Original Message he latest political initiative from Hollywood might be its most insane yet. Here’s the proposal from some of tinseltown’s brightest: How about we as a society decide to defund our police forces?

Yeah, real stunning stuff. In support of the radical racial and social justice initiative Black Lives Matter, A-list celebrities including John Legend, Natalie Portman and Lizzo have signed an open letter demanding that police forces in the United States be defunded as a response to “police brutality” and “systemic racism.”

The left claims that these societal ills caused the death of George Floyd at the hands of officer Derek Chauvin, an event that has led to nationwide protests. Though these protests, all done in the name of Black Lives Matter, have devolved into destructive rioting in many places, thus elevating the need for more police.

The irony of this initiative is especially potent with the recent news of the slaying of retired African American police captain David Dorn.

According to entertainment outlet Us Magazine, the “Movement 4 Black Lives” – a “coalition of more than 100 organizations representing black communities” – authored the letter which called for money to be pulled out of police forces across the country. The coalition viewed that “repurposing the money for positive resources” like “education, healthcare” and various "community programs” will “create a better future for all.”
