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.

The twitter comments are funny because many dems are oblivious to why the brazen theft is happening. Many blame the security guard as being corrupt, or say it's not theft just someone walking out with the goods they purchased.

They don't realize their CA laws allow it, and DAs dismiss it.

Widow of NYPD Officer Jason Rivera blasts Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in moving eulogy

As dumb as the “Defund the Police!” slogan sounded back in May 2020, try promoting it now when the murder rate in this country is nearing a 25-year high.

In February 2021, San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced $120 million in cuts to her city’s police and sheriff’s department. Ten months later, she stood in front of a podium and declared that she was requesting more money from the city board of supervisors for the police. “And it comes to an end when are we more aggressive with law enforcement and less tolerant of all the bulls–t that has destroyed our city,” she said. While she did not admit that her own irresponsible policies had enabled said “bulls—t” to surge, her sudden about-face was admission enough.

The painful results of the Squad’s dreams coming true are hard for some politicians to ignore and rationalize. The senseless killings and organized robberies are bound to separate the men from the boys in the progressive movement. ...

These soft-on-crime policies were at the forefront of Dominique Luzuriaga’s mind as she delivered a eulogy for her husband, NYPD officer Jason Rivera, on Friday.

Officer Rivera died in the line of duty while responding to a 911 call in Harlem on January 21.

Through tears, his widow said, “This system continues to fail us. We are not safe anymore, not even the members of the service. I know you were tired of these laws, especially the ones from the new DA. I hope he’s watching you speak through me right now.”

It was a powerful rebuke of Bragg and even more so of the anti-police attitude that the left has encouraged for years. ...

Democrats are learning the hard way that these “catchy slogans” (as Obama once called them) and radical movements don’t just inspire puff pieces in the Washington Post. They lead to real crime and real hurt. We are going to find out very quickly which liberals were merely going along for the radical ride until the reality became too much to bear. Some politicians are already reversing course.

We are also going to find out which progressives are the true believers and stay the course. That might be the scariest discovery of all.

Balloonhead Jen Psaki Makes Fun Of Conservatives Worried About Soft-On-Crime Policies: "What Does That Even Mean?"

Now, Rapaport is checking back in at his neighborhood Rite-Aid and it is completely bare and will be closing down, thanks to the Biden crime wave.

Back in my Rite-Aid and there's nothing to steal, because this Rite-Aid, like so many other Rite-Aids, is closing down because everybody stole everything.

And the workers here don't know if they're getting jobs.

He is so, so close to figuring it out.
He lives in New York City, he votes for leftists, and crime is skyrocketing...

You can do it, Michael!

2021 was all time record police deaths.

2022 has dozens already, not even into February, will probably beat it.

We tried this in the 60s and 70s, and it led to high crime. What stopped it was expanding concealed carry and minimum sentences. Bring back 3 strikes. End Low Bail for violent crime.

Wantez Tulloss, a prolific offender, is accused of hitting this random woman in the head with a bat. He takes a full swing. She's now suffering skull fractures that require significant surgery. He got a slice of pizza after the attack.

This is what Seattle has become.

Earlier this month, he played a clip of Jen Psaki laughing at the “alternate universe” Fox News creates for its viewers.

“Jeanine Pirro [is] talking about ‘soft on crime consequences.’ I mean, what does that even mean, right?” Psaki said.

Tucker’s sarcasm was merciless:

“You’d have to be delusional to think crime was a problem in this country, unless you happened to be in Georgetown last night around 6:45 p.m. If you were there, you may have seen a man shot to death outside Georgetown Cupcake… not too far from where Jen Psaki lives. But did Jen Psaki acknowledge that happened? Of course she didn’t. Noticing the collapse of your civilization is racist.”

How ‘defund the police’ hurt the black community
Media narratives may have done more damage than the police themselves

Crime could be increasing because criminals just aren't that worried about cops that bend the knee to the BLM or are scared of doing their duty to protect kids from an active shooter or in an area near where I am; scared of getting wet.


What do we have soy police.

Also, do the BART police do anything more than harass people with sandwiches?

New York's bail reform laws went into effect in 2020, and the law currently eliminates bail for most misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies, meaning that most criminals arrested for these crimes are freed without restrictions, usually within a few hours of their arrest.

Not surprisingly, this has led to wild rates of recidivism, as criminals play the justice system and rack up arrest over arrest. According to the NYPD, some of the worst statistics involve 10 criminals who together have racked up 485 arrests.

The criminals are being educated that they are now deputized against the people. This is the why of the rise of vigilantism.

It is the unwillingness of black leaders to recognize the dismal state of fatherless black males that is leading to increased crime. The mayor of New Orleans goes above and beyond denial, to supporting those who commit crimes.

"So, the mayor of the city, Latoya Cantrell, showed up to the sentencing, but here's the twist in the story. Mayor Cantrell didn't show up to support the victims, the women who'd been terrorized by this predator. No, the mayor showed up to support the carjacker and to let the entire city know that she was doing it, to let everyone know whose side she was on."
