The University of California, which was assassinated by graduate student Brianna Kupfer, has published a study that promotes ideas similar to those conducted by “police defund” advocates.

The University of California, Los Angeles School of Law has published the study on its official website. “what happens after we stop the police?“Published in June 2020, it proposes imprisonment for fewer crimes, a law enforcement policy passed by several major U.S. cities, including Los Angeles, that led to record-breaking violent crimes such as the murder of Brianna Kupfer.

The study examines “alternatives to law enforcement” and argues that law enforcement is “often indifferent to human life”. One of the alternatives to law enforcement proposed by the authors is that many disputes deserve “no response” by law enforcement officials, who ask people why they are asking for help from law enforcement or other individuals. z-self-thinking ”.

“Nowadays, people often work as surveillance agents for the police unnecessarily or maliciously. there are countless examples, ”the guide said.

Another alternative to law enforcement proposed by the authors is ‘prevention’, where crimes are reduced if resources are distributed fairly.

For example, according to the authors, if “all people who want to own a home are provided with housing” and people have access to mental health or free use of drugs, the number of 911 calls associated with these problems could have been reduced “dramatically”. .

Violence prevention education, controlled injection sites, and emergency health programs are ways to prevent law enforcement from interfering in incidents.

“Intervention” is also listed as an alternative to law enforcement, the authors argue that “community alternatives to 911” could be a way to resolve the crisis without police intervention.

“Through community trainings on community alternatives to 911 (CAT 911), drug, overdose, sexual assault, domestic violence, emergency care skills training across Southern California builds the skills, peer support, and resources needed to maintain police-free zones.

The authors also argue that the current legal system operates “in a very narrow way of understanding the consequences of harm and violence to communities” and that “changing justice” should be taken into account.

“Transformational justice is an‘ alternative political framework and practice ’that seeks to respond to violence without creating more violence and / or to reduce harm in order to reduce violence,” the guide said. creation is important for imagining the future without relying on a system of punishment. “

The authors argue that transformative justice is achieved when the person who caused the harm to the person “confessed the harm they caused, apologized for it, and clearly defined what they would do to prevent that harm from happening again”.

“People across the country who practice transformational justice are involved in processes that focus on healing, accountability and the safety of all participants. These are time-consuming processes that require accountability in a way that eliminates the need for punishment. “They will be asked to acknowledge the damage they have caused, apologize for it, and clearly state what they will do to prevent it from happening again. As the process progresses, the needs of the injured person will be centralized,” he said. . states.

The guide has a “food for thought” section that can be an alternative to the police in murder or sexual offenses.

“When people call the police after something has happened, it usually happens after it has happened. The presence of the police does not necessarily prevent crime or their intervention often encourages real responsibility, victims / survivors it doesn’t create decisions that make the rest whole or treat communities, ”the authors say. answer “If the government changes its focus and invests in prevention strategies such as housing, education and health, it is reasonable to expect a reduction in violence.”

A spokesman for the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law told Acesparks Digital that individual research conducted by scientists does not have to reflect the university’s perspective.

“These reports reflect the views of their authors, who are teachers, fellows and students involved in the UCLA School of Law’s criminal justice program. “We support. Similarly. In general, with scholarships produced by those involved in UCLA law, individual research products do not reflect the position of the law school,” the spokesman said.

UCLA did not respond publicly to the killing of the former student. The school did not respond to several Acesparks requests for comment on the subject.

On Jan. 13, Kupfer, a 24-year-old graduate student at the University of California, Los Angeles, was killed while working at a high-end furniture store in the city.

According to documents obtained by Acesparks Digital, the person who killed Kupfer had an active order to attack Shawn Laval Smith police.
