So after all this time, with defund the police, why haven't I heard a defund the governor or mayor?
Defund city council? Why only the police?
The funny thing is abolishing the police essentially abolishes the power their office as well.
The police are there to enforce the law they passed. Without a means of enforcement, the law is meaningless. With no one to enforce your rule, you have no power.
Of course certain governors and mayors aeem totally ignorant of this very simple fact. Perhaps they believe the mob will enforce their rule, but the mob serves only itself. Look what happened to Ted Wheeler.
