The Reno City Council held a virtual council meeting today. First up was the Pledge of Allegiance. Then came public comment, which quickly went south.

The first public comment was from someone who called himself Vance Walker. He said he wanted to mention the recent protests. 

“Why can’t we all just be equal and get along?” Walker asked.

He imm…

We need new council members who believe in law and order, and who understand that all lives matter in our wonderful state and community. Our police force is one of the finest! They are out there keeping our community and our people safe! The statement, “defunding the police” is extremely divisive. Stop with that ugly rhetoric!

This is proof that you need police! If you defund the police you are asks for more of this sort of behavior!!! Our police are good men and women! Obviously we all have bad people in every profession but to defund will make big problems! Like the time the guy shot the man in Reno, he would have gotten away with it if not for the quick response of RPD! This will not change because you take away police, only thing that will happen is this will become more prevalent without police! People will know they will get away with committing crimes so they will commmore!
