Crime

A horrifying message from Minneapolis City Council

Perhaps the most horrifying message a taxpaying resident living in the 3rd Precinct could receive from a city council. This is from Minneapolis. Basically, you’re on your own. Here is some of the advice:

-Don’t walk alone.

-Be hyper aware of your surroundings at all times – pay attention.

-Carry only items you need and carry less cash.

-Be prepared to give up your cellphone and purse/wallet.

-Do as they say.

Who would want to stay?

We’re quite sure the social workers designed to replace the police might struggle to negotiate a peaceful outcome. What a farce. Liberal policy at its finest.

Who would have guessed gun crime would get out of control?

Surely those bright spark Democrat mayors in NYC, Chicago, Portland and Minnesota can work out that defunding the police might cause a spike in crime and gun violence? That curtailing what actions are at the disposal of the police would hand these cities over to the criminals.

There have been 777 shootings in NYC in 2020, one more than the 776 that took place in 2019.

Murders in Chicago more than doubled compared to the same month last year, according to the Chicago PD. In 2020 there have been 430 homicides. In July, murders are up 139%YoY.

In Minnesota, gun violence is up 72%YoY. Mayor Jacob Frey said., “Year-to-date this has been a higher shooting victim total than the last five years, with 288 victims. The next closest is 2016 with 178.

In Portland gun violence is up 4-fold. From July 1-13 there have been 42 shootings vs 11 in the same period last year.

And guess what, NY State Governor Andrew Cuomo has admitted concern that wealthy taxpayers could leave NY for good.

Roadway Moving President Ross Sapir has said his company has experienced its busiest season ever since it was founded. United Van Lines CEO Marc Rogers also said over 60% of those leaving NY are earning north of $100,000.

Tax collections have plummeted during coronavirus, falling 42% in June. Losing the wealthy for good could leave gaping holes in the budget. Cuomo might argue they left over COVID-19 but soaring gun crime is hardly an inducement to return after the pandemic passes.

Still, these Dems keep assuring us, “we’ve got this under control.”

Black journalist stabbed by Antifa member in Portland

Andrew Duncomb, a black (Trump supporting) journalist, was stabbed by a white Antifa member in Portland. The perpetrator, Blake Hampe, has been charged with a 2nd degree felony and held on $250,000 bail.

Duncomb said, “I was stabbed by a known Antifa member by the name of Blake Hampe…I felt like I was stabbed, or targeted, specifically due to my location being doxxed … 17 hours before I arrived.

Thankfully the journalist survived his ordeal but where is BLM? Why hasn’t rioting and looting restarted? A white man attempting to kill a black man fits their systemic racism narrative so are we to believe that expressing the wrong political views is a convenient out clause? Was it racially or politically motivated or both?

Duncomb believes he was stabbed because he debunks their narrative. Better off erasing him, Hampe guesses. Hampe also threatened to shank the individual who was with Duncomb at the time.

Peaceful protestors or domestic terrorists?

Nancy Pelosi and her constituents – poles apart

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, one of the most powerful people in the country, has been in charge of the California 12th District for the last 33 years. One wonders how her constituents could possible stomach anymore as homelessness and sanitation are reminiscent of a third world country.

San Francisco has had a Democrat Mayor since 1964. Contained in the video are comments about Mayor London Breed who residents hoped would make changes but lament she hasn’t done a thing. At least there is a city smartphone app which allows people to pinpoint poop patrol squads to clean up defecation in the streets.

One resident says he has voted Democrat as a liberal guy all his life but now believes they’ve gone too far left.

Why would anyone want socialists in charge in America!?

The truth about Portland

Ami Horowitz hit the streets in Portland to interview the “peaceful” protestors who were, as ABC so eloquently put, “intensified.”

Amazing how few blacks appear to be protesting under the banner of black lives matter which ought to tell us something. Still, those peacefully pushing for change used choice words such as

– violence

– burn it down

– looting

One of the interesting parts of his short clip is around the 3 minute mark where an irate gentleman correctly points out that most of the fools rioting aren’t even black. As we often point out, it’s only social justice warriors who preach to us what needs to be done without consulting the very groups impacted.

Way to go De Blasio

As murders and shootings skyrocket in NYC as NYPD officers quit in droves, Mayor Bill De Blasio thinks that the most pressing issue in NYC is a study of the official seal depicting a Native American and a white male settler and whether it is appropriate for the times.

Here we were thinking that Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was out of touch with the Census Cowboy as crime rages in her city.

 

When political correctness alienates half your audience

It appears that A&E Network decided to can it’s popular ‘Live PD‘ program about cops busting criminals and serving the community because it didn’t want to be seen to glorify the law enforcement profession.

As Forbes noted,

According to data from Nielsen, A&E’s prime time viewership between June 11 and July 19 was 498,000 people. That number is 49% less than from this period last year and the key demographics of adults 18-49 and 25-54 declined 55% and 53%, respectively.

At times, Live PD and it’s derivatives made up 85% of eyeballs for A&E which reached audiences of up to 1.9m viewers.

Seems like a case of corporate suicide. Let’s kneel at the altar of political correctness even when the paymasters weren’t asking for it.

Openly supporting Trump can cost your life

In the same way the Cato Poll showed 77% conservatives are afraid to publicly declare their political stance, black street preacher, Bernell Trammell was shot dead in broad daylight for expressing them.

BLM supporter kneels on white baby’s neck. Media silent

Who would have guessed the mainstream media would be silent about a black man kneeling on a white baby’s neck? The colour shouldn’t matter. Reprehensible behaviour is what it is. Pure evil.
