Crime spikes as Soros-funded DAs take charge: 'They're not progressive, they're rogue'
Washington Times ^ | August 20, 2020 | James Varney

Posted on 08/21/2020 5:43:32 PM PDT by karpov

Billionaire Democratic donor George Soros bankrolled the successful campaigns of a new crop of district attorneys who now preside over big cities with skyrocketing crime and frayed relationships with police departments.

Soros-backed DAs in Philadelphia, St. Louis, San Francisco and other cities have fired scores of experienced prosecutors and, as promised, stopped prosecuting low-level quality-of-life crimes such as disorderly conduct, vagrancy and loitering.

Their laissez-faire criminal justice philosophy bucks the get-tough “broken windows” approach, made famous by then-New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, which targets minor offenses to cut off the criminal element in the bud.

Put into practice, New York and other metropolises saw dramatic crime reductions throughout the ‘90s and ‘00s.

Those days are long gone.

“I would describe it as abysmal,” Jeff Roorda, general manager of the St. Louis Police Officers Association, said when asked about cops’ relationship with Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner. “It has gone from bad to worse and now there is no cooperation.”

The city has suffered a crime surge since the Soros-backed prosecutor took office. Violent crime rose by 8.8% since 2006. In terms of violent crimes per 100,000 residents, St. Louis has surpassed Detroit as America’s most violent city.

Ms. Gardner’s office did not respond to a request for comment.

Her 2016 campaign received more than $190,000 from PACs to which Mr. Soros is the sole or principal contributor. His PACs have poured at least $116,000 into her re-election this year.

Ms. Gardner cruised to a primary victory Aug. 4 and is expected to easily win reelection in November in the heavily Democratic city.

Homicides in Philadelphia, which fell below 300 annually for four consecutive years through 2016, have again shot up, rising by 34% in 2020 and hitting 257 as of Aug. 3, according to police department figures.

Actually, they’re breaking their oath of office and should be impeached.

Maybe that’s what the majority of citizens in those cities want.

If not, they know what to do.

There are SUPEREVIL in the world. Many are Americans. $oro$ and Gate$ are #1 and #2. UNTOUCHABLE. Above ANY justice system.

LADY MACBETH

Out, damned spot! Out, I say!—One, two. Why, then, ’tis time to do ’t. Hell is murky!—Fie, my lord, fie! A soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?

We did the play in 8th grade jr high school when I was much younger. Betty Jo Barber played, LADY MACBETH. I had a very small part.

What middle school even does such a play these days? My mom made my costume. My dad helped me make a crossbow. Sheesh.

Local LEOs and honest assistant DAs are going to have step up and remove them.

Legally, if possible.

This guy should have his hands tied behind his back, then a corona virus mask put on his evil face, a MAGA cap put on his head, a Trump for President t-shirt put on him, and then be pushed out into the middle of an Antifa riot.

The DNC, party of the KKK, Jim Crow and Joe Biden has figured out new ways to legally kill the descendents of their former slaves, blacks in Blue Cities, like New York City, Chicago!:

Leo Terrell: ‘Joe Biden Has the Mindset of a Plantation Owner
townhall ^ | 08/07/2020 | Leah Barkoukis

1. Fund Planned Parenthood to slaughter unborn black babies whose Black Baby Lives Mean Nothing.
2. Defund the police in blue cities like Chicago, NY City, ______________.
3. Elect Joe Bidementia as our president!

Thanks to “defund the police” and the Democrat Blue cities going along with it, violent crime including homicide is surging in most of America’s largest blue cities. The raw numbers are terrible for Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, and other very blue and large American cities.

e2.

Weekly BLM Kills in Chicagostan: https://heyjackass.com/

Hold massive BLM protests in Blue Cities with high Covid 19 infection rates. Like the one planned in DC for teachers, coordinated by the DNC’s long time BLM overseer, Al Sharpton.

Then, let the killer virus Covid 19 take out more blacks participating in the protests involving 100,000 BLMers, packed together, yelling and screaming while protesting. That will spread the CV 19 into their BLM mobs to take it home with them.

Marxist Democrat urban areas will become surreal 21st century ghost towns. Residential, commercial real estate and populations are declining daily. Soon, they will be haunted mostly by the strange and deranged. Street cops don’t even want to accompany the coroners to pick up the black bodies much less perform active policing or peacekeeping.

It’s strange times in New York City. COVID — and confused government policies — has commercial buildings desolate in Manhattan. Few are returning to work in their offices despite politicians proclaiming otherwise. Restaurants can open for food but not for drinks. Gatherings are forbidden — unless it is to protest. Crime is through the roof, months after elected officials allowed looting and forced police to turn a blind eye.

Nazi’s didn’t want to kill everyone either, just the ones they didn’t want.
