Cities Who Defund The Police Will Experience Economic Collapse After Truckers Vow To Stop Delivering Freight According To CDLLife [Opinion]

By

According to CDLLife.com, which is apparently the bible for over the road truckers, seventy-seven percent of truck drivers say they will refuse to deliver freight to cities with defunded police departments.”

(CDLLife.com) Truck driving is historically ranked as one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. In 2018, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic reported truck driving as the most deadly job in the country. 

Truck drivers have spent the last year on the front line of a global pandemic and protests. Now many are fearful of what might happen if police departments disband or are defunded. 

Truck drivers have been voicing their concerns on the CDLLife App. After reading about their concerns, CDLLife posted a poll on the app.

We asked drivers on the app, “Would you pick up/deliver to cities with defunded or disbanded police departments? Why or why not?” 

As of June 13, 2020, we’ve had over 1,283 respondents and 79% say they will refuse loads to cities with disbanded or defunded police departments.

“This is not an area you need to act fearless and think you’d look like a fool for saying no…Imagine what kind of fool you look like for driving into a hotspot and putting your life in danger.” – Anonymous Respondent

Truckers have been putting themselves at risk of contracting the CCP virus in order to deliver food stocks and other necessities to their fellow Americans while the rest of our citizens were ordered into lockdown.  Thank God for their courage…

(This Too Shall Pass) Thankfully as a nation this crisis is causing us to reevaluate our priorities: faith, family, community and freedom; and seeing the easy dispatch of liberty also reignites that oft forgotten flickering flame…

Journalists are less important than janitors. Our nation’s best athletes are healthcare workers rushing to assist those in need.  The true heroes are not celebrities, but rather farmers, truck drivers, stock clerks, and supermarket cashiers.

The most valuable businesses do not glitter or present themselves with self-congratulatory award shows; they do today what they have always done to keep our food supply flowing.  Perhaps now, at least for a few short weeks, we stop taking them for granted.
