Delusional South Carolina Senator Tim Scott is butt-hurt that his leftist buddies refuse to work on a ridiculous and dangerous police reform bill without a waiver to defund police departments across the country. It’s hilarious this clown wants to reach across the aisle after the Democrats called him a racist and “Uncle Tim.”
South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott believes that after months of negotiations on a police reform bill, talks broke down because Democratic politicians wanted to cut funding to law enforcement departments.
Scott told CBS’s “Face the Nation” over the weekend, “We said simply this, ‘I’m not going to participate in reducing funding for the police after we saw a major city after major city defund the police.’
For the one thousandth time, I fully support this! The irony here is almost every big blue city police department in America started defunding their police departments last fall. Philadelphia has 1,000 officers in the Injured on Duty (IOD) list. Another 1,000 officers are on the early retirement list. Younger officers are simply quitting and looking for other careers. Our current police academy class has forty-two cadets, with no new classes entering any time soon.
Momentum surrounding legislation that would reform U.S. police departments picked up following the May 2020 killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis by a police officer. Intertwined in discussions of police department reforms are typically proponents of “defund the police,” who argue that the government should spend less money on law enforcement and more on social services.
Again defund us. Please defund us!
Also, Saint George Floyd was a criminal, a junkie, and died of an overdose of fentanyl and methamphetamine. I mean, if you want to call Derek Chaivun a killer, knock yourself out, but he didn’t murder Georgie. Georgie murdered Georgie.
Scott and New Jersey Democratic Sen Cory Booker have been working for months with Rep. Karen Bass, D-Calif., on a reform bill. Bu lawmakers last week told reporters that discussions had stalled.
“We were not making progress. In fact … we we’re actually moving away from it,” Booker said.
That is by far the best outcome in my opinion. When you have a RINO SC senator dealing with a race-baiting NJ senator and a racist CA representative, the only “progress” coming from this will be less police officers and more homicides.
