Democrats are terrified that they are about to lose the election.
And it’s their own insanity that got them deep in trouble.
William Barr dropped one statistic that made Nancy Pelosi gasp for breath.
Crime in many major cities across the country has sharply risen since the start of the Black Lives Matter protests.
Democratic Mayor of Portland Ted Wheeler was forced to move after protesters set fire to his apartment building.
While in Chicago, homicides are up 50% compared to last year.
Yet the Democratic Mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, insisted in July that having federal troops in the city would only make things worse.
“We can’t just allow anyone to come into Chicago, play police in our streets, in our neighborhoods, when they don’t know the first thing about our city,” Lightfoot said before insisting that gun violence was the problem.
Yet the Justice Department’s Operation Legend made a significant difference in Chicago’s homicide rate, Attorney General William Barr announced.
“Barr, who spoke at a press conference flanked by a number of key federal enforcement leaders, said that 1,000 federal law enforcement officers had been deployed to nine major cities and had conducted 2,500 arrests, including federal criminal charges against 600 defendants. Barr discussed Chicago’s murder rate in recent months — 58 murders in April, 84 murders in May, 96 murders in June, and 108 murders in July — and said that Operation Legend’s arrival in Chicago on July 22 played a role in helping stem the tide, with only 64 murders in August,” the Washington Examiner reported.
The Democrats are trying to pretend that law enforcement, whether on local or on federal level, aren’t able to make a difference with crime or with the protests but Barr has proved them wrong.
“I’m pleased to be in Chicago to address the most significant threat facing this city. The explosion of violent crime, particularly homicides, in Chicago earlier this year threatened not only the safety but this city’s way of life. The federal government responded with Operation Legend, one of the most significant federal law enforcement operations in years,” Barr said. “We have dedicated hundreds of the federal government’s best investigators, analysts, fugitive trackers, and other experts to work with our state and local colleagues in law enforcement here in Chicago to help get violent criminals off the streets. I am pleased to report that Operation Legend is working. Crime is down, and order is being restored to this great American city.”
While the city of Chicago noted the drop in their crime, they completely failed to mention the federal aid that helped them achieve the drop in homicides.
The Democrats’ current attitude towards law enforcement is putting American lives at risk.
