Republicans effectively labeled some Democrats as police “defunders” during the 2020 elections, even though most mainstream candidates — including President Joe Biden — never embraced the movement pushed by party progressives.

Democrats want to avoid similar pitfalls in 2021 as crime continues to surge. Last month, the FBI reported murders rose nearly 30% in 2020, while violent crime overall went up for the first time in four years.

That trend has not abated in cities like Atlanta, where homicides have risen more than 60% since 2019.

A Pew Research Center poll released this week found 47% of Americans want to see police spending increase, up from 31% in June 2020. Only 15% said funding should be reduced, down from 25% last year.

Polls show Black voters — who are more likely to be victims of crime and live in neighborhoods with high crime rates — are particularly opposed to cutting funding.

  1. But yet DeBlasio wants to fire a third of the entire NYPD force over some illegal vaccine mandate.

DeBlasio is a present danger and must be removed/impeached from office.
