Another Democrat who champions the ‘Defund the Police’ movement now wants their protection.
According to Town Hall:
According to a new report in The New York Post, yet another anti-law enforcement Democrat has been seeking special police protection despite publicly advocating for police budgets to be slashed and accusing law enforcement officers of being white supremacists.
Representative Jamaal Bowman, a Democratic Socialist from New York, reportedly requested special police protection for his private residence from the Yonkers Police Department. According to the Post:
“About a week after the Jan. 6th incident at the Capitol, we received a request from the Congressman’s office for increased police presence at his residence,” Yonkers Police Department Detective Lt. Dean Politopoulos told The Post.
“In response, our Intelligence Unit was notified of the request and the local precinct instituted what is called a directed patrol at the Congressman’s home for the next two weeks,” Politopoulos said.
While a discussion about police overreach could be long overdue the hypocrisy does not help find a solution.
