Democrats are starting to walk back their push to ‘defund’ police amid skyrocketing crime rates across the country and their political consultants bitch-slapping them back to reality, telling them taking the position is a massive loser in 2022.
But the genie is already out of the bottle on this, and they are the ones who let him out.
The far left of the party continues to pine for a time when every day will be like “The Purge” and we can all live miserable, hunkered-down lives being hunted by gangs of psychopaths.
That’s the ‘America’ they want.
Well, they’re about to get it, as reported by USA Features News:
Resignations and retirements are soaring among police departments around the country amid a Democrat-driven effort to 'defund' departments, even as crime rates and violence in larger cities skyrockets.
According to a survey of roughly 200 departments, retirements were 'up 45 percent and resignations rose by 18 percent in the year from April 2020 to April 2021 when compared with the previous 12 months, according to the Police Executive Research Forum, a Washington policy institute,' as reported by The New York Times.
In the Big Apple alone, for instance, more than 1,000 cops retired last year than in 2019 — or 2,600 retirements compared with 1,509 the previous year.
In Minneapolis, the epicenter of rioting and violence following George Floyd's death, saw its uniformed force fall from 912 to 699.
Asheville, N.C. Police Chief David Zack said his department has lost more than one-third of its officers, saying he 'knew' they 'were going to be in trouble' as the force reduced traffic stops last year by 85%.
'Officers who left said they endured a barrage of 'good riddance' taunts on social media,' The Times reported. 'Some said they were accused of leaving because the higher level of public scrutiny meant they could no longer beat up people of color with impunity.
'One sergeant who quit after a decade on the force, who did not want his name published because of the aggressive verbal attacks online, said last summer had chipped away at his professional pride and personal health. He could not sleep and drank too much,' the paper continued.
This isn’t going to end well, folks. Buckle up, if you haven’t already.
