Long time readers will know I’ve mentioned numerous times your local representatives have never been allowed to discuss the role of government. Discussions of what should be funded and what shouldn’t has never taken place. Budgets are done by staff with a little Council input on big projects. They have never discussed priorities like what gets funded first – including roads.
Government is a representative republic so mob rule can’t happen, but the Local BLM Blono group thinks they can shout, harass, and terrorize your Council representatives into submitting to their demands.
Correction Black Lives Matter: It isn’t the City’s money, it is TAXPAYER money.
If a discussion of citizen priorities had ever taken place, getting a fast response by calling 911 would likely be at the top of the list.
What will de-funding police look like? You saw it at Target when the Normal police did nothing to intervene. Looters not only helped themselves to whatever they wanted they destroyed public property – as in police cars. Don’t forget Democrats bailed the looters out of jail after.
Target is nothing compared to what happened to a lady in Fredericksburg Virginia. She was out running errands with her child when a mob attacked her car. Of course she dialed 911. The dispatcher told her the Mayor authorized the protest and the police could not intervene:

Since many of your elected officials on both Councils have no moral compass, they are beginning to wilt to demands by people who want to “police” themselves. We know what that is going to look like!
If you want mob rule – do nothing.
If not, quit being silent while Bloomington and Normal dissolve into a place where it isn’t safe to live. If you don’t voice an opinion government will only hear the BLM voices.
