Activists say the way to stop police brutality and killings is to cut law enforcement budgets and reinvest in services. Some lawmakers now agree

The movement to defund the police is gaining significant support across America, including from elected leaders, as protests over the killing of George Floyd sweep the nation.

For years, activists have pushed US cities and states to cut law enforcement budgets amid a dramatic rise in spending on police and prisons while funding for vital social services has shrunk or disappeared altogether.

Government officials have long dismissed the idea as a leftist fantasy, but the recent unrest and massive budget shortfalls from the Covid-19 crisis appear to have inspired more mainstream recognition of the central arguments behind defunding.


So, uhm, how will a defunded police department enforce the fascist shutdowns, stay at home orders, and forced church closures when wave 2 of COVID hits all of these concrete hells and their mayors and governors whip out their Gestapo erections for all to see this autumn? Considering the overlap between COVID Karens and the Anti-police protesters, I'm not sure they've thought this one out very well.

They're not thinking ahead.

If they do there'd be no one to enforce their gun control agenda.

Presidential candidate Joe Biden will be on board with this movement soon.

Last week he declared that no drug offenders should be imprisoned. And all those in prison for drug offences should be released.

There'd also be no one to 'save the children' next time some freak decides to shoot up a school or movie threatre.

There's some real idiots in this country.

They are most likely wanting to have the UN blue hats! Remember the Mayor of Chicago awhile back requesting the UN to step in?

It's going to be funny when all that is left in the cities are gang members, thieves, drug addicts and hookers. I feel sorry for anyone too poor to move. Country folks will just handle matters themselves.

We've all been worried about the New World Order, but now it's about to be Welcome to the New Wild West!

If the left ever once thought ahead more than 2 minutes into the future we wouldn't be in this mess.

Just when you don't think they can get any dumber, they go and do somethin' like this!

Apparently there is no bottom to stupidity.

Wait what?

There can’t be that many protesters there. It’s freaking 110F in Phoenix right now.

This is also a contributing reason why we haven’t had huge riots.

The pic shows a few people. Morons weren’t even smart enough to find shade.

Then there is this:

Minneapolis City Council Looking At Disbanding Entire Police Department

The City Council wants a public safety capacity that doesn’t fear our residents. They want a a community-oriented, non-violent public safety and outreach model that doesn’t resort quickly to pepper spray when people are understandably angry. That doesn’t murder black men

Soon to come to a Liberal city near you.

Take the kid gloves off and watch the gang bangers, drug dealers, and low life criminals have a field day in your city. Is this what city residents really want?

I predict gun dealers around the country will continue to have record sales for quite some time.

The way I see it, when the enforcers (the cops) are too broke to enforce those gun laws, those laws sort of no longer matter, ya?

Joe Biden won't be the Dem nominee come November. Book it.
