The wave of anti-police protests inspired major U.S. cities to punish their PDs. Los Angeles promised to slash their cops’ funding. Minneapolis wants to get rid of their cops altogether. And the Democrat mayor of New York has been working to under the police for years. Recently, he got rid of a plainclothes, anti-crime unit. Guess what happened next?
This new trend to hammer cops is totally insane. Liberals seem to want to blame an entire group—made up of hundreds of thousands of hard-working Americans—for the sins of a few. If we did that to any other group, particularly a racial group, it would be branded bigoted. Yet, because the left does this to cops, it is okay?
Democrats’ response to the wave violent protests has been to embrace calls to dismantle and weaken our police departments. Idiot leaders in major U.S. cities are already shooting themselves in the collective feet by limiting their police’s ability to secure their communities. Hey morons! What do you expect to do, when crime overwhelms your city? Ask a social worker to stop it?
In New York, they dismantled a plainclothes anti-crime unit that existed to prevent crime. They did this for seemingly no reason, as plainclothes cops were not involved in recent, high-profile confrontations. But they did it anyway, and New York saw one of its worst weeks ever.
Reports indicate that shootings in New York City surged last week following the NYPD’s decision to disband its plainclothes anti-crime unit.
The New York Post reports the unit was disbanded on Monday, June 15, 2020, and the week ended with “28 [shooting] incidents and 38 victims.”
During the same week in 2019 there were only 12 shootings.

It’s hard to process why Democrats would want fewer cops on the streets. The only reason we can find is that they think this will impress black voters. Because idiots like Black Lives Matter constantly accuse cops of killing black people (ignoring the overwhelming number of black deaths at the hands of criminals), Democrats seem to think all black Americans feel this way.
Not even close. The vast majority of Americans (black people included) want cops on the streets. Very few law-abiding, hard-working citizens think it’s a good idea to make cops’ jobs harder. Less than a week after New York gets rid of an anti-crime unit, shootings spike.
That’s in keeping with Mayor de Blasio’s (and Gov Cuomo’s) terrible movement to increase crime in the city. The mayor has been undermining the NYPD for years. The governor passed a no-bail law, an unthinkable move that puts criminals back on the streets immediately. Now, a unit devoted to preventing crime is gone.
Oh, what do you know! Violent crime is on the rise!
It’s clear that when Democrats are put in charge of a city, things get bad fast. They hurt the very group devoted to keeping a city safe. And when things go from bad to worse, these politicians sit back and do nothing.
And when Trump calls for law and order, they call him the enemy! Are these people taking crazy pills?
No, they’re not. They are just corrupt politicians doing what they can to get rich and powerful. We can’t blame a scorpion for stinging us, when we keep playing with it. It’s the people who keep electing Democrats who are taking the crazy pills. These people are the ones responsible for crime-infested streets from San Francisco to New York.
Until they wake up and stop election Dems to public office, things will never get better.
