House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that the crime surge across the nation is real and must be stopped even though she backed BLM efforts to defund police departments nationwide.
Nine American cities hit record high crime rates throughout 2021 and Nancy Pelosi and the left are starting to realize they backed the wrong side. “There is an attitude of lawlessness in our country that springs from I don’t know where,” Pelosi said. Defunding the Police efforts were major campaign stances of many liberal candidates in the 2020 election cycle.
Nancy Pelosi’s home district in San Francisco has seen a massive increase in smash and grab crimes in storefronts. Additionally, across California vehicle owners are leaving trunks open overnight to avoid destroyed windows. San Francisco was one of the major cities where police defunding efforts were implemented.
Overall, the increase in crime across the country is much greater in Democrat controlled states and cities. The lawlessness must stop and it can be blamed on the left’s incompetence and inability to hold criminals accountable.
