This week, Lee Camp interviewed Alex Vitale, author of End of Policing.
Vitale proposes that we as a society rethink how we deal with the societal problems which we currently use the police for.
For example, Portugal has made great strides in diminishing their drug problem by legalizing all drugs. Moreover, related problems like HIV, STD’s and overdoses have decreased dramatically.
Instead of involving the police, offenders are given treatment.
