Less police support, masks worn in public, criminals released without bail...Anyone with logic would have guessed all crime would be higher in 2020. The question is: why is this data released almost 9 full months later?
Are people expected to forget that the insane policies enforced by the left existed and contributed to an increase in murder?
Is it now that so many questionable policies are already accepted that we can announce murder sky-rocketed?
Or is it that enough time has passed since the election and people have stopped fighting over the “stolen” election that it is now safe to release this damaging data?
The FBI says homicides in the U.S. in 2020 increased nearly 30% over the previous year, the largest one-year jump since it began keeping records. Experts suggest the increase is a "unique situation," due to a confluence of factors, including the pandemic. https://t.co/Dou81yDBM5— The Associated Press (@AP) September 28, 2021
I’m sure that if we ask AOC for her opinion, she’ll say murders are up because “people just need to feed their families” or some other moronic comment.
AOC on increased NYC crime: "Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren't paying their rent & are scared to pay their rent & so they go out & they need to feed their child & they don't have money so… they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry." pic.twitter.com/oHSTWWJZ6a— The Hill (@thehill) July 12, 2020
As long as there are voters who look up to people like AOC, we are in trouble.
Policies will continue to make things worse.
