With even Democrats like Joe Biden now distancing themselves from the Defund the Police movement, it’s time to end this far-left lunacy. Nowhere in America is there a clearer opportunity for change than in Oregon, where Republicans Christine Drazan is running for governor to take her state in a new direction for law enforcement. I’ll be promoting her there this week.
Oregon was one of the centers of this dangerous movement. As riots erupted in Portland in 2020, city and state leaders seemed more interested in blaming the police than in restoring order and holding violent rioters accountable. Instead of supporting law enforcement, Portland politicians passed reckless measures to disappoint them. The results were predictable and tragic: homicides increased by 207% in less than two years.
