One Congresswoman who wanted to defund the police got a shocking wake-up call

Democrats can no longer control their radical urges.

They are defending insane proposals like defunding the police.

But one Congresswoman who wanted to defund the police got a shocking wake-up call.

Democrats continue to be mugged by reality.

Joe Biden’s administration is a perfect example of that.

But one Congresswoman who wanted to defund the police literally got mugged in broad daylight.

The Blaze reports:

A U.S. Congresswoman from Pennsylvania might regret voting for a “defund the police” bill after she was the victim of an armed carjacking incident in Philadelphia.

Police say Mary Gay Scanlon was carjacked at about 2:45 p.m. on Wednesday after attending a tour with other members of Congress.

Scanlon was walking to her vehicle when two armed men approached her and demanded the keys to her blue 2017 Acura MDX. The robbers also made off with her personal cell phone, her government cell phone, her purse, and her identification.

Violent crime has surged across the country, which has caused even deep blue areas to back off of the “defund the police” rhetoric of last year.

Both Oakland and Minneapolis – the site of George Floyd’s death – voted to increase police funding in light of upticks in crime.

Philadelphia is home of district attorney Larry Krasner, one of many left-wing prosecutors backed by George Soros.

The city’s murder rate has reached record levels on Krasner’s watch.

Krasner recently said of the spike in crime, “We don’t have a crisis of lawlessness . . . We don’t have a crisis of crime. We don’t have a crisis of violence.”

However, the victims of violent crime would probably disagree.

Krasner and leftist DAs are more concerned with criminals than their victims.

In their view, criminals are merely victims of American society, so the compassionate thing to do is let them out of prison with virtually no consequence.

Democrats’ pro-crime policies have proven to be ineffective time and time again.

Most crime, particularly violent crime, is committed by serial offenders.

Giving them a slap on the wrist is not going to make them stop committing crimes.

A few months back, former California Senator Barbara Boxer was robbed in Oakland, another city run by leftists that’s experiencing a crime wave.

Crime is one of the many reasons that people are packing up and fleeing blue states in favor of red states.

The high taxes and burdensome regulations become a lot less tolerable when the streets aren’t even safe.
