Major US Cities Backtracking on ‘Defund the Police’ After Explosion of Violence
We tried telling them that this would happen!
We’re not stupid. We could see with 100% clarity what would happen if you start defunding the police and start pulling this sort of crap where they are demonized. But it took them longer to start seeing it because…well…liberals are dumb.
Since this ridiculous call for defunding the police, crime has skyrocketed in liberal cities where this sentiment is embraced.
“The violence needs to stop, its unacceptable. People deserve to feel safe in their neighborhood, they deserve to be able to send their kids out to the sidewalk to play and to recreate without bullets flying by. That’s unacceptable. We should be holding these perpetrators accountable,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, a Democrat, said at a May 7 news conference addressing a spate of violence that ripped through the city.
Frey put much of the blame of rising crime rates on activists’ calls to defund the police in the wake of George Floyd’s death. Floyd’s death last year kicked off massive riots and calls to redirect police funding toward social programs. Violent crime surged 21% in Minneapolis last year, and the trend is threatening to continue through 2021.
“When you make big, overarching statements that we’re going to defund or abolish and dismantle the police department and get rid of all the officers, there’s an impact to that,” Frey said. At a news conference earlier this week, Frey said he is requesting federal and state help to curb crime in his city, citing Minneapolis’ dearth of cops.
There’s a saying that we had for statements like this when I was a kid. It was, “No s**t, Sherlock!”
But again, liberals have no real capacity to use proper logic and have no understanding of how economies and societies actually function properly. They base everything off of emotion and stupid untested (or sometimes failed) ideas.
