  • Its incredible that people actually listen to these people that have nothing really to say.Its incredible how they have managed to talk for decades without having literally anything to say,no expertize,no knowledge of any serious kind.I mean they have to talk with outrage and emotion and gargabe tantrums because they just have to say something for x amount of minutes and all the "talking" they do has to be in form and content about how they are actually saying something when they are not,hence the braindead like talking they perform.And not just these non existences,but also literally all,all of discusions on tv,including political debates.Lincoln and his contemporaries had 6 hour long debates in a single city,people used to go home for a break,eat,and then come back.Now its just 2 min soundbites and 2 min is actually a lot,its more like 10 second slogans.How can you have a serious discusion among tampon commercials and car adverts?"Whats your opinion on nuclear disarmamanet?You have 2 min by the way".What can you say during that time?Why do we allow ourselves to give creedence to this kind of disease?

  • Isn't reallocation of funding away, key word AWAY, from police resources into community services effectively just stating the same thing as defunding the police? Isn't any retraction of funding for use in other alternative programs just defunding of the original program? BLM have stated outright their intentions are to defund the police.

  • Joy...this 1 house in a poor black community is on fire, while the others aren't...yet someone in one of those houses not on fire set the single house on fire? Best explanation I heard of BLM was from a black guy, who said they don't care about all black lives, just the OCBLM, Only Certain Black Lives Matter, the ones they can use for their agenda, unlike Joy's analogy which has nothing to do with defunding the police, imagine a hospital run by BLM, your a black guy you get in a car wreck, you split your head open, you break a couple ribs and you stub your pinky toe, BLM shows up and puts ice on your pinky toe and leaves you with your possible concussion and several cracked ribs You could die from the head wound, or a rib puncturing your lung...but they can use pinky toe as a talking point to loot and then burn down other "nicer" hospitals.

  • "Donald Trump: Minorities Suffer the Most from Weaker Policing" 15 Sept 2020 President Donald Trump argued Tuesday that minority Americans suffer the most from reduced policing. “They want more police, they want protection, they suffer more than anybody else by bad police protection,” Trump said. The president discussed issues of race during an ABC News town hall on Tuesday 15 Sept 2020 with moderator George Stephanopolous. Trump cited a poll showing that 81% of black Americans wanted the same level or more police in their communities. “All minorities, Hispanic or Black or Asian, they suffer more than anybody else, George,” Trump said. “We have to give the police back the authority to stop crime.” The president disputed the idea that there was systemic racism in the United States. “I think there’s problems, but I think there’s some very big problems where if you don’t believe police and back their authority,” he said. One voter told Trump that America had never been great for African-Americans who were still stuck in the ghettos and suffered from racism. “I hope there’s not a race problem,” Trump replied. “I can tell you, there’s none with me, because I have great respect for all races, for everybody. this country is great because of it.”

  • At present America got more than 1 million prisoners. Would you agree that 1/3 of the inmates were imprison because their brain is prone to crime? If you agree then we need policemen to protect us from criminal minded people. In 7 counties of California, Elizabeth Macdonald reports that 25 thousand criminal illegl aliens are being located in those counties. Scary, what if they rape or kill any member of your family.

  • George Floyd family should be awarded 20 million dollars for wrongful death of George Floyd on the hands of the police. In California, black Jamal due wrong conviction under Kamala Harris, was awarded 13.1 million dollars for 6 1/2 years in jail. Congress should enact and fund such a program to alleviate the stigma of those problem. The cost to government in terms of revenue due to burning and looting justifies such awards to be given to families of victims.

  • Defund means prevent from continuing to receive funds. So let me get this straight, these idiots on the View say it does not mean disband the police but if defund means to prevent funds from paying you think they will work for free?? Prevent from continuing to receive funds um that means no police. What stupid people would buy into this

  • The G0Pers are the main ones making "defunding" a dirty word. 🙄 Maybe they should have stayed in those "liberal" schools to learn something. Such uneducated Crybabies most of them are! I read this online, and it pretty much sums it up, but they won't even understand this: "Defund the police” means reallocating or redirecting funding away from the police department to other government agencies funded by the local municipality. That’s it. It’s that simple. Defund does not mean abolish "

  • It's all because different racial and intelligence segments within the US cant understand the concept of being responsible for your actions. This could all be solved by: Dont break the law Dont have warrants Dont resist arrest. Its so much easier to just blame someone... in this case, the police. and shove your statistical anomalies.

