Cities in parts of the U.S. that slashed their police department funding last year, in part as a result of police-involved shootings, have seen an uptick in certain crimes over the past year, according to data analyzed by Fox News. Cities such as Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Portland, Ore., and Austin, Texas, have shifted funds from police departments to social services programs. Such cuts have led some departments to lay off officers, cancel recruiting classes or retreat from hiring goals.

Nothing in recent memory could have been more stupid than defunding the police! Perhaps voting for Biden is as equally stupid but that is another discussion! Any politician or individual who advocated for this incredibly insane idea, is unhinged and disconnected from reality! Treat them accordingly!

Seemed to me from the start of the demented "defund the police" movement, that getting crime rates to soar was precisely the intent behind the campaign.

When the Residents (who voted for this great idea) have had enough Rape, Robbery, Murder and maybe even Home Invasions in their own communities, they will beg for MORE police. THAT'S When the Police demand a RAISE! Having to go and get rid of the Vermin running wild, those Officers deserve the same pay as those who go into High Risk Areas!

About 20 years ago, there was a renaissance in East Austin. That is the historically black part of town. It became a very trendy area, where people would go to eat and shop. It was a boom for their economy. It was pretty interesting to see how what was once a run down "ghetto" could become a thriving part of town again. But once the police were defunded, and BLM and Antifa were allowed to attack white people with impunity, I wouldn't get caught dead in that part of town now (mainly because I fear the "dead" part of that sentence). The last thing any part of any city needed during the economic hit of the pandemic over-reaction by our city government was for them to defund the police and give the criminals and racist BLM and Antifa thugs carte blanche to riot and destroy!!! But with an uber-lie-beral city government like Austin, what else could you expect?!?!?!?!?

Let me think this through. Less police. The ones that are left are subject to being charged with MURDER. The ones that don't get charged may after 15 years of their lives on the job may find themselves and their families unemployed without a pension. CALL 911

They don't have to defund the police - keep charging them with murder after some punk pulls a gun and gets shot, and the smart ones will retire or move to more police-friendly venues (if they can). The rest will go for desk duty, close their eyes to crimes in progress, keep their heads down, their guns holstered, and hide out until they can move on one way or another.

FTA:Total violent crime in Minneapolis between July 22, 2020, and March 28 was also up 22% year-over-year – 3,692 this year compared to the 3,025 last year And it's worth noting that many liberals are refusing to report crimes to the police because they fear being 'unwoke'. So the number of crimes is actually much higher.

X-energy, of Rockville, Maryland, will work with Energy Northwest of Richland and Grant County PUD to develop, build and operate an 80-megawatt reactor, the Xe-100, on land already leased by Energy Northwest at the Hanford nuclear reservation in Eastern Washington. Advanced reactors are intended to be designed with enhanced safety features and a smaller footprint for their modular design concept. Their smaller size and ability to quickly ramp up and down makes them a perfect complement to intermittent renewable resources CORRECTIONS*

Manchin is the only Democratic senator not co-sponsoring the For the People Act, which Democrats say can only pass if filibuster rules change. "I’m insulted when he tells me that it’s more important to maintain a relationship with the minority in the U.S. Senate than it is for you to maintain a relationship with the minority of voters in America," Clyburn told The Huffington Post.

WASHINGTON — As President Joe Biden preaches patience but acts with urgency, his vision of the powers of the Oval Office is quickly taking shape, modeled after Democratic predecessors who dramatically expanded the reach of government to confront generational crises. In a recent meeting with historians and in private conversations with advisers, Biden looked to the examples set by Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson as he aims to use the levers of executive authority to create opportunities and break down barriers. Unlike Roosevelt and Johnson, who enjoyed formidable Democratic majorities in Congress, Biden has had to operate with a no-margin-for-error edge in fiercely partisan Washington.CORRECTION*
