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.

I apologize if this has been mentioned or asked, but why does the other woman, an African American, approach after the victim is on the ground and his girlfriend Morales is staring at him and saying "I'm so sorry".

So she is apologizing for the suspect because she knows him ?

This came from The Sun and it seems to be enough quality for someone to recognize this suspect.

A George Soros-funded prosecutor has been carjacked at gunpoint in his own Democrat-controlled city of New Orleans.

According to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD), the city’s Democrat District Attorney Jason Williams was robbed on Monday.

Williams was walking his 78-year-old mother to his car when two suspects approached the pair.

They pointed a gun at them and demanded the prosecutor’s car, according to WVUE.

The suspects then jumped into the car and drove off. ...

The DA was elected in 2020 after Soros donated $220,000 to sway the election in his favor, according to the Capital Research Center.

Soros pumped cash into the Louisiana Justice and Public Safety PAC to run campaigns against Williams’ opponent.

Williams campaigned on a platform of “woke” social justice reform, promising to find “alternatives to incarceration” for some criminals.

He also pledged to reform the “ineffective and unfair money bail system,” according to his campaign website.

Williams also attacked President Donald Trump during his campaign in 2020. ...

Williams declined to prosecute 65% of all criminal cases in New Orleans in 2021.

However, he slowly began to prosecute more cases as crime in the city rose, according to data from the New Orleans government’s office.

The DA still continues to prosecute, on average, only 44% of the criminals who have been charged by police.

In 2022, New Orleans was named the “murder capital of the United States.”

Violent crime was the leading cause of death for children in the city that same year.

Reality strikes! National Review ran a very encouraging story yesterday headlined, “D.C. Mayor Introduces ‘Commonsense’ Legislation to Tackle Rising Crime.” Get this: they are re-funding the police.

Yesterday, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser introduced new proposals to roll back progressive police reforms that Bowser said make it more difficult for police to ensure public safety. “We have to reverse the policy environment in the city that, quite frankly, went haywire in the last three years,” Bowser explained.

Note the passive voice. The policy environment went haywire. Not anybody in particular.

A CVS location in Washington DC was forced to wipe its shelves clean of toilet paper and replace them instead with framed photos of the products amid rising thefts in the country’s capital, according to a report.

It takes a real sociopath to cause that much damage just to steal some cash. Reminds me of an incident where an asshole used a chainsaw to cut a radio out of a dashboard so he could fence it for a few bucks.

billionaires benefit, because they can buy up expensive downtown real estate on the cheap as property values plummet,

Where is any property values plummeting?

One of the most ironic headlines of 2023 had to be this week’s Epoch Times headline:




The agent is fine. But the FBI apparently can’t find the two armed carjackers by itself, so it has offered a $10,000 reward to any citizen who can identify the two thugs who jacked one of its own agents. The agent was probably too distracted by his grief over the January 6th attack on the Capitol to fight back.

Its hard to fathom how people that vote liberal leave liberal areas such as California for greener pastures in red areas, but are incapable of figuring out that their liberal voting turned the place they just escaped from into a hell hole and continue to vote the same liberal way. Then when the new location, such as Portland or Austin (that used to be red areas many moons ago) turns into a similar lib shit hole they cant put two and two together and get a logical number.

Surprise, surprise, this incompetent diversity hire (but I repeat myself) was funded by global criminal Soros:

Been saying this forever. Get the fuck out of blue cities and if you can states. My area locally is red, but I'm unfortunate in a Blue state and make too good of money to leave. Almost any profession can make as much or more in a red state. Just don't bring bull shit with you.

One dude once said that there are no red or blue states. Just blue urban areas with concentrated population areas with otherwise red rural areas in the state. There are exceptions like really tiny states (Rhode Island, Delaware maybe even Massachusetts & Connecticut).

Unfortunately the dumbasses in the blue cities outvote the red rurals.
.
Boise is not very popular with the rest of Idaho because of this.

So the true hell is being someone who lives in a red part of a bluetard dominated state. Eastern Oregon & Washington, Northern California. Much of New Mexico and now Arizona and Colorado. Texas is going purple too.

So when the next Civil War does happen, the cities will be sieged or otherwise cut off from their food, water and energy supplies. Game over. It won't be a war with tanks and fighter jets. Libtards don't get that.
