to let Lefty Hell-holes have what they say they want–good and hard. So yes, they should go ahead and defund the police and do reparations (heck, they should double the reparations!).
Truly, I hope ALL Lefty Hell-holes adopt these policies!
The time for cheap virtue signaling is over. It is long past time for Democrats to pay up, and San Francisco voters should learn a harsh lesson about what kind of government they keep voting for. As H.L. Mencken once said, “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”
… Mission accomplished! The headcount of police officers in San Francisco is down sharply the last three years, and recruitment for new officers is abysmal. Gooder and harder.
