Because black lives matter not only should we fund the police but increase funding as a whole. For those who are impacted most by a lack of police work are those in our inner cities and truthfully a great deal of those individuals happen to be African American. Defunding the police means more carnage in our streets as the 1980’s in NYC will attest to. Whether it be an increase of those dealing death in heroin and crack or peddlers or gangs that grow by acts of violence the lack of police only spells -d-e-a-t-h. Yes, some of those monies can be used to develop better training of our police so they work better with the communities they serve and enforce the law instead of try to make it. Yet in the end Black Lives matter and must be protected by those wearing the blue with honor and pride.
FOOTNOTE- Truly all live matters no matter what the color one wears.
