Co-owner of JKC Trucking is warning cities that want to defund their police departments.
“Our first priority is to support our drivers and their safety when they are on the road,” co-owner of JKC Trucking Mike Kucharski told, “Fox & Friends First.”
Kucharski explained that defunding the police is a horrible idea because truckers carry valuable cargo on the road for days at a time.
“Everybody wants to steal this,” Kucharski said.
Kucharski said that another concern in the future is cargo insurance and he’s not sure how to renew contracts that are set to expire.
“Another issue that I am seeing in the future is I have cargo insurance, liability insurance, fiscal damage insurance, and I am very curious how when I renew my contracts at the end of the year, if there is going to be language — if I am going to even have coverage going into these places,” Kucharski said.
“Right now I have coverage going all over domestically. You have to get special coverage for Canada or Mexico or you might have to buy special riders for this on top of everything.”
As 258 police departments are about to announce their intentions to defund their police departments crime has skyrocketed.
Fox News reports:
A soon-to-be-released survey of 258 police departments nationwide shows almost half have had their budgets cut amid calls for police to be defunded despite increases in gun violence and otherwise violent crime in some parts of the country, according to USA Today.
The outlet was first to report that the Police Executive Research Forum publication, which is expected to be released in the coming days, shows cuts in the police budgets are largely being made to training and equipment.
The cities that choose to defund the police are going to have to prove that they can curb crime because if they can’t crime isn’t the only crisis they are going to have.
