We all saw this coming. Yet the radical left pushed a dangerous policy, regardless of the consequences.
For several years, far-left Democrats, including members of Congress, have called for the defunding of local police departments. They never seemed to talk about what might happen if cities did.
But numerous cities did defund PDs. The results were a dramatic rise in crime. Include this one horrible statistic.
From Fox News:
What was left in 2020’s wake was a massive increase in the number of murders, dealing a disproportionate blow to Black Americans…
Murders across the board spiked by nearly 30% in 2020 compared to the year prior, according to FBI data, marking the largest single-year increase in killings since the agency began tracking the crimes. Among Black Americans, the number of deaths spiked by more than 32% compared to 2019.
It’s horrifically tragic that a group called “Black Lives Matter” is responsible for a 32% rise in black murders. Ever since cities defunded police departments, that is what happened.
That group should be called “Marxists for the Destruction of Democracy.” Because their goals are to dismantle our society and replace it with a communist dictatorship.
A rise in crime would result in more poverty—so Democrats could justify more socialist spending. That was their goal, it seems, all along.
Eliminating the police was done deliberately by these radical leftists, so that crime would spread. What other goal could there be?
We don’t have to dig up all the statistics to prove cops kill a dramatically fewer number of people than criminals, let alone black people.
Defunding police would never help black Americans thrive. Polling revealed most black Americans (80% in some polls, more than other Americans) wanted more cops.
Yet these Democrats willfully slashed police budgets in cities like New York, Austin, Los Angeles, and Milwaukee.
The results speak for themselves. A dramatic spike in violent crime and murder. And black people suffered the most.
All so a few Marxists can pat themselves on the back.
- The “defund” movement resulted in a 30% increase in homicides since 2020.
- There was a 32% increase in black deaths during the same time period.
- Radical leftists pushed for defunding police departments, resulting in chaos.
