And The Overwhelmed Police Seem Powerless To Stop It
This country is not the same place that it was ten years ago. In fact, it is not even close to the same place that it was five years ago. Violent crime is out of control in many of our major cities, and there aren’t enough police to handle it all. So in many cases a police officer literally never shows up when someone reports a serious crime. Unfortunately, the number of serious crimes just keeps going up. In 2020, we witnessed the worst spike in violent crime in U.S. history, but 2021 was supposed to be a year when rates of violent crime started going back down. Of course that didn’t happen, and now 2022 is on pace to be even worse than either 2020 or 2021…
At this point, violent crime is up 25.8 percent in New York City compared to the first half of last year.
That is staggering.
Of course New York City still has a way to go before it gets as bad as Chicago.
In the Windy City, there are hundreds of thousands of “high-priority emergency service calls” each year, and last year there were no police available to respond to those calls 52 percent of the time…
So if you are the victim of a violent crime in Chicago, your odds of having a police officer available to help you are about the same as guessing a coin flip correctly.
The following is a partial list of “high-priority emergency service calls” for which no police officer was available in 2021…
Despite numbers such as these, there are lots of people out there that are relentlessly calling for the police to be “defunded”.
Do they want total anarchy?
Because that is what would happen.
