Pols Realize No One Wants This Job

It only took them one year and a summer full of riots, but blue city mayors are finally figuring out no one wants to be a police officer, and current police officers cannot wait to leave the job.

Following the “defund the police” movement and the “abolish the police” movement, constant negative coverage of law enforcement by the media, anti-police sentiment becoming mainstream, and the threat of riots have contributed to a police shortage across the country.

Hmm, I wonder why that is?

The Philadelphia Police Department currently has 268 vacancies and is expecting even more shortages in the near future.

“From Jan. 1 through Thursday, 79 Philadelphia officers have been accepted into the city’s Deferred Retirement Option Program, meaning they intend to retire within four years, according to Mayor Jim Kenney’s office,” the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. “During the same time period last year, just 13 officers had been accepted into the program, the office said.”

What the article doesn’t mention is Philadelphia has a hiring freeze until 2023. This was done to appease the F**k the Police crowd. Kenney knows full well why we’re understaffed, and the reason is looking at him in the mirror.

Neighboring New Jersey is facing a “recruiting crisis,” according to Pat Colligan, president of the New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association.

Colligan said that recent notorious police-involved deaths of citizens such as George Floyd, Tamir Rice, and Breonna Taylor have impacted recruiting efforts.

Ya think? Blue cities and states are eliminating qualified immunity, politicians are not giving officers the equipment and support they need, and cops are more reviled than the thugs who walk the streets.

Personally, I hope everyone steers clear of policing, especially in blue states. These people hate you, and they will prove it if and when you make a mistake.

  1. I can see policing possibly going in one of two differenr directions in Blue Cities and Blue States; either corrupt criminal gangs like the Ramparts Division of the LAPD, or corrupt political gangs like the SA, beholden to the political machine like the current lickspittle Democrat Fellating FBI.

    Maybe a combination of both dependent on location.

    The recent Western Civilization Ideal of honest, fair, unbiased policing is dead. Empty Headed Liberalism has killed it.

    Hopefully it will survive as a remnant in some of the outstate areas of states.

  2. Ronni – Yeah, I am looking forward to heading south and living in a conservative state for a change. I am so sick of Pennsylvania.

    RD – Obama wanted civilian volunteers, which would have morphed into the SA/SS eventually. Antifa with more guns.

    1. It is interesting the differences in states. Two of my good friends are in law enforcement here. Bryce Schmidt is chief deputy at the Scott County Jail and Brent Kilburg is sheriff for Jackson County (neighboring county). And, yes, I do like me some law and order!!

      1. There are 900+ people on the DROP list, and others are just walking into police HQ and quitting. We used to be a 6,000 person department. In a year or so, we’ll be down to under 5,000. Eventually, Philly will be as violent as Chicago and Baltimore.

  3. Gee I wonder if we can use a well-regulated militia as a source of protection and safety if there are no real cops left just the Diego’s
