Further proof that Democrats’ hypocrisy knows no bounds: Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) asked for special police protection at his home in January while demanding publicly that police departments across America be defunded.
“About a week after the January 6 incident at the Capitol, we received a request from the Congressman’s office for increased police presence at his residence,” Yonkers Police Department Detective Lt. Dean Politopoulos said.
Police did provide “directed patrols” around Bowman’s house for two weeks after his request, Politopoulos said.
Bowman called for his congressional colleagues and local entities to “defund the system that’s terrorizing our communities. A system this cruel and inhumane can’t be reformed. Defund the police, and defund the system that’s terrorizing our communities,” he said.
It takes a special kind of arrogance to think you can get away with taking away police resources from other people while requesting more of them for yourself. Let’s hope Bowman’s constituents have had enough of him and throw him out on his ear in 2022.
