Colin Kaepernick Publishing Book Arguing to 'Abolish the Police’
The core message of a new book being published by former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick: "Abolish the police”.
The book, titled "Abolition for the People: The Movement for a Future Without Policing & Prisons”, is set to drop in October and features 30 essays, including one from Colin himself.
Colin said: “The omnipresent threat of premature death at the hands, knees, chokeholds, tasers, and guns of law enforcement has only further engrained its anti-Black foundation into the institutions of policing. In order to eradicate anti-Blackness, we must also abolish the police. The abolition of one without the other is impossible.”
An insider says the conversation Colin wants to have with his readers is essentially this ... how do we reimagine and re-envision keeping communities safe without a militarized police presence?
