The rise in crime is a fact. Democrats don’t want to talk about it. But we are seeing constant data from the blue cities where Black Lives Matter protesters are pushing for the criminal justice reforms they demand. They don’t work.
Advanced agendas include aggressive hostage reform policies, the election / appointment of soft prosecutors, the reclassification of crimes for serious crimes, and the establishment of holy cities where criminals can safely hide and re-offend without fear of retribution.
Whatever the intention, all of these policies are showing the same result: more crime.

Murder rates rose 25 percent, according to the FBI. That means 4,000 more homicides in 2020 than in 2019. This national figure hides a significant increase in cities where progressive “criminal justice reforms” are taking place.
In New York City, shootings increased by 97 percent in 2020, and homicides by 45 percent. In Chicago, which experienced violent crime before the riots, shootings rose 55 percent. It was the same event in Los Angeles, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Portland, Minneapolis, Detroit and many other advanced meccas.
Similarly, the rise in organized retail crime has intensified in California so much that major retail stores like Walgreens and Target are closing. Similar coordinated store robbery attacks have affected Washington and New York and others.
This came after progressive reforms that decriminalized theft in California and allowed thieves to take up to $ 950 worth of goods before committing a crime. The defunded there is no reason for the police to answer the shoplifting call. They can’t arrest criminals anyway.
In other major cities, prosecutors are refusing to put charges on their agenda that they consider minor offenses in order to put an end to mass imprisonment. Or they use cashless bail programs just to see people commit violent crimes once they are released.
A well-known tactic of using the increase in crime rates to justify victims of disarmament crimes reduces our security, and vice versa.
These so-called justice reforms do not work for good reasons: there is nothing to motivate legal action unless the consequences of the crime outweigh the consequences. As a result, more crime always happens.
The left presses were quick to convince us that these crime statistics were not related to progressive politics. MSNBC employee Chris Hayes said the arms trade was the culprit that led to the record-breaking crime. But this increase in crime is not driven by law-abiding gun owners. They are run by criminals.
Criminal justice reform is needed. I have sponsored some of them with colleagues across the satellite as a member of Congress. But whether the left’s “end to mass imprisonment” plan was designed or had unintended consequences, it worked as a crime support program that was beneficial to the guilty and disastrous to the innocent.

Ambush attacks on police officers increased by 91% in 2021, according to data released by the Police Fraternity Order. On June 22, they wrote on Twitter that 150 officers had been shot dead this year alone, 28 had been killed by gunfire, and 51 had been shot in 51 different ambush attacks.
A well-known tactic of using the increase in crime rates to justify victims of disarmament crimes reduces our security, and vice versa. Those who have enacted laws to prosecute and arrest lawful gun owners, who carry their weapons in public places, are now fighting extreme crime and mass imprisonment. They have lost interest in arresting criminals, but they are still demanding harsher punishments for those who carry weapons in self-defense in their jurisdictions.
The condition for gun control was that we always had to hand over our security to a trained police officer who knew how to use their weapons. But now those politicians want to reduce the police force, reduce response time, and send social workers to protect us.
We know how to reduce crime. New York set out in 1990 with a clear police model that said stopping small things until they were big was the key to reducing violence. It worked. And it can work again.
But the advanced recipe for fighting crime is the recipe for chaos. We do not need cashless collateral. We don’t need soft prosecutors who believe in decriminalizing crime. Most importantly, we don’t have to do ying to buy in this country.
