``Simone emphatically asserts that he doesn't want to abolish the police. From a practical standpoint, he recognizes the need to offer safety and security for American citizens. He's calling for the "repurposing" of the police function. This will entail creating a new infrastructure that truly serves the people and the dismantling of a heavily weaponized, militaristic arm of the government that harms, oppresses and terrorizes American citizens. He says that we need to develop appropriate systems, policies and procedures. Technology can be utilized effectively in these efforts of rebuilding a re-imagined security and safety system. ''
