Violent crime falls again, but you’d never know it from the fear mongering coming from the bleating the repubs engage in.
Maybe in those nice safe red states where they protect you from the murdering rapists being sent by the millions from the prisons of the South American countries, but I just watched Furiosa which I am told is a faithful representation of current day California so I know better.

Republicans when crime rates rise: Look what the Democrats did.

Republicans when crime rates fall: Lies. People aren't reporting crimes anymore.

Funny how the crime stats are real when crime goes up and fake when crime goes down.

It's also funny how Republicans are trying to memory hole the huge crime surge that happened under Trump.

Old article, but sometimes the truth is in the middle.

I couldn't tell from the newer article if LA/NYC are now reporting their crime stats or not.

NYC at least reports its crime stats independently of the FBI and they also show a huge decline in murder, continuing a multi-year trend.

So the idea that these numbers are somehow wrong because they don't include NYC is just dumb people looking for reasons to ignore reality.

Our constitution has no prohibitions against morons getting elected to office.

Of course not but nominating a crazy one in a state without a partisan lean that favors you is the road to defeat.

Crime must always be high because:

--scapegoating "the others" into having an enemy to blame all your problems
--selling guns because freedom requires a healthy gun industry.

This is basically all that conservatives think about. There is little more capacity left in their brains.

I always find it funny that people say they want crime to be lower but when they get exactly their wish instead of being happy they get mad and insist the thing they wanted isn't true.

This is because nothing can replace lost self respect except a spiritual journey to get it back and that's not happening because without self respect and some minimum self awareness people feel they deserve their misery and live instead with the secondary ego satisfactions of getting even. The result of that fear of self awareness also means that any real spiritual path will get shit on as worthless before knowledge from any who have recovered can spread. All paths to esoteric knowledge are deemed fake. Always the greatest danger for any seeking truth is the assumption they know what it is they are looking for. One reason only the meek will inherit the earth and why almost nobody even knows what that means.

But shopping cart mafia crimes are up 437%...
Just the other day I went to Lowe’s and was almost caught in the cross fire between three different crews competing for territory. Barely made it out alive. There must have been 30 bodies in the parking lot and they were using GAU-8s , aks, m-60s, 9 mm, 357s and sling shots. Shit was real but the lame stream media and dems refuse to discuss it.
