No police? No deliveries

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Truck drivers worked all the way through the lockdowns, delivering goods to the “essential” businesses that allowed people to stay home. They suffered from lack of support services. For the last three weeks, they faced deliveries to cities full of protests and unrest. Now that those cities are either dismantling or talking about defunding their police departments, truckers are saying they won’t deliver in those cities.

Throughout the last three weeks since George Floyd’s death, massive numbers of people have filled the streets of many of America’s cities to protest and sometimes riot. These mostly Democrat cities have allowed the protests and riots to disturb and in many cases destroy business districts.

The idea of no police presence in these unruly cities creates a feeling of dread in the heart of law-abiding citizens as video after video reveals the violence committed in these cities. Even where there are police, people have been severely injured by violent rioters, and businesses have been burned, looted, and destroyed. Drivers have been pulled out of their cars and stomped. Truck drivers have also been attacked while trying to travel through those areas.

Now truck drivers are reconsidering their willingness to deliver to cities that have abolished or defunded the police. Many, almost 8 out of ten, aren’t willing to risk their loads, their trucks, or their lives to deliver in police-free zones.

79% of truckers say they will not deliver

According to CDLlife.com, truckers have been using an app to answer the question:

Would you pick up/deliver to cities with defunded or disbanded police departments? Why or why not?

The results, again from CDLLife.com are: As of June 13, 2020, we’ve had over 1,283 respondents and 79% say they will refuse loads to cities with disbanded or defunded police departments.

One respondent explained that for his own safety and the safety of his load, he would not deliver to cities that defund their police departments:

For my own safety and security of my customers’ loads, I have already informed my dispatcher that I will refuse all loads to cities that have defunded their police departments.

Another respondent brought up the harsh facts of delivering during the COVID-19 lockdowns compounded with the dangers of delivering to a city with a “disbanded” police department:

I will not deliver to an area with a disbanded police department. My life matter[s] and I do this for my family. We are already at the mercy of these towns and cities with laws and hate against us for parking, getting a meal or even using a restroom.

Once again, we can thank truckers bringing some perspective and reality to the discussion of defunding police departments.

The reality of no deliveries in police-free zones

The idea of dismantling police is nonsense. Cities cannot function without truckers bringing in thousands of tons of supplies every day. Cities like Los Angeles and Oakland need truckers to take goods from their ports, too. Most cities would rapidly collapse without those daily deliveries of essentials like food, fuel, medical supplies, and all the other items that keep them running.

Watch this mob drag a truck driver out of his truck and beat him. You can see that he was trying to be very careful not to run anyone over before they stopped him.

  1. I would not deliver to them defunded city’s either. Let them fend for themselves. Let’s see how long they can go without toilet paper haha

    1. That’s good. They won’t get NB any goods. Besides that, most of it people have no reason to protest other than to cause trouble. They don’t care about the guy who was shot.

    2. My son was a long hauler for years and he said never would he deliver to these loonies. Let them do without the items. They can go to china or Cuba and protest, sure they can! They need to be in jail. The mayors and libtard governors should be in jail with them.

      1. Yes, I agree. Do not deliver to those cities that allow the rioting (disguised as “protests”) to continue.

    3. DUMB FUKIN IDIOTS that have NO respect for life, liberty, property, the pursuit of happiness, law order or justice.

      When you riot, you loot – you are to be shot DEAD – NO TRIAL, NO JURY, kNOw mORe.

      1. THE ABOVE ABOUT OUR POLICE, AND ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT IS A VERY TRUE STATEMENT. NO OFFICER SHOULD HAVE TO FIGHT FOR HIS LIFE, AND THEN GET CHARGED FOR SAVING IT. ANY ONE IN ANYTHING THEY OWN ARE HAVE IS ALLOWED TO SHOOT SOME ONE TRYING TO HURT THEM ARE THEIR PROPERTY ARE FAMILIES. AND FIRE THE JUDGES THAT ARE WORKING FOR CASH. ARE HAVE CROSSED THE LINE AWAY FROM OUR RIGHTS AND LAWS.

