Despite Crime Surge, Oakland City Council Votes to Defund Police

“Despite recently receiving $190 million from the Biden Administration, the City Council of Oakland, California voted Thursday to defund their police department by almost $18 million,” The Federalist reports.


Oakland Mayor Libby Shaaf pushed back on the move, saying the budget slashes, “cuts 50 police officers who respond to Oaklanders’ 911 calls and enforce traffic safety.”
