    liberals like to play words games "reallocating" or redirecting ....

    At Least 13 Cities Are Defunding Their Police Departments

    those words all mean the same thing.... cops lose their jobs..

    love to be there when a "counselor" tells a thug with a 9mm Semi... " Look son you don't want to do this... think about it ....KAPOW

    criminals don't give a rats ass for listening to some fool (that's unarmed) " Look this isn't going to help your situation.

    they are criminals for one reason and one reason only .. THEY COMMIT CRIMES and don't give a shit about laws.

    Like NYC that cut funding for their PD's , they are NOW boosting funding because they found out the desperately NEED the PoPo to rein in the criminal elements in their cities.

    .. the USA has the largest gun violence problem anywhere in the world, second to only some place like Yemen.

    The Police have been forced to respond to this gun violence by adopting much more militaristic standard operating procedures which in turn requires much more financial resources to manage. A lot of the cries for "defund the police" are really cries for stop behaving like the military and stop shooting first and asking questions later.

    People of color suffer disproportionately more police violence than white people and this is where the the "defund the police" movement started.

    That's because "people of color" are out there gang banging. Hip Hip has made gang banging glorious. Black folk need to get their shit together and stop listening to while liberals like yourself who make excuses for them. You're dong them no favors. You're an enabler.

    1. In 2016, the police fatally shot 233 blacks, the vast majority armed and dangerous, according to the Washington Post. The Post categorized only 16 black male victims of police shootings as “unarmed.” That classification masks assaults against officers and violent resistance to arrest.
    2. In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer.
    3. Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population.
    4. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers—committed vastly and disproportionately by black males.
    5. White killers of blacks numbered only 243.
    6. The total number of violent crimes rose 4.1 percent in 2016, and estimated homicides rose 8.6 percent. In 2015, violent crime rose by nearly 4 percent and estimated homicides by nearly 11 percent. The last time violence rose two years in a row was 2005–06. The reason for the current increase is the Ferguson Effect. Cops are backing off of proactive policing in high-crime minority neighborhoods, and criminals are becoming emboldened.
    7. Four studies came out in 2016 alone rebutting the charge that police shootings are racially biased. If there is a bias in police shootings, it works in favor of blacks and against whites.

    I thank Phil for stating the facts, but liberals don't give a damn about facts or black people. All liberals want to do is use blacks to push their radical agenda. It disgusts me.

    yeah I know the cringe and get into the fetal position when facts are brought up.

    But as Ben Shapiro says " My facts don't give a fuck about your feelings "

    Re: The Shining City Upon a Hill

    Joe Biden has lost all control here at home and on the world stage. Things are out of control. This turned ugly much quicker than I could have predicted. It's Jimmy Carter all over again, folks. Look out.



    Battered Biden under siege as crises confound the White House


    Memo to President Biden: Life moves pretty fast, and now the world is on fire.


    Israel is erupting, Americans are utterly confused when masks should be worn for COVID-19 protection and then there are the agita-inducing long lines for gasoline.


    And that was just Tuesday.


    A lot has changed in a matter of days.


    Friday was supposed to be a glorious day for Biden. The latest employment numbers were set to be released, and economists were gushing that a million new jobs had likely been created in April by exuberant employers and their newly vaccinated workers.


    His team no doubt was prepared to unleash Biden to perform a little victory dance at the White House celebrating the stupendous number. But the show had to be hastily revamped when the actual tally came in nearly three-quarters-of-a-million jobs lower than expected; just 266,000 jobs created and unemployment unexpectedly rising to 6.1%.


    "You might think we should be disappointed," Biden said, which was indeed something people might think. But the American Rescue Plan he signed into law in March "was designed to help us over the course of a year — not 60 days," he said.


    Far from being a disappointment, a jobs report that included 734,000 jobs fewer than expected was good news.


    "Today, there is more evidence our economy is moving in the right direction," Biden said. "This is progress. This is a testament to our new strategy," he said. "We've got work to do, to state the obvious, we have work to do."


    You might think.


    The jobs figures were just the first in a series of out-of-nowhere body blows hitting the president during a remarkable five days of bad developments that stretched from Israel to the Mexican border and up the East Coast via the Colonial Pipeline.


    After delivering a few remarks Friday, taking in the "Weekly Economic Briefing" and meeting with his "Jobs Cabinet," the president knocked off at 5:45 pm and headed for the peacefully wooded Catoctin Mountain Park, where the presidential refuge Camp David awaited in Maryland.


    He was ready for a rest, but the world wasn't ready to give him one.


    By Saturday morning, the Colonial Pipeline, which transports nearly half of the East Coast's fuel supplies up from Texas, had been turned off, the victim of a ransomware cyberattack by a group of nasty hackers who, by the way, might be working with the Russian government. Biden was "briefed" on the situation Saturday morning.


    By late Monday, more than one in 20 gas stations in Virginia was out of fuel. Tuesday, governors throughout the Southeast were declaring states of emergency, and the Biden administration was begging drivers not to hoard gasoline.


    BIDEN REACTS TO WEAK JOBS REPORT, SAYS US 'STILL DIGGING OUT OF AN ECONOMIC COLLAPSE,' BUT ON 'RIGHT TRACK'


    Meantime, Palestinians had begun violently clashing with Israeli police at the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, an escalation of tensions that had been simmering and occasionally boiling over for weeks. Hamas began launching rocket attacks into Israel, which responded by bombing Gaza.


    Back in Washington, Republicans began accusing Biden of tilting too far toward the Palestinians while failing to at least verbally sock it to Hamas. From the other side, leftists in his own party hit the White House for supposedly coddling Israel, with Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., accusing Biden of "enabling" Israel with foreign aid.

    By Tuesday, an echo of the violence had spread to the streets of New York, where there were dustups between pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian supporters in front of the Israeli consulate.


    As new crises broke out all over the place, there were searing reminders that an old one was still festering.


    U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealed Tuesday that migrant encounters jumped yet again this past April: over 178,000 in all, nearly a tenfold increase from 2020 and still above levels seen in the 2019 surge at the Mexico border.

    In a heartbreaking scene, five unaccompanied migrant girls were found abandoned by a Texas farmer on his land. And reports emerged that border agents in Texas had seized $4.6 million in methamphetamine and cocaine, while a member of the National Guard had found an abandoned bag of "AK-47-style pistols" in the border region.


    TEXAS FARMER FINDS MIGRANT GIRLS ABANDONED NEAR BORDER WITHOUT FOOD, WATER: 'IT'S JUST GETTING WORSE'


    A new poll reminded the president that the border crisis was dragging him down, with only 43% of those surveyed approving of his immigration policy.


    In a bit of beguiling partisan moves that has befuddled many Americans, Senate Democrats pressed ahead Tuesday with their plans to overhaul the nation's election laws -- after many states, such as GOP-guided governments in Florida and Georgia, enacted different changes for their own constituents. Divisive racial undercurrents have developed amid all this, all on the watch of the so-called unity president.


    The ACLU quickly weighed in to tie new voting laws to race: "This terrible bill was drafted as a direct swipe at Georgians’ participating in the Black Lives Matter protests who are asserting for their constitutional rights," Andrea Young, executive director of the ACLU of Georgia, said in a statement posted on the group's website.


    On the COVID-19 front, the once-unimpeachable Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was taking shots on the chin for some dubious recommendations to a populace ready to get back to normal.
