Below is a Twitter thread, turned into a Threadreader app article, describing the many errors in this New York Times copaganda article. Copaganda is propaganda that promotes increased funds for police, as well as promoting the idea that the policing system and criminal prosecution system are just perfect as they are — rather than being honest about the severe problems in those systems.

What New York Times is doing here is using People of Color to promote Right Wing elitist — so-called “centrist” — policies regarding police departments and criminal prosecutions.

Here is the threadreader app of the critique of the article by Alec Karakatsanis, founder & executive director of Civil Rights Corps.:

Here is the Threadreaderapp article by Alec Karakatsanis, critiquing this one.
