What is it about radical leftists who engage in criminal activity while demanding we defund the police? Is it part of some self-serving escape mechanism that allows them to justify their crimes by blaming cops? The latest example took a sick turn when it was revealed a former Democratic Mayor in California has been charged with 11 counts of sexual assault crimes against children.
Robert Emmanuel Jacob was arrested last week on 11 felony counts. Ironically, he has been among the most vocal in blaming law enforcement for pretty much everything while calling on them to get defunded. Now, it appears we know why he wanted law enforcement to be hampered as he allegedly victimized young boys.
As The Post Millennial reported:
The former mayor of Sebastopol, Cal., a progressive Democrat who voiced support for Black Lives Matter rioters and defunding police, was arrested Saturday morning over multiple felony child sex crimes.
Sebastopol Police booked 44-year-old Robert Emmanuel Jacob on 11 felony counts related to sexual assault crimes against a minor aged 14 or 15.
The charges against Jacob, who is openly gay and married as of 2019, include transportation of a child for lewd and lascivious acts, arranging a meeting for sexual purposes with a person believed to be underage, sexual penetration of a child under 16-years-old and harmful material sent with the intent to seduce a minor.
According to law enforcement, the child sex abuse may have begun in December 2019 and continued through March 2021.
“Violence is what it takes to win wars,” Jacob, who also often criticized former President Donald Trump, wrote on Facebook during the riots last summer. “The police beat people daily and kill them regularly, but that’s acceptable.”
In another post the same month, Jacob advocated for defunding police. “Defunding is about re-funding,” he wrote on Facebook. “Defund the police to re-fund the resources we’ve been slashing for generations.” He also praised Minneapolis’ city council for promising to dismantle its police department.
When you see a radical progressive calling to defund police, ask yourself if they’re actually trying to protect themselves from being caught in their own crimes. If Robert Emmanuel Jacob is found guilty, we’ll know why he has been so opposed to the law.
