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 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.


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.

Don't you mean 'because they are fucking morons'?

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.

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.

Just wait until LA states filling these positions with illegals. Hello 3rd world style protection rackets and extortion traffic stops.

This is the fault of our judicial system.

The criminal is at fault too, but there was no opportunity with a functioning judicial system.

The "machine gun" was a Glock with a switch that effectively turns it into a fully auto pistol. This switch is illegal for anyone to possess. The judge that tuned this criminal loose without bail shout be removed.

Police in LA raid warehouse FILLED with shoplifted goods ...

Wal-Mart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens all sent their own investigators to figure out which products, of the $100,000+ bust, belong to which stores.

"This is random because it's all stolen products so you see everything from food products, household products, everything you can think of that's stolen," says Captain Calvin Mah from the LA County Sheriff's department.

What's even crazier is that Los Angeles has become such a hub for crime that thieves from across the southwest are using LA as a sort of distribution center for stolen products.

The sheriff's department got information from investigators for CVS. The haul includes more than $100,000 in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics taken from stores in Arizona, Nevada and California.


Epidemic crime is a direct and inevitable result of electing liberals.
