Which will go somewhere, but not back to taxpayers.
Whole thing is a slush fund grab.
I was walking the streets of Philly yesterday.
Luckily Im a White male that looks like a cop...
Wu hu! Pay raises for city employees! Who haven’t worked for what?, three months?
Why stop at $33 million. Defund it completely and let the decent people of Philadelphia rout the scum.
These inane virtue signaling moves may be illegal due to state’s constitutions. In many places money that comes from taxes can’t be shuffled around at will without the state Legislatures and Senate. May even have to go to the voters in referendums.
I assume this extra money will be returned to the taxpayers.:) not
How are they going to threaten voters that if voters don’t pass a tax levy, they will take money away from the police.
Why are all these cities cutting police budgets when it was just one cop in one city that was at fault? And he’s in jail.
What does that have to do with cops in NYC, Chicago, Philly or LA?
That is a very broad brush they are using, essentially saying all cops are bad........................
So, how many Philadelphia blacks will die from increased crime because of this $33 million virtue signal?
DEFUND SOCIALIST BUREAUCRACY
Sane people will then fund the “Thin Blue Line”.
