Since policing is a problem, the police should be removed from communities altogether, according to Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza.
Garza argued that the United States gives too much respect to police officers, explaining that when police do wrong, a few bad cops are blamed, rather than a “corroded and corrupt system.”

“Quite frankly, many of our [Black Lives Matter] members are continuing to investigate what it would mean to have police-free communities. I think what we’ve continued to see over time is that no moral appeal is actually stopping the deaths of black people, whether they be armed or unarmed.” Garza told Complex.
Garza also claimed that the Charlotte riots are a natural reaction; they occurred because people had been denied housing and good schools.
Garza’s claim does not mention the reports that up to 70% of the rioters were not even from North Carolina so we suppose they came to Charlotte to riot because they were denied housing and good schools in whatever community they lived in?
Garza herself is quite interesting. According to Dr. Ron Martinelli in his book, The Truth Behind The Black Lives Matter Movement, Alicia Garza favors a Marxist political ideology and is inspired by radical figures from the 1960’s such as former Black Panther Party Members Assata Shakur and Angela Davis. Shakir was convicted of killing New Jersey Trooper Werner Foerster in 1973 and later fled to Cuba where she remains in exile.
