An expert in the area of criminal law and procedure, Assistant Professor Sean Hill recently penned an op-ed in The Columbus Dispatch titled, “Ma’Khia Bryant, George Floyd point to why police should be abolished now.”

“Voters and politicians alike should confront how often policing reforms have been pursued without success, and should familiarize themselves with abolition as an urgent and needed solution,” Hill wrote. “Too many families have forever lost their loved ones because of our country’s over-reliance on policing and prisons. The time for transformative change is now. The only question is whether we have the will to pursue it.”
