Defunding the police has consequences.
A Nevada sheriff is making headlines after he told the local library system NOT to call 911 after they publicly issued support for Black Lives Matter.
The BLM movement has famously called to defund the police.
In radical instances, some members have called for the total abolition of police departments. Others are calling for reparations for slavery.
In a public letter to the library, Douglas County Sherriff Dan Coverly wrote:
Due to your support of Black Lives Matter and the obvious lack of support or trust with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, please do not feel the need to call 911 for help.
I wish you good luck with disturbances and lewd behavior, since those are just some of the recent calls my office has assisted you with in the past.
Actions have consequences.
Supporting a movement that undermines law and order will have serious ramifications for communities.
