It’s clear that Democrats’ failed policies are destroying people’s lives in real ways.
The president needs to be held accountable for the damage he’s done.
Joe Biden was horrified to see the scandal one Republican video exposed.
Violent crime is rising in America’s major cities.
In just one year there was a 97% increase in murders in New York City from 2019 to 2020. So far in 2021 there’s been a 13.5% increase in homicides compared to 2020.
New York is not alone; compared to last year, homicides have risen 58% in Atlanta, 5% in Chicago, 37% in Philadelphia, 22% in Los Angeles and a shocking 533% in Portland.
The Democrats’ police reforms are clearly having a terrible effect on America’s major cities.
House Republicans released a video on Wednesday which showed President Joe Biden’s “crime crisis.”
The video shows news clips revealing that“violent crime is surging across America’s biggest cities.”
“At least eight people killed and dozens injured in shootings over the weekend alone,” the video continues with graphics noting Chicago’s surge in violence. “In some neighborhoods, some people have simply given up on calling the cops, saying the city fails to protect them.”
The video then showed footage of CNN anchor Erin Burnett reporting on the “stunning” uptick in crime numbers in New York City.
The video ended with a California businesswoman saying that “ultimately, we do need more police officers” to stop the crime surge.
The police reforms of the ‘90s were instrumental in bringing down crime rates. But Biden isn’t looking at tried-and-true methods for bringing crime rates down.
Instead Biden is pushing for harsh gun control measures.
D.C. Police Union Chairman Gregg Pemberton told the Daily Caller that Biden’s approach to crime “might be the most incompetent approach yet.”
“The Executive Orders unveiled today appear to address these problems from the perspective of gun sales. This might be the most incompetent approach yet,” Pemberton told the DCNF.
Pemberton noted that city councils have targeted police departments, causing police to quit in record numbers.
“Police officers are leaving these agencies in record numbers and those that remain, are being told to stop doing the professional and responsible police work that prevents criminal activity from proliferating,” Pemberton added.
“The blatantly obvious reason for these spikes in crime is the attacks on police officers who would normally be in these communities preventing violence,” Pemberton added. “These new efforts to destroy policing make the ‘Ferguson Effect’ look like child’s play. These exponential crime waves should now be dubbed the ‘Defund Effect’.”
The Biden administration has tried to blame the rise in crime on an increase in gun sales.
“Trying to solve these problems by clamping down on gun sales is undeniably misguided, and is nothing more than a distraction from the obvious need to walk back these dangerous anti-police policies,” Pemberton concluded.
