In America today, crime has the strongest grip on states and communities that are run by leaders within the Democrat Party.
Over the past couple of years, Democrats have decided to throw law and order to the wayside, while opening the floodgates for lawlessness.
Democrats did this when they “reformed” bail so that poor offenders would be easily let back onto the streets after their arrests. Defunding the police and even letting offenders out of jail early are other ways that Democrats cast aside law and order for anarchy.
Across the United States, one of the cities that’s been hit hardest by crime is Los Angeles, California. Now, the Los Angeles County sheriff has some news that should put everyone on edge, according to Breitbart News.
Distressing News Out of Los Angeles
During an interview with Fox News, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva explained there’s some serious disconnect with the leadership of Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon.
Villanueva warned that despite Los Angeles’ serious crime problem, Gascon is living in a bubble. This bubble entails only paying attention to people who are Black Lives Matter advocates or coming from the office of a public defender.
The remarks of the Los Angeles County Sheriff then stated that anyone else who doesn’t fit under these umbrellas is being ignored and disregarded by the district attorney.
Unfortunately, these statements are not an exaggeration by any stretch of the imagination. Across the United States, a series of left-wing district attorneys have rallied behind the idea that holding criminals accountable for their actions is mean.
At the same time, these district attorneys don’t care about the horrors they’re unleashing on communities by letting offenders get away with a slap on the wrist here and there. Soft on crime policies are not conducive with public safety, nor will they ever be.
A Backdoor Means of Defunding the Police
Since taking political backlash for the “defund the police” movement, higher-ups within the Democrat Party are scrambling to convince everyone that this isn’t what they’re about.
However, the behavior of Gascon and other liberal district attorneys in America tells a different story. When these officials let offenders go free and without bail after law enforcement takes them into custody, they’re undoing the work of the police.
Many officers, to this very day, have reported lower morale. Resignations and retirements have increased; meanwhile, finding new police officers is getting more and more difficult. In the long run, what left-wing district attorneys are doing with soft-on-crime policies is another form of defunding the police.
If some changes aren’t made very quickly, America’s public safety levels are going to deteriorate even further.
