    How do we drive down violent crime? At one point in the not-so-distant past, America figured out the answer — lock up violent criminals rather than releasing them. Chicago may have reinvented this wheel over the past month, as local law enforcement announced earlier today. Homicides dropped almost by half in August and shootings declined by double digits: Homicides and shootings reported last month in Chicago were down from a month ago, according to data collected by Chicago police.The 63 murders reported in August was a 45% decrease from July, while the number of shootings decreased by 15%, Chicago...

    I mean, this isn’t totally shocking for MSNBC, but it doesn’t mean it isn’t insane and irresponsible. We all know the situation in Democratic-run cities is out of control. Since George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis on May 25, urban America has been set aflame. Seattle had armed lefty militias seize portions of the city. Portland is a total mess. Chicago is a mess, with shootings ravaging the city. In New York City, it’s reverting back to the warzone that is was back in the early 1990s. And all of this as left-wing city councils move to “defund the police.”...
