Fire those workers who support Defunding the Police AND HIRE VETERANS AND US CITIZENS!
This virtue-signalling is stupid because workers never demand layoffs. These Ford employees must not work on the assembly line where these cars are built. I'm sure those employees would like to keep their jobs.
Dumbfuck, slack-jawed, mouthbreathing Union members.
Throughout history, the vehicles that Ford employees design and build have been used as accessories to police brutality and oppression... We know that while many join, support or supply law enforcement with good intentions, these racist policing practices that plague our society are historic and systemic -- a history and system perpetuated by Ford for over 70 years -- ever since Ford introduced the first-ever police package in 1950. As an undeniable part of that history and system, we are long overdue to "think and act differently" on our role in racism.
Grown up adult CEO of a big boy company.
By taking away our Police Interceptors, we would be doing harm to their safety and making it harder for them to do their job. Again, this is why, given our insights, new capabilities and leadership, I believe these unfortunate circumstances present Ford with an even greater opportunity to not only innovate new solutions but also leverage our unique position to support the dialogue and reform needed to create safer communities for all.
Shorter version: No. We're not going to stop making police cars. Now get back to work...
