More than 100 law enforcement agencies have reportedly pulled out of security agreements to send personnel to help with security at the Democratic National Convention next month in part because they are concerned about recent efforts to limit law enforcement’s use of tear gas and pepper spray in responding to violent riots.
Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales was ordered last month to change the department’s policies to ban the use of tear gas and pepper spray.
In Wisconsin, Franklin Police Chief Rick Oliva said, “It is apparent there is a lack of commitment to provide the Milwaukee Police Department with the resources it needs to ensure the safety of peaceful protesters, attendees, citizens and police personnel. I can not send personnel if they are not properly equipped or will not be allowed to engage in appropriate actions which would ensure their safety.”
How are those night classes coming? We’d been assured that night classes would reduce violence on the streets.
They should just make it a gun free zone. Then they won't have to worry about anyone bringing guns!

No need for police… only peaceful folks around. What are you worried about?

Mostly peaceful folks.
Gee I wonder why? Sure wouldn't mind seeing these "protesters" turn their attention to the DNC Convention. Wonder if they'd be so quick to want to defund the police then???

Just waiting for the convention to be cancelled now due to “COVID concerns”

Not to worry. Social workers are on standby.

Walls of moms.
Walls of moms.

Maybe the wall of Antifa “Moms” is free.

Tickles me to hear this! Move it from Milwaukee to Portland, let those punks guard.

I hear CHAZ has a security team that is available

No need for the police! The peaceful protesters will protect them!
What could possibly go wrong?

They made their bed.
Time to sleep in it.
All the rioting denials now come home to roost.

Glad law enforcement is doing that. Let the DNC hire private security. Although … it does give the DNC an excuse to not have Joe, live, in front of the country.

Perfect. Here's their chance to show how to create a beautiful community without evil police people. Can't wait to see it in action.

I guess the social workers are going to be swimming in money and overtime. 👍

They'll be okay, just make sure there's plenty of bread on hand.

Maybe they'll have to ask federal agents to guard them.
That would be priceless.

That's their own doing… they should be responsible for their own security if they're calling to defund the police and bash them at every stop along the way..

As long as it is nowhere near a federal courthouse they should be safe.

They should not deploy any police. It will be a great autumn of love party.

Breaking: Wall of Moms will provide security.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer party.

Now that's poetic justice

It’ll probably end up being a “virtual” convention anyway, but it would be great if they really did go through with it.
Portland city commissioner believes it’s the police who are ‘sending saboteurs and provocateurs into peaceful crowds’ https://t.co/zwPU3GDVRn
