There is an increasingly threatening vibe from the police at local protests on Long Island. Protesters are being filmed by multiple officers throughout the march and they are threatening to arrest us for walking in the street. Are they conducting research on individual protestors? It seems like they are trying to intimidate us. Thanks!
Emily Kaufman
41:02
Yes!! We need to end the war on drugs. Criminalizing drug use is not helpful to Anyone
Thomas Lagalante
41:28
Gross
lottie (she/her) long island

question: now that marijuana is being decriminalized nationwide, what is going to happen to nonviolent marijuana offenders (possession and sale)? have there been efforts to get them out of prison. they should be given stock in all weed startups in my opinion but that’s just me fantasizing :)
Barbara Howard
43:18
I agree Alexandra
Thomas Lagalante
44:38
100%
lottie (she/her) long island
44:46
Yes!
Steve
44:58
In NYC you can't walk thru any local park without the odor of marijuana with little kids and families strolling about. Does this not correlate with the broken window theory? How should open drug use be curbed?
Galaxy S8

Prof is AWESOME!
Deana Davoudiasl
45:21
Professor Vitale bringing the facts today!!!!
Jonah
45:36
The reality is, police are big business and their unions own the politicians. How do you effect change when the unions have so much power?
lottie (she/her) long island
45:47
certainly not police! (for curbing drug use in the park)
Thomas Lagalante
46:18
Abolish police unions
Christian Araos
46:22
Have to leave early but I appreciate you coming on, prof Vitale and have enjoyed your interviews with Sam Seder and Dan Denvir. My question: How can we balance efforts to defund the police while making sure local police departments such as those in Nassau and Suffolk County meet consent decrees to diversify their police forces? Best!
Nia A.
46:27
Abolish police
Barbara Howard
46:33
Classic law which penalizes poor and marginalized people is prostitution and doesn't help them ...Johns go free, working women and trans women brutalized
Nia A.
46:36
Put police out of business
lottie (she/her) long island
46:46
good point Jonah - we have to address the unions along with creating new methods of public safety
Rob
46:56
what about those who have been convicted, did time and lost their futures, because of unfair marijuana laws
Erik Chevez - Levittown Coalition for Change
47:29
Jonah that has been my question too. The unions have too much power and the leaders of them have a clear superiority complex. They care more about protecting bad cops than protecting the tax payers that they are meant to serve
Nia A.
47:30
expungement
Steve
47:32
lottie, so who will regulate open drug use?
Jonah
47:35
Do you see a role for the police in society or really, none at all?
Nia A.
47:47
None at all
Nia A.
47:51
We don't need police
Jess Jones
48:12
none
Briana Bonfiglio
48:48
Questions: How do we get politicians to understand these things? How do we, also, get these ideals to be reflected in national media, which so many Americans see and internalize in their beliefs?
lottie (she/her) long island
48:55
who do you think should regulate the open drug use Steve? this is part of abolishing policing is that we, as community members have to be responsible for being involved and envisioning new approaches to these things.
Angelica Sophia
49:28
Instead of regulating drug use, use divested police funds to create opportunities in communities for connection and purposeful action
Harry R. Burger (he/him)
49:38
Change the leaders you elect to those who don't take money from police unions
Angelica Sophia
49:43
In addition to these economic factors Prof Vitale is talking about
Diane Cantave
49:44
How do we get the money out of Politics?
Steve
49:45
DeBlasio wants $ shifted to Parks Dept. If the drug dealers are the root of the problem, should the Feds step in and oversee, such as DEA?
Peter Gollon
49:54
Who will recover your stolen car, if not police?
Angelica Sophia
49:58

Jonah
51:13
just a fantastic presentation.
lottie (she/her) long island
51:16
If this society has a real problem with sex workers, they would go after the johns and not the sex workers. this is just another attempt at regulating women's bodies.
Steve
51:22
Angelica, who do you think should regulate drugs? Should cocaine be legalized?
Ryan Madden
51:24
Let’s first talk about how police steal from communities through civil forfeiture
lottie (she/her) long island
51:25
Yes! out of our schools
Sandra Kupprat
52:01
In India, the sex workers have their own union, credit union, and self-regulating body that enforces mandatory STI testing, minimum age, and other issues that are endemic among sex workers.
Angelica Sophia
52:18
Steve, it seems like you're feeling afraid when you imagine a world without the regulation of illegal drugs. Is that accurate?
Briana Bonfiglio
52:26
Another question: In a world where there is no police, if I am sexually assaulted, for example, what institution would handle my report and my case? I guess this is similar to the above question of what the replacements are. (trust me, I would want someone else to handle it btw-not the police lol, but right now there's no other option)

