Decoding the phrase “Defund the Police”

Many people fail to realize that the main purpose of any police force is to serve and protect THE GOVERNMENT.

That’s one reason large swaths of real estate and businesses, along with a good number of unfortunate people, were left open to looting, pillaging and other violence, during the recent riots.

The police were simply not trained or equipped to protect both the government and the people.

The priorities of the police were clear.
So, guess who lost out?

Defunding the police would leave the government undefended
and subject to violent overthrow.

What did you THINK they meant?
