Poll: Cities That Disband Police May Stop Getting Truck Deliveries

In this era of interstate commerce, it would be extremely difficult – if not impossible – for a city of any decent size to subsist without a steady influx of truck deliveries from around the country. This is how the shelves of the grocery store stay stocked, it’s how Target has things to sell when you walk in the door, and it’s how gasoline finds its way to the local filling station. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in terms of how integral trucking is to the way our modern cities are run. Put simply: If truckers ever decided, en masse, to cut a city off from their services, that city would be in a whole mess of trouble.

Well, if a recent poll is correct, that’s exactly what might happen to cities that go along with this absurd “defund and disband the police” scheme being bandied about by Black Lives Matter and their Democratic Party enablers. According to a new poll taken by CDLLife, a website geared towards truck drivers, a full 79% of respondents confirmed that they would “refuse loads to cities with disbanded or defunded police departments.”

This may not be the first – or even primary – reason not to follow the left down their latest idiotic rabbit hole, but it’s definitely something worth thinking about.

CDLLife collected some of the most memorable responses from the truckers they polled:

“…if something was to happen and you have to take matters into your own hands, and then you risk being prosecuted for protecting yourself.”

“This is not an area you need to act fearless and think you you’d look like a fool for saying no…Imagine what kind of fool you look like for driving into a hot spot and putting your life in danger.”

“I will not deliver to an area with a disbanded police department. My life matter and I do this for my family. We are already at the mercy of these towns and cities with laws and hate against us for parking, getting a meal or even using a restroom.”

“Simple. We may not like it all the time, but laws and order is necessary.”

“For my own safety and security of my customers’ loads, I have already informed my dispatcher that I will refuse all loads to cities that have defunded their police departments.”

Are you listening, Minneapolis? You think that your citizens are suffering from inequality now? Just wait until you follow through on your promise to disband the police department. You guys won’t have to bother declaring yourself an “autonomous zone.” The natural forces of human preservation and common sense will take care of that on their own.

What do you think?

  1. Those cities and localities that defund and disband their police departments will end up with neither law nor order. The police serve the community with an enforcement mechanism to keep the powerful
    (read as physically stronger or financially stronger) from depriving others of their freedoms. For an example; look to the Middle Ages.

    • TALKING ABOUT DE-FINDING: Their is a much bigger problem the US Postal Services could run out of cash by September if Trump and the Republican controlled Senate fail to provide a financial rescue what will happen to all the mail-in ballots and people who need their medicines by mail? The Democrats are pushing for $25 Billion relief package to keep the USPS running.

      Should they fail to provide the necessary funding they would have created a major constitutional crisis and chaos to our Voting Rights and health and welfare.

      This raises another question could Trump sabotage the mail-in ballots election by vetoing the bill?

  2. Great idea! These morons haven’t been disciplined for their idiotic actions, which is the problem! Hopefully the “normal” people in these locales will force some sanity if they’re disadvantaged by the action.

  3. Sad for the residents of these cities who aren’t radical but they voted these loonies in so no deliveries is a result. Good for the truckers. They deserve to be safe.

  4. Good for the truckers, they should not have to take the risk of going into these radical cities where the only law is whatever the militant mob decides on. There is no protection from the gangs who are extorting and ,as I hear, suggesting slavery of all whites in the area, and they call US racist? They want to be their own country, then let them ,with NO help from the outside. Cut off all government money and services and let them take care of themselves, isn’t that what they want?

  5. ………NO trucks…..NO water…NO electric……NO fuel……NO trash pick up…….SHUT IT DOWN…..
    ………… YES to LAW and ORDER………….

  6. As a “retired truck driver” I wouldn’t make deliveries either. DOT Regulations forbid a truck driver from carrying a “weapon” in his or hers truck for protection.

    • When I was driving, I like most of the truckers today was going into areas that I would not have been caught dead in without a weapon! Believe you me, I always had one close! There is areas that I would not venture into, such as the northeast and chicago!

  7. Hope all truckers stick to this policy because if only one truck rolls into a town that has had no regular food delivery then that trucker can expect to have a crowd surround his truck and stripe it of every thing in it, he loses money because the load didn’t get delivered thru no fault of his and he also may wind up with damage to him and his vehicle

  8. If the truckers do that the cities or towns will be gone in DAYS! NOT WEEKS BUT DAYS!! And you will not be able to move out either! Why, because it takes trucks to do that too!! YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN!

  9. I think this is a Great Idea to stop all truck delivers to cities that screw their police and citizen over for these low life Looters, Marxists, Arsonists, etc.!!! It’s all Politics of the lowest order!!!

  10. Truckers get hijacked where they have small local police force. The crooks stealing whole load. Don’t think it would be safe for truckers to go into those riot occupation camps.
    God Bless our Country.
    Each state has to be responsible for the riots. The Seattle Governor approved the riots. Defunded Law Enforcement.
