Calls to “Defund the Police” were heard all over the nation amid protests over the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd in 2020. City councils grappled with budget priorities and police unions insisted defunding is not the solution. In this “”Speaking Frankly”” episode, CBSN Originals speaks with activists, police officers, experts, and mothers who’ve lost sons to understand the “Defund the Police” movement, how it seeks to address issues of systemic racism in policing, and what its impact could be.
