    According to a publication of the trucking industry, 77% of truckers say they will refuse loads for delivery in cities that defund the police. They say the personal risks to truck drivers are unacceptable. Trucking is already statistically one of the most dangerous occupations in America.

    I wonder how the people in those cities are going to eat, let alone have access to consumer goods. The hooligans of BLM and ANTIFA have already burned out and looted many of their local stores, many of which probably will never be rebuilt. Now they are going to face the shortage of anything shipped in, which includes food, clothing, electronics, and just about everything. While this will be actual justice for those who participated in the orgy of destruction and the radical anti-police politicians, what about the ordinary people who had no hand in this nonsense?
