I write this brief dissertation with acute anger, frustration, anxiety, and determination. I could go on and on about the horrible and disconcerting operation of the Biden administration and the absurd and grotesque positions and actions of the Democrat Party, including the hypocrisy involving Covid mandates, the outrageous southern border situation, the Afghanistan debacle, the constant attempt to reduce our freedoms, and the teaching of Critical Race Theory in our schools.
I wanted to simply mention a few of the innumerable inequities among many created by this vicious Democrat agenda that is hell-bent on changing America into something unrecognizable. The constitution is under attack and the freedoms we enjoy are in jeopardy. I frequently write about all of these things, however, the most pressing issue which affects our safety and security is the unbelievable increase in crime in our once-great American Cities!
Folks, This situation has been created by incompetent leadership. When a Mayor and Council in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, New York, and many others have eliminated cash bail and have significantly defunded their police departments, how could any reasonable or logical person expect any other outcome?
When a person is arrested for a crime, a judge used to set a significant cash bail and if the perpetrator couldn’t come up with the money, he went to jail until his trial. In most cases, violent criminals ended up in jail, unable to repeat their offenses. Now, these dangerous individuals are emboldened–permitted to rob, intimidate, and murder with impunity. Imagine your wife or your daughter being punched in the face for no reason, or car-jacked, or pushed off a subway platform to a horrible death, and the criminals are released the next day because no bail was required? How would you like to own a business that involved your life savings and work to have it broken into by roving gangs that steal all your inventory and put you out of business? Folks, these dangerous felons are permitted to do these terrible things because there are seemingly no consequences.
I say to myself, why would any reasonable and intelligent leader do away with the requirement for bail, to allow criminals to continuously repeat their heinous crimes? There is only one logical conclusion. The Mayors of these cities feel that it is justified to allow these people to commit crimes without punishment. No person, no business, not your wife, not your child, not your mother or grandmother. Nobody is safe on our streets and it is the fault of the leadership! I am sure some of you liberal sycophants will say that this is outrageous. Absolutely not, it is simply a statement of fact and it is accurate, whether you like it or not.
What is the solution? It is very simple. Bring back bail for criminals and increase the funding for police. However these liberal and corrupt Mayors will never do that. The only way things will change and crime properly controlled is to elect Republicans who will not tolerate this crazy and corrupt situation which is clearly intentional and for the purpose of disrupting our society and eventually turning it into a tyrannical, socialistic operation with no freedom to be safe and secure. This can no longer be tolerated and we the people must take back our country or we won’t have a country.
As always, your comments are welcome and appreciated.
