Scam: The Real Reason For Defunding The Police Across America

Nothing happens by accident.

The real reason for calling on state and local communities to defund their LEO’s, is so they can be Federalized By Our Federal Government, giving them even more power over the people and creating a total police state which they have total control over by funding them with grants and other means of revenue!

Activists protesting police brutality are calling on cities and states to defund their police. Funding for local law enforcement now increasingly comes from the federal government.

Federal departments ranging from the Department of Justice to the Department of Agriculture have grant programs aimed at hiring more police, equipping them and constructing new police facilities.

This federal involvement undermines community accountability and focuses more on enforcement than minimizing harm.

Probably the most well-known of all such initiatives is the Community Oriented Policing Services program, established as part of the 1994 crime bill. The Department of Justice, which oversees the COPS program, says it has provided $14 billion since its inception to hire and train local police involved in community policing.

Here’s how two federal programs helped expand police funding by over 200% since 1980


Out of the three levels of government, federal spending has seen the fastest rate of growth. Between 1982 and 2015, federal spending increased by 354%, faster than both local and state spending combined. These include “a number of grant programs that are pushing money to the state and local government,” according to Paul Ashton, director of organizational impact at the Justice Policy Institute.

Most federal spending comes from two major grants from the Department of Justice — COPS and Byrne JAG. The Community Oriented Policing Services, or COPS, program was established as part of a bill signed by President Bill Clinton in 1994 to combat the rise in violent crime at the time.

As you will see below, there has been an elaborate plan in place by the Federal Government to have major influence over local communities’ Law Enforcement Agencies.

People ask “why don’t our local LEO’s organize their communities and restore normalcy to our cities and counties,” ? They can’t, they have to follow the rules dictated by the Federal Government once they accept their Grant money, bought and paid for, with your tax dollars, to follow Federal mandates. 

The corruption is so great, almost no one can understand how this was even allowed to happen.

They own the entire media complex, they feed the public only the information that will create the reaction they want to drive their agenda, they have militarized our local law enforcement agencies and they now control our military…

The games over folks, when the Federal Government is the largest creator of jobs, you no longer have a Republic, you have the beginning of a communist state. That is what we are all living right now. 

America’s only hope is that LEO’s wake up to how they are being used, to drive the New World Orders agenda, by funding from the Federal Government.

But considering that all LEO’s want a paycheck to feed their families, don’t expect them to stand up for what’s right, they will follow their orders, as expected.

If you do some research, you may see that most areas calling to defund the Police are Democratic Governors, Democratic Sheriffs, Democratic Mayors, order out of chaos is their motto, as they strip Americans of their God given Rights.

God have mercy on this country.

    It’s why I have said the Constitution nowhere calls for a Police Farce of fellow armed citizens. The forefathers knew they would turn into armed gangs, eventually, and go around the country like they OWN it and actually become criminals themselves – being armed and you are not allowed to and in fact in some States, only the police (haha) can determine that. Only they and the criminals who coincidentally are the only armed people in public.

    This was a plot of a commies to create a TERROR group of their own making to menace you. The original role of a so-called cop was just to investigate a crime and make an arrest for only YOU can enfarce the law, not a phony fellow armed citizen in public to menace you by ploticians. :twisted:

    To avoid the commie mess return to your GOD, become trained in weapons, and you won’t need the commie army of so-called cops on your own soil. Criminals will FLEE your nation and menace the pagan countries around you. :lol: :wink:

    Defund the police and replace them with constitutional, elected sheriffs who answer to the voters, not politicians.
