The Democrats Are Leading Advocates of Police Violence

The Democrats, who complain about police violence and want to “defund” the police, are among the greatest advocates of police violence.

Their solution for every problem is a new law or regulation. Yet every law or regulation is backed by the threat of physical force, ultimately the threat to kill you if you persist in disobeying it (e.g., if you resist arrest with a weapon).

The threat to kill law breakers is proper if the laws they’re breaking are laws against such things as murder, rape, robbery, assault, and arson, i.e., acts of the initiation of physical force.

But these are laws the Democrats don’t want enforced. They want to “defund” their enforcement. (Think of the riots.) The laws they want are laws that needlessly compel you to do what you don’t want to do or prohibit you from doing what you peacefully do want to do.