    4. I AM SUPPER PROUD OF ONE GROUP THAT IS GOING TO STAND UP FOR WHAT THEY DO AND STAND PROUD. DON’T BOW TO ANYONE. I ALSO WANT THE UTILITIES ALL CUT OFF IN THE CITIES THAT HAVE BEEN TAKEN OUT OF THE LAWS OF THE USA.

  2. It’s time to defend ourselves America!!! Defund police citizens should arm, Resist & protect yourself if City & State Governments will not protect you!! November Election We MUST Vote these worthless “leaders” OUT of Office!!! Vote Straight GOP (Except Rinos) November 2020!!!

    1. Good. Now they won’t get any goods. Besides that I don’t think that the protesting is because of the guy who was shot. I believe it’s an excuse to destroy and steal from business.

        1. I’m with you Mandy, the democrats are working over time. They are paying these idiots to do this crap. It has nothing to do with Mr. Floyed the man who was shot.

        2. I TOTALLY BELIEVE T HEY ARE ALL BEING PAID CASH TO RIOT, LOOT AND KILL. I ALSO BACK ALL TRUCK DRIVERS. DO NOT DELIVER TO ANY CITY THAT DEFUNDS POLICE OR HONOR THE RIOTERS. THE MAYORS IN THOSE CITIES SHOULD BE TAKEN TO THESE AREAS. TOLD THAT IS YOUR ONE AND ONLY HOME FROM NOW ON.

  3. No sensible person should set foot in these cities that are being destroyed by liberal , criminal mobs . They deserve to dry up & fail from liberal democrat dictatorship !

  4. I don’t blame truck drivers for not delivering to areas without police protection. I wouldn’t either. If I had a say I would turn off all water, electricity and gas to these area. See how long they last then.

    1. SEEMS LIKE ALL THESE PEOPLE HAVE THE SAME IDEAL I HAVE. BUT BE SURE NO GOV. MONEY GETS SENT TO THESE TOWNS. AND CHECK THE BOOKS AND SEE HOW MANY IN THIS ATTACK ARE DRAWING GOV. SUPPORT, AND CUT IT OFF.
      GOD BLESS IDAHO FOR STANDING WITH THEIR POLICE TO MAKE A BIGGER STAND AGAINST THE OUT LAWS. AND ALSO TRACE BACK AND FIND OUT WHERE THE OUTLAWS ARE GETTING FOOD, SLEEP, RESTROOMS, ALL THE THINGS MOST PEOPLE WORK FOR.

    2. Amen, although many innocent individuals will be affected by the no electricity or water. They voted for those Democrats so you sleep with them, call them up and ask if you can stay with them.

  5. The truck drivers can’t take a chance on losing their life and their goods going into these cities that want to defund the police. Good for the truck drivers for not going into these areas. It is time that people stand up to these rioters and protestors being in the way of vehicles. If they can’t get food, etc., they will get tired of their stupid protesting for nothing – they are just being nasty wanting to loot businesses that have occurred from the sweat and work of hard working people trying to earn a decent living and for these animals coming in and looting and burning their businesses, it is a shame and disgrace. Yes, I called these looters and rioters animals as that is what they are acting like right now. They have apparently gone completely nuts, or they surely would not be doing such terrible things, and shame on them and they should not be getting away with such behavior.

  6. THOSE-SO-CALLED-‘HUMANS’-NEED TO ‘BE, RE-LABELED’! THEY ARE ‘NOT HUMAN’-THEY ARE ‘HYENAS’! ‘THEY-LIVE-TO ‘DESTROY’! EVEN THEIR OWN NEIGHBORHOODS & LOCAL SHOPS! NOW, ‘MOST EVERYONE, IN POLITICS & THE MEDIA-IS ‘PANDERING’-TO THOSE-WHO ARE ‘RIOTING & DESTROYING THEIR OWN NEIGHBORHOODS’. WE, WILL ‘SEE’-HOW LONG THAT LASTS-WHEN NO ‘DELIVERIES’-ARE MADE & ALL ‘SHOP OWNERS’-ARE ‘CLOSED FOR BUSINESS’!

