Does Cheri Bustos want to defund the police?

June 8, 2020

Cheri Bustos’ Democratic Party has officially turned the corner into full blown insanity, with the “Defund the Police” movement going from the radical fringes to a Democrat purity test almost overnight.

The mayors of New York City and Los Angeles have promised to slash their police budgets amid violent riots and looting in their cities. And the Minneapolis City Council has gone even further, with a veto-proof majority of members pledging to eliminate the police entirely, and a member of the council telling residents that if their home is broken into in the middle of the night they should check their privilege.
So where does Bustos stand on her party’s drive to defund he police? Will she bow down to the left wing base and support it? If not, what is she doing to stop this insanity?
