Oh well …
I’m glad that I don’t live in one of these places.
“The mass exodus at the Seattle Police Department continues with 66 police officers separating so far this year. By the end of May, that number is expected to hit nearly 100.
There is a police staffing crisis with no end in sight. …”
The exodus — amid the pandemic, anti-cop hostility, riots and a skyrocketing number of NYC shootings — saw 2,600 officers say goodbye to the job and another 2,746 file for retirement, a combined 5,346. …”
“The Philadelphia Police Department currently has 268 vacancies and is expecting even more shortages in the near future.
“From Jan. 1 through Thursday, 79 Philadelphia officers have been accepted into the city’s Deferred Retirement Option Program, meaning they intend to retire within four years, according to Mayor Jim Kenney’s office,” the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. “During the same time period last year, just 13 officers had been accepted into the program, the office said.”
“It’s the perfect storm. We are anticipating that the department is going to be understaffed by several hundred members, because hundreds of guys are either retiring or taking other jobs and leaving the department,” Mike Neilon, spokesperson for the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police, told the newspaper. …”
Why the hell would anyone be stupid enough to be a police officer in one of these cities? Who wants to be vilified by the corporate media as the next Derek Chauvin?
As the police resign en masse and quit doing their jobs in these cities under pressure from the Black Lives Matter mobs and Merrick Garland’s Department of Social Justice, the criminals who live there are going to feast upon their law abiding black and brown citizens. The corporate media isn’t going to be covering any stories about the ordinary people who lose their lives at the hands of criminals.
