Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D) Requested Police Protection at Home While Championing Defunding Police.
“Defund the system that’s terrorizing our communities.” Said Bowman
“About a week after the January 6 incident at the Capitol, we received a request from the Congressman’s office for increased police presence at his residence,” Yonkers Police Department Detective Lt. Dean Politopoulos told the New York Post.
“In response, our Intelligence Unit was notified of the request and the local precinct instituted what is called a directed patrol at the Congressman’s home for the next two weeks,” Politopoulos explained.
Bowman’s calls for additional police protection comes as he has called for defunding police for Americans in which he said in December of 2020 to “defund the system that’s terrorizing our communities.”
