Harvard Professor: “Defunding The Police Is Not A Solution And Could Cost Thousands Of Black Lives”\

A Harvard university Professor has urged that defunding the police would cause more loss of life, citing figures showing that there are “450 excess homicides per year” when police are not able to do their jobs proficiently.

“Defunding the police is not a solution and could cost thousands of black lives,” professor Roland Fryer wrote in an email to the College Fix.

Fryer has recently authored a research paper titled “Policing the Police: The Impact of “Pattern-or-Practice Investigations on Crime,” noting that police are less present when ‘viral incidents’ occur, meaning crime, including homicides increase… a lot.

“Our estimates suggest that investigating police departments after viral incidents of police violence is responsible for approximately 450 excess homicides per year” the paper reads.

Defunding the police is a dumb idea. It causes more problems.

Black lives only matter if they are killed by white people. They don't matter if they kill each other or are killed by Planned Parenthood.
