This week, founding editor Aja Arnold returns with an audio version of a previously published feature “How the Atlanta Police Department spends its money,” written by Christopher Luke and published in The Mainline in July 2020. While noise around the municipal elections continues to rise, Aja prefaces the reading with her thoughts regarding the races and the importance of focusing on research and data that dispels the myths of policing. Aja also shares where she’s headed in her future coverage for The Mainline, pivoting from local politics to deeper issues such as abolition, incarceration systems, and land back.
