Trucking Company Owner: Cities That Defund Police Are in for a Big Surprise

Cities that decide to cut their police funding could be cutting their own supply lines, too.
That was the message a trucking executive carried to Fox & Friends First on Wednesday, and its something urban politicians in the thrall of Black Lives Matter rioters and antifa anarchists should be seriously considering unless they think citizens can start growing their own food.
Because if its not safe for truckers to carry goods they just might not do it. And trucking companies wont be willing to risk the business.
Our first priority is to support our drivers and their safety when theyre on the road, Mike Kucharski, co-owner of Summit, Illinois- based JKC Trucking, told the Fox program.
Defunding the police is a bad idea because when youre on the road, you have youre for weeks and days at a time, driving 11 hours with valuable cargo, everybody wants to steal this.
On the road, Kucharski said, Theres no safe place. Violence is everywhere. So, if youre going to be having valuable cargo and theres going to be no police to rely on, whos going to protect our drivers?
The states that are going to defund the police, were not going to go to because were trying to avoid those states for safety reasons.

Its a message Kucharski has been trying to spread far and wide.
These drivers have the right to refuse a load because they are worried about their own safety, Kucharski told conservative, Wisconsin-based radio host Vicki McKenna in a June 30 interview, according to a JKC Trucking news release.
If these drivers all refuse to go into these areas, the food supply chain collapses. Theres going to be no more essential goods. The people in these states are going to run out of food. Then theres going to be complete chaos. Id say 72 hours and thats it. The partys over.
And it isnt just the hot spots like Minneapolis, where the self-important city council has already voted to begin the process of dismantling the police department. Or New York, where leftist Mayor Bill de Blasio and a leftist city council are apparently more interested in painting the words Black Lives Matter on the street than protecting actual black lives with adequate police officers.
(On Sunday, the New York Post reported the city has seen 777 shooting incidents this year one more than in all of 2019. The incidents resulted in 942 killed or wounded victims, the Post reported.)
USA Today reported Friday that police departments across the country are having funding slashed as a result of the defund the police movement and the toll the coronavirus crisis has taken on local government budgets.
Well, there isnt much a local official can do about the pandemic unleashed on the world by the deception of the Chinese Communist Party, but one thing every elected official in the United States should remember is that the first function of government is to protect the lives and property of its citizens.
If Democrats arent willing to do that and Democrats are the political party were talking about they have no business being in a position to make decisions. Because it might mean the supplies their citizens rely on wont be available for purchase (much less looting).
What are we supposed to do when were in trouble? Kucharski asked the Daily Caller in an interview published Monday.
somebody wants to hijack the truck? Somebody beats up a driver? You know, hurts my driver? Were not going to be able to help them, and were not going to be able to provide the backup for them to be safe.
His sentiments have struck a chord:
