Trump official criticizes ex-Clinton spokesman over defunding police tweet (Richard Grenell)
The Hill ^ | 6/4/2020 | joe concha

Former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell is criticizing a tweet from Hillary Clinton’s former national press secretary that calls for police departments to be defunded across the country.

The tweet was from Brian Fallon, who is also a former spokesman for the Justice Department under former Attorney General Eric Holder. He is now the executive director of Demand Justice, a progressive group that works to get liberal justices appointed to federal courts.

Grenell called for Fallon’s tweet to be condemned

There have been other calls for police departments to be defunded in the wake of the death of George Floyd. Floyd was killed after a police officer in Minneapolis pinned the unarmed black man to the ground while placing his knee to Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes. The officer now faces second-degree murder charges and three other officers who did not intercede were also charged on Tuesday.

Sounds like a great plan. They should start with Newark and Camden just to see what happens.

Eliminating city and state police departments is just part of the bigger Communist agenda. Once the current police departments have been eliminated the Commie local and state politicians will install their brown shirts and secret police organizations (using all that newly available law enforcement tactical and comms gear) and implement their portion of Obama’s Civilian National Security Force - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tt2yGzHfy7s

An online petition has been launched and backed by singer John Legend, soccer star Megan Rapinoe and actresses Natalie Portman and Jane Fonda, among others, to defund police departments across the country.

Are these supposed to be thought leaders? Give me a break. I’m really disappointed in Natalie Portman. She has got to be dumb as a rock, and she is a schnorrer, born in Israel, she really should know better.

The Federal Government must keep military equipment from being transferred ownership from Police.
