President Biden’s going to wake up sore over this one! ANOTHER Sheriff is ditching the Democratic Party, joining forces with the rest of America who believe that “Defund the police” just may be the stupidest motto since England came up with “Hey, not the tea!” in late 1773.
Not only is it stupid, it’s DANGEROUS! How could anyone not understand that we NEED good police. Now if you want to sell something like “Police reform” or “Get Bad Cops Out” then I might be able to make a purchase.
But no, they really, really want to DEFUND THE POLICE. That’s why Sheriff Chip Shuler became the THIRD elected law official in just the past year to ditch the Democratic Party. In his own words, he left because of the “relentless attack on law enforcement by Democrats in Richmond and Washington.”
“My deputies work hard to serve and protect the citizens of Smyth County. As sheriff, it has been difficult to watch my deputies try to move forward during this unprecedented assault on our profession,” Shuler said in a statement, according to WJHL. We (law enforcement) remain an honorable profession and should not be judged by the bad acts of a few. I have always been a conservative throughout my law enforcement career of 38 years.”
Shuler joins other Sheriffs John McClanahan and Brian Hieatt in stepping away from the party.
As Hieatt puts it, democrats are learning “you get what you pay for.”
“When we hear talks about defund the police, take away resources, the bottom line is, you get what you pay for and that’s with any profession,” Hieatt told Fox News. “So if you take away money and have to pay bottom dollar for certain for all the service and not have the resources to properly train, not have the money to properly test all the new applicants and new people coming in, then you’re not going to get the best. If you want better people in law enforcement, then there needs to be more funding to be able to do more testing, to be able to offer better pay as the people come in.”
