Police Departments Pulling Out Of DNC

A multitude of police departments have decided to forego the Democratic National Convention after the city of Milwaukee banned tear gas and pepper spray. In short, the 2020 convention is going to be lit!

More than 100 law enforcement agencies have pulled out of security agreements to send personnel to help with security at the Democratic National Convention next month in part because they are concerned about recent efforts to limit law enforcement’s use of tear gas and pepper spray in responding to violent riots.

Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales was ordered last month to change the department’s policies to ban the use of tear gas and pepper spray.

The news comes as violent left-wing riots have rocked multiple cities across the U.S. in the weeks since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Philadelphia hosted the 2016 Democratic National Convention, and we had hundreds of officers from dozens of agencies coming in to help. The convention was already a mess, but without them, it would have been a war zone.

Understand this, a few local departments sending a few officers to Milwaukee will not help control the rioters. It will be a disaster, and Milwaukeee police officers will suffer because of this idiotic ban.

  1. I’m not thrilled with a lot of things the police do. Stocking up on military-looking vehicles, civil asset forfeiture, etc. But despite all the problems I’ve ever had with them, I never said, “we should get rid of the police.” One can think the police go too far and also think the idea of having police is a good idea.

    Not the left.

    There’s a line I’ve always remembered from an episode of The Sopranos. The crew is beefing with some rivals, probably the New York crew under Johnny Sack, and Chris Moltisante complains, “They ‘crap’ all over our heads and we’re supposed to say ‘thanks for the hat.'”

    I think the police all over the country have stopped saying “Thanks for the hat.” I think the blue is still the toughest gang on the street, and they’re about to teach the country a lesson about what it looks like when they’re not in the picture.

    New York, Chicago, they’re all used to dozens getting shot and dying over a weekend. The country is, too. Most of us in the flyover states have written those cities off. But Minneapolis is not used to children getting killed by stray bullets. It’ll take a few bodies falling before they realize that’s what life looks like without the cops around, and they’ll come crawling back.

    I honestly hope the cops in those cities make the politicians thank them for the hat before going back to business.

  2. Proof – The man is a disaster, so I figured he’d be incognito anyway. I just didn’t think the Dems would want to lose all that attention.

    Veeshir – Would that big a loss? It’s the home to Laverne & Shirley, the Brewers, and… yeah, I got nothin’.

    TX Nick – It’s a mess of their own making. I will not shed one tear.

    Mitch – The homicide count here – as of yesterday – was 245. That’s 32% higher than this time last year. After firings and arrests of a few cops here during the riots – as the rioters were released with no charges – the department has shut down.

    Today was a very hot, very humid day, and I think we had a total of four active jobs. On a day like this, my division would get four times that – at least – in an eight-hour shift. The city is collapsing, and no one wants to do the job, because they know the mayor, commissioner, and DA will fire them for the slightest mistake.

  3. I’ve heard rumors that the DNC will be seeking extra security from many of the same cities and their Department of Social Services. Send in the social workers!

  4. Veeshir – Shotz. LOL, that was such a great beer name.

    Mitch – Normally I would frown upon this, but after seeing what is happening to my department, my give o’ shite meter is on empty.

    RG – What could possibly go wrong?

  5. It’s high time the dems got a dose of reality. They get so darn offended when the police do their jobs and stand there and preach day and night about the “peaceful” demonstrations, let them get right in the middle of a true firestorm and see how they handle it without the protection they count on each day whether they admit it or not.

  6. The Demz remind me of an abusive person that can’t understand why the target of their abuse suddenly leaves & refuses to come back.

  7. Ronni – Never happen. It’s like when Andrea Mitchell was walking with a congresscritter and a crazy tranny rushed up to them. Mitchell responds, “Where’s a cop when you need one?”

    We’re a block away laughing at your misfortune.

    MelP – There are 700 people in my department who have signed up for early retirement. I saw the list. It’s massive. And with the defunding, they can’t afford to put new academy classes in.

    1. And to be more clear, there are not 5,000 officers on the street. many officers work inside cell rooms, district operations rooms, captain’s officers and at Police HQ. We have twenty police districts with maybe fifteen or so officers on the street during each of the three shifts.

      There are also tactical teams and such, but losing 700 officers is debilitating.
