Ask the question a different way (Would you support shifting funds from militarizing the police to improving early childhood development, cleaner air and water, and more affordable college and housing for low income communities?) and you will get a much different answer.

Did taxpayers approve dispatching cops making $400,000 to subdue and kill an unemployed citizen over an alleged counterfeit $20 bill? The subsequent massive protests that swept the nation, which continue to this day, show many taxpayers do not approve of such use of their funds.

Did taxpayers approve police departments using taxpayers’ monies to procure military grade vehicles and equipment for police to then use against unarmed citizens protesting police brutality?

Pollution, crime, violence, police abuse…it’s all linked.
