House Republicans seeking to hold Democrats accountable for ’Defunding Police’

House Republicans on the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security urged Democratic Chairwoman Sheila Jackson Lee to schedule a hearing to allow Subcommittee Members to hear from law enforcement and civic leaders about how the increase in violent crime is attributable to defunding of police. They state that violent crime is exploding in American cities that have defunded the police.

The left does not seem to understand that the world is a dangerous place where a restraining of evil is required. From parenting to policing to national defense, they don’t see the need to use measured, disciplinary force to prevent a rampant, out-of-control overflow of human evil. Instead, they want to scale back our freedoms and control the populace through excessive regulation, which they believe will eliminate the need for targeted policing and other limited restraining measures. It’s just plain un-American. Left’s lopsided thinking needs to be exposed and refuted with self-evident logic.

The crime rate in the most vulnerable areas is skyrocketing. But nothing will fix it until citizens in those areas demand it. Too many believe the hype and the media do not cover much of the violence in vulnerable neighborhoods, so it goes largely unnoticed except by victims and those close to them. The media is largely to blame for suppressing the true scale of what happens from defunding police.

I sure hope it can be fixed. But they'll have to get rid of the career politicians and sellouts first.

Defund the Police isn’t difficult to understand. Crime isn’t some magical act that occurs because of spooky “evil” people, the world is never so black and white. Crime occurs due to poverty and lack of opportunities and that is what defund the police is about. It’s about refunding into education and social programs so that people don’t need to resort to crime to survive. Secondly, America is a police state where the police system isn’t about solving crime, it’s about oppression of peoples (not just black people but poor Americans in general). American policing is so wasteful that it spends over 100 billion dollars on it and only solves 44% of violent crimes and only 12% of property crimes. Compare this to 40 years ago where the USA spent 47 billion dollars (adjusted for inflation) and solved 75% of violent crimes and 60% of property crimes. This is what Defund the Police is wishing to address by reducing wasteful funding, retraining officers and reinvesting into communities that need it.
