‘Defund the Police’ discussion held at Williamsburg block party
A block party was held in Williamsburg Saturday where there was plenty of food and an open discussion about what it means to defund the police.
Those in attendance spoke about how reinvesting money from the NYPD’s nearly $6 billion budget would impact the community.
NYPD officers listened from the sidelines, having blocked off Bedford Avenue and North Third Street for the event.
For weeks, Bedford Avenue has been a hub for all kinds of demonstrations.
