Police Are Refusing To Work As Security For The DNC
Democrat Leaders have been supporting the BLM movement and their call to defund the police, letting the police know that they are on their own. But this doesn't phase Dems, they oddly think that everything is hunky-dory between the police and them. A Milwaukee Police Chief was told that he needs to ban crowd control tools while guarding the DNC. But instead of neutering his officers, he decided he would tell the DNC they can get their guards elsewhere and he is not alone as 100 police agencies did the same.
"More than 100 law enforcement agencies have reportedly pulled out of security agreements to send personnel to help with security at the Democratic National Convention next month in part because they are concerned about recent efforts to limit law enforcement’s use of tear gas and pepper spray in responding to violent riots.
Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales was ordered last month to change the department’s policies to ban the use of tear gas and pepper spray.
“Since the Milwaukee order was issued, more than 100 law enforcement agencies in Wisconsin and across the country decided against coming to Milwaukee, Morales told WTMJ-TV on Tuesday,” the Associated Press reported. “They were concerned with directives placed on the police department, including not allowing tear gas or pepper spray, he said.”
In Wisconsin, Franklin Police Chief Rick Oliva said, “It is apparent there is a lack of commitment to provide the Milwaukee Police Department with the resources it needs to ensure the safety of peaceful protesters, attendees, citizens and police personnel. I can not send personnel if they are not properly equipped or will not be allowed to engage in appropriate actions which would ensure their safety.”
Perhaps this is the wake-up call Dems need in order to realize how much they need the police. I can't wait to watch the Dems complain about how they feel unsafe without a police presence after they have been practically trying to abolish them for months now.
