Defund The Police Party Vows To Investigate Capital Police Response

Sure, not every elected Democratic Party federal official was/is for defunding the police. Most of them just kept their mouths shut to make sure no one knew what they really believed. Most of them did take the side of the violent BLM/Antifa folks. And wanted all sorts of hardcore reforms on police officers. When stuff was happening Over There. But, since Crazy happened in D.C.? Now they want better from the police in a crazy situation

Lawmakers vow to investigate police after Capitol breach

Lawmakers are vowing an investigation into how law enforcement handled Wednesday’s violent breach at the Capitol, questioning whether a lack of preparedness allowed a mob to occupy and vandalize the building.

U.S. Capitol Police, who are charged with protecting Congress, turned to other law enforcement for help with the mob that overwhelmed the complex and sent lawmakers into hiding. Both law enforcement and Trump supporters deployed chemical irritants during the hourslong occupation of the complex before it was cleared Wednesday evening. (snip)

Police said 52 people were arrested as of Wednesday night, including 26 on the Capitol grounds. Fourteen police officers were injured, Contee said.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., chairwoman of the House Administration Committee, said the breach “raises grave security concerns,″ adding that her committee will work with House and Senate leaders to review the police response — and its preparedness.

Lofgren was hardcore on all sorts of police “reform” bills (because she thinks all cops are racists), but, also voted for one granting more money for hiring officers, to be fair. But, she previously blasted officers in Portland, the ones who were getting assaulted and having the federal courthouse firebombed, reposting a Vice story about “people being kidnapped off the streets.” You know, arrested for criminal activity.

Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., a former police chief, said it was “painfully obvious” that Capitol police “were not prepared for today. I certainly thought that we would have had a stronger show of force, that there would have been steps taken in the very beginning to make sure that there was a designated area for the protesters in a safe distance from the Capitol.”

Why? It was mostly peaceful. Demings had ties to the BLM/Antifa nutters, and ties to lots of defund the police wackos, before changing her tune for political expediency. Maybe as a former chief she does care. She stood with the people who wanted to do that.

Rep. Karen Bass, D-Calif., said she was outraged to see accounts on social media of a Capitol Police officer posing for a photo with a protester. “Would you take a selfie with someone who was robbing a bank?” she asked. “I can’t imagine if a couple of thousand of (Black Lives Matters) protesters had descended on the Capitol … that there would be 13 people arrested.”

Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, suggested there could be leadership changes at the Capitol police.

I can’t find anywhere where Bass was outraged about so many local police departments being stood down while BLM/Antifa riots raged in their cities. Nor about the few who were arrested being released right away and never prosecuted. And, Bass is not a big fan of the term “defund the police”, just what it stands for by a different name. Ryan isn’t much better.

I suggest we disarm all the cops in D.C. Every branch, from the Capital Police to Sheriffs to Washington Metro to Secret Service. Especially the ones who protect Congress. Because Dems want to disarm citizens. And cut the number of those protecting congress by half. Because that’s what Dems want…..what? Oh, only for Other People? Huh.
