Apparently, more blacks were arrested for gun violence than whites and that was considered discrimination. But, there was no information on whether those arrests were legal and based on actual probable cause.He [Portland's Police Chief] added that shootings have also spiked since the defunding of the Gun Violence Reduction Team over accusations of racism. There were 99 shootings in July, up from 35 in July 2019, police said.
IMHO it's about the money, they want the money that's used for police, courts and prisons to be given to their "community group". We've already seen with CHAZ/CHOP how they would handle security. Gangs of semi-official vigilantes enforcing whatever they can make up on the spot.I cannot comprehend the logic for defunding the police. Honestly, what to these defunders think will happen to crime? How about defunding criminals by locking them in jail rather than releasing them? I read that one gang banger is wanted in three separate drive-by shootings since he was released with no bail in NYC, the Big Toilet.
My travel agent neighbor recently joked about offering "Purge" tours to NYC and LA.
