BREAKING: “I Am Not In The Least Bit For Defunding The Police”; Morgan Freeman Rejects Ridiculous Leftist Idea Of Defunding The Police

It was reported earlier today by Fox News that legendary actor Morgan Freeman broke with the progressive left during a recent interview and said he does not support the movement to strip funding from police departments across the country.

“I’m not in the least bit for defunding the police,” Freeman said in an interview with Black Enterprise’s Selena Hill. “Police work is, aside from all the negativity around it, it is very necessary for us to have them and most of them are guys that are doing their job. They’re going about their day-to-day jobs. There are some police the never pulled their guns except in rage, that sort of thing. I don’t know.”

Deadline went on to report that Freeman made the remarks while promoting his new film with actor Frankie Faison (The Wire), The Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain, which is based on the real-life murder of a 68-year-old Black veteran who was fatally shot by police inside his home in White Plains, NY.

YahooNews rounded off the story by reporting that Freeman is an executive producer for The Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain, which stars Frankie Faison as the titular character.

Faison shared Freeman’s thoughts on police, though he did note that Hollywood actors are treated differently by police than “people of ordinary walks of life.” Faison added that he wanted police to treat people equally rather than defund the police entirely.

Attorney and talk radio host Leo Terrell applauded Freeman’s disapproval of the defund the police movement, stating law enforcement is good for all communities to ensure public safety. However, he predicts Freeman will experience pushback from Hollywood over his remarks, Terrell told Fox News.
