Guess the common denominator: US cities set record-breaking crime/gun violence/homicides in 2020

Many in the media are blaming the increase of gun violence/homicides in U.S. cities on the Wuhan virus.

Just how bad was 2020 for violence in some American cities? Take a look at these headlines:

Seattle police report record-setting homicides in 2020
Chicago ends 2020 with 769 homicides as gun violence surges
St. Louis’ 2020 homicide rate is highest in 50 years
Shootings in Portland more than double in 2020
NYC ends 2020 with 41% spike in homicides
Minneapolis homicides and shootings up 64% compared to last four years
Milwaukee ends 2020 with record 189 homicides
San Francisco homicides are up amid the coronavirus pandemic
LA’s 2020 Murder Rate 25% Above Last Year
Louisville shatters record for homicides, nonfatal shootings in 2020

Gee, I wonder what all these cities have in common?

So is the Wuhan virus really to blame for this increase in voilence?

I’d argue that the soft-on-crime, “criminal justice reform” DAs contributed. I’d argue that the demorat mayors who allowed rioting and looting contributed. I’d argue that the demorats who support #defundthepolice contributed. I’d argue that demorat mayors who allowed Antifa free-reign (Seattle and Portland) contributed.

Most importantly, I’d argue that the criminals pulling the triggers were most responsible.

Yet we know that the media much prefers to stick to their narratives rather than the facts.

Why you shouldn’t trust any of ’em: Rules for thee but not for me

Remember these scenes from June 2020 of the multiple George Floyd funerals?

Then how about this scene on Sunday?

There’s a list here of all the hypocrites who have implemented rules/lockdowns/mandates for YOU to follow yet they themselves have no intention of following.

These hypocrites instilling fear in you have no problem violating their own rules.The only problem they have is one of a desire for control.

Why the delay in getting Wuhan vaccines to residents in WA, NY and CA?

Here in my small town (county population 100k) in Oklahoma we are on schedule for Phase 3 of vaccinations to begin tomorrow. They’ve already vaccinated healthcare workers, residents at long-term care facilities, fire & police, teachers, etc. Phase 3 starts tomorrow and is for people age 65 and older. I saw on Facebook last night that the County was working over the weekend to schedule appointments and they are already booked for this week.

Vaccinations in demorat-run states aren’t moving so smoothly. A friend of mine in Washington State (who is 60 and has a heart condition) says she probably won’t receive hers until June. (As of Dec. 30 Washington State received hundreds of thousands of doses yet dispersed only about 59,000 vaccinations.)

In Calfornia, the problem appears to be that as many as 50% of healthcare workers refuse to get the vaccine. At least that’s what the leaders are blaming it on. They say “an issue impacting the take-up of the vaccines may also be the reluctance of health care workers who have been put first in line to receive protection from COVID-19.”

I don’t see why that means that the vaccines aren’t available for those next in line, if they move quickly. Yet that would require counties to be highly organized and efficient in distribution of vaccines.

Look at these pathetic numbers out of New York:

Yet the guy tweeting the above is this guy:

You’d think the guy who is the Chair of Health Committee could do something to push out vaccinations a little more efficently and quickly.

These demorat-run states are still facing severe restrictions & lockdowns and are on day 300-something of “two weeks to flatten the curve.”

I’m sure there’s absolutely NO reason whatsoever they are moving so slow in dispersing vaccines. None whatsoever…

Metropolitan Police arrest UK man for hugging people

Notice this man didn’t force himself upon anyone at all. Yet the Metropolitan Police arrest him anyway for endangering people.

This is NOT the world I want to live in. The bureaucrats have WAY TOO MUCH CONTROL. And I am almost certain that at some point some one will go postal over these INSANE restrictions. I am sure of that.

Criminal justice reform: San Francisco man on parole for robbery kills two in hit-and-run

San Francisco District Attorney, Chesa Boudin, recently won his position and ran on reforming the criminal justice system. The son of Weather Underground terrorists, he wanted to tackle racial bias in the criminal justice system and overhaul the bail system.

Translation: He wants to go soft on criminals.

In January last year, his office announced that they will no longer ask for cash bail as a condition for a defendant’s pretrial release. Instead, prosecutors would use a “risk-based system” and weigh whether a defendant might flee or pose a threat to public safety.

I wonder if this perp had to pay any cash to be paroled: “A parolee driving a stolen car struck and killed two pedestrians in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood Thursday and was captured after fleeing the scene on foot, police said.”

Details from MSN:

“Police said the suspect, a 45-year-old San Francisco resident, was on parole for robbery and was driving a vehicle that had been reported stolen at about 4 p.m. when he struck a car, then two pedestrians at Second and Mission streets.

After striking the pedestrians, police said, the suspect got out of the vehicle and fled into a nearby commercial building, where police found him within minutes and detained him.

“Absolutely awful and tragic fatal hit-and-run today in SOMA,” San Francisco Supervisor Matt Haney wrote on Twitter. “A person should not need to risk their lives when they walk or bike in SOMA or downtown. The streets are still far too dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists.

