Don’t you adore it when the media helps to trigger an issue by advancing a leftist narrative, then stories on the issue as in the event that they’re an harmless bystander simply protecting the information?
The USA has a police officer scarcity proper now. The media is partly guilty for this, however they’ll by no means admit it.
They’ll by no means come proper out and say that they superior the left’s demonization of the police for months on the behest of the activist left.
From NBC News:
The U.S. is experiencing a police hiring disaster
America is within the midst of a police officer scarcity that many in regulation enforcement blame on the twofold morale hit of 2020 — the coronavirus pandemic and criticism of police that boiled over with the homicide of George Floyd by a police officer. From Minnesota to Maine, Ohio to Texas, small cities unable to fill jobs are eliminating their police departments and turning over police work to their county sheriff, a neighboring city or state police…
Not less than 521 U.S. cities and cities with populations of 1,000 to 200,000 disbanded policing between 1972 and 2017, in response to a peer-reviewed 2022 paper by Rice College Professor of Economics Richard T. Boylan.
Previously two years, a minimum of 12 small cities have dissolved their departments…
On the coronary heart of the issue is the exodus from regulation enforcement. Officer resignations have been up 47% final yr in comparison with 2019 — the yr earlier than the pandemic and Floyd’s killing — and retirements are up 19%.
Do the folks at NBC Information suppose nobody understands how this occurred?
Shocked. Shocked, I let you know. https://t.co/3LcadeeXmQ

High TOP* ranges of our federal management have been flagrantly encouraging political violence, rioters have been being coddled and excused, officers have been calling for the “defunding” of police departments, now the #soft_on_crime Democrats are stunned on the disastrous outcomes??

The entire idea of ‘Defund the Police’ ought to go down in historical past as one of many dumbest issues ever recommended.
