WALSH: ‘Defund The Police’ Is A Stupid, Crazy Idea That Will Make Everything Worse

As Senate Democrats are busy kneeling in honor of George Floyd while cloaked in African garb (not a joke), leftist activists have settled on a specific policy: they want to defund the police.

The Minneapolis City Council has already announced its intentions to defund and dismantle its city’s police department, though Mayor Frey is not yet on board with the proposal. Frey was asked about the idea at a recent Black Lives Matter demonstration, and his negative response led to him getting cussed out and booed off the stage by an angry mob. Imagine Frey’s shock. He’d just allowed leftist radicals to rampage through the streets for two weeks, even offering up a police precinct to be burned as an atoning sacrifice, and that was not enough to win him favor with the mob. There’s a lesson in there, for anyone paying attention.
