Democrats seem awfully fond of private and federal police forces for a party that has championed movements to “defund the police.”

Democratic Missouri Rep. Cori Bush said during a now-infamous television interview that she was going to pay tens of thousands for private police protection, but that she would continue to push to defund the police. Progressives have repeatedly demonstrated that, while they may dislike local police forces — or at least pretend they do, for political clout — they eagerly employ hired or federal forces that act at their behest.
