Marni and #BlackLivesMatter Protesters Call on #MayorDeBlasio to #DefundTheNYPD. Refusing the doctrine of Incrementalism, I said to NBC New York: “The people want real change and they are not going to take ‘No’ for an answer.”

NBC NY Video: City Hall Protesters Call on Mayor DeBlasio to Defund The NYPD, NBC New York.

At the protest, NBC New York interviewed me and I said, “The people want real change and they are not going to take ‘No’ for an answer.” But even more so — I am so proud of this young generation refusing the doctrine of incrementalism. They want substantive change and real reform that transforms the NYPD into a public safety model — much like the Camden New Jersey police department that has substantially decreased excessive force complaints against police officers. The City of Minneapolis is also looking into this model of public safety, where social workers, substance abuse and mental health professionals are also employed to work with officers to diffuse situations, instead of escalation. This is the wave of the future. Below are photos of mothers of victims of police brutality that spoke out at the rally at City Hall, demanding justice and reform.
