North Carolina State Senator Chuck Edwards plans on introducing legislation that will defund cities that defund the police, calling those cities "reckless."
North Carolina state Sen. Chuck Edwards (R-Hendersonville) said, “When the legislature reconvenes next year, the first bill I will introduce will defund cities that defund police,” according to the Asheville Citizen-Times. “We must maintain law and order. While municipalities have control over their local budgets, the state legislature also has control of its budget, and I intend to help create an environment where public safety is a priority.”
Edwards’ proposed legislation comes amid turmoil in Asheville, a liberal bastion in the otherwise conservative western part of North Carolina. Edwards’ district shares a county with Asheville, which has drawn national attention recently for its city council’s calls for reparations and defunding of the police. Earlier this week, the city council agreed to defund the city’s Police Department by 3%, or $770,000.
A coffin full of dirt and manure was left in front of Asheville Police Department (APD) headquarters on Wednesday, prompting APD Police Chief David Zack to denounce the act as “threatening imagery.”
“Protesters have left a casket full of dirt and what we believe to be cow manure at the front door of APD,” the department tweeted.
