Troubled Times For Policing

From National Review:

As turmoil mounts around Black Lives Matter agitation in American cities, more and more law-enforcement officers realize that in just about any encounter with black suspects, they risk being thrown to the wolves by craven local prosecutors, mayors, or police administrators, no matter how right or blameless they may be in the actions they take under pressure.

And the next time they see that cluster of surly young males hanging out on the corner, they may decide to just drive on by. After all, they can’t get suspended, fired, or indicted if they wait to take the report on whatever mayhem those suspects might commit.

Gun Dealer On Buying Guns and Ammo

From The Truth About Guns:

Demand is still outstripping supply on many different fronts on firearms and ammunition. Vendors have flat out told dealers that there’s nothing to ship and they should expect shelves for a while. Larger dealers get filled first, smaller dealers get the short end of the stick since they are, well, smaller accounts.
We’re seeing $500-650/thousand on 9mm FMJ 115gr online among the dealers that have anything left. Even Palmetto State Armory is picked clean on 9mm as of this writing, save for some defensive ammo at about $40 for a 20-round box.

Backlash In Seattle For Funding The Police

From Stop Defunding:

With over 100,000 signatures on our petition, the city council is panicking and has postponed the vote to defund the Seattle Police Department until Monday, August 10th.
On Monday August 3rd 2020, despite having no specific plan, the Seattle City Council will vote to defund the Seattle Police Department.  The defunding of the SPD would mean that up to 800 officers would be fired.  That’s over half of all sworn officers.  It would also mean immensely longer 911 response times and of course, higher crime rates.  Please sign our petition to stop the defunding of the Seattle Police Department and send a message to the city council that says “no” to the defunding the Seattle Police Department.
