Defund and Deny

Occasionally, bureaucracies will surprise you with their innovation.

Instead of 'ignoring the problem hoping it will go away' with regard to the problem of police self-expanding their mandates (read: self-justification of excessive force, stormtrooping, and abuse of qualified immunity), the bureaucrats are de-funding the police, making the problem go away so they can ignore it.

Kudos, government stooges.
