Houston police chief Art Acevedo: ‘We are at a watershed moment’


Art Acevedo, chief of police in Houston, has been outspoken about the death of George Floyd and the protests that have followed. He tells TODAY: “I really believe that we are at a watershed moment, and I’m very hopeful that we’re going to see some real change.” He calls the “defund the police” movement “a false equivalence,” adding that communities “don’t want less police – they want good policing.”
