The movement to reform police culture threatens to become a parody of itself

We are fast approaching that point where a genuine social movement becomes a parody of itself.

The protests surrounding the wrongful death of George Floyd have drawn much-needed attention to the issues of the militarization of the police, police abuses in minority communities, and criminal justice reform. The protests are good. The movement is necessary.

Unfortunately, the protests and their momentum have also attracted a dedicated band of extremely loud grifters, hangers-on, and political activists whose own selfish goals, demands, and actions are distracting from the original purpose and goal of the movement. Well-meaning and dedicated protesters are still talking about criminal justice reform, but it is becoming harder to hear their message through the crackle and screech of those calling for the police to be “defunded” and those calling for censorship in popular media.
