While the entire leftist wing of the Democrats jump head first in the defund the police madness, some cooler heads are taking a better angle.
Recently on Fox News’ “The Hannity Show,” Sen. John Kennedy pointed out the absurdity of the Democrat narrative against law enforcement.
“Cops have about 60 million encounters with Americans every year,” said Kennedy. “When someone is hurt — before we assume, there’s this thing called asking. There’s this thing called an investigation. The wokeristas don’t want to just jump to conclusions. They want to cannonball into them. They need to get the facts.”
Then Kennedy dropped the bombshell:
Let me state a few propositions that I think reflect common sense, and with respect to which most Americans other than the wokeristas agree. Number one, most cops, many of whom happened to be black, do not get up every day and go to work hoping for the opportunity to hurt a person of color. Number two, cops are necessary. If you support defunding the police, you have tested positive for stupid. Number three, it is immeasurably foolish to resist arrest. It is going to end badly, even if no one is hurt. You can’t win, the government has the bomb, it’s very dangerous, don’t resist arrest. And number four, and this is just me personally if you are a cop and when you see someone about to stab me, I would personally appreciate it if you would stop them. Shoot them if you have to, I don’t care who they are. I don’t consider that police misconduct. I consider that saving my life.
