Police training and why defunding the force is a bad idea

  • Hour 1 of 6-10-20
  • Does the idea of defunding police make you scared, or maybe make your blood boil? Some want this to happen, but even Joe Biden is pushing back on it. Michael O’Meara, the president of the New York State Association of PBAs gave an incredibly stirring speech yesterday explaining how frustrated he is that police are being unfairly targeted. We know that not every cop is bad, and it would be unwise to eliminate funding for the police as this would only make society more unsafe. Camden, NJ, is being looked at as a community that has brought about effective police reform and they are training law enforcement to step up their game even more. Hear what Harvey Hedden has to say on this.
  • Because of everything happening right now, Paramount Network has canceled their show COPS, and A&E is thinking about getting rid of their police officer show. On top of that, HBO Max plans to remove Gone With the Wind due to perceived racial implications. They say it will come back eventually, but will most likely fill the movie with their own biased disclaimers. Are we going too far? Also, why are some cable news networks having their ratings soar? Christian Toto gives perspective.
