To realise that if you are constantly cutting the funds for the police, or jumping on the faux outrage of defunding the police that the crime rate will rise.
After all those who are out demanding the defunding of the police are rioting, vandalising and looting and I cannot believe that the councils in these areas are stupid enough to give into their demands. It was always just an excuse for some to go stealing because they have this attitude that they are owed….despite doing nothing to deserve it.
As a result of de-policing during June and July 2020, approximately 710 additional victims were murdered and more than 2,800 victims were shot’. In research published this month Professor Paul Cassell wrote: ‘Recently, major cities across the country have suffered dramatic spikes in homicides. These spikes are remarkably large, suddenly appearing and widespread. ‘At this rate, 2020 will easily be the deadliest year in America for gun-related homicides since at least 1999, while most other major crime categories are trending stable or slightly downward.’ (Daily Mail).
After all nothing says you are demanding a change like rioting and looting shops….
Now I am not a professor but even I can understand that if you let those who are determined to riot, steal, vandalise and cause maximum damage have a free reign, that yes the rate will go up. There will be more murders, more stealing, more damage and more vandalism because the city has taken away those people who were determined to protect it.
You cannot have it both ways and now they are reaping the rewards of the stupid decisions that politicians have decided to take. Society can only survive if you have good law and order, and the fact that somewhere like Minneapolis voted to defund their police shows just how downright stupid their officials are.
(Taken from the Daily Mail) A July study by the National Commission on COVID-19 and Criminal Justice found Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, Milwaukee and Detroit have all seen a rise in homicides, aggravated assault and gun assaults in 2020.
The study found that ‘rates of homicide, aggravated assault, and gun assault began to increase significantly in late May’. Minneapolis has has more than 400 shooting victims and 59 homicides so far in 2020.
Crime data from the Minneapolis Police Department shows homicide, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, auto theft, theft from motor vehicles and arson were all up in the city so far in 2020, when compared with 2019 up until September 15. Violent crime, including domestic aggravated assault, was up almost 15 per cent in the first nine months of the year, while property crime was up almost eight per cent in the same time period.
Of all the crimes that have increased, homicide saw the largest spike of 87 per cent, rising from 30 in 2019 to 56 in 2020, while incidents of arson have increased by 82 per cent over the total at this point in 2019.
Robbery rose from 931 to 1,275 (37 percent) while incidents of aggravated assault increased from 1,750 in 2019 to 2,100 this year (20 percent). Meanwhile, rape fell by 22 percent, and domestic aggravated assault fell by 8.4 percent.
In terms of property crimes, burglary rose from 2,223 to 2,785 (25 percent), thefts from motor vehicles rose from 3,127 to 3,937 (26 percent), and auto theft rose from 1,982 to 2,766 (40 percent), while larceny fell by almost 10 percent.
If I lived in these god awful places that seem to be run by the rioters then I would get a very good lawyer and sue those in the council for putting my life and that of my family in danger. It is no good showing a faux outrage over the killing of a man, when the very rioters are going out killing even more. This is a case of a good opportunity lost as all parties should have sat down and come up with a solution, but nope seems stupid won out and voted to defund the police.
I have and will always back the police as they are the good guys. 99.9% of them are not racist, they are not murderers and they do protect the people…so why not start to stick up for them now as they are the thin blue line between a peaceful life and the rioting that is happening in the USA.
Stay safe guys, girls and K9s and god bless you.
