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.

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

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.

The controlled demolition of New York continues. Believe it or not, but adding to their many concerns, New Yorkers are now dealing with moped-riding gangs of phone snatchers. It sounds funny but it’s much crazier than it sounds; the mopeds race the phones directly to hacker hideouts, where the stolen phones are electronically hijacked and people’s bank accounts are being looted.

I will bet you a thousand bucks the mopeds are unlicensed and untraceable, just as untraceable as the undocumented, ganged-up riders. Oh, and they are also killing cops now:




Cop assassinations are a deliberate strategy. Once the gangs intimidate the local cops, they can run the city.

I expect to see a strong response in Miami. I’m not too sure about New York.

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.


I'm always perplexed that people think they VOTED this way. No way to validate the vote, we've seen voter fraud before, and we'll see it again, it remains unpunished, and it's not treated seriously.

Yet you're absolutely convinced people voted for this shit.

Go to San Francisco, ask anybody there i if they voted for Nancy Pelosi and if they did, ask them who was running against her. I would bet $1000 they can't name any challenger, if one was even offered.

First I won't go to San Fran again in my life. Even the airport.

I literally meet at least with local reps. Federal and state. I would have been able to meet with Pelosi's opponent. Do these things. Ain't nothing gonna happen bitching on the internet.

This is where you frustrate me Rich. I love Patnet and the dialogue is fun and sometimes nasty, oh well. But if you're not PHYSICALLY doing anything it's a waste. Go to events. Set up a meeting with your leadership statewide or nationally. Go to events you know they're going to be at. I've got one March 2nd where I can talk to 100's of prominent people and government officials and have some beers. They'll be drinking too so all the easier. 10 discussions could change 1 person and that one prominent person can change 100 or 1,000.

I give no fucks about what I say. Pisses the wife off, but sometimes people are like, shit, this guy was right. I'm independent/libertarian. I can convince almost any left person or right person to reach a middle ground. You're a fatalist. Everything and everyone is fucked... yet you don't do shit about it. Unless you lost it, maybe use the thumb instead of bitching and finger pointing.

Following the shining example of Oakland, CA; Pittsburgh has decided to not have officers respond to certain calls like theft, robbery, stuff like that. What could go wrong???

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/pittsburgh-police-won-t-send-officers-to-certain-emergency-calls-will-redirect-to-telephone-unit/ar-BB1iYHUC?ocid=hpmsn&cvid=9655458134fb45cd832ca73b51f7e41e&ei=36

It just saves the step of the DA just letting go.

Not to be outdone Houston police have simply blown off 264000 investigations over the last 8 years with 164000 of those being cases against people like robbery and assault. Thousands of adult sex crimes - well who cares ???

Appealing to the government accomplishes nothing.

What people don't seem to understand, is that they have literally no representation, at all, and THAT is the problem. Ignorance is the problem.

The reason people masked up and took an injection, is because they are ignorant.

https://boriquagato.substack.com/p/the-demoralization-of-surrender





seriously, just stop for one minute and really consider this:

dear citizen, our city has roving bands of violent thieves breaking into homes. mostly they just want your car. so leave your car keys out like milk and pastries for santa and perhaps the robbers will stop in the foyer and not come into the rest of your house to steal the rest of your things and menace you and/or your family.

let that one sink in. ...

this is just horrific. it’s not even remotely sane or reasonable. it’s not productive. every single thing about it is calculated to not only make you feel unsafe but to make those who would prey upon you feel safer.

it’s surrender.

you’re to hide, defenseless in your home, cowering and offering up tribute to the roving gangs of brigands that they might be satiated and leave the TV alone. the fact that you could be defended or defend yourself is not even considered…

time after time, “crime waves” like this are found to be perpetuated by small groups of people who commit A LOT of crimes. when the lojack system rolled out, it rapidly resulted in the capture of the big auto theft rings and after a very small number of arrests, overall auto theft collapsed to the point where the lojack system itself failed as a business because it had eradicated its own market demand by working too well. ...

consider the solution that the toronto PD is not suggesting (apart from doing their own job):

get yourself a pump action shotgun. learn to use it. keep it handy. if someone breaks in your door, let them hear you rack it. if this does not deter them, then defend your home as you see fit. castle doctrine is truly the only just law of any land in this regard. if you come and try to take from me that which is mine, you have stepped outside the social contract and my rights to property and self-defense now stand paramount.





This is one reason I myself have a pump-action shotgun at home.

Many people are naive and don't trust their own conclusions and thinking and defer to authorities and won't accept information not handed to them unless it's from "authorities".

Now why they are like this, you can ascribe to either stupidity or ignorance. There ARE people that can be pulled out of the matrix of brainwashing. Others, there are hopeless. People beyond a certain age shouldn't be pulled out.

Man Shot in Head on NYC Subway, Passengers Sent Scrambling to Escape

ZeroHedge ran a creepy story yesterday headlined, “"What Are We Doing?" Ana Kasparian Flips Out After Suspects In Murder, Dismemberment Case Released In New York.” Yep. It’s just as demonic as it sounds. It’s the latest, and worst, squatter story yet, involving meat cleavers, body parts, so much blood officials condemned the home, and all that with zero bail required from the promptly-released criminals.

Bail shouldn’t even have on been on the table. New York’s mentally-handicapped democrat officials have lost their ever-loving minds. ...

Kasperian, a popular local news commenter in New York, was once an all-in “progressive.” But she has been steadily red-pilled by the nonstop series of lunatic blue policies since the pandemic. At one point in her highly-animated commentary, Kasperian howled, “If being on the left means supporting this, then I’m not on the left, and I’m okay with that. What are we doing? What are we doing Jake? What the F- are we doing?”

The story was that four squatters were recently arrested in a New York home after being accused of dismembering two adult bodies so gruesomely that "there was so much blood in pipes, sink, shower and toilet… that it was deemed uninhabitable.” They were inhabiting the home anyway. Worst of all, after their arrest, the four involved were immediately released, thanks to the state’s ‘progressive’ bail reform laws.

The arrestees were not charged with murder, for some inexplicable reason, except for the obvious possibility that a murder charge would have required bail.

Under New York’s 2019 bail reform laws, charges of mutilation and disposing of murdered corpses are no longer bail eligible. Prosecutors cannot ask for bail, and suspects cannot be remanded to custody.

So.

In 2019 LAPD had 9800+ police officers.

Today the number on paper is 8866. The truth is much worse.

Imagine a station that covers 200,000 people having two….TWO….cops on patrol…in one car.

A city the size of Pomona, Pasadena, San Bernadino, Lancaster….having ONE patrol car serving the entire city.

That’s where LAPD currently stands. What do you think a cop thinks when they know if they make a traffic stop it will take backup 15 minutes to arrive?

Current academy classes are completing at less than half the rate of attrition. And of those, more than half intend to leave in less than 3 years.

This is one of the very largest departments in the nation, and the one that all eyes are on. And it’s failing.

Good job Democrats and their mouth breathing voters. You sure showed us.
