It has been well-documented how large, Democrat-run cities are suffering. Critics are blaming left-wing policies for an explosion in crime, poverty, and chaos.
These cities have been the center of off-and-on riots and looting over recent years. Crime is getting so bad, many businesses are shutting their doors.
This crisis is affecting nearly every major city in America that is being run by majority Democrats. One state capital has become overrun. The situation has created, according to some, a public safety crisis. And now, a Democrat district attorney’s office is actually suing its own city.
From Fox News:
A Democratic district attorney in California is suing the Democrat-led city of Sacramento for allowing homeless conditions to devolve into squalor akin to a “Third World country.” […]
Sacramento County District Attorney Thien Ho [is]… alleging that the city of Sacramento violated California civic code, specifically that it “allowed, created and enabled a public safety crisis regarding our unhoused.”
“In the last 7 years, Sacramento’s unhoused population has exploded by over 250%,” the lawsuit says.
Democrat District Attorney Thien Ho has sued the city of Sacramento for its homeless crisis. Ho is stating that the situation is worse than even San Francisco. Homelessness has exposed by 250% in just the last seven years alone.
Ho accused the city of becoming a “Third World” country. He claimed that law-abiding residents are “stuck between compassion and chaos.” His office is accusing the city of allowing the problem to turn into a public safety crisis.
Many liberal-run cities on the West Coast have seen dramatic increases in homelessness. Critics point to a variety of policies that are contributing to this crisis. Legalized drugs and billions of dollars in free benefits (with no strings attached) have attracted homeless from all over the world.
Lax criminal laws have only encouraged more homelessness. These people are often arrested for assault, sex acts, and other illegal offenses. But they are quickly returned to the streets.
Most, if not all, of these cities have passed rules banning police from clearing away homeless encampments, even when they block city streets, overflow city parks, and pose a threat to residents.
This, however, appears to be the first time a Democrat official is suing his own city over the crisis. It could be a tipping point in this ongoing crisis in blue cities.
- A liberal district attorney from California has sued the city of Sacramento.
- District Attorney Ho is accusing the city of letting the homeless crisis get out of control.
- He claims the city is responsible for turning Sacramento into a “Third World” country.
