Talking to Joe Rogan Experience, singer David Lee Roth talked about things that bothers him a lot, adding here the “defund the police” movement among them.
The singer said:
“I stopped being pissed on my behalf a long time ago. I’m angry on behalf of future generations. What kind of f*ck-s*it world are we leaving behind where they don’t get to go to Florida because it’s underwater?
“What kind of place are we going where? Yeah, there used to be some really great, giant trees now, but they’re dead?
“Are we still arguing over women’s rights? Are we still struggling over Roe v. Wade? Really?”
“The idea that we’re going to defund the police? And expect what? You gotta be crazy. So here’s your solution – and that we haven’t gotten to it is starting to fucking piss me off…
“You got to triple the paychecks, and then you’ll start getting the genius-level, combat-proof, full-blast, industrial-strength brains.
“Because you’re gonna have to be a psychiatrist, a social worker, a Delta team member, a SWAT team fella, all in one. I can get you that. Let’s start with $3,500 a week.
“Police chiefs should be making what that grubby, f*ck-s*it lawyer down the street makes, which is $300 an hour. Yeah, an hour! And now, once you’ve established some proper, thoughtful paychecks. I have some reforms.”
