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?

Crucifix and a statue of the Virgin Mary destroyed in Roman riots.

Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said he “condemned the violence and the fact that a church was desecrated by some protesters who broke in and destroyed some images.” He referred to the clashes in Rome as “horrific.”

The 18th-century church of Santi Marcellino and Pietro is near St John Lateran square where much of Saturday’s violence occurred.
