As Citizens of this great City and County, it is our responsibility to Make SA Great!
Make no mistake, FIXSAPD’s claim of accountability in negotiations with SAPOA is all about money, defunding police, to increase public spending on social reform programs that feed the Poverty Industry. To know this fact all you need do is look to Austin and the game plan of Austin’s Justice Coalition.
Beginning in 2016, Austin Justice Coalition, started a grass-roots movement to influence contract negotiations, claiming officer accountability as the core of their demands. To achieve this goal, Coalition members began attending Council sessions demanding changes in police contracts that created greater transparency in police disciplinary issues. Coalition members began attending contract negotiations and demanded participation in contract negotiations. As a result, Austin council passed a police officer contract which was half that of the previous, cutting salaries, benefits, and programs to retain and recruit officers to the department.
Following their success, the Austin Justice Coalition, convince Austin City Council to defund police services in the city’s 2021 budget, 150 million dollars was taken from public safety and essential services to Austin’s citizens. For the sake of funding even more social reform programs, such as hotels for the homeless, the citizens of Austin lost valuable services necessary for their protection.
Here’s a short list of just some of the essential services lost due to the efforts of the radical left movement in Austin:
1. 911 Call Center $17.7 million
2. Forensic Science $12.7 million
3. Support Services $14.1 million
4. Community Partnership $2.5 million
5. Victim Services $3.1 million
6. Internal Affairs $4.5 million
7. Traffic Enforcement $18.4 million
8. 3 cadet classes $2.2 million
9. Officer overtime $2.8 million
Does any of this look familiar it should, San Antonio City Council in our 2021 city budget defunded our law enforcement $1.7 million dollars from the Crisis Intervention Unit, officer overtime and recruit incentive funds. City Council was testing the waters to see if the citizenry would voice objections to defunding law enforcement.
It’s time to voice our objection to City Council defunding our police force, announce to our representatives that we as a city will not submit to radical leftist and put our city at risk simply to feed the Poverty Industry and social reform programs that only benefit political insiders. WE ARE NOT AUSTIN…SAY NO TO PROPOSITION B.
