There is no question Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is calling the shots in the Democrat Party.
That’s bad news for the left’s electoral prospects.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will take Democrats over a cliff with this giant disaster.
Not too long ago, Democrats and Republicans were able to agree on some basic things like that the police are a good thing.
For years Democrats have insisted that people didn’t need guns to protect themselves because the police would be there to protect them if needed.
The Democrats can’t use that argument since they are trying to push for the police to be defunded.
While most cities won’t go as far as Minneapolis and try to completely ditch the police others are making it difficult for police to work by imposing regulations and cutting budgets.
New York City Bill de Blasio is following Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s orders and cut the police budget in New York City by a billion dollars.
There’s a reason that big cities in America started to pay more money to their police.
Crimes rates in the 70’s to the 90’s were really high in America and resulted in white flight that made the cities deteriorate even more.
Police budgets went up and the crime rate went down.
There are real benefits to the black community. The number of black homicide victims per year was cut in half.
If Democrats allow their cities to become high crime zones their cities will suffer and all the people with the economic means to move will escape to communities where they will be safe.
Even most New Yorkers don’t want the police to be defunded, a new poll found.
“A poll conducted by the Siena College Research Institute found that 57% of New Yorkers oppose cutting police funding and that 60% opposed defunding the police in a separate question, with the majority of the opposition coming from residents who lived upstate,” The Washington Examiner reported.
Even in New York City itself a slim majority don’t want the police to be defunded.
Ed Mullins, the president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association said that “there is no leadership, no direction, no training for new policies. Department brass is paralyzed [and] too afraid to uphold their sworn oath for fear of losing their jobs. Sadly, the people of this city will soon experience what New York City was like in the 1980s.”
Data shows that shootings and violence towards the police are up in New York City as their mayor cuts funding.
Police are paid for by taxpayers to protect taxpayers.
When the violence climbs defunding the police will become highly unpopular and Democrats will learn what a terrible choice they made.
