KNIGHT: Calls to defund the police are just leftist nonsense

Former police officer and True North fellow Leo Knight says this is a knee-jerk idea without any actual thought or analysis.

As protesters fill the streets of urban cities like Toronto and Vancouver, the latest leftist fad is getting louder. Leftist activists are calling on politicians to defund the police – this is all nonsense.

Who’s going to respond to a bank robbery or a violent crime if it’s not the police? Social workers? Yikes.

Former police officer and True North fellow Leo Knight says this is a knee-jerk idea without any actual thought or analysis.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
