Gov. Youngkin Just Made a Huge Symbolic Move in Favor of Law Enforcement

How blessed the Old Dominion is to have Gov. Youngkin as governor rather than some far-left loon of the sort it might have had were it not for the left’s complete and total meltdown in favor of all those aspects of the culture war that make parents detest the left!

While Gov. Youngkin is perhaps best known for his stance on schools and his unrepentant, unending war on critical race theory and leftist propaganda in Virginia’s schools, particularly that propaganda having to do with transgenderism, he’s also pro-police, again unlike the Democrats that might otherwise be in control. He announced as much during his campaign, saying:

We are going to stand up for law enforcement. They’re heroes who go to work every day in order to keep Virginia safe and they are going to know their governor has their back …We’re going to get it done when I’m elected governor and I can’t wait to go serve all Virginians.”

He recently showed his pro-police stance by donating his first-quarter salary to a law enforcement initiative, as his office announced in a press conference, saying:

Governor Glenn Youngkin today announced that he will donate his first-quarter salary to the Virginia Law Enforcement Assistance Program, an organization dedicated to helping law enforcement officers and first responders who have undergone traumatic critical incidents in the line of duty or in their personal lives.

During his 2021 campaign, the Governor pledged to donate his gubernatorial salary. Today, he announced the donation of $43,750 at VALEAP’s Post Critical Incident Seminar in Harrisonburg, Va.

Governor Youngkin himself, speaking on the subject, said:

I pledged to serve our Commonwealth without accepting a salary because I want to continue giving back to the Commonwealth and helping Virginians in every way I can,

“I have chosen to donate my salary to the Virginia Law Enforcement Assistance Program (VALEAP) because of their important mission to assist law enforcement personnel and first responders who have undergone traumatic critical incidents. This reaffirms my ongoing commitment to support our men and women in law enforcement with mental health resources, training, and equipment to ensure that we are serving those that protect our communities across the Commonwealth.

According to the link provided by the Governor’s office in the press statement, VALEAP has VALEAP has served “more than 500 officers from over 60 Virginia agencies and trained over 150 law enforcement peers to date” since it was founded in 2008.

In doing that, Governor Youngkin is emulating former President Trump, who famously donated his salary to worthy causes rather than keep taxpayer money. He donated all $1.6 million that he received during his four years in office, money that didn’t mean much to someone of his financial level but was undoubtedly helpful to the charities he donated it to. Further, his refusal to accept a check, like Youngkin’s similar refusal to do so, showed that he was intent on serving the people rather than profiting off the presidency.

Junior motorcyclist Ilfracombe involved in the historic dead heat

The junior motorcycle rider from Ilfracombe, Devon, has been involved in the first dead ride in a British Championship race since 1995.

In 2022, Honda Talent Cup competitor at Donington Park in Leicestershire, 13-year-old Johnny Garness crossed the line at exactly the same time as MLav VisionTrack Academy teammate Carter Brown, and the photofinish failed to separate the two riders.

Johnny Garness fought for the lead throughout the race, but after moving to the lead, it was a MLav VisionTrack Academy duel that went to the final bullying and to the front.

After 22 laps of action racing, timekeeping monitors confirmed that there was a 0.000 second difference between the riders on the track, confirming the tightest position in the British Superbike paddock in twenty-seven years of racing.

Johnny Garness said after the race: “It was great fun! So much happened during the race that I just focused on staying at the top of the pack.”

“When I crossed the line, I wasn’t sure who won, but I was so happy to be on the top step with my teammate Carter.”
