One shocking video shows how horrendous the crime problem has gotten in this Democrat-run city

Democrats are playing dumb when it comes to violent crime.

They think the problem will go away if they don’t address it.

But one shocking video shows how horrendous the crime problem has gotten in this Democrat-run city.

Pro-crime policies are ruining New York City.

In the 1970s and ‘80s, New York was beset by a horrible crime problem.

Many people were afraid to ride the subways, and it wasn’t uncommon for people to run to and from home so as not to be attacked at night.

Those problems are creeping back in New York thanks to years of bad policies and bad rhetoric from Democrats and their Fake News Media allies.

The problem of attacks on Asians has gotten so bad, there are long lines of people waiting for pepper spray.

Democrats and the so-called “mainstream” media have tried to characterize “Asian hate” as the result of Donald Trump referring to COVID as the Wuhan virus, but that is bunk.

In reality, violent crime is up across the board, particularly in major urban centers.

The murder rate increased by a jaw-dropping 30% in 2020, a the largest one-year increase in the country’s history.

Sadly, the trend has not slowed down much.

One of the main causes is pro-crime policies promoted by far-left prosecutors backed by George Soros.

They are obsessed with reducing the prison population, no matter what.

The consequence is there are more repeat criminals on the street who probably should not be.

Even former Mayor Bill de Blasio, a flat-out socialist, admitted it was a mistake to get rid of bail because there was a high recidivism rate among arrestees.

De Blasio lamented, “We had, for six years, steady decreases in crime across the board. There’s not a whole lot of other environmental things that have changed recently . . . It sort of stands out like a sore thumb that [bail reform] is the single biggest new thing in the equation and we saw an extraordinary jump . . . Of course there’s always a possibility this is plain statistical variation, that happens sometimes . . . But I think it’s pretty clear that there’s only one new major piece in the equation.”

Pro-crime policies do not work, but progressives continue to trot them out and expect different results.

Shoplifting has gotten so bad, pharmacies are closing down left and right in New York and other far-left strongholds like San Francisco.

The Democrat Media Complex didn’t help by pushing the “defund the police” movement and emboldening criminals.

Now liberals are being mugged by reality.
