People who are saying that “defund the police” is something new aren’t paying attention.
Remember Obama’s “dear colleague” letter? The one that forced colleges to create kangaroo courts on campuses and adjudicate sexual assault cases? I kept asking when that first started, “why not the police? Why can’t police investigate crime? Why should completely unqualified people be forced to do it?”
Well, now we know why. It was a trial balloon. The end game is becoming clear now that this campus experiment has been brought to other places. Notice how often we hear about “community policing” these days? That’s what it means. Police each other for ideological infractions while real crime will go unpunished.
I wondered back then why Obama would bother with something as ridiculous as that “dear colleague” letter. But now it’s all coming together.
