Clinton Police Chief Weighs In On Defunding Police

'Asinine' is how Clinton Police Chief Ben Lowers describes the idea of defunding police.

 

Chief Lowers did not hold back in his opinions on the matter and believes while there might be a need to discuss enhancing community programs, the importance of police is largely unseen in so many situations in a given community. 

 

 

While he doesn't believe disbanding police will ever be a reality, he says it is too easy for people to get the public worked up and cheering for an idea that is not well thought out.

 

 

Chief Lowers believes there is too much bashing back and forth on the political spectrum and Americans cannot get along on anything. He says politicians are performing to their base rather than thinking through their proposed solutions.
