부시, who also represents Maryland Heights and Ferguson, claimed in an interview that her constituents will understand her situation because she is working to “저장 11 million people from being evicted, or could possibly have a death attempt on my life.”
“If I end up spending $ 200,000, if I spent $ 10 more on it, 당신은 무엇을 알고, I get to be here to do the work. So suck it up – and defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets because we are trying to save lives,” Bush said in a CBS News interview.
Terrell told “Hannity” on Thursday that Bush is absurd and making a dubious argument:
“She talks about flaunting $ 70-, $ 80,000 on her private security but what about the Black people in Chicago, L.A., 워싱턴, D.C., they don’t have $ 100,000, they are just trying to put food on the table. She’s not helping Black people, she is gaslighting black people,” he said of the freshman “분대” 회원.
“She needs to pick a side. Either she helps the Black people in her community or she goes with the criminals. It is insulting for her to sit there and say she’s doing the work. She is doing the work for no one. She is destroying black communities by taking away their only line of defense: police.”
Terrell, 누가 흑인인가, said that most Black Americans want community policing in their towns and neighborhoods, and that Bush is not speaking for the Black community when she demands funding for law enforcement be cut.
“Who in her community has $ 100,000 to spend? It’s insulting! She doesn’t represent anybody, she doesn’t represent Black people, she represents criminals.”
인터뷰 중, 대표. 그리고 Crenshaw, R- 텍사스, echoed Terrell’s argument in that most working-class people in St. Louis can’t afford her pricey security and therefore depend on the police to protect and serve.
“성. Louis is one of the most dangerous cities in America. You have a 1 에 51 chance of being a victim of a crime there. 109 murderers and 100 of those victims have been Black people and they are not being killed by cops, they are being killed by criminals and murderers,” 그는 말했다.
“And you know who chases criminals and murderers? It is cops and that’s exactly who they want to defund.”
