White liberals who live inside gated communities with their own security officers and the criminal element are the only ones who want to defund the police.
A poll was taken in Detroit, whose Black population makes up 79% of the city and the results will shock some people but not conservatives.
A new USA Today/Suffolk University/Detroit Free Press Poll finds that the vast majority of Black citizens would rather have more police on the streets, not less.
90% of the people want more cops on the job. 75% reject the idea of defunding the police. The poll also reveals that whites are more apt to support defunding the police than are Black residents.
Black men were twice as likely as Black women to report having been stopped and questioned by police investigating crimes, 38% compared with 17%. What’s more, Black men were twice as likely as Black women to say they weren’t satisfied with how police handled the encounter, 46% compared with 20%.
“You have some good cops and then you have some bad ones,” Derrick Wilson, 52, who also goes by the name D.J. Raw, said in a follow-up interview. At times, some of those surveyed said they had seen racial profiling in the approach police took toward them personally and toward their neighborhoods in general.
This makes sense to me because white citizens of the liberal persuasion are mind-numbed robots who repeat whatever their leaders say, and the fact that in general Blacks live in more crime-ridden streets than those who live in the suburbs.

To them, police are a matter of survival.
But Detroit residents’ concerns are more basic, given the threat to ordinary people just leaving the house.
In Detroit, one in five residents (19%) cited public safety as the biggest issue facing the city, second only to education, named by 23%. On a list of eight concerns, police reform ranked last, at 4%.
The poll found a significant racial divide on the issue. Black residents ranked crime at the top of their list of concerns: 24% cited public safety, just 3% police reform.
But white residents were a bit more concerned about police reform than public safety, 12% compared with 10%. Education was by far the biggest issue on their minds, named by 31%.
