U.S. cities that virtue signaled by defunding their police departments are seeing record crime levels, forcing many city leaders to rethink their basic levels of intelligence.

Here's what has happened in a few cities that voted to slash police budgets:

Homicide grew by 44% in New York, which had 1,531 shootings and 462 murders in 2020.
Homicides also increased 36% in L.A. to 350, leading the police chief to say "a decade of progress" has been erased.
Minneapolis, the center of the "Defund the Police" movement, saw a 46% increase in murders.
Oakland, California has seen a staggering 314% increase in homicides.
Portland, Oregon has seen murders triple.
Austin, Texas has had a 26% increase in aggravated assault reports.
Chicago saw a 65% increase in homicides from June 2020 to February 2021, despite arrests dropping 53%.
Philadelphia hit a 30-year-high with homicides in 2020, with 499 people murdered.
Even smaller cities like Louisville, Kentucky had a record high of 173 murders and is on track to surpass that this year.
The New York Times reported that many such cities are now expanding their police budgets to try to deal with these outcomes that absolutely no one could have seen coming.

Maybe prosecutors should not have the right to nullify any laws they choose by declining to prosecute whatever they feel like.

And judges should be told by legislature what legal philosophy to use. There's no reason Congress can't legislate originalism.

Yes, but each business they shut down deprives themselves of revenue and makes them weaker.

Notice the officials were not worried about depriving themselves of revenue during the plandemic forced shutdowns. Also, such officials are short sighted. True, shutting down a business and seizing its assets will destroy future tax revenue from that business, but the officials will gladly make that trade to get their money for today and punish someone for defying them.

Medical triage in Chicago is not answering emergency calls for gunshots in the known areas for two hours. If they survive the bleed out, they will take them to the emergency room.

I saw a black lady cuss out a man at the emergency room for trying to be a hero and 'saving' a gunshot whomper too early. Maybe they will extend the bleed out time to three hours.

It appears that the fake-news and their handlers (Democrats) are blaming Trump and the Republicans. Unfortunately, there are plenty of people who believe this story.

Nope. Governmental policy setting falls under sovereign immunity. Courts have long held that the avenue to address that is at the voting booth.

I think FL governator/legislature passed a law that cities who allow burn loot and murder activities are liable for damages to businesses.

A man whose ingenious pop-up swimming pool kept the homeless cool during the recent heat wave was fatally stabbed in the same spot just one day later, according to Portland police.

Officers identified Tyson L. Morlock as the man who was found stabbed in the inner eastside Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood at Division Street and Southeast Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard around 3:37 a.m. on Thursday, July 1.

Despite life-saving efforts from paramedics, he died shortly thereafter in a nearby hospital, according to authorities.

Homicide detectives say the person who stabbed Morlock remained at the scene and was interviewed, but "has not been charged at this time and we are not releasing his name."

... Morlock hooked up the pool to a fire hydrant at the Division Street underpass of Highway 99E, which is also known as Martin Luther King Boulevard.

"Morlock said he 'tried to steal' a slurpee from 7-11 this weekend...


The guy was a model citizen: stealing water, stealing slurpees....

The surge in crime is finally starting to affect Washington’s cozy and wealthy elite...

The left will blame this rise in crime on the alleged proliferation of firearms — Jen Psaki did just that today. They will not tell you that DC already has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, or that the recent shootings that wounded innocent bystanders appeared to be gang-related. Their response to this rise in crime will be to crack down on legal gun owners and manufacturers. President Joe Biden recently suggested allowing people to sue gun-makers for liability when someone uses one of their firearms to commit a crime. This approach will do little to stop the crime surge that is occurring in DC and in other major cities across the country.

https://notthebee.com/article/democrat-cities-nationwide-spent-millions-on-private-security-for-their-democrat-mayors

Democrat politicians in 20 U.S. cities, many of whom have cut police funding, have reportedly spent MILLIONS of taxpayer dollars on their private security (i.e., police protection).

I don't think you'll be surprised by which cities and their clown mayors made the list.

Chicago, Illinois | Mayor Lori Lightfoot
Cut 400 police officers in 2020
Spent $6.2 million on police protection from 2019 to 2020
New York City | Mayor Bill de Blasio
The city council approved reducing the police budget from $6 billion to $1 billion in 2020
Spent $358,000 on police protection for his presidential bid from 2019 to 2020
San Francisco, California | Mayor London Breed
Said the city would divert $120 million from law enforcement in 2020
Spent $7.8 million on police protection from 2018 to 2020
Baltimore, Maryland | Mayor Brendon Scott
Police budget cut by $22 million in 2020
Spent $3.6 million on police protection for Scott, State Attorney Marilyn Mosby, and Police Commissioner Michael Harrison in 2020
San Diego, California | Todd Gloria
Reportedly pushed for $4.3 million cut from police overtime budget
Spent $2.6 million on police protection in 2020
These city politicians don't want to abolish/defund/downsize the police's service for themselves.

That's the hypocrisy.

Not only do they want to defund the police, they want to take away your ability to protect yourself from crime, as well.

You know, way back when, corrupt mayor Alioto would withdraw police protection from an SF neighborhood, wait until crime got so out of control that real estate prices went down, buy up property, put back the police, and then sell for a profit.

Maybe we are seeing the same thing right now, but on a much larger scale.

Chicago cops TURNED THEIR BACKS on Mayor Lightfoot as she tried to greet them at the hospital after their fellow officer was killed during a traffic stop





This is a very hopeful development.

When all the police are fed up with leftism, then we will be free.
