There were two mass-shootings on Sunday: One in Chicago, the other in Baltimore. So what is the cause?
In Baltimore the poverty rate is down, unemployment is down. In Chicago, public school spender (per pupil) increased a bit more than 20 percent in the past decade.
So, why the crime?
The more likely culprits of elevated violence: (1) sharp cuts in incarceration, (2) prosecutorial retreat from low-level offenses and drug laws and (3) the alienation of each city’s most capable guardians: cops.
A third of Baltimore homicide suspects in 2017 committed their alleged offenses while on probation or parole, despite having an average of nearly 10 prior arrests. In Chicago, those arrested for shootings or homicides in 2015-16 had an average of 12 prior arrests.
This news ties in with the increased calls for disarming, or even eliminating police entirely, ending cash bail, and so on. The war on law enforcement rolls on, with very predictable results
If this piece of filth had been locked the Hell away, as he should have been, this girl would be alive, her family would not be going through the anguish they must now endure. Tell me, how hard is it for legislators to write laws that lock people like this evil bastard away?
If what I suspect is true, here we have a young woman of color being victimized by a serial offender because turning violent criminals loose is what a bunch of idiot liberals consider “social justice.” People should be angry, and there needs to be some serious reporting on this. More violence against women that feminists won’t notice, for some reason.
Have I mentioned before how Leftism destroys everything it touches? Add this beautiful young girl, and her family to the list of destruction
However, carjackers aren’t necessarily a particularly bright bunch. After all, it doesn’t take a master criminal to stick a gun in someone’s face and take their car. This isn’t Gone In 60 Seconds we’re talking about here.
No, it’s a violent assault on an individual with the potential for the shedding of innocent blood.
A carjacker died after he accidentally blasted himself in the chest while trying to smash a window with the butt of his shotgun, an inquest has heard.
Officers investigating the death of Reece Ramsey-Johnson said they were satisfied there was ‘no third party involvement’ as they closed the probe into his killing.
Witnesses who saw the 22-year-old dying from gunshot wounds in the street outside a Lloyds bank in Sydenham on Sunday, September 8, said his own gun may have gone off when he used to to hit a car window.
Yes, this did happen in the UK, all those gun bans there really stopped this guy
Whenever I see Newsom’s image on TV, I know that some form of idiocy is about to be reported. I know this because, well, Governor Newsom is the walking definition of a knuckle-dragging Marxist. And, again, just this morning, Governor Goober has come through once again
California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, on Tuesday signed a bill that no longer requires any “able-bodied person 18 years of age or older” in the state to help an officer who requests assistance during an arrest.
The Sacramento Bee reported that the old law, the California Posse Comitatus Act of 1872, was common in the country’s early days, but Sen. Bob Hertzberg, a Los Angeles Democrat who sponsored the bill, called the old law a “vestige of a bygone era.” The law was employed to help catch runaway slaves, the report said.
The old law made it a misdemeanor that carried a fine of up to $1,000 for refusing to help a police officer who requested assistance during an arrest.
The report said Newsom did not issue a statement after signing the bill.
The Left REALLY has it in for law enforcement it seems. What good will come from this bill? Maybe more bad people will evade arrest, and commit more felonies? Maybe they will commit violent felonies which Gov. Newsom can blame on guns. He certainly loves doing that. Maybe Marxifornia can then pass more gun control measures even though the many gun control acts they have passed have done nothing to stop mass shootings, armed robberies, etc.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has signed off on legislation banning schools in the state from suspending students for disruptive behavior.
Senate Bill 419, signed into law by Newsom on Monday, will amend the California Education Code to prohibit public and charter schools in the state from suspending students in grades 4-8 for “disrupting school activities or otherwise willfully defying the valid authority of those school personnel engaged in the performance of their duties.”
Existing law already prohibited schools from suspending or recommending expulsion for students enrolled in kindergarten or in grades 1-3 for such actions.
The legislation is slated to take effect at the start of July 2020 and will prohibit the suspension of students in grades 6-8 , specifically, for such acts until July 1, 2025.
Without discipline, and respect for teacher authority, a school cannot teach the students that DO behave. But, social justice warriors like Newsom care not because DISPROPORTIONATE
“Because it is so subjective, suspensions based on Section 48900(k) raise serious concerns about their disproportionate impact on students of color and other vulnerable student groups- including students with disabilities and/or those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and/or gender non-conforming,” the organization said.
The group added that research “confirms that there is even greater disproportionality for students in these groups suspended for low level, subjective offenses, like defiance/disruption, compared to higher level, more objective offenses.”
In short, this bill does not ban punishment for the good students, who are punished by having to tolerate the crap the unruly students engage in does it? No, of course not, good kids just have to put up with it. Guess their “privilege” must be held against them
A Richmond man pleaded guilty Wednesday to torturing to death a pit bull, named Tommie by rescuers.
Jyahshua A. Hill, 20, of the 1300 block of St. Peter Street, was arrested about three months after Tommie was found by the Richmond Fire Department in Abner Clay Park, less than a mile from where Hill lived.
The dog, a male brindle, had been tied to a chain-link fence, doused with a flammable liquid and set ablaze, Richmond police said. Tommie died Feb. 15, five days after he was discovered in the park. He suffered burns to 40 percent of his body, according to the Richmond Animal Care and Control, which cared for the dog.
