Members of the progressive Democrat group “The Squad” have proposed their own bill to defund the police. Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley announced “The Breathe Act” Tuesday with other Black Lives Matter activists and called it a new version of public safety.

The bill outlines a “time bound” plan to dismantle policing and incarceration. It aims to do so by slashing police funds, which will be reallocated for health, education and environmental housing plans.

It would also divert funds to community and social programs.

The proposal also seeks to eliminate certain federal programs, which have been used to fund immigration enforcement and send surplus military equipment to local law enforcement.

“The Breathe Act outlines a vision that truly defends black lives,” stated Professor Marc Lamont Hill. “It invests in communities where black and marginalized communities can thrive, where they can be free, where they can breathe.”

The bill has not yet been formally introduced, but the progressive proposal is likely to face GOP opposition.

I can't imagine a country with defunded police. We will end up being a country with no law and order because we know man has a sinful nature and crime will go up. People will have to take the law into their own hands for protection and that will not end well.
Bingo! This is why gun sales are higher than they’ve ever been. Thank God we still have that right...for now!

Rep. Jeff Van Drew on left-wing Breathe Act: This is why I left the Democratic Party

'Squad' members' wide-ranging proposal would defund police

Reacting to the House Democrats “Breathe Act,” Republican Rep. Jeff Van Drew, who recently left the Democratic Party due to his opposition to impeachment, said on Thursday that the bill is an example of what drove him away from the party.

“This is why I left. I couldn’t do it anymore,” Van Drew told “Fox & Friends.”

“They are lurching to the left, they are redefining America in a bad way," Van Drew said after winning the New Jersey GOP primary.

Two congressional "squad" members unveiled a wide-ranging proposal Tuesday to defund police departments and establish a reparations program for African Americans and people harmed by the police and the criminal justice system.

Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, both Democrats, announced the Breathe Act via a virtual conference call. Both lawmakers are part of the four-member "squad," a group of female progressive House members that includes Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and ‎Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

“We can start to envision through this bill a new version for public safety – a new vision for public safety, one that protects and affirms Black lives,” Tlaib said, according to the New York Post.

Van Drew said that the Democratic Party is not the same as when he started out in politics.

“The real bottom line is going to be, are we going to be a strong America with a strong military, with a strong education, with strong production, with strong manufacturing? Are we going to be the America that we know and love and even want to attain more and do more and be better?” Van Drew said.

“Or, are we going to be an America that, in essence, is going to fall apart, become weak, become dependent on others? We need a real supply chain .... This is not the party of your parents, it’s not the party even that I started. This is a much different Democratic Party.”

Police are local employees. The federal government shouldn't have jurisdiction.
From things the left have been saying they intend on scrapping our whole system, law enforcement, economic, political, and they haven’t said it in words but no doubt they also intend on scrapping the constitution which they consider racist too, that would place the country under the leadership of one dictator. Without states run by Governors or local leaders. That leaves no jurisdictions and no boundaries .Its a scary thought but considering where we are in these end times it really isn’t surprising. Thank God for His mercy and love and our salvation through Jesus Christ.

I believe history has already shown us what replacing real police officers with political "police" or what the Communist-Democrats are referring to as "social police" looks like ~ they were called the Gestapo in Nazi Germany. :furious There should be a call to defund any elected official who supports anarchy, violence, looting, rioting, murdering, and all the criminal activity going on in these Communist-Democrat run cities and states. A good place to start would be defunding the salaries of the Goon Squad and their supporters like Pelosi, Schumer, Schiffty, et al.

Seattle is trying to defund their police. They also passed a bill to tax businesses that pay good salaries. Kshama Sawant, the annoying socialist on the council, was mocking Jeff Bezos of Amazon. She said she can't wait til they wipe out capitalism and install socialism. Funny how Seattle seems to be trying to commit suicide. If the businesses relocate to friendlier environments, the economy may crash and burn.

The Marxist left is making a huge mess out of this country. A dangerous mess. Sad thing is that they’ve been grooming our kids in schools for years now to prepare for this but nobody could see the damage that was being done. Now we have all of these millennials indoctrinated with socialist ideology and they are convinced that their way of thinking is the right way. What should’ve been done long time ago was to shutdown all of those Universities that were poisoning the minds of future America
