The protests following the murder of George Floyd in 2020 set the stage for a nationwide demand for changes to the criminal justice system. The call to “defund the police” gained mainstream attention and paved the way for the election of a “progressive prosecutor”. But more than two years later, the movement’s momentum has slowed, with some of those prosecutors facing backlash and, in some cases, recalls. This week, we heard from Chittenden County, Vermont, State Attorney Sarah George, and Travis County, Texas, District Attorney Jose Garza about how their offices have survived without the backing and support of an outcry movement. Adjust the news in the absence of headlines about rising crime.
