    A research paper released by United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) suggests government schools could free up funds needed to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic if police are defunded.

    “Police violence is a leading cause of death and trauma for Black people, and is a serious public health and moral issue,” the paper said, citing research from the American Public Health Association titled “Addressing Law Enforcement Violence as a Public Health Issue.”

    “We must shift the astronomical amount of money devoted to policing, to education and other essential needs such as housing and public health,” the union said, advocating that schools meet more social service needs.

    As Fox News reported, the Los Angeles City Council has already slashed the Los Angeles Police Department by $150 million and indicated the funds will be redirected to low-income areas.

    Police violence is a leading cause of death and trauma for black people? Really? I'm sure the black families that have lost friends and relatives due to black on black violence in places like Chicago, Baltimore, NYC and other Democrat run cities would disagree with that assessment.

    They are unable to reason or apply the most basic logic toward problem solving. Yet they are "teachers".
