Bay Area residents are outraged as these potential budget cuts open the door for more crime

Most Democrat-controlled parts of America suffer from rampant crime, out-of-control costs of living, and homelessness. 

Yet people continue to elect left-wing radicals who refuse to change their ways.

But Bay Area residents are outraged as these potential budget cuts open the door for more crime.

San Francisco just proved that they are not willing to take crime seriously 

Crime has exploded in San Francisco ever since the George Floyd riots four years ago. 

Rather than hold dangerous criminals accountable, lawmakers have upended the legal justice system to protect career criminals.

To add insult to injury, these lawmakers slashed police budgets as well.

On Tuesday, San Francisco Sheriff Paul Miyamoto was forced to beg to the San Francisco City Board of Supervisors for more funding.

These pleas come after Mayor London Breed suggested sweeping 10% cuts to all public budgets, including public safety. 

Meanwhile, crime has skyrocketed and Bay Area prisons have become war zones.

Just last April, San Francisco’s largest prison in San Bruno went on lockdown after reports emerged of inmates attacking jail staff. 

Ken Lomba, President of the San Francisco Deputy Sheriff’s Association also spoke in front of the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday. 

He argued that the reduction in funding for prisons combined with lower staffing and more inmates have created a perfect storm.

In an earlier Zoom meeting on Tuesday, Lomba pointed out that, “I think the sheriff needs to prioritize increasing staffing because that’s what prevents the lockdowns.”

He added, “That’s what reduces and deters fights. Prisoner-on-prisoner fights. That’s what prevents our deputies from being attacked.”

Shamann Walton, a member of the Board of Supervisors, retorted back saying that there are other ways to improve public safety other than policing. 

Walton claimed that, “I would agree with the sheriff’s department that they don’t necessarily need to provide the same level of reductions as the police department.”

He added that, “Most certainly the police department’s budget is over-bloated and there are things we need to do around public safety that just don’t involve law enforcement.”

At the same meeting, Supervisors requested additional security measures for upcoming LGBT events, further angering law enforcement officers.

Many of these officers feel as if San Francisco policymakers only care about safety for events they care about.

“Woke” insanity has brought the once-great City of San Francisco to its knees 

San Francisco used to have a reputation as the crown jewel of America, fostering some of the greatest businesses in American history. 

Over the last several decades, Democrat lawmakers have destroyed the City, allowing criminals and homeless people to run wild.

Every day more and more people and businesses flee from the Bay Area as a result.

Many experts predict that an economic collapse could come to the area if changes are not made quickly.
