From the dog-eared “you just can’t make this stuff up” file we find a TikTok video that shows a police officer explaining why he was assigned to work at a “defund the police” protest that day, and it’s 2020 in a nutshell:
“They requested a police presence, you know, for their safety at the ‘defund the police’ event.”
