Kansas GOP Congressional Contender Amanda Adkins Challenges Rep. Sharice Davids: Don't Defund, DEFEND The Police
The "defund the police" movement is still hotly debated among so-called "latte liberals" and much more powerful tech company leaders. Here's a glimpse at the argument closer to home and as part of a tough election contest . . .
Adkins Challenges Davids To Sign The Police Pledge
Overland Park – Today, Amanda Adkins signed Heritage Action's Police Pledge. Signers "pledge to oppose any bill, resolution, or movement to 'Defund the Police.'"
Adkins challenged Sharice Davids to join her in signing the pledge.
"We rely on police officers to keep us safe every day, and a just, peaceful society would not be possible without their service," said Adkins. "I stand with the brave men and women of Kansas City law enforcement, and voters deserve to know whether my opponent does as well."
The full pledge reads:
"A lawful society—free from mob rule and violent insurrection—is not possible without Law Enforcement.
Police Officers have chosen a noble profession. They dedicate their lives to upholding the law and protecting the sacred rights of their fellow citizens. As a profession, they deserve support and respect.
I stand with America’s Police and pledge to oppose any bill, resolution, or movement to 'Defund the Police.'"
