one key people always know what to expect from you begin it. Thank you very much, but.

"Of dollars in campaign finance from the meat and dairy lobbyist, which is a one hundred and eighty six billion dollar a year business. we should not talk about the meat and dairy industry too much every time that we sometimes talk about them. You get very shy. I mean, they're, they're not to be fucked with. They do not. They went after Oprah, am I. For the crown. I mean, these are the slaughter animals for a living. So. Her not fucking around. Speaking of death threats. Transition. If I've ever heard one. Apparently there's this handful of lunatic, vegans and France going around sending death threats to butchers and vandalizing the shops. Well, I can say that as people who have received our share of death threats from fucking out of their mind. Vegans. Yeah, I can tell you that these people are the absolute worst. Yeah, they are the fucking worse. I think that clearly they're unemployed, obviously, based on the thoroughness of their madness and their lack of discernible skills. Now these are these are people that hand you a flyer that the font is like six point. Oh. Two sided decided. It's like, well, you got a lot of shit to say, man, this is the the ramblings. It just like A Beautiful Mind in pamphlet form like the wall, you know their their own. Well, they are. Yes. So apparently neighborhood butcher is getting their shops covered in graffiti fake blood and their windows broken by all these fucking vegans who aren't down with the whole meet thing. Most extreme case was a guy who was given a seven months, spend a sentence for praising the killing of a butcher on online of can kill the butcher. No. So the vegan guy was like touting what it was a good thing and basically inciting violence online. Oh, he was commenting on this butcher who was killed. So apparently alone gunman took hostages and a grocery store in southern France in March. And in that incident, the gunman killed a police officer and the stores butcher, he was just a madman. Yes, just amendment. But this offer mentioned vegan, dude, started going online praising this saying it didn't matter that the butcher was killed because he was a murderer to good dammit, Jude knuckle, super chill. I, she does such not a party do not a party. So I think big piece of this whole not eating animals thing is compassion. Oh, do that one. One hundred percent vegans hanger on look how fucking compassionate we asked the moral high ground and compassion should be for people who because people are animals to. Okay. So it's a big reason we work with so many organizations here in Los Angeles. The tackle homelessness like Elian cloud, nine, and everyone in a partnership with the United way, instead of focusing on vegan non profits. If you're asking people to show compassion towards animals, they themselves, should I be receiving compassion because you can't pay it forward if you're not treated like a person. I don't think that those fuck heads and France got the minimum. They didn't get the memo. We're publishing. Okay, so we can speak with authority to the community there. Fucking knock it off. Come on Jesus Christ. There's other approaches also make friends, not enemies motherfuckers stood since you got so much God damn time on your hands. Why not open a vegan butcher shop or just applaud amount of peasants, farmers, market cart. What are we doing? Take their business tick. Their money. That's where you're going to hit a most so easy to be against stuff. It's way harder to be forced off. So fucking do your part. I don't want to paint the community with broad stroke that fanaticism is everywhere, but these people do it fucking. Engine man like everywhere. I mean, you got yoga fanatics, but the squeaky wheel gets the fucking Greece and attention. And I do. I do feel like every time vegans are in the headlines.

I here in the homeland that the administration should be working on before they before. Or milk. What are some other things?

What about climate change? What about climate change? Certainly focused on up. It's accelerating and shit's gonna, get wrecked, farms, water, everything everything's destroyed. It's gonna cost us all the money. There was the Trump administration. They don't care. There was an article that was saying that climate change is happening so much faster than they projected what a surprise. Thanks so much. That was another thing that the Michigan should focus on. That's not not milk healthcare. Well, Well, that's why. that's why book? Yeah, my nearly twenty percent of Americans around forty million people do not have access to healthcare and some of the most affected are younger people between eighteen and twenty four years old with thirty percent of them being unable to afford or having zero access to healthcare at all these numbers, you know, I'm going to start my sources somebody. That's fair. Somebody question us on Twitter and I was like, yeah, we should site that's from the CDC report into government from the goddamn. So those numbers are probably higher so they know the problem and yet they don't care nut milk. Yeah. And these are just a few like grab bag shit that we picked, but this is low hanging fruit. And most importantly, the FDA should really be focused on the opioid epidemic because. In our country right now, because what one hundred fifteen Americans every single day which means four people will have died during the duration of this podcast. Fuck Jesus Christ. I really do not think that you'll need to focus on defining what milk is right now. I mean, unless you're receiving tens of millions.