52:56
Angelica, the legalization of drugs CREATES a system of young abusers.
Will
52:57
Here is a question: America was founded as a settler-colonial state, which relied on a dual system of capitalism and racism to maintain authority, and in communities of color violent authority, is it possible to replace the police when it is baked into our economic system to have violence to maintain profits for the economic elites?
Nathan Stange
53:08
Q: In your opinion, what would be the most effective way for grassroots activists to target the power and influence of police in a generally pro-police, pro-“law and order”, pro-“status quo” suburban geography like Long Island?
Amy Lipin
53:18
If we redirected funds from police and the war machine, the war on the poor, and invested all that in healthcare, jobs that pay a living wage, good funded education, affordable housing, our country would be so much better off…for EVERYONE. Systemic Racism is killing so many, and hurting us all. I am trying to be an antiracist, and will work towards that end.
Rosalie Yelen
53:20
School resource officers on LI are targeting immigrant kids as gang members. And they end up in the hands of ICE.
mike
53:22
@Brianna, this is similar to the issue of doestic violence
Barbara Howard
53:34
rape kits regularly not tested, and often further victimize the victims
Deana Davoudiasl
53:39
literal mic drop…that was amazing
Peter Gollon
53:55
An excellent overview!
Emily Kaufman
54:26
Thank you Prof. Vitale!! great overview...
Angelica Sophia
54:36
Steve, so I think it's impossible to know whether your assertion is true because it hasn't happened yet. Current drug strategy of illegalization is responsible for our current climate of drug abuse.
Irma Solis (She/Her/Ella)

*ordering your book now*. great response to those blue lives matter Long Island folks I’m sure we all know 🙄😤
Sandra Kupprat
55:56
Policing needs to exist, but you are correct they are being asked to solve problems that require different set of tools.
Steve
56:44
Angelica cocaine use correlates to a higher propensity for violence.

The End of Policing ebook available for $3 from publisher - https://www.versobooks.com/books/2426-the-end-of-policing
Thomas Lagalante
57:06
Alcohol prohibition didn't stop people from drinking. I don't see how making drug use a crime prevents creating a "system of young abusers".
lottie (she/her) long island
57:07
Exactly, and we can (over time) reduce spending for those areas where other programs and services would be more effective and redirect it toward addressing issues.
mike
57:19
unemployment correlates with drug use
Luis Valenzuela
57:29
yes look at Portugal!
Angelica Sophia
57:33
Treat drug abuse as a public health problem, a pain problem, and a purpose problem <3
Emily Kaufman
57:38
so we need substance abuse treatment... not criminalization
lottie (she/her) long island
57:45
yes, Angelica!
Steve
57:45
WHO WOULD PAY FOR THE OPIODS?
Emily Kaufman
57:59
criminalizing drug use further entrenches the problem... it does not, and has never, acted as a deterent
Danny H
58:04
I'll pay, Steve.
Angelica Sophia
58:09
Cocaine use also correlates with shitty Hollywood productions, and that community manages to regulate itself to being better, even slower
lottie (she/her) long island
58:11
We would because the cost would be less than policing, jailing, imprisoning, etc.
mike
58:30
economic and social insecurity, lack of a healthcare safety net, all correlate with drug abuse
Angelica Sophia
58:31
Steve, that's what defunding and reinvesting police budgets is for??
Angelica Sophia
58:39
I mean honestly it seems like you're just arguing in bad faith at this point
Nia A.
58:51
who wouldn't pay for opioids?
Amy Lipin
59:10
Doesn’t it cost $65,000/year to lock someone up? We could send them to college for a year.
Emily Kaufman
59:13
let's stay focused on Prof. Vitale... he is dropping Truth, backed by decades of research
lottie (she/her) long island
59:15
believe me, we are ALL paying now
Danny H
59:22
Q for Alex: Can capitalism exist without police?
Amy Lipin
59:25
Thanks everyone. Have to go.
Steve
59:39
Opioids is a national crisis. Legalizing drug use will lead to an expansion of experimentation and addiction. I can't agree with this model w/o evidence.
Rob
59:49
bat least we have needle exchanges now that’s a baby step
Nia A.
59:50
college should be free
Emily Kaufman
59:55
the recording of tonight's event will be posted on FB
Nia A.
59:57
Suit yourself
Will
01:00:15
Legalize drugs :)
Thomas Lagalante
01:00:18
"Opioids is a national crisis. Legalizing drug use will lead to an expansion of experimentation and addiction" [CITATION NEEDED]
Angelica Sophia
01:00:33
Steve this is literally for you
Emily Kaufman
01:00:35
Yes, Steve, look at Portugal!!
Peter Gollon
01:00:41
It would be an interesting challenge for an economist: categorize all tasks now done by police, eliminate some (drugs, etc),reassign others to appropriate professions, and come up with a "minimally sized" police force and size of other needed groups. Then figure out costs - human lives improved, dollars saved.
Maya
01:00:55
Q: Do you recommend a tailored, local approach to defunding the police? Or standardized, research-backed version?
lottie (she/her) long island
01:01:35
Even many police I've spoken to feel we need to make a change in these areas
Nia A.
01:01:36
My school resource officer in 7th grade body slammed my friend's brother. a 14 year old boy. handcuffed him at 7:30 in the morning... that trauma still lives with me. FTP

