Slogans like ’defund the police’ lose people: Obama

Former President Obama had some harsh criticism for the ’Defund the police’ movement in an interview. ’I guess you can use a snappy slogan like ’defund the police’ but, you know, you lost a big audience the minute you say it,’ Obama said. Some progressive lawmakers sharply rebuked Obama’s comments. Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted that defunding the police was ’not a slogan but a policy demand.’

I am of the opinion that it IS a slogan. If you defund police, who perform law enforcement. We are not a species to at can be depended on to do the right thing as individuals. Therefore some form of law enforcement is needed. I am absolutely against the idea of “defunding” police completely. I am in favor of controlling how much artillery they retain, and like muting how many assault vehicles they keep. More for the right tasks, less for the gestapo toys.
