Biden Admin Refuses To Call For End Of ‘Defund The Police’ Despite Violent Crime Surge

Published

During Thursday’s White House press briefing, the Biden administration refused to call on Democrat mayors to stop pushing for the defunding of police departments despite the nationwide surge in violent crime.

“The mayor in San Francisco is now trying to add police funding because when she pulled it to reinvest in communities, crime went way up,” a reporter said. “So would President Biden, as the leader of the Democratic Party, advise Democratic mayors not to pull money from police budgets?”

“So, I can say this: It is absolutely unacceptable when gun crimes are taking lives, when families don’t feel safe going to the park or their local schools when thieves feel impunity in stealing from retailers. So, we applaud the mayor making sure that there is more police presence in the city to protect Americans,” White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded. “And so, if you’re a mayor — this is what we say to local leaders: If you’re a mayor or a local leader, there is a crime problem in your community, we think you should step up and do something about it, just as many mayors are already doing. And we’re — and we’ve made clear that we’re going to offer federal support to help you do that and to keep communities safe.”

“As just one example: The Department of Justice announced, last month, grants to help put 50 more cops on the beat in San Francisco and funding for over 1,000 more community-oriented policies — policies, roles nationwide,” she continued. “The President has proposed doubling that program. So, we want to make sure that — that mayors and local leaders do indeed step up and make sure that they’re protecting their community.”

The movement to defund the police, which was pushed by Democrats – including President Biden during his presidential campaign – resulted in a surge in violent crime across the country. In Austin, Texas, for example, murder reportedly increased by 300% in one year.

“Austin doesn’t feel as safe recently. Because it isn’t,” the advocacy group Save Austin Now states on their website. “We’ve seen a series of city policy decisions over the last 2 years that have led to a surge in both violent crime and property crime against Austinites. A 300% increase in murders this year. A double-digit increase in property crimes such as burglaries and carjackings. And a massive increase in reports of “soft crimes” that make us uncomfortable, especially us women. This isn’t the Austin we know and love, and it doesn’t have to be.”

    They can add 1 million cops, it won’t matter. As long as zero-bail and catch-and-release policies prevail, crime will continue to surge.

    I just read a list of the Top 10 cities that have had more homicides YTD than any year in recorded history. There’s another list of cities that are very close to that record. Then there are the cities that have had more homicides in 2021 than they have had in over 30 years. It’s all Black violent crime. It’s all in Democrat run cities, typically with Black DA’s who are doing ‘catch and release’ and are failing to prosecute a large percentage of criminals being caught by the police. Why? BLM ‘owns’ Biden and his handlers. ‘The Squad’ is the voice of the latest incarnation of the Democrat party and old race-baiter and white-haters like Maxine Waters couldn’t be happier. BLM was created during the Obama/Biden administration. Racial divisiveness, hatred for police, misreporting of all Black victim/White police officer shootings, demonizing of Caucasian culture… Obama/Biden. The 2020 BLM rioting, looting, arson and murder spree? Biden said and did nothing. Harris even called it “necessary for Democracy”. Monkey see, Monkey do. Ghetto vermin are Black savages running wild. You reap what you sow.

    I’m so tired of all these democrats speaking with their hands. I know it’s to distract everyone, but if they were in speech competition they would never win. Look at all the great speeches and you never really see them moving their hands
