Democrat City Reaping What They Sowed After “Defunding Police”
I don’t rejoice in what is happening in some of the cities where chaos has erupted, but it’s definitely not something that has caught me off guard.
After cries to defund the police all last year following the death of George Floyd, many cities have seen crime skyrocket.
I can’t even say violent crime has skyrocketed more than property crime because I honestly see just as much of property crime as I do violent crime.
We’re continually seeing stories of people walking into stores in broad daylight and stealing. The sad thing is, some cities have decided not to even prosecute thieves if the items stolen are under a certain amount.
How is this justice? How is this fair to the people who own those items? It’s not, and Democrats just don’t care.
Minneapolis is one of the cities that has been rocked the hardest lately. This is where the George Floyd incident took place and where we heard the strongest calls for defunding the police coming from.
Well, they’re now reaping their reward.
Minnesota police chiefs have raised concerns over the recent rise in violence across the state – particularly gun violence – with one chief saying it is unlike anything he’s seen before.
Hennepin County, which encompasses Minneapolis and several smaller cities, has seen a 24% increase in 2020 over 2019, with a sharp rise of 36% from October through December 2020, according to police.
Many people thought that maybe this would stop after President Trump was out of office, but those of us who aren’t complete idiots knew that that wasn’t going to change anything because we knew that they weren’t doing it because of him in the first place. Criminals commit crimes because they’re scumbag criminals.
“I’ve never seen the gun violence like this,” Brooklyn Park Police Chief Craig Enevoldsen told Fox 9. “We need to come together and say when is enough, enough.”
“I literally thought the shootings of those children in Minneapolis could get a different way of thinking, and it hasn’t,” he added. “God forbid it could be us. That could happen in any of our cities.”
Enevoldsen said the number of reported calls over shots fired jumped 55% over the same time last year. Brooklyn Park police also recovered 55 guns in the last year.
