How will police be replaced with social workers?

Perhaps you've wondered how Leftists are going to reimagine policing by sending in social workers? How will gun violence, breaking and entering, domestic violence (often the source of calls to police) and child abuse be handled? Your problem, like mine, may be we're thinking of the traditional social worker we knew years ago. Tsk, tsk. Now it's "radical social workers" who will be saving the homeless, the ex-con, and those others oppressed by white people. Notice, although whites are the majority of those in social dysfunction like crime, homelessness, and family distress, they are also blamed by the researchers and experts (who are also mostly white) for the "system." 

This is a review article called "The opposition." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6145824/ It cites the latest trendy academic sources to lead the unrest, division and violence. Learn the ever evolving language. The key word is "transformative." Transformative potential, transformative consciousness, transformative action. The author cites his own unpublished work and leans heavily on CRT. This article is 4 years old and predates the years of Obama and Trump, but you can see the ground work was prepared decades before for the year of Floyd. This "perfect storm" wasn't an accident. These ideas always spring from academe, not the grass roots or neighborhood.
