Poll: Majority of voters reject proposals to defund the police

Democrats have had some horrible ideas in the past, but defunding the police has to be the worst. It looks like the American people agree.

A joint poll by Beacon Research (D) and Shaw & Company (R) found that 62% of registered voters believe funds should not be funneled away from police, Breitbart reported. Also noteworthy is that only 33% of respondents were in favor of defunding police.

Among Republicans, 87% were opposed to the measure as well as 79% of Evangelicals. Among Hispanics, their responses were about dead even with 46% in favor and 47% opposed to the measure.

The poll was conducted between April 18-21 and was a sampling of over 1,000 voters. The timing was significant because it was during the final days of the trial and verdict for the Derek Chauvin trial, the former Minneapolis police officer who was charged and convicted of three counts of murder for the death of  George Floyd.

Floyd’s death while in police custody was the catalyst for nationwide violence and civil unrest, many protests planned under the banner of Black Lives Matter. Aside from over $1 billion in damages the riots caused, it also sparked outcries to defund police.

While scaling back police budgets appeased the racial injustice industry, it has predictably led to increased crime where it’s been tried, Fox News reported. Minneapolis, which became ground zero for the BLM and defund police movements, saw a 22% increase in crime between July 22, 2020, and March 28 compared to the same time period the year before.

New York City went through with its plan to shift $1 billion away from the New York City Police Department last July. As of March 21 this year, murders were up by 11.8% while the number of shootings soared by 40.1% in that same time period.

Defunding police is unpopular among the American people because it’s a bad idea. While the narrative is that black and brown people are in danger of being shot by police, the truth is that law enforcement keeps neighborhoods filled with all kinds of people — white, black, brown, and other — safe and secure.

The police are killing criminals who don’t respect human life, who don’t respect authority, who don’t obey the law, who resist arrest, who flee the police. Every one of those killed and filling the news for all of this time would still be alive if they obeyed the law and didn’t resist arrest. Get your head out of the dark place you keep it.

The people that are killed are fighting being arrested. The arrest in nearly all cases is legal and the individual is fighting with or running away from Police! When prople have a warrant against them, fighting an arrest only makes things worse. Firing a weapon at any poilce is stupid as nearly all oficers are much better trained than any civilian. In any civilized society differences are settled in a court, not the streets!!!

Tell them to stop commiting crime’s and resisting arrest. Respect goes a long way, the majority of Police Officer’s don’t set out to kill someone.

Part of the problem is that people are not compling with the police! Don’t run from them. Just do what you are asked to do and you most likely won’t get shot. Parents need to get that through to their kids. COMPLY! Don’t run. Do what the police ask you to do. it’s that simple.

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?



HARRIS is guilty of violating 18US Code 2381 Treason, 18 US Code 2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code 2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE 2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

How about a new law that says police can only stop and question / arrest people that are white?
Does anybody think that would a really good idea? It would completely end police shooting of minorities.
They could still kill each other by murder, drugs , or with flying bullets like they do now.

This ludicrous idea to get rid of the police reminds me of a “similar” idea some years ago. The response was a SIMPLE question: “Got an emergency, call a HIPPIE”

Please the only ones the police are killing are the criminals who don’t or can’t live with in the bounds of the laws. If they are so innocent why do they run? Why do they try to evade the police by causing police chases ???? It’s not because they are law abiding citizens…..come on wake up pull your head out of Camel Toes Twat and breathe some fresh air its what they want you to believe so you will comply and behave the way they want. It’s the same with China Virus ……wear 3 masks, goggles, and ear plugs…..while I Fauchi go to a game and drink a beer with no mask right beside my friend no 6 of distance….etc….get caught and claim you were on a break!!!! Believe what you want, do what you want use your F-ing Common Sense.

If this ever happens there will be Millions of
guns ready to defend the citizenry of this
Country 2nd amendment or not.!Once the
police are removed then it is up to the people
to make sure freedom prevails.
it appears the Idiots that wish for this to happen can’t
be aware that millions of guns are sold and the
billions of rounds of ammunition that are privately
owned in American households.

If the Dems want to defund the police then we should refuse to fund their security staffs. Let them find out what it is like to go without protection.
The Defund the Police crowd are the biggest morons on this planet. They are incapable of thinking things through, yet who do they rely on when they are threatened?
Just look at people like LaBoob and the old crone Waters, et al. There’s absolutely nothing happening above the neck, just completely brain dead

this Country is going to do by allowing America’s enemies to gain
control over all free people.”
