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 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.

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.


It’s already happening.

Wow. Ever driven in Mexico? Be prepared to pay the cop directly for any traffic violations.

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.

https://notthebee.com/article/manager-fired-by-big-lots-after-20-years-for-following-a-shoplifter-who-assaulted-one-of-his-employees


What happens at Big Lots when you pursue a shoplifter who has assaulted one of your employees and then report the shoplifting assaulter to the police?

You get fired, that's what happens. At least in New York.

Yes, Pat Guider lets shoplifters exit his store all the time. It's the store's policy; they simply document the shoplifting and move on. But this time was different. Guider witnessed a shoplifter take a swing at one of his employees, so he called the police and followed the shoplifter at a distance once he left the store.

And apparently this was too much for Big Lots, because they fired him for it.

Pat Guider, a manager at a Big Lots store in New York, was terminated after over 20 years of service for pursuing a shoplifter who assaulted an employee and then informing the police about the incident.

On May 10, Guider witnessed a shoplifter swing a punch at his assistant manager while attempting to leave the store. Concerned for the safety of his team, Guider followed the assailant at a distance through the parking lot while providing updates to 911. Two weeks after the incident, Guider was summoned to his district manager's office and informed of his termination. He expressed frustration over the decision, maintaining that he acted correctly in response to a violent situation.

Although Big Lots has not commented specifically on Guider's case, the company has a policy displayed in-store prohibiting employees from leaving the premises to pursue or detain customers. However, Guider defended his actions, emphasizing that he did not endanger the store or any customers who were present at the time.


We need to return to shooting shoplifters on sight.

And there should be large cash rewards to anyone who shoots the shoplifter.

Criminals are drafted soldiers in the demoralization and terrorizing of the populace. As per Stalin, you don't terrorize the populace by persecuting the guilty. You terrorize the population by persecuting the innocent. The Soros Fecal Impaction DA's are Stalinist terror tools.

Secret Service member robbed at gunpoint during Biden’s weekend California trip


https://www.coffeeandcovid.com/p/behave-tuesday-june-18-2024-c-and


The public wants to help. But we are hamstrung, though, because media isn’t providing much detail about the humiliating incident, for obvious reasons. Mostly political. The Hill didn’t disclose the Agent’s gender, referring to him or her as “them” and “they.” Maybe it’s fair, though, since these days you can’t just assume a Secret Service Agent’s gender regardless of which equipment was installed at birth.

Reading the details of that The Hill article, I infer that a female SS agent had her purse stolen.

Mob ravages California mini-mart during flash robbery near airport, shocking video shows

The gas station's owner said several hours passed before police responded to the crime

Dozens of people ransacked a gas station mini-mart near the San Francisco Bay Oakland International Airport in Oakland, California, early Friday morning, leaving the store destroyed.

Shocking surveillance video shows suspects in a flash mob tearing apart the store as they rifled through the refrigerated section and shelves, smashed items and filled shopping baskets full of loot.

Sam Mardaie, the owner of the 76 Gas Station & Mini Market on Hegenberger Road, told FOX 2 the thieves caused an estimated $100,000 in damage at the store and that they threatened two employees working at the time.

Oops, posted this in it's own threat.

Imagine what would happen if the US Grid went down. Even if it was limited to a coast or a region of the coast, it would look like this in the cities.

Yup. The money is the excuse for the crime - Nietzsche.

He's right. Even robbing a bank usually pays less than half a year's work. Robbing a till seldom pays more than a day's work, especially with everybody using cards, some places are going to $50 in change to start the till instead of $100.

Don't live in cities and have good friends nearby. When I say cities, I mean live in a town of 1k-5k max with a small market, a gas station and a few restaurants. A butcher nearby. Everyone has guns and would protect their neighbors. I'm sure there are drunks, but we really don't even get DUI's from locals. Usually out of town people driving through. So basically no crime.

Sometimes the city folks will come out here thinking they can catch us off guard and break into cars. Nope. They get caught every time. We don't even have cops 2am-8am. I could live in a better climate, but I wouldn't change what I have here. So I'm staying.

I dislike JB Prickzker, but if dems wanted a Biden swap I think he'd be better than anyone they're throwing out. He's just fat and was a covid Nazi. But he's got his own personal money, that he didn't earn. The vegan skinny fucks would be disgusted by him, which are typically mega lefties. The Dems have fucked up their party and will have to legit visibly cheat this time and get caught or they lose.

Chicago is a war zone. Not as bad as Gaza or Ukraine, but it's bad. Worse than Afghanistan or Iraq when we occupied entire countries. We're talking one city. If you ever come to Chicago make sure it's to meet up with someone you know that knows the city. 15 years there during a "peaceful" time and I'd have my head on a swivel. Obviously black crime, but city Mexicans are shady too. Even white collar ones that I dealt with in RE.

Dozens of people were shot during yet another bloodbath Fourth of July weekend in Democrat-controlled Chicago.

Shootings and other violence across the country during the extended Fourth of July weekend have left at least 33 people dead and injured dozens, authorities said.

11 people were killed in Chicago alone, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Another 55 people were wounded in shootings in Democrat Mayor Brandon Johnson’s Chicago.

Armed guards escort some South Bay delivery drivers due to crime concerns ...

"It's very unfortunate," he added. "You and I pay for it. The consumer pays for it on the backend because prices increase because the merchandise is going out the door and no one is stopping the bad guys because of the threat of violence."

Cortez said if one company is using guards to protect drivers, others are likely considering it to keep their drivers and products from being targeted.

I've stopped watching the local news like I used to. This is just a normal Chicago weekend in the summer. Sad but reality. My favorite band is playing in Chicago and I won't go. I'll probably never go to a sports event again in Chicago even though most venues are in relatively safe(ish) areas.

Milwaukee is shitty, but was just at a Brewers/Cubs game and there was no ghetto anywhere even though the city neighborhoods are pretty rough. White people start fights when they're drunk. Blacks kill people. This isn't political. It's stats. A fist fight is different than a gun fight.

Shocked that Ill Noise local news still features "At the corner of MLK and Marcus Garvey Blvd... Shaquan and his two cousins were gunned down.
Glocktavius Jeffries was arrested yesterday on suspicion of shooting store clerk Ho Lee Bong..." "

A lot of local areas have pulled the crime report under the guise of "Being more positive".
