Former GOP Congressman Trey Gowdy joined current U.S. Senator Tim Scott to unload over the recent push by the left to defund the police.
Gowdy called it, “the single dumbest idea he has ever heard.”
According to The Daily Wire:
Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) and former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) both slammed the far-left’s new agenda of defunding police departments, saying that the idea is ludicrous and would undermine the entire justice system.
“It is not an idea whose time has come,” Scott continued. “It should never come. The absolute nation requires law and order. We need order in our streets, and the easiest way to have that is to have a strong presence of character-driven law enforcement officers.”
Scott added that he has introduced the George Floyd-Walter Scott Notification Act in an effort to get law enforcement agencies to report data on the use of force that leads to death so that lawmakers can get a clearer picture of what is going on throughout the country.
Later during the program Gowdy said, “Defunding the police is the single dumbest idea I have ever heard.”
Gowdy asked who was going to enforce any law, who was going to show up at crime scenes if not the police?