  7. WHY, IS IT-THAT ‘EVERY SUMMER’-THE ‘HORDES’-DESCEND UPON AMERICA? THEY ARE NON-EXISTENT-IN THE ‘COLD MONTHS’! PERHAPS, AMERICA SHOULD ‘STAY COLD’-ALL YR. LONG-EVERY YR.-JUST TO, ‘PREVENT’-THE ‘HORDES’-FROM, ‘LOOTING & DESTROYING’ OUR TOWNS & CITIES! THOSE ‘MANGY/SCAVENGERS’-TRULY MUST BE ERADICATED-IF AMERICA, IS TO BE ‘FREE-FROM THOSE-‘LOCUSTS’!

  8. I have driven big rigs since 1976, and yes, I am a woman. my health forced me to retire in 2019. NO. I would not go to defunded, disbanded cities without law enforcement. why? they do not deserve the labors of my hard work. I would not stand idly by while I lost my truck, my livelihood, or my goods. WHY? because MY LIFE matters!!

  9. These men and women that deliver goods have the right to say no to lawless cities because that is exactly what they are. Truckers have families and if these city defund the police the cities will get even worse. I wouldn’t work in any of these defunded cities and I hope that every police officer leaves to find a better place to work. All these crappy cities are mostly democrat run. Let them rot in their own stupidity.

  10. So the Antifa “CHAZ” nation is riddled with rapes, robberies and violence. They claim it is a new freedom nation but attack anyone who does not agree with them and deport them. If that is what they call freedom I want no part of it. My family has not served in the military in orderr to live in a dictatorship where one lord of all decides what is allowed expressed and crime is the new freedom.

  11. My dad drive for 42 years and I would beg him not to deliver. I don’t think he would, but he was pretty proud of his job. My brother drive for 27 years. I know where he would tell them to put it!

  12. Hooray for the truckers! It appears that they have more sense than MANY city “leaders”! Hopefully, the voters will see the true character of their elected(?) officials.

  13. Why Not Cut Off Cell Phones, Water, Electricity, cut off Everything. We do not need to enable them to get their needs met. Let them Figure it out for Themselves.

  14. I agree with Bee, cut off all government support for individual rioters, and cities allowing it, these entitled, inconsiderate people should be learning how to behave, be productive, be honest, so they don’t have to be confronted by authority. How are they going to be the leaders of the future, if they
    don’t know how to behave, someone has to stop them, enough is enough, they made their point, in the meantime, they have caused black-owned businesses destruction, black people killed who were productive, decent human beings, why don’t they stop to see that.

  15. Long before that, Trump needs to take them down and also the treasonous governors AND mayors who allowed this to take place, and it WAS a deliberate choice — which IS treasonous — for which they need to be prosecuted.

  16. I agree with the 70% of truckers on delivery to cities that have defunded , dismantled OR abolished there Police departments !!!

  17. Good for the truckers. The percentage should be higher
    Why would any trucker deliver to these idiots

  18. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Liberal politicians in these cities will not face the wrath of the citizens that they serve when store shelves, that have not yet been burned to the ground, are suddenly devoid of supplies and gasoline is non-existent. Maybe now voters will wake up and stop putting bonehead Democrats into office.

  19. I agree with the Truckers. I would not deliver to anyplace that does not have an active POLICE FORCE to protect from rioters and looters. There has already been a Trucker pulled from his truck and beaten very badly.
    If the Police aren’t protecting their citizens I don’t believe they protect the Truckers either.

  20. I hope the Truck Drivers stick to this – not delivering to cities that have no police or those who have cut their budgets. Let these imbeciles fight each other for the scrapes that may been left over from their protesting. Or, let them starve – it might do them so good. I doubt it though, they are so far gone that it will take a miracle to shake these fools and realize which end is up.
