Dr. Phillip Atiba Goff is a psychologist known for researching the relationship between race and policing in the United States.
Activists have been calling for the dismantling of police for years, but it has gained traction since the killing of George Floyd. Many people of color don't feel protected by the police and believe Americans can survive without law enforcement as we know it. Phillip Atiba Goff, co-founder and CEO of the Center for Policing Equity, joins CBS News' Jeff Pegues to discuss what it would mean to defund the police and where the funds could be reallocated. Plus, Goff explains why the issue goes beyond policing and that this moment of protest should serve as an opportunity to rethink what it means to have safe communities and to reinvest in the communities that have been long abandoned.
In a moment where we’re arguing about the future of the police the perfect person to talk to is Dr. Phillip Goff. He’s a PhD, a professor at John Jay, and the head of the Center for Policing Equity. He’s a guy who studies policing and comes in and helps clean up departments. We talk about what’s wrong with American policing and how he thinks we can fix it.Patreon.com/toureshowInstagram @toureshow Twitter: @toure Toure Show Ep 147Host & Writer: ToureSenior Producer: Jackie GarofanoAssistant Producer: Adell ColemanEditor: Ryan WoodhallPhotographers: Chuck Marcus and Shanta CovingtonBooker: Claudia JeanThe House: DCP Entertainment  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
