So, Defund the Police Didn’t Work Out for You, Then?

Portland mayor calls for big police budget increase | One America News Network (oann.com)

After the way you have treated the police for the last year and a half, do you think they’ll come back to you?

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) has pledged to increase the police budget one year after defunding the police.

During a community town hall meeting on Wednesday, Wheeler said he’s targeting around $7 million dollars in new public safety spending. This comes as Portland experienced its most violent year on record, with a historic 72 homicides this year.

“Many Portlanders no longer feel safe in their city,” said Wheeler during a news conference. “Business owners have closed up shop, for fear of doing business in high-risk areas. Commuters fear for their safety, whether taking public transport or going by foot. Parents are scared to let their children play outside.”

Many Portlanders no longer feel safe in their city? Whose fault is that??? Who encouraged the riots there? Who told the police to stand down? Who kicked out the National Guard?

I applaud the call for increased funding, but step one is for you to resign in favor of someone who won’t allow criminals to destroy the city.
