Liberals in big cities are finally starting to figure out what the police are for. Violent crime in several of their cities has risen in the last year.
What’s the reason for this rise? Well, those are the cities that bought into the “Defund the Police” idea. The left apparently had no idea that having a well-funded police force puts a stop to crime. They live in a fantasy world where people will just be nicer if you ask them to do so.
“The violence needs to stop, its unacceptable. People deserve to feel safe in their neighborhood, they deserve to be able to send their kids out to the sidewalk to play and to recreate without bullets flying by. That’s unacceptable. We should be holding these perpetrators accountable,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, a Democrat, said at a May 7 news conference addressing a spate of violence that ripped through the city.
Frey put much of the blame of rising crime rates on activists’ calls to defund the police in the wake of George Floyd’s death. Floyd’s death last year kicked off massive riots and calls to redirect police funding toward social programs. Violent crime surged 21% in Minneapolis last year, and the trend is threatening to continue through 2021.Daily Wire
We told them this is exactly what would happen! They wanted to take their little experiment to the entire country, but Thankfully Republicans wouldn’t move aside. If they did, the woke machine would have let criminals run wild on all of us.
Portland has been having a heck of a time too, if recent videos are any indication. After officials decided to defund the police, Los Angeles’ crime rate has shot up 36%. You have to wonder how their politicians didn’t know this would happen. They were probably trying so hard to “keep an open mind” that their brains fell out.
When it comes right down to it, though, Democrats will still make sure they get police protection for themselves. They just would rather your families didn’t. More criminals being allow to get away with crimes means more left-wing votes!
