Atlanta City Councilman Antonio Brown voted to defund the police. Now, as a mayoral candidate, Brown is running on a platform of “reimagining public safety.” It didn’t take much imagination for Brown to react when his Mercedes was recently stolen. He called 911 to get the police. Of course, Brown complained that he sat on hold for five minutes with the 911 dispatcher and that it took 45 minutes for the police to arrive. Perhaps rather than pushing to “defund the police,” more funds might actually help.
