Now that protestors and thugs have gained a foot-hold in getting politicians to fold like a bad-tent, they’ve been embolden to push the envelope and ask/demand for more. What better solution than to defund local police departments.
What could possibly go wrong. Who wouldn’t be in favor of that. Think of the possibilities. Consider it an experiment, similar to using explosives and alcohol simultaneously on the 4th of July, or asking your drinking or bowling buddy to pack your parachute prior to sky-diving, or putting your home on-the-line at the roulette wheel in Vegas.
I think it would be an amazing idea with a few caveats. I would exclude de-funding the police department in my home town of Naperville. I would also exclude the towns my children and grand-children live in, and don’t defund police departments in all cities that have MLB teams, and maybe NFL and NBA teams (OK, let the soccer cities go). Also I would want to keep police departments in all cities and towns that I may travel to. (never end a sentence with a preposition).
Also defund all the police departments in the great State of Iowa, AKA ‘God’s country’. “Is this Heaven, no it’s Iowa”. Iowa is the only state where it only rains at nighttime, you can leave your car keys in your ignition at all times, never need to lock the doors to your home, where all the men are strong, all the women are beautiful, and all the kids are well above average. Well, on second thought, keep funding those police departments because that’s probably why Iowa is Iowa; great security and police presence.
Numerous cities and municipalities are considering defunding their police departments. Residents may not be too excited about the idea, but local politicians, city councils, looters and thugs are getting on-board with the idea. I say they should give it a try and see what happens with the caveat that they not be allowed to escape to cities with police departments. Let’s see how that works.
