‘We Must Maintain Law And Order’: North Carolina State Senator Threatens To Defund Cities That Defund Police

A state senator in North Carolina is planning to introduce legislation that will cut off state funding for cities that defund the police, calling such measures “reckless.”

North Carolina state Sen. Chuck Edwards (R-Hendersonville) said, “When the legislature reconvenes next year, the first bill I will introduce will defund cities that defund police,” according to the Asheville Citizen-Times. “We must maintain law and order. While municipalities have control over their local budgets, the state legislature also has control of its budget, and I intend to help create an environment where public safety is a priority.”


Edwards’ proposed legislation comes amid turmoil in Asheville, a liberal bastion in the otherwise conservative western part of North Carolina. Edwards’ district shares a county with Asheville, which has drawn national attention recently for its city council’s calls for reparations and defunding of the police. Earlier this week, the city council agreed to defund the city’s Police Department by 3%, or $770,000.

A coffin full of dirt and manure was left in front of Asheville Police Department (APD) headquarters on Wednesday, prompting APD Police Chief David Zack to denounce the act as “threatening imagery.”


Defund ALL cities nationwide that have this attitude.
