Americans are tired of DAs who won’t prosecute crimes, and who release violent criminals onto the streets over and over with no punishment. The soft-on-crime policies and actual encouragement to commit crimes coming from the Democratic Party have unleashed a wave of crime in America unseen since the 80s, and maybe even worse. Five cities in America are already on their way to record-breaking homicide numbers in 2022. The Daily Mail’s Andrea Blanco reports:
Washington, Baltimore, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Milwaukee are on track to surpass their already-soaring homicide rates from last year.
Last year, the FBI warned that homicides in the US rose nearly 30 percent from 2020 and overall violent crime rose for the first time in four years.
The stunning trend in homicides has continued this year. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the homicide rate leaped 24.7 percent from the year-to-date compared to the same period last year.
Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, Georgia, have seen a 13.4 percent and 13.3 percent increase in homicides, respectively, Fox first reported.
Meanwhile, law enforcement in Baltimore, Maryland, has reported 7.7 percent more homicides this year. Los Angeles tailgates the Charm City with a 7.3 percent spike.
The surge in homicides, which has not shown signs of slowing down anytime soon, has been attributed, in part, to COVID-19 hardships.
The rising violence has also been blamed on liberal cities’ lax bail policies and their support for the defund the police movement after protests over policing erupted nationally in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis in 2020.
People are being killed in Los Angeles at a faster pace than in 2021, when homicides hit a 15-year high.
So far this year, LA has seen 162 slayings – 11 more than the same time last year.
Assaults are also up nearly 5 percent from 2021, with police so far recording 8,779 incidents.
Last week, a now-dead gunman killed two Southern California police officers in a motel shootout.
Justin William Flores, 35, was on probation for a prior gun charge at the time he committed the killings. The illegal handgun sentence was handed to Flores in 2021, as part of a lenient plea deal made possible by lax prosecution laws from DA George Gascon.
