    Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw, one of millions of conservatives fed up with the left-wing extremism overwhelming the country, pointed to just a single example Wednesday of the deadly violence that this Democrat Party- and media-endorsed extremism has wrought. The example he cited from radio station WINS concerned just New York City, yet it involved a startling 112 shooting victims (some still alive, others dead) who’ve been harmed within the past nine or so days alone.

    Seattle saw a staggering 525 percent spike in crime as a result of the violence that swept through the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone, according to Mayor Jenny Durkan. Durkan’s emergency order booting protesters from the six-block cop-free zone makes mention of the “narcotics use and violent crime, including rape, robbery, assault, and increased gang activity” within the CHOP since it first emerged in early June. ... The CHOP crime spree includes the deaths of two black teens, ages 19 and 16, who were fatally shot in separate incidents.
  • Chicago police activity slowed amid June’s steep rise in murders; union blames morale

    The Chicago Sun-Times ^ | June 30, 2020 | Frank Main and Fran Spielman
    As the number of murders in Chicago soared in June, there was a huge slowdown of police activity that the police union blames on rock-bottom morale and distrust of Mayor Lori Lightfoot. Police Supt. David Brown said Monday that police activity slowed because fewer people have been on the streets “because of COVID.” But John Catanzara, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, said Tuesday it’s more than that. “I’m not telling them not to do police work,” Catanzara said of his members. “But I hope they just slow down and decide ‘Is this necessary?’ before they do it.” Catanzara...
  • A return to this? Gritty images show New York City ravaged by crime in the 70s and 80s when the Big Apple was dubbed 'Fear City' - amid growing concern it will 'relapse' as $1 billion is stripped from the NYPD

    Gritty photos taken in New York during the 1970s have laid bare why it used to be dubbed 'Fear City', amid concern it is heading back to the dark days with crime and disorder on the rise even as $1billion is slashed from the NYPD. In the 1970s, the city faced $10 billion in debt, teetered on the knife's edge of bankruptcy, and then Mayor Abraham Beame was forced to cut the police, fire and sanitation departments. Every type of crime - robberies, assaults, murders, grand larcenies - was up. Nowhere was safe, including and especially the subways, every inch...

    CHICAGO - Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx, according to an internal email obtained by FOX 32, plans to drop most if not all charges against many of those arrested for curfew violations during protests earlier this month, including felony charges filed after police followed up.

    The Washington Post tried to push back on President Donald Trump’s claim that the most dangerous cities in America are run by Democrats – but the graph provided largely proved Trump’s point. Trump said Wednesday that “every one” of America’s “20 most dangerous” cities “are Democrat run.” WaPo’s analysis headline wrote that “Trump keeps claiming that the most dangerous cities in America are all run by Democrats. They aren’t.” The article, however, did not provide a single city run by a Republican in the top 20 most violent cities per capita. According to data WaPo gathered to disprove Trump, 19...

    "Authorities were investigating a shooting Saturday night at a park in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, where demonstrators had gathered to protest the death of Breonna Taylor. “We are currently working an active police situation at Jefferson Square Park," Louisville police said in a statement, according to news outlets. Video posted on social media appeared to show a man opening fire into the park as people scrambled for cover. The footage later showed at least one person bleeding profusely on the ground. Officials did not immediately release additional information. The park has for weeks been the epicenter for protests in the city...

    Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby dismissed almost 600 criminal cases for what she determined are minor offenses. In other words, minor crimes are allowed in crime-ridden Baltimore. The minor crimes include, among others, drug possession, paraphernalia possession, prostitution (allows for trafficking), trespassing, minor traffic offenses, open container, rogues and vagabond, and urinating/defecating in public. Isn’t that lovely? She boasted that she already filed to vacate almost 5,000 Circuit Court and District Court marijuana convictions. But Circuit Court Judge W. Michel Pierson and District Court Judge Kathleen Sweeney completely shot down Mosby’s request to erase those convictions on April 26, The...

    I missed this when it was published Thursday. The Washington Post’s Philip Bump did a fact-check of sorts on a claim made by President Trump: “You hear about certain places like Chicago and you hear about what’s going on in Detroit and other — other cities, all Democrat run,” he said. “Every one of them is Democrat run. Twenty out of 20. The 20 worst, the 20 most dangerous are Democrat run.” It’s not clear how Trump is defining “most dangerous” in this context. So let’s look at two related sets of data compiled by the FBI: most violent...

    A new Rasmussen poll shows a plurality of voters (49 percent) are ready to elect former Vice-President Joe Biden “to scale back the violence that is tearing our cities apart.” A poll respondent from New York City explained that “paying for protection is the best option we have. Sure, it’s extortion, but what choice do we have? The reality is that it is better to pay off those controlling the mobs who stand ready to destroy everything a bigger slice of our hard-earned money than to see them wreck everything like they have been doing the past month.” A respondent...
