Defunding the police…. not fake news but a reality

August 15, 2020

….sure most readers of this blog would smile when we hear on the news about people wanting to defund the police departments across this nation, because we have the intelligence and common sense to realize it will never work. Well it looks like the Austin city council has no common sense because they just cut, (aka defunded), the cities police budget by $150 million dollars in the cities 2021 budget. Now I know the ‘Christian Broadcast Network’ is against murder when they are saying a portion of that money will now go to abortion providers but even in an article by ABC news they state the same fact that $21 million of the $150 million will now go to social services including abortion access.

Now it is true Austin does not have the homicide rate like some other big cities but come on folks we have seen the police that are not defunded across the country just stand by and watch as BLM and intifada rioters rob and destroy business in many major cities just imagine what it will be like with an even smaller police presence. Austin councilman Gregorio Casar said about the defunding…”we should celebrate what the movement, (blm and intifada), has achieved for safety, racial justice and democracy.” I hope Mr Casar never needs a policeman.

Here in Dallas they are now talking of stopping the police from using non-lethal methods of crowed control like rubber bullets, tear gas and taser’s so  that leaves the policeman facing a mob of people looting a store with either harsh language or their gun?

Do some now seriously think
reducing the number
of police
will reduce the number of crimes
across our nation?

I truly can not wait
till one of those defunding supporters
is assaulted and needs to call
the police for help.

    I’m sure all of you know that Mpls. was going to do the same thing, but backed down as they need to change the city charter or some thing. Mayor Brain-Frey said to a crowd of protesters at the so-called Floyd memorial site that he would not support this. Boy, he was booed right out of there. Nice to see them eat their own.

    It won’t be, until the crime rates, hiked up, too fast, too high, will the government, realize, that it was, a horrible, mistake, reducing the number of officers, on the city governmentis, payroll.

    Good morning Pete.

    Until the emotion in the tirades subsides we’ll not rid ourselves of this nonsense. People with too much time on their hands need to get back to work and school.

    There is nothing rational about not understanding what police need to carry out to perform their job. The disconnect is disconcerting, and unfortunately I can only come up with one explanation, the upcoming election.

      ..and a good morning to you too
      if one were to believe in conspiracies one would think it ( all the turmoil over racism, police and the virus) will subside a short time after the election. I predict if the democrats win the election newspapers and network news will quiet down and COVID-19 will become just a stronger version of the flue, and all because the democrats have won and soon we will have President Harris running the country.
