Homicide Rates Soar After City Councils Moves to Defund Police

So, what is the connection between a fully funded, well-trained police force to the occurrence of the most serious of crimes like assaults and homicide?

No connection whatever, say the liberal dimwits who get paid to spew counterintuitive nonsense on CNN and MSNBC. In fact–according to what most of those pinhead pundits learned in their Sociology 201 classes–crimes against people and property are caused by social injustice, police enforcement, and a prison system that punishes only those who…uh…commit crimes.

According to their cracked-brain theory, we can only break the cycle of violence by removing the cause— law enforcement. They want to substitute police officers with kindly social workers, who respond to violent domestic fights, riots, or hostage situations with a calm, reason, and hopefulness.

Sure, it’s hard to referee inflamed people with murderous intent under the influence of crack cocaine or amphetamines. But the words “How does that make you feel?” can go a long way in defusing volatile situations they assure us.

Also, part of the problem, as liberal reasoning goes, is that since the crime surge of the early 1990s, when Joe Biden helped pass a crime bill that increased police funding and put more perps in jail, there really hasn’t been any correlation between increasing police budgets and reducing homicides.

Except, there actually is both a direct correlation and a startling reduction in homicides per capita since 1994. It’s one of those rare cases where you can actually throw money at a problem and watch it become less of a problem. Police budgets since 1994 have grown by 45%. Homicides per capita since 1994 have gone down 32%.

Of course, the relationship between how many police officers a community hires and how effective they are depends on many local variables. Seattle and Portland police, for example, didn’t do well in stamping out those riots, because liberal city officials told them to abandon the scene to the arsonist rioters.

One criminology professor at the University of Pennsylvania put it this way: “A lot …depends on what the police do. If you were to reduce the size of the police force, and you had way fewer officers, the available data tell us that that’s a risk, because police manpower does have an effect on crime, particularly violent crime.”

Then there’s the network that no one watches—CNN—who came up with this gem of an article by Scottie Andrew: “Crime is surging in US cities. Some say defunding the police will actually make it fall.”

How’s that working for Milwaukee, ground zero where drug addict George Floyd died while resisting arrest? Channel 58 News in Milwaukee reports that the Milwaukee homicide rate is up 96% “compared to this time last year.”

Why is that so? One reason could be police reluctance to protect battered women or jump in between couples’ spats—or “inter-partner violence.” (Are you paying attention women’s advocates?)

Supporters who want to cut police budgets make the argument that if cities could focus on the root causes of crime—you know, poverty, drug abuse, and our mean old justice system—we wouldn’t need the police so much.

They are halfway there. If those supporters could focus realistically on the root causes, they would recognize that the cause is 50 years of liberal policies that promote welfare subsistence existence, fatherless families, and a revolving-door, self-perpetuating justice system that fails both to rehabilitate or punish.

      1. Grace says

        The usual answer by Democrats. Us a tack hammer to drive a nail. The tack hammer breaks and the nail is bent and the house never gets built. Promises made, Promises never kept.

    1. John Vieira says

      Ah, if only that was really so…

    2. gandolf the Whte says

      John Vieira Says us taxpayers have to pay for the hospital bills and the legal system of that scum. That is the down side. For every action there is an opposite reaction.

  3. Doug Litchfield says

    Who would have thought this would happen with a court systems revolving door policy. Wouldn’t trust that group with keys to the zoo.

    1. russell remmert says

      1. Herbert Woodbury says

    As a Minnesotan democrats have destroyed this state, nothing ever their fault. I moved out of the Twin Cities years ago would never go back nothing but a sh***ole. People’s homes there are now worthless and who will be able to afford homeowners insurance? Democrats made these ridiculous decisions and should be held accountable. People are leaving in droves but please don’t head north we don’t want you.

    1. Dick says

      You r so right … these A Holes run from Lib inspired hell holes and vote for what they are running from in the new place!! COVID is a cake walk compared to these infectious IMBECILES.

  6. Van says

    Take your city back, Antifa, burn, loot murder, long term prison, hard labor no chance of parole. All other domestic terrorist groups need to stop.
    Demon Rats do not care about the citizens. they want to get rid of the police force, take our guns. They are going to get rid of our freedoms. It should not be tolerated. You can’t bargain with terrorists. Anyone with eyes can see what’s happening.
    You want peace, vote all failure, incompetent, disqualified, disgrace politically out of offices.
    We have only one choice for voting at this time. Law and Order are needed. Vote RED.

    1. Joseph cusano says

      Build a wall around cities to keep the rats in.

    2. Herbert Woodbury says

      What good is having a gun if you can’t use it to protect yourself?

      As it stands now carrying a gun, inside or outside, your home to protect from a threatening mob, will get you arrested.

