ATLANTA ‘DEFUND THE POLICE’ BACKER HAS CAR STOLEN IN BROAD DAYLIGHT: REPORTS

Brown told reporters during a virtual Thursday press conference that no amount of additional policing would have prevented the car from being sold, according to the outlet.

This was not a circumstance of a number of officers on the beat,” Brown told The Independent in response to a question about whether the theft highlights a need for more policing. “This was a circumstance of these kids operating within whatever they felt was necessary for their own survival, a situation of generational poverty and acting on this basis of survival.
