The Nightmare for Minorities of "Progressive" Law Enforcement

We don't need to guess about what liberal policies like widespread sentencing reduction and less proactive policing will do to our citizens, and minorities in particular.  We already have a good deal of evidence.

The most recent is yesterday's story out of a one-party, "progressive" city, Chicago:  "Homicide Rate Surging for Black Chicagoans, Report Finds."  Mayor Rahm Emanuel told us why in a moment of remarkable candor last fall.

Then there's the murder wave overtaking another one-party, "progressive" (and largely black) city, Baltimore. I covered that story a couple of days ago, with special thanks to "space to destroy" Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and "plenty-of-talk-but-no-convictions" State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby.

Then there's the national picture on murder, a picture uglier and more ominous now than it has been for decades.  It is true, as former Attorney General Eric Holder said last night, that "violent crime has gone down since President Obama took office." What Mr. Holder neglected to mention was that (1) it has gone down in significant measure because of policies he, the President, and Hillary Clinton are doing their best to reverse, and (2) since his successor was installed in April 2015, the murder rate in America's largest cities (where blacks tend to be concentrated) has skyrocketed.  If the trend that has been in place since Loretta Lynch took the reins continues, by Christmas, we will have lost six years of gains against violent crime.

If this is what you want for America's future, you know where to throw your support.


Rahm Emanuel, as bad as he is (remember he was on the Freddie Mac board when the books were cooked) is not a progressive lunatic. He fundamentally gets that a city has to be livable for the people who pay the taxes. The problem is that the lunatics in Chicago have way too much power. On top of that, there is the general and awful lawlessness of city government.

The Denial & Obfuscation Master
takes on "Homicide Rate Surging...Report Finds"

"The one thing that I think is important to recognize is this idea that America
is somehow on the verge of collapse, this vision of violence and chaos
everywhere, doesn't really jibe with the experience of most people,"
Obama said during a news conference at the White House. "I
hope people the next morning walked outside and birds were
chirping and the sun was out,"

~ And ISIS is the JV team.
Remember this exchange?

New Yorker Editor Remnick: "But that JV team just took over Fallujah."
President Barack Obama: "I understand. But when you say took over Fallujah –"
