Texas Gov Strikes Back: Punishing Liberals For Pandering
It doesn't matter how you spin it, if you severely cut the police budget you are inviting crime into your city. Everyone knows that police stop crime. But many Liberals, last summer, chose to give in to the will of rioters hurting their constituents. Crime spiked in these poorly led cities since there were no longer enough officers to handle all of the incoming calls. Texas Gov. Abbott saw this failed leadership and is passing legislation to punish these negligent leaders.
"Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is done allowing progressive cities to self-immolate via efforts to defund the police.
In an interview with Fox News, Abbott responded to a recent shooting in Austin by matter-of-factly stating, “We are going to defund the city.”
Abbott tweeted About the decision:
"This is what defunding the police looks like. Austin is incapable of timely responding to a victim shot in the head. Texas won't tolerate this. We're about to pass a law that I will sign, that will prevent cities from defunding police. Sanity & safety will return."
The bill effectively prevents cities from defunding municipal police agencies by drying up resources.
This would be done by prohibiting cities that defund police from annexing more territory, allowing residents of those cities to disannex themselves, and ensuring that the cities pay for any state police assistance they require in order to shore up their law enforcement."

BLM's defund the police movement was a waste of everyone's time. By having cities cut their police budgets, Liberal leaders actually made their cities less safe, and these leaders should have known better.
Governor Abbot is onto something here. I hope other states follow suit in stopping the madness. For now, at least Texas is backing the blue.
