Icon Charles Barkley Dismisses “Defund the Police” Movement: “Most of the Cops Do a Fantastic Job”


Not everyone who supports #BlackLivesMatter or equality for all supports the "defund the police" movement that has grown out of it.

For most Americans, the idea of defunding the police is still a radical idea.

Icon Charles Barkley has spoken out and dismissed the idea entirely.

Appearing on CNN, Barkley said, "We need the cops, most of the cops do a fantastic job, but instead of defunding and all this other stuff, let’s just do police reform. Everybody should be on board for that whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, conservative or liberal."

His message is no different than President Trump's message of law and order.

President Trump is expected to unveil proposals that would help eliminate the rare instances of police brutality.
