Dear YGB Community,
We know all too well how the arrest disparity perpetrated by Madison Police creates more harm than good in our community. What's more, they are arresting folks for crimes of poverty.
Just recently, a homeless Black man in Madison was arrested due to crimes of poverty, and it is vital that we understand that a stronger social safety net, better public housing resources, and policies in place to end racial disparities, could have stopped this from happening.
This man should not be punished - the system that put him into that situation should be punished. But instead, this man is now locked in a cage with a $2,000 bail that he cannot afford, and ZERO resources to help change his situation.
