Talking Over 100 Police Agencies PULL OUT Of Agreements To Guard DNC Convention

This is great! The Dems want to defund the police, so they can have their convention without police protection. That is only fair.

Quote:
More than 100 law enforcement agencies have reportedly pulled out of security agreements to send personnel to help with security at the Democratic National Convention next month in part because they are concerned about recent efforts to limit law enforcement’s use of tear gas and pepper spray in responding to violent riots.

Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales was ordered last month to change the department’s policies to ban the use of tear gas and pepper spray.

“Since the Milwaukee order was issued, more than 100 law enforcement agencies in Wisconsin and across the country decided against coming to Milwaukee, Morales told WTMJ-TV on Tuesday,” the Associated Press reported. “They were concerned with directives placed on the police department, including not allowing tear gas or pepper spray, he said.”

In Wisconsin, Franklin Police Chief Rick Oliva said, “It is apparent there is a lack of commitment to provide the Milwaukee Police Department with the resources it needs to ensure the safety of peaceful protesters, attendees, citizens and police personnel. I can not send personnel if they are not properly equipped or will not be allowed to engage in appropriate actions which would ensure their safety.”

Waukesha Police Chief Daniel Thompson responded by indicating that his department would not be sending officers to event, saying, “I understand that use of chemical irritants and pepper spray is serious and those are to be used only when legally justified. But when you take that out of the continuum that doesn’t leave the officers much other than getting harmed or using deadly force and that’s not good for any officer or the public.”

I hope they have to pay through the nose for private security. They deserve whatever comes their way as a result of their idiotic policy proposals.

Rent-a-Dumbass will be their greatest security achievement. The dingbats deserve it.

That would be awesome to watch rioters clash with private security.

Of course, if anything bad happens, it will be Trumps fault.

How many here are old enough to remember 1968 Democratic convention? Well they had real police there and it was still total ciaos.
Imagine twice the anger and half the law enforcement.

I was only 10 years old, but I remember my parents having an election party.

I was 22 and my wife , along with her parents, wanted us to move TO Chicago. I resisted but she was so damn cute, I couldn't say no. After 7 years SHE had enough and we moved back to St Louis.

Truth be told, I loved Chicago in the 70's. Unbelievable opportunities for a guy willing to work hard. Wouldn't dream of doing it now.

You all do get that most of the convention is virtuale and held on-line, only about 300 people are expected to attend the in-person event.

So, those "security agreements" mentioned in the opening are nothing?
