A recent poll reveals that a majority of truckers will stop making deliveries to cities that defund or their police departments.
According to CDL News, a website for the commercial trucking industry, 79% of truck drivers said they felt their safety would be put at risk if they were to deliver to a city where the police department had been disbanded.
We asked drivers on the app, “Would you pick up/deliver to cities with defunded or disbanded police departments? Why or why not?”
As of June 13, 2020, we’ve had over 1,283 respondents and 79% say they will refuse loads to cities with disbanded or defunded police departments.
Here are some of their responses:
“…if something was to happen and you have to take matters into your own hands, and then you risk being prosecuted for protecting yourself.”
“This is not an area you need to act fearless and think you you’d look like a fool for saying no…Imagine what kind of fool you look like for driving into a hot spot and putting your life in danger.”
“I will not deliver to an area with a disbanded police department. My life matter and I do this for my family. We are already at the mercy of these towns and cities with laws and hate against us for parking, getting a meal or even using a restroom.”
“Simple. We may not like it all the time, but laws and order is necessary.”
“Most places we go already can be dicy an about only time you see a cop is when lights is on behind you.”
“For my own safety and security of my customers’ loads, I have already informed my dispatcher that I will refuse all loads to cities that have defunded their police departments.”
The Minneapolis City Council reportedly plans to disband the city’s police department.
Every city in America collapses into chaos inside of 96 hours if the trucks stop rolling. Grocery stores, for example, only stock enough food for about 2-3 days of normal grocery shopping. Once the deliveries cease, the sudden increase in purchasing from the locals will wipe out grocery store shelves in less than 24 hours.
If you thought the George Floyd riots were bad, that was just a tiny taste of what you’ll see once deliveries of food, fuel, medicine and consumer goods are halted.
It also begs the question: Who will be stupid enough to drive trucks full of goods into left-wing cities that have collapsed into chaos and “warlord” autonomous zones where police are banned?
Nobody, of course.
