    Defund-the-police Democrat calls for more police as her district continues brutal crime spiral: 'I feel betrayed by the department'

    ... San Francisco City Supervisor Hillary Ronen announced last week that she is "begging" for more police officers for her crime-ravaged city, particularly in the district she oversees...

    During the Mostly Peaceful Riots®, the mayor of San Fran proposed a $35 million cut to the SFPD. Ronen called that "a slap in the face" and nuked $120 million from SFPD's budget. "I want to make it clear that I believe strongly in defunding the police and reducing the number of officers on our force..."

    ... Mission, Bayview, and Ingleside, all overseen by Ronen, accounted for 41% of arson incidents in the city during that time period; 18% of the larceny thefts; 29.8% of burglaries; 38% of assaults; 37% of robberies; 36% of rapes; 50% of motor vehicle thefts; and 66% of murders. At least half of San Francisco's reports of human trafficking this year have also taken place in Ronen's district... "It hurts. And I feel betrayed by the department. I feel betrayed by the mayor. I feel betrayed by the priorities of the city..."

    She's admitted the city doesn't have the money to shovel out millions in "reparations" to black residents, but she's doing it anyway. I have zero sympathy for Americans living in that cesspool. You voted for all of it, morons.

    LESS COPS. MORE "COMMUNITY" WORKERS. We must combat crime with LOVE! That's what the left says anyway and they are super smart right?

    Dollar Tree (DLTR) Plunges After Profit Tumbles As Thieves Pillage Stores
    [​IMG]
    "While we are seeing early results from our initiatives, we are not immune to the external pressures affecting all of retail, notably, the margin impact of elevated shrink and the product mix shift to consumables”

    HIGH END RETAIL HOLDING UP FINE.

    'And, like so many other suffering retailers, DLTR has Soros-DAs to thank for its woes: while the company showed an increase in sales, which rose 6.1% in the quarter to $7.32 billion, it slashed its profit outlook due to shrink — a polite word for theft (EPS of $1.47 missed estimates of $1.52).'

    “While we are seeing early results from our initiatives, we are not immune to the external pressures affecting all of retail, notably, the margin impact of elevated shrink and the product mix shift to consumables,” CEO Rick Dreiling said in a news release. “While we are maintaining our full-year 2023 sales outlook, we are adjusting our EPS outlook as we expect the elevated shrink and unfavorable sales mix to persist through the balance of the year. We still expect earnings to be more back-end loaded this year as the benefits of lower ocean freight rates flow through.”

    It's much more difficult in the digital age to mimic Joseph Goebbells; particularly his favorite sophistry of peddling a lie often and loudly until it's accepted as truth by the sheeple. You need to update your tactics, bro. A leftist reading from the nazi playbook - color me unsurprised.

    Do you live in a vacuum? That's was all the Democrats were screaming for during the 2020 riots. They were pointing to the "summer of love" and the "wonderful" community of "Chop" in Seattle, Washington ... until the somebody got killed and the criminals had robbed all the stores.

    Now the Democrats are accusing the Republicans of advocating for a cut in the FBI's budget as a diversionary tactic. The FBI needs to be REFORMED because it has become a political police force for the Democrats under Christopher Wray and Merrick Garland, not defunded.

    That is absurdly false. Plenty of them are on record for defunding.

    I noticed that you completely failed to refute his point.

    No matter how much you drag it off topic or attempt to.....

    You're not going to get away with peddling your false information that no Democrats wanted to defund the police.

    just showing you some say they want to do that on the right, do you think most on the right want those things? same is true on the left, defund the police is not what most on the left want, what they wanted was someone else to handle medical emergencies as police are not trained for it, not want to do it

    do you agree that those on the right that want those things are wrong? can just say, 'yeah, just like this, that is wrong too', then we move on

    The subject reminds me of a post I was reading on a local Facebook group where someone was complaining about the hospital...

    It's kind of similar to the police...

    The same sort of people that complain about both will not hesitate to pick up the phone just as soon as they need to and expect them to be there at their beck and call.

    Much of what I heard about defund the police didn’t consist of any nuance. Some of the Democrats that were calling for defunding them were speaking of removing their ability to act as paramilitary forces.

    We need to remove the bad eggs and promote the good ones.

    Here is a fun infographic

    None that I know of. The only people I know making such a claim are progressives creating a straw man

    Does anyone notice how the crime rates in all the cities, where @cd8ed claims they are spending too much money, are rising? Obviously if we spend less money on the police in those cities, the crime rates will fall, right?

    Only if you believe in progressive, pro criminal logic. In the world of progressivism, criminals are the victims and the people whom the criminals prey upon have gotten what they deserved or are just chronic complainers.

    We should spend the money on social workers instead of the police in the world of progressivism. And by extension, more money on funerals after the criminals have blown the social workers away.

    exactly, "defund the police" was bad messaging, the message was really to demilitarize the police

    The questions remain as to why we are spending more per capita on our police forces than other nations spend on their military and we have higher rates of crime and incarceration.
