79% Of Truckers Don’t Want To Travel Through Areas That Defund Police. Neither Do I.

I agree with the 79 percent of truckers that don’t want to travel through communities that defund police. Neither do I.

Imagine if you’re a truck driver and having to pull over at night to sleep. Can you imagine how frightening it would be if you couldn’t call for help if something went wrong. Or for that matter, what would happen to you if you tried to defend your self against criminals and in the end were blamed for taking matters into your own hands. It could land you in jail.

It’s a recipe for disaster.

Defunding police is just plain stupid. A civil society needs to be able to protect itself from criminal elements and citizens, particularly the most vulnerable, must be able to rely on their community being protected.

Can you imagine a world in chaos? Wait, yes, I can imagine it and I’ve seen it.

First and foremost, in the war zones I’ve traveled to throughout my career, where the most vulnerable women and children had no one to turn to for help. Secondly, I see it in the craziness of Seattle’s CHAZ (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) where mainly over-privileged American kids, who sleep in their parents’ basements, are angry about their privilege.
