(TargetLiberty.org) – The House Judiciary Committee is planning a hearing next week to discuss policing issues – and the Democrats are already signaling they’ll use it to push a hard-left anti-police agenda.
The subject of the hearing is the relationship between police and communities, focusing on allegations of racial profiling and police brutality. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says Democrats are planning comprehensive legislation for police reform. However, there’s already growing momentum from Democrats to defund police departments – an idea President Trump strongly opposes.
The Radical Left Democrats new theme is “Defund the Police”. Remember that when you don’t want Crime, especially against you and your family. This is where Sleepy Joe is being dragged by the socialists. I am the complete opposite, more money for Law Enforcement! #LAWANDORDER

Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) says the hearing will invite police, advocates, academics, and community leaders to give evidence. It’s likely to be a tense occasion, as rioting spreads and the toll of destroyed property and dead or wounded cops continues to rise.