01:01:37
We need Medicare for All, Universal Housing and the end to Capitalism
Will
01:01:43

Ashna Gibbons
01:01:44
question: can you elaborate on what legalizing sex work means? How does it effect victims/employees vs clients
Jacob's iPhone
01:02:00
I just want our public officials to start making these changes, when the positive outcomes are so obvious! Q: What are the action items we can take locally to push our officials to make these changes?
Deana Davoudiasl
01:02:19
Yes what are the actions we can take!!!
Emily Kaufman
01:02:24
and to fund those... we need to defund the police and REALLOCATE the funding to invest in the community and the health and economic need of community
Will
01:02:26
CAHOOTS does not challenge the systems of police violence and the police get the calls before CAHOOTS
Susan Kaye
01:02:52
No one is talking about the mental health and the stress of unemployment we are dealing with now
Rob
01:02:53
civilization may have not collapsed, but our liberties are being stripped thru and due to mass incarceration and cooperations framing laws
Jamie Kleinberg
01:03:05
Steve, I'm confused as to why you're focusing on cocaine use here. Research shows that white people are far more likely to use cocaine, and they also tend to be far more wealthy than other types of drug users. And these wealthy people are not the ones interacting negatively with police. You are building a straw man argument.
Nia A.
01:03:26
^^^ that part
Orobo Ogbovoh
01:03:44
a lot of problems in this country would be appeased if as a baseline we had free education, free healthcare, affordable housing, and a safety net for poverty.
lottie (she/her) long island
01:03:46
remember that the orgs in Minneapolis have been talking, reading, dialoguing about this for years. so their effort is bold but also very thoughtful and targeted
Nia A.
01:05:22
police "maintaining order" on stolen indigenous land. lol
Emily Kaufman
01:05:42
Nia... exactly. Insanity
Rob
01:05:43
the only safety net for poverty, is the re distributional wealth, we need more Cooperatives not cooperations
Ryan Madden
01:06:11
Yes Rob!
Barbara Howard
01:06:17
So grateful for Rev William Barber taking back what it means to be moral and what Prof Vitale already has called a moral failure
Emily Kaufman
01:06:19
and we need to redistribute money from police institutions into community
lottie (she/her) long island
01:06:22
defunding black and brown communities through incarceration when census counts of inmates are counted where they are imprisoned and not in their communities
mike
01:06:30
Shades of Samuel Huntington! "Crisis of Democracy"
Jamie Kleinberg
01:07:04
Yes, lottie!!!

#FTP #WeKeepUsSafe
Emily Kaufman
01:07:34
great question
Will
01:07:35
The only answer to poverty is to re-appropriate wealth from economic oligarchs
Emily Kaufman
01:07:45
how do we prioritize our demands so that we can be strategic
Barbara Howard
01:08:46
so we also need legislatibe change What laws need to be changed
Nia A.
01:08:56
who is we?
lottie (she/her) long island
01:09:11
That's the Suffolk County budget. Budgets are moral documents
Emily Kaufman
01:09:20
yes... so #1... DIVEST and INVEST. Educate the public and politicians on Budget Justice
Steve
01:09:57
ANGELICA, 130 Americans die every day from Rx and illicit opioid use.
mike
01:10:01
In fact, the entire 40+ year neoliberal juggernaut has brought with it the massive upsurge and militarization of policing to assure its implementation

Angelica Sophia
01:10:53
Steve, he has already addressed how divest/invest movements will positively affect opioid use
lottie (she/her) long island
01:10:54
yes Ryan
Will
01:11:05
I see there are a lot of snowball questions here, are we going to ask a real question(s) about economics and policing

a little tangent: great video on how Restorative Justice and dialogue circle focuses on supporting a student's needs fully through action and rebuilding their relationship with their peers and the school community.

The Nassau county police commissioner thinks he can rehab everyone....and solve all social problems...he was mapping petty larcenies over overdose 911 calls, visiting the homes nearest the petty larcenies, finding drugs where an overdose took place, and then arresting and giving them a choice of coercive rehab or arrest....this is what we are dealing with in Nassau County.

Angela Davis said in lose terms that Biden is weak and can be bullied into doing what we want and 45 has no morale compass or concept of consequence

We’ll never have as much influence with Biden and the DNC then we have now. Biden needs to earn our vote. They should know that if they don’t address our concerns, we can vote Green. Like you said, we probably have more influence on local politics.
