For a fair amount of time, Democrats have chosen to hitch their wagon to the “defund the police” movement. Certain leftists in Congress, such as House Rep. Rashida Tlaib, have taken things one step further, urging for the nation to dismantle law enforcement in America altogether.
Republicans, since the inception of the movement to defund police, opposed it. Unlike their left-wing counterparts, conservatives know that reallocating funding from law enforcement to social services plays into the hands of criminals.
Since the rise in crime across the nation, leftists are progressively coming to the realization that defunding law enforcement just doesn’t work.
Walking back calls to “defund” the police
In Oakland California, Los Angeles, New York City, and Baltimore, the leftist leaders are looking to restore and even increase funding for the police. It is no coincidence that these areas are hardest hit by crime since their bright ideas to defund law enforcement.
Across several leftist cities in America, murder rates have doubled. Meanwhile, theft, shootings, carjackings, and other crimes are rising in cities like Atlanta, Chicago, etc.
