Police originated as a force to capture escaped slaves. While history teaches that the earliest organized police force was formed in Boston in 1838, the true history dates back to the slave patrol who formed in 1704, with officers mounted on horses who could carry whips, ropes, and guns. Not only did they hunt escaped slaves, but they also used fear-based tactics to maintain order among populations of slaves. These patrol groups were disbanded after the civil war, but laid the foundation of the KKK...so FTP!
Defund the police and put the money back into schools and communities!
