He finally opened his eyes.
According to CNS News, Rep. Jim Clyburn slammed the defund the police movement stating “nobody is going to defund the police.”
“I would simply say, as I have always said, nobody is going to defund the police,” Clyburn said.
He added, “We can restructure the police forces, restructure, reimagine policing. That is what we are going to do. The fact of the matter is, the police have a role to play. What we have got to do is make sure that their role is one that meets the times, one that responds to these communities that they operate in.”
Clyburn continued, “I didn’t grow up in fear of police, even in a segregated environment. We never feared the police. But, all of a sudden, now I do fear the police. The young blacks fear the police.”
He said, “So, I wouldn’t say defund. Deconstruct our policing.” You can read the full article here.