  7. Lyudmila Loeva says

    I don’t think that if each of these killers were asked before the murder, “How do you feel?” then there would be fewer murders in Milwaukee. But those golden words that the author of the article said: “The reason is 50 years of liberal politics that fosters prosperity, fatherless families and revolving doors, a self-replicating justice system that is incapable of either rehabilitating or punishing.” This should have been written in gold letters at the entrance to the Congress Capitol.

  8. Howard T. Lewis III says

    Look anywhere. If you get rid of a common police force, first, the thefts, second, the murders, third, the home break ins, fourth, the rapes. Minneapolis is a ‘Majority Idiot’ City.

    1. gandolf the Whte says

      The DOJ says in Chicago from 2016 to 2020 2900 blacks were gunned down in the street by blacks with illegal handguns. 50 killed were children under 12 killed in drivebys.

  9. Jeff says

    I once served as a prison guard. The mentality of some of the incarcerated is beyond comprehension. Some are good people who made bad mistakes. Half at least are hardcore trouble makers and worse, just plain evil. Fewer police lead to boldness for hard core criminals. All criminals do not wish to get caught and if there is less chance of getting caught they will commit more crimes.

  10. TheIcecube says

    You know what having no police means. There are no speed limits so drive it like you stole it after stealing it.

  11. Adrian Vance says

    Democrats love of evil people reduces to the fact 90% of all convicted felons vote Democrat! It is just that simple. They do not give a rat’s rump for law and order. They care only about their power. Fortunately, they do not realize minorities who suffer at the hands of criminals are pro-police as they are suffering at the hands of these creeps.

  12. Eddielee says

    With all due respect — so many cities want to “defund” the police and replace law enforcement with “sympathetic, touchy-feely social workers who will defuse violent situations with comments like “How do you feel and why are you angry?” I have been a social worker since 1977. I’m good at what I do when its 1:1. But I would seriously worry about my own personal safety if I am ordered into a domestic violence situation or a fight between two people using crack cocaine. Social Workers don’t go into situations with guns drawn or pepper spray or mace or anything. All we have is common sense and the right words to say. But all those touchy-feely things go out the window when the perps are not receptive to the “pretty words”. We need Law and Order. We need police men and police women to serve and protect the public. You can’t expect to take away the police and replace them with sympathetic social workers. If social workers walk into violent situations, the social workers will die and nothing productive will happen — except casket makers and funeral homes will make much more money.

      What in the he’ll did theses morons think nowadays everyone should have to were armor to take a walk

    Where would our country be if we actually had a MSM that REPORTED the NEWS, real news, stories supported with provable facts, who verified the truth before releasing any information to the public, that could cause direct harm and unrest if not accurate, if not factual…by reporters with INTEGRITY, reporters that earned the TRUST of all Americans regardless of their political affiliation and did NOT distort facts, deliberately omit exculpatory evidence and information, designed to twist the truth so it supported the democrat narrative?
    All I can say is I would sure like to know. I believe our great nation would have much, much less divide and divisiveness. It would be great if our children, our grandchildren were able to see and hear the actual TRUTH told, the verified truth… and real FACTS, proven facts. Every single American would then actually develop TRUST…. and TRUST leads to BELIEF…and BELIEF leads to HOPE.. and HOPE leads to a VISION of an even BETTER AMERICA…. and with hope there is no negativity as they are mutually exclusive of each other… and when negativity and distrust are eliminated… and all we have left are TRUST, BELIEF and HOPE… OUR FUTURE IS BRIGHTER, OUR SUCCESSES WILL BE MANY…and we will return to being: THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA… ONE NATION UNDER GOD INDIVISIBLE WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL… FOR ALL.. The greatest gift we can give our children, our grandchildren, is HOPE. Hope that with each generation our actions and our behavior, provides a better life, filled with happiness and compassion for one another, and a greater love and respect than we’ve ever experienced before… WOULDN’T THIS BE AWESOME! ❤️🇺🇸🙏

    Now the fact being that even before the riots crime was raising under the trump administration, from the 50 year low when Trump took office. When you have a President who pushes violence at every instance, talking about beating the hell out of those who disagree with him at every instance.

    1. Ferd Berkel says

      Now Robert you KNOW you should not stop taking your meds!

  15. Carbine Williams says

    Let them kill each other off and teach them to vote for Politicians that will work for their constituents instead of trying to become richer on the taxpayers dime.How many poor politicians do you know ?

  16. dawn says

    Robert, get your head out of your butt, the gray matter is being infected with the brown matter! You can’t be that naive!

    1. Roy Pirhala says

      Robert’s problem is that he is a brainwashed democrat; beyond naive.

  18. Dolores says

    The leaders of all the cities that have defunded the Police should be arrested for contenting to incite all these
    riots. I’m really getting sick and tired of the democrats trying to ruin a great country.
