The Democrats’ insane experiment is coming to a close in a tragic way.
It’s a terrifying preview of what could be the country’s future.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Black Lives Matter dream was crushed by this violence.
Rational humans could have predicted what would happen when the police are dismantled.
The police play a major role in keeping crime rates down in America and yet the radical left feels like they can simply be dismissed and life will go on as before.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that defunding the police looks like a suburb, but suburbs spend plenty of money on law enforcement.
Defunding the police really looks like CHOP, the autonomous zone in Seattle that was compared to a “summer of love” by its Mayor Jenny Durkan originally.
Yet the death of a 19-year-old and two other people being injured is making even a radical liberal like Durkan rethink CHOP.
“Faced with growing pressure to crack down on an ‘occupied’ protest zone following two weekend shootings, Seattle’s mayor said Monday that officials will move to wind down the blocks-long span of city streets taken over two weeks ago that President Donald Trump asserted is run by ‘anarchists,’” Q13 FOX Seattle reported. “Durkan said at a news conference that the violence was distracting from changes sought by thousands of peaceful protesters seeking to address racial inequity and police brutality. She said the city is working with the community to bring the ‘Capitol Hill Occupied Protest’ zone to an end.”
Of course Durkan is doing her best to transform the problem into a gun violence problem.
“In the past two nights, three different people have been shot at the CHOP. Two were injured, and one has tragically died. Any incidents of gun violence in our city are deeply concerning to me, Chief @carmenbest, our residents, businesses, and the greater community,” she wrote on Twitter.
The violence was predictable and Durkan is responsible for allowing the lawless takeover of a part of her city.
In New York City, there have been 55 shootings in the last week while in the same week in 2019, there were only 12.
The New York police have just disbanded its plainclothes anti-crime unit.
This is the consequence of the policies the left has pushed for and we should not let them forget it.
Their insane ideas seem laughably stupid but the data indicates that they are causing crime to rise.
Americans shouldn’t allow their foolish ideas to persist.
Defunding the police will destroy American cities.
Democrat politicians need to grow a spine and be able to condemn the violent protests and stand firm against their radical ideas.
