Without or from?

The first questions I remember asking when someone said "abolish the police" was "but who will protect us without the police? Who will we call in times of trouble?" I now realize that this single question revealed how much privilege I have in this country. I am privileged, because I wouldn't get a second glance from the cops if i was walking through a mall or a store. Or get stopped on the side of the road because of the color of my skin. Not everyone has this privilege. And because of that, we must fight for change. It's okay to not be sure but it's important to recognize where we can improve and grow.
