Alec Karakatsanis: "American policing is an instrument of white supremacy and wealth preservation."

Civil rights lawyer, former public defender, and Civil Rights Corps founder Alec Karakatsanis made the following statement about the protests that are currently sweeping the nation following the death of George Floyd at the hands of police:

“American policing is an instrument of white supremacy and wealth preservation – from its roots in slave patrols to the lynchings by strangulation and gunshot we see by mobile phone video today. George Floyd, Breona Taylor, and countless others should still be with us, but our racist punishment bureaucracy has taken them from us and protects the government employees who murder them every day.

"As a white ally, I stand with each and every Black organizer, protestor, and person who is crying out and sick and tired of this senseless suffering. My organization, Civil Rights Corps, has sent resources to immediately support demonstrators in Minneapolis and other cities.

"Divestment from policing and the punishment bureaucracy must happen if the United States is going to be serious about healing these wounds. No more platitudes about 'justice' – we must shift money from punishment, surveillance, military-style policing, and human caging and invest those resources in the holistic public health and wellbeing of our communities."
