We live in a democratic society. When events such as this occur all factors must be considered before a fair and balanced administration of justice is applied. We are in danger of living in a fascist society without such safe-guards in place. Withdrawing federal funding from cities would serve (2) disadvantages first it leaves the president without other options in the future to intelligently negotiate other disagreements with cities or other large group of citizen, secondly, there many constituents who are considered innocent bystanders of this type authoritarian "knee-jerk" or thoughtless behavior. Children , if the money goes to schools , hospitalized or dead people if a bridge collapses hence injuring the innocent or countless other victims all because of lack of patience shown by a president of these United States who wants to be known for his ability to negotiate and compromise but practically is showing that there's need for negotiation in this case. He needs to step back and take a look at who may be adversely affected by his actions and think before rushing to judgement. The gravity of his office requires it and the citizenry of this democracy demands it and Constitution upholds it!!!!!!!!!!
