Most Voters Want Congress to Investigate the 574 Violent Riots in 2020 that resulted in over 2,000 injured police officers as well as the January 6th riot at the US Capitol

Not sure about the numbers given the source, but this is probably accurate. “Defund the Police” is an idea whose time has not quite yet come.

INDIANAPOLIS, July 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — A new national telephone and online survey taken by Rasmussen Reports, sponsored by the National Police Association, finds that 66% of Likely U.S. Voters think Congress should investigate the violent riots that engulfed the United States in 2020. Twenty one percent (21%) say no. Thirteen (13%) are not sure.

Additionally, the poll found a majority of likely voters believe:

  • Congress should award medals to the law enforcement agencies that defended their cities from violent looters and rioters in 2020 similar to the awards proposed by Nancy Pelosi for the Capitol Police.
  • Participants in the nationwide 2020 rioting and looting should be criminally charged as well as those who took part in the January 6th riots.
  • Elected officials who downplay the nationwide 2020 rioting and looting deserve to be criticized.
  • President Biden and Vice President Harris should meet with the family of St. Louis Police Captain David Dorn, who was murdered in 2020 when protecting his friend’s business from looters, just as they did with the family of George Floyd.
  • Patriots and supporters of law enforcement should be able to display the U.S. Flag and the Thin Blue Line flags as symbols of support and patriotism.
  • Refusing to prosecute trespassing, shoplifting, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, receiving stolen property, breaking and entering, resisting arrest and other ‘quality of life’ crimes is likely to increase the commission of those crimes
  • Young people should be taught to comply with police rather than resist or flee arrest.
