More than 100 Police Agencies Back Off From Guarding DNC Convention

Over 100 law enforcement agencies have pulled out of security agreements to help with security at the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, next month.

The move was mainly due to security concerns, for the law enforcement officers, as a citizen oversight committee ordered the Police Chief of Milwaukee to cease the use of tear gas and pepper spray.

Since the Milwaukee order was issued, more than 100 law enforcement agencies in Wisconsin and across the country decided against coming to Milwaukee, Morales told WTMJ-TV on Tuesday. They were concerned with directives placed on the police department, including not allowing tear gas or pepper spray, he said.


Franklin Police Chief, Rick Oliva, said they're not equipped to protect the citizens, protesters, or police officers due to the restrictions of equipment and action that's needed to deal with violent situations.

He won't send his officers into harm's way with their hands tied behind their backs.

“Our concern is that in the event protests turn non-peaceful, such a policy would remove tools from officers that may otherwise be legal and justifiable to utilize in specific situations,” West Allis Deputy Chief Robert Fletcher told the Journal Sentinel in an email.

It's looking like it's being set up to have a virtual convention.

  1. The dems want you to protect them but don’t want you in their city or state. Another great idea from the dumbass pilosi

  2. Wow!!! Finally, someone has some balls to NOT just keep kneeling and choking on the dumbocratic c*ck!!! Thank you sirs for using some common sense….and stay safe!

  3. They want to defund the police so what’s the problem? Oh yeah, it’s ok to protect themselves but not the general public.

  4. Anyone actually thinking about consequences of restricting / reducing police presence saw this coming. As police recruits willing to serve opt out we’ll be left with what???? Two officers shot responding to domestic dispute call. How many social workers ready to step into that situation. How do these politicians get re-elected? I believe there are more sensible people out there than not, ready to vote……

  5. Good for you. We need to stand up against the Democrats wish to defund the police. We would be in big trouble if that happened. Back the Blue!

  6. They want to defund the police. Deal with it. The Dems want protection for themselves but not for the general public. What a bunch of as******

  7. I certainly agree with the law enforcement agencies. If i were a delegate to the convention I would also stay away. Th political mayor and council of Milwaukee have created the problem and empowered radical, left wing extremists and rioters and bad people to run the show in Milwaukee. All people should stay away from a city that the liberals are destroying.

  8. As I have always said and this is just my opinion… Cops are basically big sissies without their guns and other weapons. A lot of cops became cops because they were bullied in school and they now want to get back at all the people they deem as non-passive.
    I have never had a cop do anything nice for me. All I have ever gotten from a cop is a ticket or disrespect.
    So screw the cops. Maybe we should only have ex-military people as cops. At least they have had proper training and will always follow protocol and enforce the law with safety in mind to protect and serve.
    Oh… and by the way… Screw “Potato Head Trump and his ignorant Ostrich followers too. (Read Mary Trump’s book for the potato head name reason)

  9. The police should also refuse to work the security details of the elected demons who defund their city police forces.
    Odd the demons all want to ‘defund’ and blame their own police employees, as well as take away the citizen’s rights; but still expect the police to gladly go to work every day, including maintain the demon’s own personal protection?

  10. I like your idea. Why would send police officers
    into a fight that you know is going to get ugly from the democrats thats good thinking on your part. Good Luck

  11. I left a comment yesterday that didn’t suck up to the police or Trump and his butthole Ostrich supporters, so I guess you guys are too chickensh_t to print it on this page. Figures… you guys must be a bunch of butthole Ostriches yourselves.

    1. Alan, you are an ass! Not just for your anti-Trump comments, but also for your anti-law&order comments. We don’t need a bunch of people only trained to kill the enemy overseas becoming peace officers on the American streets. There is TOO MUCH militarization of Law Enforcement already.

  12. Maybe the dems will use Antifa for security. They are available to travel. Dems can contact the mayors of Portland and Seattle for information.
