The Democrats Who Cried Wolf

Democrats Cry Wolf

Once there were Democrats who, distraught at losing a presidential election, had to convince voters they knew better than them. Immediately, feeling superior to the commoners of the United States, they took it upon themselves to play a trick on the good people over whom they lorded. They shouted, “Collusion! See here! Collusion!” The commoners rushed to the cries of collusion, opening their newspapers and turning on their CNNs posthaste. With their gazes intent, they asked: “Where is the collusion?” A reply came that dossiers, reports, and verifiable proof were imminent. The people grew weary, as this lasted for two years, but being obedient and docile liberals, they hung onto each potential bombshell from the experts and authorities in the media. The Democrats

Is It Easier Than We Think to End Deadly Use of Force?

Police Interactions

We met up with a former public school teacher, who relayed his experience working with kids. The conversation went as follows: I expected to encounter misbehavior - innocuous, intentional, or otherwise. In our follow-up conversations, students often admitted to feeling isolated or called out by authority figures.

They are only noticed when something goes wrong; otherwise, we take their services for granted. Those services, by the way, are compensated at a national average of just $67,000. But they show up every day ready to put their lives on the line for us. Below is a list of the top-10 highest-paying states for police officers: California average police officer salary: $105,220 Alaska average police officer salary: $87,870 New Jersey average police

The Lie of Disbanding Police in Camden, N.J.

Defund Police

Disbanding police departments works! This is the claim by liberal news organizations touting the positive effect of "re-imagined" policing in Camden, NJ, that resulted in a 60% reduction in homicides and a 42% reduction in overall violent crime between 2011 and 2019. In the aftermath of George Floyd's death, while in the custody of Minneapolis police, Black Lives Matters, ANTIFA, democrat politicians, and most of the mainstream media are pushing for police reform. The measures they're proposing include defunding, disarming, disbanding, and modifying racial make-up of officers.  All eyes are on Camden, New Jersey as the model to emulate for improving policing across the country. What did Camden, New Jersey, do that made them a success? Did they follow the
