  1. Criminals are opportunists. What do you do when they come for you?

    Crazy crazy

  3. FOOLISHNESS … COPS PROTECT THE PUBLIC… LOOK AT THE LACK OF RESPECT THEY RECEIVE…

      Look at the lack of respect that they don’t give.

      David Wilson police don’t get called to nice situations. They won’t attack you. They will put you down if you don’t follow lawful instructions or resist arrest. This isn’t rocket science.

    Defund the police only applies to Western countries not the world….

  5. This violent global movement has been well-organized and financed. Who benefits from this? Why does it continue when justice is being served?

    Why don’t u let the criminals run the court of law because that’s what ur doing is giving them all the power which is sad

    • So true! How about everyone don’t follow order and do whatever they want! Is that what protester wants?

  9. That’s too far.

    The States Should start with their sheriffs who makes a buisness out of prisons

    Yeah like it worked well during the Murray Hill riot

    Defund the Police is the chant that the left is going to use to reelected Donald Trump.

    Without a doubt this is the most asinine idea ever. Before you give it any thought, ask yourself who is pushing this idea.

    Defund the police is the second stupidest idea of all time. The first was trying to stop covid.

  15. invest in defunding the “educators”.
    (& the msm in 🇨🇦)
    we’ll get a far bigger, better, faster return on the investment(s) 👍👍

    Calls? From who? Complete trash news.

  17. Wow….insane. George Floyd didn’t deserve to die, but do some research and look up his criminal past…he held a gun to a pregnant woman’s belly and robbed her in her home and that’s just one example.

    take our legal guns away and let the armed criminals have no opposition, sounds like a liberal idea.

  19. corey williams | June 8, 2020 at 6:34 PM | Reply

    lets get rid of public funding for the police and let the rich hire private security!

  20. looks like posts are being deleted – so much for freedom of speech.
