Clay: Defunding The Police Going About As Terribly As Expected

Crime and shootings are up in every major city, and OutKick founder Clay Travis has the stats to back it up. So, do you really want to keep defunding the police?

“Defunding the police is the single dumbest idea that has existed in America since the 21st century started, and it may be the dumbest idea that has existed in America since I was born,” Clay says in his latest video. “The tragic results here are easy to see and hard to comprehend.”

When you demonize police and keep them from protecting and serving, the result is mayhem and tragedy, Clay adds.

“Everybody has forgotten what it was like in the late ’80s and early ’90s when it came to crime,” he says. “Everybody has forgotten what New York City was like until 1994, when Rudy Giuliani came to office. … We are talking about crime skyrocketing anew, and everyone focusing on the wrong blame.”

Defund the police? Yeah, it’s been a miserable experiment. Check out Clay’s full take in the video below.
