Democrats are hot on “defunding the police” or at least partially defunding law enforcement, but what would that look like in real life?
Here is the entire stupid thing brutally summed up by five political cartoons:
Do those about sum the whole thing up?
The Democrats “defund the police” movement has to be one of the dumbest things they’ve ever come up with. Case in point:
Minneapolis City Council President: Calling the Cops When You Have a Break-in ‘Comes from a Place of Privilege’
During a surreal moment Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender said on national TV that calling the police when you have a break-in comes from a place of privilege.
This one segment clearly shows how loony, goofy and dangerous Democrats have become.
CNN host Alisyn Camerota asked Bender “Do you understand that the word ‘dismantle’ or police-free also makes some people nervous? For instance, what if in the middle of night my home is broken into who do I call?”
Bender then showed the world just how insane she really is “Yes. I mean, I – I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know – and – and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.”
“Because for those of us for whom the system is working, I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm’s done.”
The people of Minneapolis sure know how to pick them, don’t they?
Maybe the water in that city is laced with something that causes citizens to throw common sense out the window and elect stark raving lunatics.
Bottom line is there is no epidemic of police brutality towards black people.
Here’s the truth about police shootings of blacks that the media is hiding, via Larry Elder at PJ Media:
There is no “epidemic” of racist cops killing black suspects. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, police killings of blacks declined almost 80% from the late ’60s through the 2010s, while police killings of whites have flatlined.
Meanwhile, in 2017, according to the CDC’s National Vital Statistics Reports, non-Hispanic blacks were eight times more likely to be a victim of homicide (homicide death rate: 23.2 per 100,000) than non-Hispanic whites (homicide death rate: 2.9 per 100,000).
The No. 1 cause of preventable death for young white men is accidents, like car accidents and drownings. The No. 1 reason for death, preventable or otherwise, for young black men, is homicide, almost always at the hands of another young black man.
In 2018, there were approximately 7,400 black homicide victims, more than half of the nation’s total number of homicides, out of a black population of 13%. Of that number, the police killed a little over 200 blacks, and nearly all of them had a weapon or violently resisted arrest.
So basically all of the anti-police sentiment we see in Minneapolis and around the country from the left is all based on a lie.
