Defend The Police!

Defend The Police!

Calgary's brave police officers protect our homes, businesses, and communities from harm and keep us safe. Now, some on City Council are calling for the police to be defunded. They want to reduce the number of police on our streets and spend the money instead on psychologists and social workers. As we've seen in many US cities, taking police out of communities results in more violent crime, more property damage, and significantly less public safety.

We need to stand up for Calgary's police and push back against those who want to paint our police as villains. Let's #DefendThePolice!

I, the undersigned, support Calgary police officers who put their lives on the line to keep us safe. I call on Calgary City Council to defend the police!

    I believe The Emperor said, "150 people wrote letters about the The Calgary Police Service-how many of them had criminal records? How many made their complaint related to their arrest? shouldn’t matter-how about this; 150 divided by 1,250,000=0.012%! I forgot, the tiniest minority gets to dictate to the HUGE MAJORITY. DANGEROUS times are coming my fellow citizens! WAKE UP-STAY AWAY FROM MAINSTREAM MEDIA-DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH THEN VOTE!

    We need our police force more than ever, but it is the justice system that has filed since the Liberals have been in power.

    I sign to save both the police and citizenry from the ineptitude of sycophantic power hungry politicians who seek only to maintain a grip on power by appealing to morons on Twitter.
