(Right Country) – For months now, Democrats have been demanding that local communities around the country defund their police departments — some want them completely disbanded — and the money used for social programs to supposedly benefit minority communities. However, what these folks don’t seem to realize is that doing this will hurt those some communities by removing police presence necessary to keep them safe.
Police have been victims of intense hatred since the death of George Floyd, which resulted in explosive and violent rioting that is still continuing today under the guise of “protesting.” Some cops have died, others have been seriously injured.
Well, as it turns out, law enforcement has had about enough of the nonsense and are starting to take a stand against the Democrats. More than 100 police agencies from across America have opted to ditch agreements to provide security for the Democratic National Convention, which is scheduled to take place in Milwaukee in August.
Here’s what we know from Newswars:
The report notes that the move by cops is a reaction to Democrat reactions to the anti-police unrest that has raged throughout the Summer.
“They were concerned with directives placed on the police department, including not allowing tear gas or pepper spray,” said Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales.
“It is apparent there is a lack of commitment to provide the Milwaukee Police Department with the resources it needs to ensure the safety of peaceful protesters, attendees, citizens and police personnel,” noted Wisconsin, Franklin Police Chief Rick Oliva.
“I can not send personnel if they are not properly equipped or will not be allowed to engage in appropriate actions which would ensure their safety,” Oliva added.
“I understand that use of chemical irritants and pepper spray is serious and those are to be used only when legally justified. But when you take that out of the continuum that doesn’t leave the officers much other than getting harmed or using deadly force and that’s not good for any officer or the public,” Waukesha Police Chief Daniel Thompson also warned.
The reaction of police is hardly surprising given that Democrats have introduced reforms to hamper police, and even expressed support for calls to defund the police.
Democrat Ilhan Omar (MN) even described police as a “cancer,” adding “we are saying we don’t want your damn reforms.”
Why in the world should cops feel obligated to provide security for people who clearly want to destroy their livelihood and have vilified them as hateful racists with an axe to grind against people of color?

“The Minneapolis Police Department is rotten to the root, and so when we dismantle it, we get rid of that cancer, and we allow for something beautiful to rise, and that reimagining allows us to figure out what public safety looks like for us,” Omar said during a speech at a protest in June.
What the police are doing is letting it be known that they don’t appreciate the way they are being treated. They have every right to defend themselves against the slander of the Democratic Party and of the radicals involved in the Black Lives Matter movement.
A person should not be made out to be the bad guy because they are a cop. That’s ridiculous. Not all cops are bad cops. This should be obvious. If all cops are bad as some maintain, what’s to prevent someone from thinking all blacks are bad since so much of our nation’s crime are committed by black individuals?
Both ideas are dead wrong. Period. But you have to be consistent in the application of logic and principle. If you aren’t, you get the madness of the left.
