Why is the only race mentioned in the summary Black?

"Police are now searching for the suspect, and are offering a $3,500 for any information about the assault"

That's a "we don't really care" amount of money.

Any random act of violence is proof cops need military gear?

Defund the police was a chant at a protest.

It never meant abolish the police.

It meant, cops don't need tanks.

That money could be spent on other things like social services.

It was never picked up by Democrats as a platform.

Republicans are more fond of the term than anyone else.

Regardless, I'm sure liberals are to blame.

This NEVER happened in New York or anywhere else before a small cut to the police, right Boaz?

Waste of space.

... Hey! Lets Defund the police in NY ...

if you had been paying attention to what is happening in New York City, you would know who won the Democratic primary for Mayor last month.

Hint: it was not someone who even mentioned being in favor of defunding the police. Quite the contrary.

en.wikipedia.org

Actually, it wasn't picked up by a lot of Democrats. I define "a lot" more in percentage terms than sheer numbers. If 10% of Democrats rallied behind the literal meaning of the "defund the police" slogan, I'd be surprised.

What did happen is that the Republicans picked up the phrase and used it with its literal meaning against Democrats during the 2020 election. Creating the environment where many people (you?) think the literal meaning was a Democratic platform type of topic.

Think? Bo@s? AHAHAHAHAHA! He needs a UK rag to tell him what to be outraged about.

Q. What does defunding police have to do with this?
A. Nothing. NYPD received a $200M budget increase this year.

Boaz is a liar and an insurrection supporting traitor.

Not sure what your definition of "a lot" is.

Is it a few faces on the news?

Regardless, I said, "It was never picked up by Democrats as a platform."

"Platform" being the key word in that sentence.

Meaning, regardless what a few people said, the Democratic Party never considered making "defund the police" into a policy.

So. It was words chanted at a protest, and probably by a few politicians trying to show camaraderie with fellow Americans who would be voting for them.

Actual facts show Democrats in the past 7 month have actually voted to increase funds for local law enforcement.

Despite this. Republicans love to claim Democrats want to "Defund the Police," in order to keep people angry.

Stop letting conservatives enrage you, Boaz.

Chanted by every pol attending the protests when they were supposed to be on lockdown, but lockdowns didn't matter when it was time to march to defund the police.

This why you really should have pepper spray and a taser on you. Even if you don't like guns you need a weapon. Pepper spray the attacker and taze them repeatedly until they become subdued.

Good for him. I heard an interview with him on NPR. It doesn't sound like he's the type who would pander to the far left social justice movement. If Democrats can run more people like him, then they'll be able to successfully fend off the DTP label.

"So. It was words chanted at a protest, and probably by a few politicians trying to show camaraderie with fellow Americans who would be voting for them."

It only takes a few politicians chanting along with and pandering to people using an idiotic slogan for their opponents to pounce on it and paint the entire party with that brush. You obviously have no problem with Democrats or Progressives engaging in broad brush politics, so all this whining about people playing political games is a bit hypocritical.

"It only takes a few politicians"

Especially when none of their colleagues in their party condemn them, and stand against them, on the side of law and order.

Not all Republicans are insurrectionists, but all Republicans decided insurrection isn't a deal-breaker.

Crime is fake news, crisis actors are claiming to be victims of tourists.
