Hollywood is a liberal hotpot. They are constantly coming up with new ways to be “woke” and things to be upset about. So usually if it comes out of Hollywood, it’s going to be super Liberal. Actor Morgan Freeman is one of the few actors who has been outspoken against the left’s radical beliefs. He came out against Black History month, racism and recently during an interview with Black Enterprise’s Selena Hill he backed the police.
“I’m not in the least bit for defunding the police,” Freeman said. “Police work is, aside from all the negativity around it, it is very necessary for us to have them and most of them are guys that are doing their job. They’re going about their day-to-day jobs. There are some police the never pulled their guns except in rage, that sort of thing. I don’t know.”
Hill then asked Frankie Faison Freedman’s co-star in an upcoming movie what he thought.
“Well, I agree with Morgan,” Faison told Hill. “I’m certainly not in favor of defunding policemen.”
“Earlier this year, Freeman and a criminal justice professor donated $1 million to the University of Mississippi to establish a Center for Evidence-Based Policing and Reform.
“Look at the past year in our country – that sums it up,” Freeman said in June. “It’s time we are equipping police officers with training and ensuring ‘law enforcement’ is not defined only as a gun and a stick. Policing should be about that phrase ‘To Serve’ found on most law enforcement vehicles.”
The Defund the Police movement was foolish. Even if their argument is the police are not trained enough, defunding them is the complete opposite of what they would want. And it is beyond ignorant at this point to still be for defunding the police. If you look at all of the cities that defunded their police, they have had crime waves and some are having to borrow officers from neighboring areas because they don’t have enough to take care of their own residents.
