DC Decides to Stop Defunding the Police after Crime Surges

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report discusses how urban gun violence is causing one Democrat Mayor to rethink the defund the police movement.

Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that the city will be adding 170 police officers and requested new funding of $11 million. Just last year the city council voted to defund the police by $15 million.

The mayor’s announcement comes after the city saw a 16-year high in their homicide rate and rising gun violence. Maybe liberal crime policy isn’t the best way to keep your citizens safe.

Rubin calls it “absolutely insane” as the city seeks to rebound from high rates of homicides over the past year. One high-profile case involved a recent shooting as a National Major League baseball game that sent fans scrambling for safety during the nationally televised event.

The video asks if you take the police out of a bade neighborhood, do you really think the bad guys are really going to decide it’s time to stop committing crimes? Or is it more likely those who commit crimes decide to commit more, since there is no longer anyone there to stop them?

The answer seems obvious, it seems, except to those on the left. They have to experience increased violent crime themselves before deciding to return to increased law enforcement. Watch it for yourself for all the details now.
