House Republicans Slam Democrats Over Defund the Police Support

House Republicans on the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security urged Democratic Chairwoman Sheila Jackson Lee on Wednesday to conduct a hearing concerning “defund the police” support by Democrats.

“Radical left-wing proposals to defund police forces threaten public safety and put law enforcement officers at risk. The reckless decisions to defund police forces — and the Biden administration’s apathy towards these actions — have had a real effect on American communities,” the letter read.

“Homicides have increased in many of the cities that have defunded their police forces. Other violent crimes are also on the rise in many of these cities,” the letter added.

The request also addressed the correlation between decreased law enforcement funding and the increase of homicides in cities like New York, Los Angeles and Austin, Texas.

“After slashing its police budget by nearly $1 billion, New York City saw a 97 percent rise in shootings and almost a 45 percent increase in homicides. Austin, Texas, saw a 50 percent spike in homicides. Los Angeles, California, experienced an increase of 11.6 percent in homicides,” the letter read.

The letter specifically called out Democrats who have supported defunding police.

“Republicans have condemned violence and been united against radical calls to defund the police. However, many Democrats, including several on this Committee, have expressed support for defunding police forces.

“In fact, when given an opportunity to support police and denounce the defunding of police, Democrats on the Committee voted unanimously to support state and local governments that defund their police departments,” the letter noted.

The request for a hearing concluded the letter. “We ask that you schedule a hearing in the near future to allow Subcommittee Members to hear from law enforcement and civic leaders about how the increase in violent crime attributable to defunding of police.”

 

Many cities that have cut police budgets have experienced surges in violent crime. A year later, some of the same cities are increasing budgets to help attract new officers to the force after large numbers of law enforcement employees have left.

The nonsensical strategy fails on a number of levels. Even when protestors experience problems, they immediately call 911 for help. The very action contradicts the effort to defund police.

Further, what would defunding the police solve? Nothing. Crime would continue, and worsen, as communities would lack the people and resources to respond.

The current push to defund police doesn’t come from conservative Americans, but rather from foreign countries like the CCP and Russia who want to sow discord and dissent in America as well as leftist politicians pushing causes their elitist donors support. Rather than attack the blue, Americans need to back the blue.

Their jobs aren’t getting any easier, but we don’t have to make it worse by supporting anti-law enforcement policies or the politicians who encourage them. At least one group of Republicans is willing to take action against the effort, urging a hearing that will bring the matter to the forefront in Washington and point out the hypocrisy of defund those called to protect and serve Americans.

  1. LOLOL!!! Where was the vaunted Republican Party when it might have mattered? Where were they years ago when ELECTION FRAUD became a serious issue? Where were they when we gave them the Presidency and Congress to affect seriously needed changes – including investigating ELECTION FRAUD?

    They did what they do best – they ran crying from the important issues and fought everyone trying to stop the Communist take-over. Remember their “promise” to repeal ObamaCare? LOLOL!! Their promise to end ELECTION FRAUD? LOLOLOL!!!!

    If you’re still waiting for the SOLD-OUT closet Democrat GOP to save you you’ll have a lo-o-ong wait for nothing. The GOP – the mouse that squeeked, the Do-Nothings, the two-faced sell-outs. They won’t get another dollar or supportive word from me ever again.

    But, you gotta admit, they’ve learned how to put on a good show!

    I’m thoroughly FED UP with Washington LIARS and two-faced sell outs!

    1. Welcome to the club. We MUST HAVE TERM LIMITS, that’s the only thing that will stop this crap.

      1. Never happen. These Professional, Career, ‘Ruling-Elite’ politicians of both parties are ambulance-chasing lawyers that like their new DC gig.

    2. Unless these do-nothing republicans change the election process (more specifically, removing the Dominion election hardware and the Smartmatics and other corrupt election software from all elections in the US), America has failed. Mike Lindell’s programs gave Absolute, Scientific Proof that China Joe Beijing Biden was elected by China (see COVID Lab-Leak coverup), Iran (nuke deal) and Germany (see Nord Stream 2 pipeline waiver by Joe) in the biggest criminal hack of November 2020 election. But let me leave you with good news, Constitutionally, for years the US Federal government (mostly Democorruptocraps) have over-reached to acquire unconstitutional power over the US Citizens but, ‘RED’ states are fighting back (see Texas, Florida and others) against Dementia Joe’s Executive Orders and Democorruptocrap’s spending (thank you Joe Manchin). Joe Biden’s Administration is losing the power Constitutionally-reserved for the States.

    1. Oh really you POS. Your the little little whining, crying butt wipe who calls the Police over anything and then complains when they will not do as you demand. I know your type. The next time you need help you little turd, call BLM or Antifa.

    2. yea asshole if you get in a bind and need help you call 911 and hope the police get there in time to save your sorry ass. If it does happen call blm and see what happens then dumb ass.

    3. Comments like that expose the Democorruptocraps for what they are. I am pushing the idea that all anti-American democorruptocraps must carry ‘green cards’ or given the opportunity to explore their homosexuality in the penal system of choice (South Korea has offered to house these criminals for pennies),

    4. God forbid, but what if you home is broken into by a gang of thugs who torture and kill your father or brother.
      And proceed to rape and beat your mother or sister or wife and children. Call your friends, the BLM or the Antifa mob, and call the police all at the same time and see which is first to show up and will fearlessly risk personal
      life and limb to rescue your ‘loved’ ones. 128 officers have been murdered in the line of duty this year already
      doing a necessary and thankless (by you idiots) job. Only criminals don’t want police.

  2. Idiots on the left love lawlessness and disorder. Watch what happens when good, law abiding citizens erupt.

  3. Unfortunately, Lady Liberty occasionally requires bloodshed (BCLM/Antifa bloodshed doesn’t count – apparently, the members of both groups saw 12 years of taxpayer funded education as Day-Care only). The rights, liberty and Justice we enjoy today are not free, ask any Vet. The Democorruptocraps and Chinese are pushing this great nation toward a civil disruption on a scale not seen before. Lock-n-Load and stay out of ‘Gun-Free’ zones.