Read the whole story here.

No worries though as Chesa has a solution to ensure this never happens again:

I’d argue that the “system failure” is that demorats cannot accept this fact: You can never make enough laws to guarantee good behavior from people who are willing to break the law. Some of them just need to be thrown in jail for a long time.

The priorities of Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot

Chicago Mayor has her priorities double standards when it comes to Wuhan virus “restrictions.”

Back in April the good mayor violated her own social distancing mandates to get her hair cut. You see, she’s in the public eye so that made her violation A-OK.

Back in June the good mayor did nothing about a massive rally. In fact, she “encouraged the continuance of peaceful protests.”

Yet on New Year’s Eve the good mayor was very concerned about gatherings and shutdown a couple of parties and issued citations because they violated Wuhan virus rules.

According to MyFoxChicago, the city shut down two parties on Near Year’s Eve and issued seven notices to businesses for violating Wuhan virus restrictions. Citizens were doing their part to help enforce the good mayor’s rules: “City officials said they responded to 21 calls for violations of COVID-19 regulations.”

Meanwhile, the criminals keep doing what they do best in Chiraq: Ten people were shot and two killed to start out the three-day holiday weekend.

And Chiraq ended 2020 with 769 homicides — 274 more than the previous year and the most since 2016.

If you look at the Wuhan virus stats in Chiraq (don’t just read the MyFoxChicgo headlines), you’ll see that their main data dashboard highlights “positivity” rate (which has been on a decline since mid-Novembeer). And their hospital capacity numbers are not periously dangerous: ICU beds occupied are at 76.6% (pretty normal for this time of year) with Wuhan virus patients accounting for 22.1% of the ICU beds.

But the good mayor has to shutdown parties because it’s all about control. That’s her priority.

Seattle Parks’ $248M budget gets you this “safe” and “welcoming” environment

The other day, Christopher Rufo shared pictures from a Seattle Park.

Rufo is a writer who once ran for Seattle City Council. He dropped out of the race due to tolerance bullying of Seattle progressives. Read more about that story here.

Here’s what the Seattle Parks and Recreation deems to be “safe, welcoming opportunities to play, learn, contemplate, and build community:”

This is what $248,611,313 of taxpayer dollars gets you in progressive Seattle.

Have a wonderful day in this Seattle park!

Seattle repeat offender released with no charges; hours later nearly kills a man

Seattle City bureaucrat, I mean attorney, Pete Holmes

Seattle City Attorney Peter Holmes is lenient with repeat offenders. Last February in a blog post entitled, “How many convictions does it take for Seattle City Attorney to place a homeless criminal in jail after his latest assault?,” I told you how the goot attorney would not charge and throw in a jail a man who had 72 convictions (including 14 felonies). This was after the perp attempted ANOTHER assault.

Just par for the course with these progressives who want to keep criminals free in the name of “criminal justice reform.”

I’m sure 29-year-old repeat offender Ardalla Jama is quite pleased with Holmes’ decision. Jama was released from King County Jail last weekend after attacking a security guard in Seattle (he was given a conditional release from jail). Jama was re-arrested a few hours later for a brutal attack that ended with that victim being hospitalized in intensive care. Details from MSN:

“Ardalla Jama, 29, is facing several charges in connection with a fight Saturday night at City Hall Park, which is located a few blocks away from the county jail.

Prosecutors said Jama allegedly kicked and stomped the victim’s head after he fell to the ground, and a witness said Jama continued his attack on the victim even after he lost consciousness. The victim, whose identity was not immediately disclosed, suffered significant wounds to his face and head. Information about his condition was pending.

Following that attack, Jama was again taken into custody, marking his sixth arrest so far this year in cases that often involve violence.”

Read the whole story here.

Jama’s has previously been arrested for assault, malicious mischief, harassment and property destruction. He was also charged with felony harassment in 2017, but was found incompetent to stand trial due to concerns about his mental fitness.

Seattle, like many demorat-run cities who are soft on criminals, has seen an increase in shootings and crime in general. Seattle’s homicides are the highest in decades and burglaries, arson, and motor vehicle thefts are also up.

With demorats in charge, this is what you get when you want “progress” in your city.

California restaurant owner fights back against LA health department

If the California restaurant industry is going to survive (big, fast-food chains excluded as they face little to no shutdowns), they are going to need more business owners like this guy (owner of Bread & Barley):

FYI: Two days after the incident, the Bread & Barley received a notice of closure from the Los Angeles Department of Public Health.

Bread & Barley posted on their Instagram: “The police department was supportive and only trying to keep things peaceful! I have no issue with law enforcement and I’ve never had any issues with law enforcement.”

Check out their Instagram here.

If the “entertainment” business can stay open in California, then the bureaucrats should be able to figure out a way to keep ALL businesses open. But we all know that everyone “open for business” is not their goal.

It’s about CONTROL.
