|Who Will Protect the Weak?|
|Night after night the narrative unfolds in the national media as our cities burn and blood runs in the streets. There is a revolt underway against the oppression of the police, who use force and intimidation to maintain brutish control over despairing and disadvantaged communities. Political opportunists, one of whom described her city’s turmoil as a ‘Summer of Love’, exhort us to ‘re-imagine’ our concept of law enforcement, to defund and disband the police force, and ‘re-direct’ funds to community based social services. American youth in particular are targets of this false utopian message, which is being disseminated with no filter throughout our high schools and colleges.|
We in the Montclair Republican Club say “Enough”.
It’s time to hear from those who understand reality, who put their bodies and lives in daily jeopardy to ensure that the most vulnerable among us can live life in safety. That is the measure of a great society. It’s the essence of America.
Anti-police rhetoric blares throughout social and multi-media on permanent loop, and nowhere more so than here in Montclair.
It’s time to push back. To give voice to the chief law enforcement officer of our town, to learn of the Herculean challenges he and his officers undertake every day on our behalf, and how each of us can help to support both the messaging and mission of the police.
Come for a meeting and dialog with Montclair Police Chief Todd Conforti. Let’s honor our most important public servants within the community, and talk about, solutions, community, and an end to the madness.
MEETING ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5, at 7:00 PM.POLICE BUILDING 647 BLOOMFIELD AVE 2ND FLOOR COURTROOM, MONTCLAIR, NJ
