Austin to Defund Police, Divert Money to Abortion

Austin has been one of the fastest growing cities in the country recently. This may be reversed. Swept up in antipolice mania, the City Council has voted unanimously to cut the budget of the police department by $150 million. This sets Austin on the same anarchic track that has been rushing New York, Minneapolis, Seattle, and Portland to ruin.

Via the Texas Tribune:

The proposal to cut police funding by about one-third of its total $434 million budget calls for immediately cutting around $21.5 million from the department. This would include reallocating these funds to areas like violence prevention, food access, and abortion access programs.

Police departments are getting defunded at the expense of public safety because Black Lives Matter. How ironic that some of the money would be diverted to abortion, which takes a disproportionate number of black lives.

About $50 million would be allocated to the “Reimagine Safety Fund,” which…

…would divert money toward “alternative forms of public safety and community support through the yearlong reimagining process.”

It’s an increasingly dangerous world out there. Navel-gazing will not make it safer.
