Over 100 Police Agencies Pull Out Of DNC Security Agreements
Police have heard the Democrats’ calls to defund the police and are reacting accordingly.
Just two weeks ago the National Association of Police Organizations, which endorsed Barack Obama twice, threw their support behind Donald Trump.
Now, over 100 police organisations are pulling out of their agreements to guard the Democrat National Convention. As Just The News reports:
More than 100 police agencies are now backing out of agreements to send officers to next Month’s Democratic National Convention, in Milwaukee. Among the given reasons is that officers are concerned about a recent order by local authorities halting the use tear gas to control unruly crowds.
Last week, the Milwaukee police chief was order to justify his department’s usage of tear gas during protests in late May and early June spurred by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. A citizen oversight commission has now ordered the Milwaukee police department to ban the use of tear gas and pepper spray. Police Chief Alfonso Morales reportedly could lose his position, should he fail to meet that requirement.
Robert Fletcher, the Deputy Chief of the West Allis, Wisconsin police department told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel “Our concern is that in the event protests turn non-peaceful, such a policy would remove tools from officers that may otherwise be legal and justifiable to utilize in specific situations.”
On the bright side for the Dems, there’s no shortage of social workers that can guard them in the police’s place.
