(Jun. 7, 2021) — All my life I have believed that all people have a right to their opinions and the right to express them without being punished for it. There is an opinion now being embraced by many people in this country, including Senators, Representatives, mayors and governors, causing me to no longer hold to that belief because of their actions to express it. Actions are expressions, the same as words.
Any person who is in favor of, and working toward, “de-funding” our police forces should be “deported” from this country. Why do I think this? First, it falls under the definition of treason (the crime of betraying one’s country). Second, a nation without laws is a nation of tyranny (“a nation under cruel and oppressive government; cruel, unreasonable, or arbitrary use of power or control.”) A nation without law enforcers is a nation in which murder, rape, and robbery run rampant. Laws are of no value whatsoever without someone to enforce them.
Every city, county and state in the United States of America should not be “defunding” our law enforcers, BUT ISSUING SUBSTANTIAL PAY INCREASES TO THEM!!
