It’s no secret that crime is on the rise… in blue cities and states. Ever since the ill-conceived “defund the police” movement, Democrats have pushed policies that reward criminals and put law-abiding citizens at risk. In some cities, smash-and-grab gangs have been shutting down major retailers, who have closed their doors for good.
And all signs point to it getting worse.
While conservative states are increasing funding for cops, Democrats are going out of their way to make sure criminals won’t face charges. The new DA in Manhattan released his manifesto. He plans on reducing penalties for a wide variety of crimes including bank robbery. So, a few voices of reason are demanding his removal.
From Biz Pac Review:
Democrat Alvin Bragg, Manhattan’s new district attorney… has issued a controversial 10-page memo instructing prosecutors not to prosecute many crimes going forward and stressed alternatives to incarceration…
Under most circumstances, Bragg’s office will no longer press charges at all in the cases of resisting arrest or obstructing, trespassing, fare jumping, certain traffic offenses including driving without a license, prostitution, and marijuana misdemeanors.
Alvin Bragg is the new liberal district attorney for Manhattan. And already he is implementing policies that will make the city even less safe. Despite the fact the new mayor was a former police captain, this DA’s agenda would put criminals back on the street. He wants to reduce penalties for armed robbery, obstructing, trespassing, and more.
Under the former mayor, New York suffered a surge in crime. The radical leftist pushed “reforms” that eliminated bail, slashed the NYPD’s budget, and encouraged all kinds of crime. New Yorkers haven’t seen such dangerous streets since the 1970s. Yet they went ahead and elected a new DA that is just as bad.
Here’s what The Five think about that:
The folks over at The Five have an idea: impeach this DA who they say is trying to create “lawlessness and anarchy.” Unfortunately, that is unlikely to happen. New Yorkers elected another Democrat to the mayor’s office. He and his administration supports Bragg and will do nothing to stop his radical agenda.
This comes as Democrats across the county push pro-crime policies. In San Francisco, the cops aren’t doing anything about a dramatic increase in car break-ins. Residents are just leaving their cars unlocked, just so their windows won’t get smashed in. Now tell me, is that any way to live, in the United States of America?
If Democrats had their way, this would be the situation everywhere. No citizen would be safe. Biden is flooding the border with criminals as Democrats empty our jails. I’d like to say voters would one day come to their senses. But that might not happen in these deep blue areas.
