Because of Democrats taking a permissive attitude towards lawlessness and criminals, leftist-run cities are beginning to resemble third-world war zones. Cities like Minneapolis, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago suffer from increasing violent crime rates.
Democrats are refusing to take effective action to stop crime. In California, when police arrest criminals, they’ve often turned loose on the streets again within days due to the state’s bleeding heart liberal bail laws.
As the crime crisis spirals out of control, more and more Americans are talking about it. Nevertheless, Democrats like House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are downplaying the gravity of crime in leftist cities.
As Breitbart News reports, Ocasio-Cortez’s downplaying of crime sprees in Democrat-run cities caused numerous folks to give her a much-needed reality check.
When Ocasio-Cortez conversed with The Washington Times, she falsely declared that the facts did not back up various reports of theft in retail establishments. Quite frankly, this is one of the most absurd statements someone has ever made, even coming from Ocasio-Cortez.
Countless videos have made the news and gone viral on social media of these increasingly violent looting episodes. There have been multiple and increasing reports from various establishments of these robberies. Likewise, retail workers have been the victims of violent outbursts from these criminals.
The California Retailers Association has stated the violence associated with these looting episodes has reached unparalleled levels. Meanwhile, the Retail Industry Leaders Association said Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks were wrong and out of line with reality.
The Retail Industry Leaders Association additionally noted video evidence and data proving these criminal episodes are taking place and hurting communities. The group also stated that if Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t care about retail workers facing violent attacks, she should be forthcoming about this.
For a sitting congresswoman to be so tragically in denial about what’s happening in this country. It’s also equally problematic to know that Ocasio-Cortez isn’t the only person with this carefree attitude about theft and violent crime.
As unfortunate as it is, Democrats don’t honestly see anything wrong with what’s happening. Therefore, they will not take any meaningful action to fix the situation because of what will worsen.
Democrats won’t change their tax bail laws or get serious about putting policies to stop the lawlessness. As the mayhem continues, the blood will be in their own hands.
