Texas Mayor Blasts City Council For Buckling To BLM Protesters
BLM is steadily ruining our country with their demand to defund the police. Across the country, liberal leaders are bending over backward gutting police budgets to appease these angry mobs, that don't even understand what they actually want. Dallas, Texas is no exception as their city council is now calling for a cut in police spending, which Mayor Eric Johnson claims is not the will of the people of Dallas.
"The city of Dallas is facing a serious uptick in violent crime, and it’s not just a few days or weeks or months in the making. We’re talking about a couple of years now of steadily increasing aggravated assaults, steadily increasing homicide and steadily increasing domestic violence,” Johnson said"
“I don’t believe, and neither do the people of Dallas … that now is the right time to be defunding the police, or cutting funding to the police to send a message or anything like that.”
"Johnson said public safety should be a priority, and he’s called for cutting the salaries of highly paid city employees, instead of the 25% reduction in the police overtime budget.
“We need to prioritize public safety right now,” he said. “I do believe that there are ways to generate revenue to do some things that we all agree on the City Council are important to do that don’t involve cutting the public safety budget at a time like this.”
The city council claims the cut to police budget will actually aid in funding other social programs meant to curb crime, but for some reason can't see that fewer officers on the street is a huge issue. But BLM it seems is only trying to cause chaos. If they were really looking to change things it would a call to reform the police which would actually mean an increase in funding for whatever training they feel the police are lacking.
