The violence against police officers continues to escalate. We have seen 1️⃣8️⃣8️⃣ officers shot this year, one every 27 hours! This is a 32% increase from this time in 2018.
This is a disturbing and deadly trend that should be condemned by all—and it must end! #EnoughIsEnough
It is clear from a recent Pew survey that the overwhelming majority of Americans, 73%, want their police department budget to stay the same or increase.
Time for opportunistic politicians to stop pandering to the mob, stop embracing the defunding/dismantling movement and listen to the people. Especially when we see violent crime skyrocketing in our cities. #DefendNotDefund
