Quotes from the news wire:
Executive orders in lieu of congressional action is not a sustainable means of achieving and instituting change. Being pro reform and being supportive of law enforcement are not mutually exclusive and the MCCA hopes that any executive action taken will reflect a balance between improving law enforcement transparency and best practices while being supportive of the men and women who protect and serve our cities.
Police officers across the country are facing an increase in violent crime and violent acts committed against them. Facing these dangerous situations is another reason why it has been difficult for police agencies to find recruits who want to put on a uniform and put their lives on the line. For those who purposefully attack, assault, or ambush law enforcement, they need to be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.
Elected officials need to take The FBI and Homeland Security needs seriously and stay close to their police chiefs and report any threats or incidents involving his/her family or staff as soon as possible, police chiefs strongly discourage the use of private security personnel for dignitary protection units as private security officers lack the authority needed to effectively fulfill the dignitary protection function.
The Association has worked in good faith with the negotiators and will continue to do so regardless of any efforts to torpedo reform. The MCCA has offered constructive critiques to both sides of the aisle as we seek to ensure reform is funded, realistic and will make a meaningful difference our communities are calling for.
There has been a little bit of retooling of department budgets, but for the most part I can't say defund has actually played out, the sustained increase in violent crime, the gun violence that we've been seeing and calls from the community that they don't want less police, they want better police, seems to be resonating.
There has not been a universal defund movement across major cities, i think there was a little bit of retooling of the department budgets, but I can't say that defund has actually played out. The sustained increase in violent crime, the gun violence that Major Cities Chiefs Association've been seeing, and calls from the community that they don't want less police, they want better police, seems to be resonating.
In that meeting, he did mention something to me that, you know, was the first about, somehow, an effort that he was engaged in to see if there was a statement that the government of Ukraine would make that would somehow disavow any interference in U.S. elections and would commit to the prosecution of any individuals involved in election interference, and, that was about as specific as it got.
I mean, so DOD was concerned about the obligation of funds, policy, my team, Defense Department officials were also concerned about any signal that Defense Department officials would send to Ukraine about a wavering in Defense Department officials commitment.... They are trying to negotiate a peace with Russia, and if they are seen as weak, and if they are seen to lack the backing of the United States for their Armed Forces, it makes it much more difficult for them to negotiate a peace on terms that are good for Ukraine.
Ukraine, and also Georgia, are the two front-line states facing Russian aggression, in order to deter further Russian aggression, we need to be able to shore up these countries abilities to defend themselves.Thats, I think, pure and simple, the rationale behind our strategy of supporting these countries.Its in our interest to deter Russian aggression elsewhere around the world.
