What does that actually mean?

To me it suggests withdrawing money, but given BLM want to abolish the police, why use a mealymouthed word such as ‘defunding’.

Have BLM suggested an alternative to the police, or is their ultimate aim lawlessness?

Why does the idiot Peter Pedant get away with calling Answerbankers white supremacists?

Roy, because some of you are. He's using AB overstatement to make a point. He didn't call you scum, so he's not all that bad.
Roy; he didn't even call you idiot.
Name them
Atheist comment, because some of you are, seems to imply he thinks other people are whiteSupremacists but not himself.

But it depends on your definition of what white supremacism is. By today’s standards it seems if you don’t take a knee to BLM you are a white supremacist.

Defund if about using policing funds in other areas. Such as social workers, community projects etc.

How the 999 operator is going to distinguish the need for a social worker and a policeman is to be shown but all the social workers I know work Mon to Fri 8am to 6 pm.

These social workers are going to have to be at their desks 24/7.

However most of the things advocated by BLM and the anarchists are already in place and they don’t seem to have worked that well just yet.



2 people were shot in Chaz/Chop last night, one of them died. The emergency services weren't allowed in.

What do the acronyms CHAZ/CHOP actually stand for?
CHAZ (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) or CHOP (Capitol Hill Occupied Protest),
Thank you. Where is it exactly?
An area of Seattle covering six blocks I believe.
Crazy, man, just crazy.
That sums it up, yes.

just wondering what BLM would expect to happen - once prisons are abolished - to truly evil people, such as Joanna Dennehy?

presumably the public will be expected to take its chances?
I had assumed that "Defunding the police" made a lot more sense in the US than in the UK. Similarly with prisons, as a matter of fact. In the US certainly a lot of prisons are privately-run, accounting for just under 10% of the prison population. Private control of prisons shouldn't really exist, because the goal of prison is presumably not to run it at a profit.

As to policing, the slogan might have been better-expressed as "reallocate some of the spending that goes towards police forces for unnecessary excesses such as surplus military equipment to other social programmes that have a demonstrable benefit in reducing crime levels in the first place". But that is less snappy.
