Obviously, I’m all for reforming the way we police, and I encourage everyone with a platform to get involved.

However, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little confused with Prescott’s donation. How does a private citizen dictate police training?

Who do you even donate your money to for that? Do you just write a check to the police department? How do you make sure your ideas are being followed?

It seems like a foolish thing to donate your money to. Police reform is going to have to be monitored and funded by the government at different levels.

I’m not sure how private citizens plan on doing it.

I applaud Prescott for wanting to get involved, but I’m not sure this will have much of an impact. I could be wrong.

We’ll have to wait and see, but I’m not confident this will get the job done.
