GA Governor Kemp Saves Police
In a show strength against the radical defund police movement, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has signed a bill prohibiting large cuts to police budgets. With today’s ALG Minute, I’m Catherine Mortensen. The legislation stops cities and counties in the state from reducing their law enforcement budgets by more than 5% in one year or over the course of five years, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.Radical movements like the 'defund the police' movement seek to vilify the men and women who leave their families every day and put their lives on the line to protect all Georgians.The signing of the law comes after months of protests against the police and calls by Democrat politicians such as Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, New York, and Ilhan Omar, Minnesota, to defund police forces across the country. The bill will also require local governments that want to cut a police budget by more than 5% to hold public hearings to discuss the change. For more check us out at the DailyTorch.com.
