The Department of Justice on Monday declared New York City, Seattle, and Portland, Oregon, as "anarchist jurisdictions" in the first move to rescind their federal funding, The Washington Times reports.
President Donald Trump issued a memo earlier this month asking the DOJ to determine jurisdictions that it thought were not properly enforcing the law, as he repeatedly criticized cities led by Democrats for their response to the ongoing protests.
Attorney General William Barr said in a statement that the cities "have permitted violence and destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities."
Barr continued: "When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest."

Black robed thugs will overturn that decision in a heart beat.
Will this be the next sanctuary city style letdown for us?
Openly defying the law and refusing to carry out their sworn duty to protect the people they serve?
Just a court decision away from sinking our hopes again.
And, nothing will happen for 30 days while some department looks this over and decides what to defund, if anything.
That’s what the rest of the statement says.
Good thing we never gave those robed goons any money to play with.
Anarchy does, anarchy is.
The first notification should be to the mayor when the city treasurer came running with the news “we didn’t get the check
whadda we gonna do?”
My opinion is that they would like cities to comply with the law without having to take drastic measures so this might count as a warning.
