Marylanders Want To ‘Re-Fund The Police’ Despite Dems’ Campaigns In Opposition

The people of Maryland are in solid agreement to up the police presence after watching spikes in crime spread throughout their cities. Despite the Democrats’ strong stance to defund police forces, Americans living in areas infested with crime, notably homicide, are pushing back on the unprincipled belief that policing is a negative aspect of society to support.

In a poll provided by the Washington Free Beacon, well over the majority of polled Marylanders supported an initiative started by Republican Governor Larry Hogan to add “an additional $150 million into local and state police.”

The polling results confirmed that 88 percent of African American participants were in general or strong agreement with the idea of re-funding police according to Hogan’s legislation. Hispanic voters partook in the support (74 percent) as well as Caucasian voters (89 percent).

Gov. Hogan’s two pieces of proposed legislation — the Violent Firearms Offender Act and the Judicial Transparency Act — are set to create more robust systems that prohibit crime through increased penalties for criminals who “use and illegally possess firearms.”

Democrats have been vocal against the re-funding effort, calling Hogan’s proposition a “political stunt,” per the response provided to the Beacon.

“People are being shot nearly every single day in Baltimore City, and we all have an obligation to do something about it right now,” Hogan announced, championing police support. He added, “With all of the actions we have announced today, I want those families and all of the victims of this violence to know that we will not stop pursuing those criminals who are terrorizing our community.”

  1. 88 Percent of Black Marylanders Support Hogan’s ‘Re-Fund the Police’ Initiative

    His High Holiness Reverend George Floyd (with a golden casket and Nancy Pelosi kneeling with a kunta minte cloth on), BLM, De-Fund the Police, CRT, anti-racism (no need to wear (compliance) masks at BLM “mostly peaceful protests” because racism is a public health crisis!)… and now we are all waking up from the woke nightmare of 2020… the woke left milked it for all it was worth and then some though didn’t they?

    The woke left have used up blacks and milked their fake “oppression” to their detriment so much that even the dumber ones are figuring it out, so it’s time to move on to a new class of Victim Voters so the woke left can cling to power… illegal immigrants are going to be the new blacks, the woke are already working on normalizing illegal immigrant voting rights… sorry to inform you blacks, you have been used up and now your woke users are ready to cast you aside… there’s a new game in town…
