Miami-Dade Police Urge Residents to Arm Themselves After Possible Budget Cuts

Yehuda Remer, Truth Revolt, July 10, 2014

Rivera, president of the Miami-Dade Police Benevolent Association, has warned Florida residents to arm themselves because the police are not coming.

Speaking to WSVN News, Rivera said, “If the mayor’s not going to provide security, then my recommendation, as an experienced law enforcement officer for nearly 40 years, is either buy yourself an attack dog, put bars on your windows and doors and get yourself some firearms because you’re going to have to protect yourselves.”

The comments were made after Mayor Carlos Gimenez decided to cut $64 million from his 2014-2015 budget  resulting in a possible loss of 600 police jobs to the county.
