Retired officer Don Coleman joins host Lisette Xavier to discuss his 25 years working in law enforcement. Is the perspective that the policing system is broken still present when you take a look at it from the inside? Tune in to find out. Part 1 of this series featured activist and musician Ruel James who shared his strong opinions that policing needs to be de-funded OR dismantled to have any chance at hope for the future. **it should be noted that the opinions and ideas expressed in this episode are exclusively those of the host and guest.

EP 9 - UNFUCK THE POLICE *PART 1
Part one of our two part series looks at the movement to de-fund/abolish the police. Activist and musician Ruel James joins host Lisette Xavier to discuss exactly what this means, how it would look and why people are calling for change. Part two of this series will address the topics in this episode from the perspective of someone from the world of law enforcement because only discussing one side of this would be shitty.
