This may come as a surprise to all of you, but the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is suffering from a historic shortage of cops. Apparently, no one in their right mind wants to be a police officer. Can you imagine?
Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro met with Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw, along with area police chiefs, on Tuesday to discuss an ongoing problem: a historic shortage of police officers.
“The fact is, and we see this, fewer young people are deciding to make law enforcement their career,” Shapiro said. “That’s a problem. And it’s going to lead to long-term negative consequences in our communities.”
Hmm, I wonder why that is? Maybe it’s because Democrat politicians like Shapiro spent the Saint George Floyd riots telling anyone and everyone to defund the police. Maybe it’s because people like Danielle Outlaw spends her time trying to get cops fired and/or suspended. Maybe it’s because drunken Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney and Soros-appointed D.A. Larry Krasner are not allowing officers to do their job.
But hey, what do I know?
