New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman has been an outspoken proponent of defunding the police:
We're fighting in your memory, Tamir. You won't be forgotten.
A system this cruel and inhumane can't be reformed. Defund the police, and defund the system that's terrorizing our communities. https://t.co/OwFg32pbZ3

All this backlash to "Defund The Police?" How fast are people gonna fold when we get serious about reparations?

However, apparently the police should remain funded just enough to provide security for certain members of Congress:

“Police protection for me but none for thee” seems to be the credo for many Democrats.

From the New York Post:
Freshman U.S. Rep. Jamaal Bowman — a champion of defunding cops who claims policing is rife with “white supremacy” — asked for and received a special police detail to guard his Yonkers home in the days following the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill insurrection, The Post has learned.
“About a week after the Jan. 6th incident at the Capitol, we received a request from the Congressman’s office for increased police presence at his residence,” Yonkers Police Department Detective Lt. Dean Politopoulos told The Post.
Shouldn’t a slightly different profession been called in?
Oh? He didn't request some social workers? https://t.co/Vg7O8P8B1s

“Lead by example” doesn’t seem to be in the cards for some on the Left with this issue.
Protect me but not my voters. Great direction we are heading

Yet still they want to defund police in poor neighborhoods!

Broke: Defund the police
Woke: Repurpose the police into personal security details. https://t.co/CppJ3lXDhW

It’s the same thing with anti-gun Democrats. You shouldn’t have one for your protection, but their personal security details sure can.
