Over the past week, criticisms of the law enforcement community have reached shocking levels.
Following the death of George Floyd on Memorial Day, certain individuals have taken it upon themselves to start riots. These riots continue to escalate with police officers dying and otherwise facing serious danger as they work to keep matters from getting too out-of-hand.
Violent demonstrators have also defaced buildings with graffiti, looted businesses, and torched cars and buildings. As governors and mayors work to help cities come back from the damage, the left-wing isn’t done.
One of the Democrats’ latest demands entails the collective defunding of police officers; this demand subsequently prompted censure from President Trump via Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
Why Does the Left Want to Defund the Police?
On the political left, the narrative of police officers being evil and racist remains alive and well. Over the past almost two weeks now, many rioters who defaced buildings with graffiti have done so with anti-police rhetoric. Some examples include, but are not limited to “F*ck the police,” “kill a KKKop,” and worse.
