'Who is going to process crime scenes, arrest bad people?' Gowdy argued

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) blasted the notion to defund police departments, which is currently being pushed by the far-left.

Gowdy called the idea "the single dumbest idea I have ever heard," arguing it would undermine the entire justice system.

During Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Scott added that the idea to “defund the police” was a “ridiculous idea.”

“It is not an idea whose time has come,” Scott said.

“It should never come. The absolute nation requires law and order."

"We need order in our streets, and the easiest way to have that is to have a strong presence of character-driven law enforcement officers.”

Scott stated that as part of an effort to get law enforcement to report on data regarding force from police that leads to death, he introduced the George Floyd-Walter Scott Notification Act.

The act would give lawmakers a clear picture of what is going on throughout the country.

Gowdy said:

“Defunding the police is the single dumbest idea I have ever heard.”

“Who is going to process crime scenes, arrest bad people?” Gowdy continued.

“Who is going to enforce any law, child sex abuse, homicide? Who is going to do it, if it’s not the police?”

Last week, Officials in Minneapolis, Minnesota, vowed that they would “dismantle” the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) and “replace” the law enforcement agency.

Minneapolis City Council will vote on a measure on Friday, June 5, to make significant changes to the (MPD) in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

City Councilman Jeremiah Ellison wrote online on Thursday that the city will “dismantle” the MPD, though the details of those changes have yet to be finalized.

“We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department,” Ellison wrote on Twitter.

“And when we’re done, we’re not simply gonna glue it back together," he continued.

Neon Nettle reported last week that a poll showed 58 percent of Americans support the deployment of the military to assist police officers.

The poll, carried out by Morning Consult, found Americans wanted military action to bring the rioting and looting, which have ravaged 130 US cities, to an end.
