Would-be lawmaker okay with defunding police

Empower Wisconsin | June 10, 2020

MADISON — The Democrat challenging state Sen. Dan Feyen (R-Fond du Lac) for the 18th Senate District seat is all on board the police defunding train.

Aaron Wojciechowski, an Oshkosh liberal, this week tweeted, “Calls to defund the police is a legitimate course of action.”

“We must seriously analyze their TAX-PAYER funded budgets and see where money can be better used. Real reform demands a shift in our priorities, resources, and attention,” the candidate wrote.

In other words, Wojciechowski is simpatico with the Minneapolis City Council, particularly its radical left President Lisa Bender. Bender dreams of a city without police.

“I think the idea of having a police-free future is very aspirational, and I am willing to stand with community members who are asking us to think of that as the goal,” she told CNN.

Bender believes that calling the police for help “comes from a place of privilege.” The council president, like so many social warriors engaged in the war on reality, is under the strained belief that police officers only help white people — and that bad cops only hurt black people.

Defunding isn’t flying among Minnesota legislative leaders like Senate Majority Paul Gazelka.

“One of the main reasons that police get called out is [for] domestic abuse and you think about those situations, and now no police officer is there, what are you going to say? ‘Please stop,’” Gazelka told Fox News. “I mean, that’s not going to work.”

Plenty of Wisconsin’s state and local leaders, too, don’t see defunding police departments as “a legitimate course of action.”
