Murders Skyrocket Across the Country In Wake of #Defundthepolice Political Idiocy

Early on Christmas morning in Nashville, as most of us slept or opened presents with our young children, a massive bomb exploded in the city’s pre-dawn darkness. Despite one of the largest bombs to go off in decades in any American city, there were no deaths or serious injuries. Why? Because six heroic Metro Nashville police officers rushed to move people away from dangerous proximity to the bomb. The six officers, pictured below, deserve our praise, but in 2020, unfortunately, that type of praise has been rare. Because 2020 has been a year when the media, athletes, teams, sports leagues and individual users on social media have almost universally demonized police. Talk to any police officer working anywhere in the country and they will tell you that demonization has very real consequences in their lines of work: police are leaving the force in droves, driven away by the lack of respect from people in this country, by the media’s insistence that police should be stripped of their authority and defunded, by the argument that there should be far fewer people with badges on our streets. That there should be less officers like the heroes in Nashville. @Outkick Thank you! pic.twitter.com/NSBV3Eajqj […]
