Cops Criminalize Protest; Psychiatrists Medicalize It


From Susan Rosenthal: “Mass mobilizations against police terror have raised a number of demands including replacing police with social workers and therapists. While the sharp increase in pandemic-related distress seems to support this demand, it is a trap.

‘Replace the cops with mental health workers!” is a really well-intentioned statement, but the current mental health system is also a white-dominated, violent, coercive, and unaccountable structure that disproportionately harms people of color.’ – Morgan M. Page”
