The sad truth is, most American cities are simply not safe, even if you are just visiting.
Violence has skyrocketed in recent years due to many major cities completely overhauling their criminal justice systems to appease the radical Left following the riots of 2020.
And just when you thought things couldn’t get any more violent, the unthinkable happened to an innocent lady during a visit to a public park.
Of all of the cities that are facing a crime spike, Los Angeles is one of the most extreme examples.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, crime has risen across the board in Los Angeles as of late.
Per LAPD data, nonviolent property crimes are up 3.7%, violent crimes are up 6.2%, robbery is up 5.2% and most shockingly, homicide is up 13% since 2020 and 52.2% since 2019.
Those numbers should terrify everyone, not just the residents of Los Angeles.
Every day, innocent people are being slaughtered and taken advantage of because the radical Left who controls Los Angeles is far more interested in pursuing ridiculous social justice projects instead of protecting the residents of their decaying city.
For proof, just look at what happened on the campus of the University of Southern California just the other day.
A woman was sitting in her car at Exposition Park, which is located right next to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum when a car rolled up and shot her vehicle over a dozen times.
In what can only be described as a miracle, the woman did not die, but she is severely injured and her vehicle is shot to pieces.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, “The person is blessed to survive something of this magnitude,”
The sad thing is, seemingly random acts of violence such as this are a daily occurrence in major cities like Los Angeles.
Violent crime like this can only be stopped if the people running our nation’s urban centers commit themselves to work with law enforcement to put violent offenders behind bars.
Unfortunately, that seems like a pipe dream these days given that most cities are run by extremists who would rather see their cities burn to the ground in the name of social justice.
That is why it is up to voters to finally put an end to this madness.
Innocent people should not have to die because of politicians refusing to do their job.
