The Associated Press reported Tuesday that more than 100 police agencies across the country have ditched previous agreements to provide security for the Democratic National Convention, scheduled to take place in Milwaukee in August.
The report notes that the move by cops is a reaction to Democrat responses to the anti-police unrest that has raged throughout the Summer.
“They were concerned with directives placed on the police department, including not allowing tear gas or pepper spray,” said Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales.
“It is apparent there is a lack of commitment to provide the Milwaukee Police Department with the resources it needs to ensure the safety of peaceful protesters, attendees, citizens and police personnel,” noted Wisconsin, Franklin Police Chief Rick Oliva.
“I can not send personnel if they are not properly equipped or will not be allowed to engage in appropriate actions which would ensure their safety,” Oliva added.
“I understand that use of chemical irritants and pepper spray is serious and those are to be used only when legally justified. But when you take that out of the continuum that doesn’t leave the officers much other than getting harmed or using deadly force and that’s not good for any officer or the public,” Waukesha Police Chief Daniel Thompson also warned.
Democrat Ilhan Omar (MN) even described police as a “cancer,” adding “we are saying we don’t want your damn reforms.”

“The Minneapolis Police Department is rotten to the root, and so when we dismantle it, we get rid of that cancer, and we allow for something beautiful to rise, and that reimagining allows us to figure out what public safety looks like for us,” Omar said during a speech at a protest in June.
Congratulations to all our Police agencies for standing up against the Democrats. The large majority of the American public support our men and women in all law enforcement agencies.
Stay focused and strong. Vote the Democrats out of office.
We’re all 100% behind our nations police officers….alongside President Trump……
I Stand & Salute Police Officers! Replace those in office tht r Against law enforcement. Mo mercy!
The only reason law enforcement should be at the DNC is to arrest the idiots that have supported the riots.
Yeah you fools get rid of your police and see the results!
Everyone will have a gun and murders will skyrocket.
No one will be safe.
Idiot clowns like OCA and that idiot shown abuove need to be kicked out of this country along with pelosia and schummer.
They don’t only want to abolish the police, but the prisons, also. This is why it is so important to vote all Republicans in 2020.
May I suggest the democrats contact Antifa and BLM to protect their sorry butts for their lame convention.
Take away the armed guards for those in congress and let them protect themselves. It is a disgrace that the Democrats want to abolish the police. Lets abolish the House, they are useless anyway. The democrats reject God as their leader, They accept Satin as their leader and as well as BLM and Antifa as their leaders. It is not to late for the sinful democrats to return to Jesus Christ who is all forgiving if you want to change your way and see the light.
Trump 2020! Biggest supporter of the BRAVE HEROS IN BLUE!!!! Let the dirty Demorats reap what the sow!! SUPPORT LAW ENFORCEMENT!!!
I support our men in. Blue 100%. I’m proud of them for all they do. Why should they protect the DNC when the Democrats don’t protect them? No police at the convention will give them a taste of what America citizens will feel like without the police!
I support the Police and their decision 100%. Having the Democrats thrown them to mercy of the crazed protesters.
I have to honestly say that I absolutely back the decisions of all the police agencies in not offering protection for the Democratic convention!!!! As far as Omar goes, she can go “F” herself!!!L?
Give the Deomcrats that attend guns and knives….to PROTECT THEMSELVES….Maybe they’ll turn on each other…I hope….
Thank you all members of US law enforcement, including those who gave the knee to Floyd. GREAT JOB!! Make America CLEAN!!
Most Americans support our law enforce.and our military. The DNC and their terrorists must be dealt with. I personally will not have bombs – cocktails – lasers – bricks – bottles or any type of weapons used against me or others. They want to use fire you respond with fire.
I stand 100% with all if our police officers! Why would any democrat think that the police should protect them when they want to do away with the police?!! Hey ignorant Dems you can’t have it both ways! You don’t think that “we the people “ need police protection but your elitest asses should be protected by the men and women that you want to destroy??? TRY PROTECTING YOURSELVES AND SEE HOW THAT WORKS FOR YOU!
You know you reap what you sow!!
Nothing will happen to the dems. They have BLM and Antifa. Rioting and destruction. That ought to help their cause. That’s what they want is the end of America. Ok let’s start with them
God bless our brave police officer’s and the disrespect they constantly receive from these lunatic demorat politicians. Who can blame them if they walk off the job and let the demorats kill each other, These lunatics must be voted out soon. They are a disgrace to our country.
I been a volunteer member of the riverside police since May of 1994 and I’m very proud of the police ,they put their lives on the line to protect us every day, and to get people like Pelosi,AOC,Omar and the rest of idiots that want to Defund the police ,and see how fast they would called for help if the protesters come knocking on their door, including ,Biden and Sanders, and I hope president Trump win the second time in office , at least he is not destroying American history and burning buildings ,and I almost forgot GOV. GAVIN NEWSON , a PELOSI RELATIVE ,No wander he is messing California up.,,,,,
Senator Rep. Gohmertt, want the Democrats to change their name because he says it racist. And this is where Slavery started. I think ALL Democrats needs to be defunded and out of the Government. And I agree with ALL police that wants to STAND down and NOT support the Democrats and STOP being their body guards. Let them fend for themselves.
I could not DIS agree more with the fanatics who say MIGHT MAKES RIGHT. Intelligence is what is called for. We need to remember what FAILURES the Gestapo and the SS were. Police ARE trained and allowed to protect themselves. What the restraints call for is NOT using the police as soldiers. Let the US Army do its job and the police do their job. Go BIDEN. 2020
I wouldn’t guard or protect your lying Democrat asses either! Protect your ignorant asses yourself….
YOU ALL DESERVE EACH OTHER! STFU
NO ONE LIKES YOU PEOPLE….ANYWHERE…
