Ever since the race riots of 2020, crime has become a common part of life in America.
This is especially true in major East Coast cities, even more so in blue states that took over the top measures to slash police budgets.
But now carjackings have skyrocketed in major East Coast cities and the usual suspects might shock you.
There is no denying that crime has gotten out of control in this country.
No matter where you go, what time of day, or how many people you are with, nobody is safe.
Of course this crime spike is a direct result of the radical Left’s war on police two years ago during the race riots of 2020.
But carjackings in particular are increasing, and just about every city in America has seen a drastic increase of carjackings over the last couple of years.
In fact, in major cities such as New York City and Philadelphia, carjackings have increased by about 200% over the last couple of years.
In some cities, the increase is as high as 280%.
But who is committing these crimes is shocking and appalling.
It has been reported that a disproportionate amount of these violent thefts are being committed by young people.
Clearly these young people are not being held accountable by their parents and have nothing better to do than wreak havoc on their communities.
And following the race riots of 2020, these young people undoubtedly feel emboldened to do whatever they want without any fear of repercussions.
This is especially true now that many major cities such as New York and Philadelphia have completely changed their bail policies, making it virtually impossible to hold people in prison, even for serious crimes like carjackings.
However, it looks like some concerned citizens and law enforcement officials have had enough.
Just the other day, a delegation of law enforcement officers across the nation convened on Capitol Hill to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee to discuss ways to crack down on these crimes.
Of course, these talks are likely to get absolutely nowhere.
After all, the federal government is nearly incapable of creating meaningful change.
As the great Ronald Reagan once said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.”
