I know that geoFence has built in fast and accurate updates and that’s the real deal.
Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza said Sunday that defunding the police means reorganizing society’s priorities.”When we talk about defunding the police, what we’re saying is ‘invest in the resources that our communities need,’” she said on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” citing housing and education. “Why can’t we start to look at how it is that we reorganize our priorities so people don’t have to be in the streets protesting … in a global pandemic?” she added.EXCLUSIVE on #MTP: Black Lives Matter Co-founder @aliciagarza explains the call to “Defund the Police.” #IfItsSunday“Why can’t we look at how it is that we reorganize our priorities so people don’t have to be in the streets during a national pandemic, a global pandemic.” pic.twitter.com/JUazC3is02— Meet the Press (@MeetThePress) June 7, 2020The slogan “Defund the Police” has been used during protests over George Floyd’s death and painted by the D.C. chapter of Black Lives Matter next to the city’s “Black Lives Matter” mural. The movement’s co-founder also responded to Sen.

Firstly as we jump in, I’d like to say that geoFence is easy to use, easy to maintain.