  • "Defund the police" is as radical as it sounds. And Kamala Harris will pander to leftist to accomplish this goal. The proponents of it (BLM/Antifa) are simply soft-selling their ultimate goal, which is really to abolish the police. And, they are lying about their true hatred of police officers. We know that they hate police officers and want to kill them, because it's constantly repeated in their marches. They can lie all they want, but the reality is that they are full of hate concerning law enforcement officers who stand between the innocent American public and criminals who want to terrorize them, as BLM has done. One example is reflected in "ACAB" which means All Cops are B*stards. And, there are other similar phrases they shout. It is apparent that they want a state of anarchy so they can control the thoughts and words of others through their "cancel culture" of shaming, violence and even death if necessary. We are not fooled. And, the vast majority of Americans totally disagree and hate the violence that BLM/Antifa is causing in our country. This violence is facilitated by the Democratic party and the leftist media. No Christian should ever be involved with BLM, Antifa, Democratic Party, or "woke church". The disregard for God-given authority expressed by these movements is Satanic in origin. Here's a good song regarding this:

  • Sunny broke it down for a kindergartner to understand and as usual someone is going to come along and act as though it means something else. Defunding the police means what she said it means why should they change the term because someone is to lazy to get the understanding. If that was the case we would be changing dictionary terms all the time. Nothing would ever hold its meaning.

  • The Democrats are scared, they're promising everything and anything. They're willing to defund the police, but they're not going to"defund" their salaries". Sign a petition to tax the Senators at 85% of their salary. " EACH senator" makes $174,000 per year X 40 years of service equals = $6,960.000.00" Defunder the senators- make them work as a public servant!

Although they’d like to pretend, this really is sad that they try to cover up and run interference for the radicals that have confirmed that they wanted to “Defund” the Police.

  • To an increasing segment of society defunding the police is utopia and their greatest dream come true. They will be able to deal in drugs ; murder ; rape ; rob ; drive around in stolen cars from richer more affluent neighborhoods. Their only worry is getting back across State lines without getting apprehended. UTOPIA. But the Lord Of Karma is watching. Another name for the Lord is the "JOT" ; Not without good reason.

    Siobhan MurphySiobhan MurphyMonth ago
  • Whoopi is exactly right. Why can't the police accept their failings and open a dialogue to figure out how to better protect every American? Why does it have to be an Us vs Them battle every time they are criticized for doing something wrong? If there weren't bad police officers doing wrong then we wouldn't even need to have this conversation, but they try to convince us that people are too sensitive or people are just trying to get attention or money. I call BS. The police need to get with the program and stop covering for each other when they do bad things. That's the behavior of a gang of criminals rather than the role models and heroes I was always taught to see them as.

How do you think "Let the police go on without accountability, with internal investigations only, with unions that try to keep the bad ones, let them turn off their cameras if they want to, and let the courts uphold that the police can lie and not only let police into court rooms but take their word for ANYTHING." just to name a few sounds? Whatever your definition of defund is, it has it's merit.

  • Democratic candidate Joe Biden, actually said to the African American community , that if we don't vote for them, then we ain't black. That's the party that has taken us for granted, as if we are somehow beholding to them, for our own lives. This is a party with a slavery past. Check it out for yourselves and you will see the roots of this political party. They're not for us, they simply need our vote. That's where their solidarity ends. The Democratic Party has even put illegal aliens rights and concerns, before African American citizens born in this country. Their party has moved so far to the left, there's no more place to go, but socialism. To the Democratic Party, no lives matter, more than their own selfish ambitions. I'm tired of the leftist propaganda that they disguised as news.

  • I saw the Trump commercial that made it look as if all policing will be shut down, i guess from defunding threats, instead if addressing a refirm needed to be addressed, as at least an option for police departments. Its like, we will not work to defend yiu, if you expect us to adjust to your wants. Did i miss something, ir are they not a public service arm of government, and serve in our interest, not tgeir own. Its like they are willing to hold our safety hostage, unless we capitulate to even their abuses under protection of that badge. Who are the people in charge, citizens who grant them power, or does the power stem from them, and we serve in their will, and not them to ours.

  • I think “Defund the police” originated from the justifiable emotional outrage people felt in the immediate aftermath of George Floyd’s murder. It is meant to word our opposition to police overall & disproportionate unequal mistreatment, beatings, and especially KILLINGS of black people (often brown people, too).Calls for action when a situation results in nation or worldwide protests are by definition provocative (e.g., “Burn your bra.”) I would begin my explanation there. “Reform the police” is weak and easily manipulated. “Demilitarize the police” doesn’t address the outrage over racism. It just takes their torture toys away. I don’t have a good substitute that isn’t a sentence for defund the police. “Reconstitute the police” (?) BLM is really, “BLM, too!” It seems so darn obvious that nobody would even say BLM if they had previously mattered as much as white lives. Changing BLM to cater to stupid racist people is not worth it. They don’t get nuance. If someone retorts with “All lives matter,” I’d respond, “Yes, exactly, that is our point, ours too.”
