Over 100 Police Agencies Tell Democrats To Get Lost, Are Refusing to Work The Democratic National Convention According To Fox News

If you think that the Democrats’ decision to ‘turn on’ the men and women in blue is not having an effect on the morale of law enforcement, you are dead wrong.  Just listen to the testimony of Rich Walker, a Minneapolis Officer, who says that:

‘“Our morale has never been lower … The hatred for [us] has never been more evident. Right now, it’s Minneapolis. But it’s spreading.”‘

He predicts that 25% of the police force is going to quit over the Democrat induced, or at the very least, endorsed, push to ‘defund the police’ which has put a target on the back of each and every man or woman in uniform.

Fox News is reporting:

‘At least three Wisconsin police agencies are pulling out of security agreements to send personnel to next month’s Democratic National Convention over orders that would prevent officers from using certain crowd control measures during protests.

The Fond du Lac, Franklin and West Allis police departments were part of a collective of outside agencies poised to send 1,000 officers to secure the event, which will run from Aug. 17-20 and where Joe Biden is expected to be named the party’s presidential nominee. The action comes after the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission directed Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales to change department policy to restrict the use of tear gas and pepper spray.

The civilian oversight commission issued the directive last week in response to the use of tear gas on crowds during protests following the death of George Floyd. The event, which will be held at the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee, has been scaled down to a mostly virtual event.

Only around 300 people are expected to attend in person.’

Police Chief of Fond du Lac, William Lamb, explain to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that they are expecting more agencies to withdraw from the event as well.

“We regret having to do that,”  “We respect the Fire and Police Commission’s decision. But in this particular case, we strongly disagree with the actions they’ve taken,‘ the Police Chief stated

“We believe in removing those tools, the use of chemical irritants or pepper spray, from the available resources that the law enforcement officers would have at their disposal if protests become non-peaceful would severely compromise the safety of the public and also the safety of the law enforcement officers who would be assigned to protect the DNC,”  and he is right.
