One result of the Black Lives Matter/George Floyd homicide protests taking place across America and internationally is the suggestion to defund poorly-performing police departments- or, re-funding police departments in municipalities.
Jazz Cabbage Cafe recently held an open discussion between crew and guests during their June 9 show. Also up for discussion: is Michigan opening up the state too soon, after the COVID-19 quarantine period?
Participating in the discussion were special guests Leaha Skylar and Denise Kirchoff. Kirchoff is a candidate for Washtenaw County Commissioner; Skylar is her campaign manager. Adding to the conversation was Roche, from the Medical Mondays podcast; John Schlicker and Traci Utley from Cannapalooza and N.E. Michigan NORML.
Cabbage show hosts Jamie Lowell and Rick Thompson direct the action, with cast regulars Derek Gauci, Colin MacDougall, Jim Salame, Debra Young and Ray Reyes adding their thoughts.
