'Silent majority' wants police car to show up

Police in car mirror 1The streets seem to be filled with protesters demanding the defunding of police departments but a silent majority wants them on the streets.

From city council members in Portland literally vowing to disband law enforcement to New York City vowing a $1 billion cut, the push to punish law enforcement is moving forward all over the U.S. But a dive beneath the surface finds 73 percent of Americans say spending on police should stay the same or even be increased according to a Pew poll released late last week.

Among the 25 percent that said police budgets should be cut, only half think the cuts should be significant.

Randy Sutton of The Wounded Blue says he is pleased -- but not surprised -- by the poll.

“What we have seen in this poll,” he tells OneNewsNow, “is what police officers have known in their hearts.”

According to NPR, the poll questioned 4,708 adults in a mid-June survey. 

Sutton, a former Las Vegas police officer, says left-wing agitators are doing their best to keep the silent majority silent, including getting people fired from their jobs and beating them in the streets. But the poll results, he says, suggests the Left is not winning.

“It's really a time for Americans to stand up for their beliefs, for what is right,” he tells OneNewsNow, “and not be led by a media that has agendas, and by groups like Black Lives Matter who simply want to create a Marxist culture in our country.”
