As law enforcement officers across the country don uniforms and equipment to face another shift, it’s difficult to imagine their heightened sense of defensiveness. Each day, American law enforcement officers assume the duties of protecting us against violent offenders. Yet as a group, law enforcement officers are collectively castigated in the absurd rallying cry of the “Defund the Police.” The people shouting to defund the police seem unable to connect the dots of how those police officers still protect and serve them.
In Afghanistan, 13 U.S. troops were killed on August 26 while serving and protecting the vulnerable.

It’s one thing for a street thug who hates the police to possess a firearm, but it is an entirely different scenario when America’s sworn enemy receives tens of billions in munitions and weapons from a feckless politician.
