... pride zealots got what they asked for which is a police free event. Classic example of "reaping what you sow".

This is absolutely wrong, to my understanding:

There are 3 ways police appear at pride:

1) Off-hours out of uniform on their own time
2) On-hours, paid to keep the peace and do their jobs
3) Marching in the parade as ambassadors of police goodwill

My understanding is that 3) is the only presence that was rejected by organizers in various jurisdictions.
