Black Lives Matter to Hold Another “Defund the Police” Protest in Boise

By • July 14, 2020

Protests continue across the country over the funding of police from Black Lives Matter protesters.

Recently, Idaho had its first protest in Boise over the funding of the Boise Police Department. The protest garnered state-wide attention for the tension between protesters and counter-protesters.

Police are still investigating alleged physical altercations between the two groups.

Now, Boise’s chapter of Black Lives Matter has announced they will hold another protest to “Defund the Police.”

The new protest will occur on July 21st. However, it is unclear where exactly the protest will take place.

A meme with the protest date was announced on BLM Boise’s Facebook page. It is believed that the protest will be in Boise and likely at Boise City Hall.

The exact time and location will be posted here if the Black Lives Matter organization responds to our inquiry or if they post an update.

A counter-protest is also expected on the same day by the group, “Idaho Liberty Dogs.”

The group was one of several that counter-protested the first “Defund the Police” protest back on June 30th.

We asked the Idaho Liberty Dogs why they are counter-protesting again. Additionally, we asked them what they want law enforcement to know about their efforts.

They said in a statement to Idaho Dispatch,

We’re counter-protesting to let our city officials know that we do not agree with defunding our police department agencies. Our cities are growing day by day and with that will come more crime. The resources to fund these and other programs such as social services, should come from somewhere else. Instead of defunding, raise the budget to provide for additional services. We intend to counter all Defund Police protest. We want our LE to know that we need them and appreciate them. We do not agree with lawlessness and we the citizens of ID will defend our LEOs.

Idaho Dispatch will be on the ground on July 21st to report on what we see happening. Our goal is to cover both sides and try to interview several people to get their opinions on the issue of “Defunding the Police.”

    1. I have heard the the people behind the BLM is Humus terrorists and the HIGH UP Democrats. They ALL need to be arrested for treason! ✝

  1. Let’s keep the pressure on these BLM terrorists! We need lots of patriots to attend to keep the rioters from tearing down Boise!

    1. Do they not get Idaho?? The majority of these people have to be coming from somewhere else. We are conservative, love our LEOs and 2A. We can’t let these libtards destroy our beautiful state!!!

      1. At least some of them are from Idaho, because there’s no other excuse for the piece of shit that got elected mayor

  2. Black Lives Matter is nothing but a terrorist organization bent on destroying America and law abiding citizens property rights as well as endangering lives. If you come to Idaho, BLM, be prepared for people to stand and fight you and your protest because we won’t put up with any of the crap you have thrown at other cities around our nation. We can open carry and protect our lives, property, business and family. Don’t think Idaho is New York or Los Angeles or Atlanta or other democratic run areas that will let you run amok.

  3. I hope Idaho Patriots come out in support of our Police and the safety of this wonderful state and way out number the radical BLM group

  4. This is such a ridiculous waste of resources and time. Certainly, the “brains?” behind the blm movement know that there will NEVER, EVER be a city with a population in excess of a few hundred that will be able to function without law enforcement. Even the very best of people will still need some form of law enforcement, if for nothing else than aiding in emergencies and collecting money from traffic laws and local ordinances. The “muscle?” behind the movement, the individuals out violently protesting are likely paid, and the do gooders that want to show their support because the media tells the too probably haven’t thought that part out very clearly. As the movement is admittedly Marxist, their goal in removing the funding for local leos is clearly an increase in crime and violence that will force the federal government’s hand to implement federal law enforcement nationally. If we look at how many county sheriffs nation wide, and police chiefs, have vowed to not enforce, or, support unconstitutional 2nd amendment and other laws you see the desire for this and why it is that many, certain cities, are allowing this to go on. Sadly, the individuals of the silent majority who are either guilted into remaining silent, or are just trying to give everyone their chance to “peacefully protest”, will be the ones who will see what happens when local law enforcement is taken out of the hands of their elected officials. We are standing on the cusp of totalitarianism unlike what most of us have ever witnessed personally. And all in the name of anti racism brought on by a criminal fighting a group of police made up of several races, in a nation where the statistics don’t support agenda.

  5. BLM IS A MARXIST GROUP…THEIR GOAL IS TO DESTROY AMERICA…TO TERRORIZE CITIZENS AND BRAINWASH THOSE WITH ALREADY GOOD INTENTIONS TO DO BAD THINGS LIKE DESTRUCTION AND HURTING PEOPLE THAT THEY WOULD NOT NORMALLY DO ON THEIR OWN.

    NOW THEIR GOAL IS BOISE…TO TRY AND BEGIN THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR WONDERFUL STATE AND INFECT IT WITH THEIR DESTRUCTIVE IDEOLOGY…THIS IS NOT ABOUT FLOYD OR SLAVERY, ITS ABOUT DESTROYING IDAHO!!!

  6. To all the pretty white HS and BSU girls going to support the Defund the Police rally. “Deflowering follows Defunding” Let that sink in.

  7. This is a test case to make people afraid to defend themselves. It looks like the battle for the soul of America begins in Idaho. Patriots will rise up and stop this Marxist anarchists aggression.

  8. Thank goodness for people like Greg Pruett for keeping us informed as to the non contributors to societies insane activities. Idaho let’s show the rest of the USA how to handle these ungratefuls.

  9. For those attempting to ‘reason with’ or find any ‘reasoning’ behind BLM or their actions: … BLM desires to destroy U.S. no matter the cost. BLM is a working arm of Islam who seeks world domination.
    You CANNOT ‘reason’ with super diehard radicals. They only understand one thing ……. and they use it on innocent civilians and property every single day.

  10. this defund the police protest cannot be people from Idaho..if it is we need to root them out post their names and embarrass them at the least run them out of town.
    we need police and they deserve More funds not less we need More police

  11. This is not California, Portland or Seattle. In Idaho, we treasure our freedom, our constitutional rights and our LEOs. It warms my heart to see all of your posts. Please show up and let the anarchists know they won’t get an inch of Idaho!
