    Illinois Rep. Ryan Spain has filed House Bill 4497, a bill aimed at repealing the Safe-T Act.

    A release from the state representative said the bill was filed on the one-year anniversary of the start of a “continual crime wave” since the bill was debated and enacted by state DEMOCRATS.

    More than half the state’s elected County Sheriffs have announced their exit from the profession since passage of the Safe-T Act. Most cited attacks by DEMOCRAT politicians on law enforcement.

    “I have never seen anything more despicable than the passage of House Bill 3653 this past January,” Rep. Spain said. “The priorities of the criminal class were placed ahead of the working class and ahead of our law enforcement by Illinois DEMOCRAT lawmakers. Illinois is more dangerous than ever because of DEMOCRATS’ misplaced priorities.”

    “Across our state, in Chicago, the suburbs, and Downstate, we continue to see an unchecked rise in violent crime, and depleted law enforcement ranks who continue to be pushed aside by incumbent DEMOCRATS. Carjackings, shootings and other senseless acts of violence have Illinois residents living in constant fear of criminals. All the while, law-abiding citizens are denied access to FOID (Firearm Owners Identification) cards through endless bureaucratic delays and our law enforcement officers do not receive the support they need from our government. It has to stop.”

    Cool DEMOCRATS blame "the pandemic" for everything. It's never their policies to blame

    Hawaii State librarian asks for $1M security boost against crime wave

    The state librarian, Stacey Aldrich, said there has been disturbing behavior at several public libraries across the state.

    She said some staff and patrons were verbally abused, people have pulled knives inside, destroyed laptops, staff cars have been keyed or their tires have been slashed.

    “We’ve had stabbings outside of our libraries, we’ve had like a librarian coming into work with feces smeared on the door,” Aldrich said to the Senate Ways and Means Committee on Thursday, Jan. 13. “We’ve had staff who were attacked from behind, we had an attempted kidnapping at a parking lot and one of our libraries.”

    Aldrich said 11 libraries, in particular, have had security issues in the last year. These libraries include the following: the Hawaii State Library in Honolulu, Ewa Beach, Kapolei, Liliha, McCully, Waikiki, Library for the blind and print disabled (next to Waikiki), Wahiawa, Kahului, Hilo and Kailua-Kona.

    She asked the legislature for $1 million to improve current security and add surveillance systems too.

    “We continue to have problems with our current security guard company,” Aldrich explained. “In six months, we had over 123 incidents where we did not have a security guard and in some of our libraries, where we have to have a security guard.”

    Hawaii State Sen. Michelle Kidani said she would follow up with the comptroller on the proposal.

    Across the U.S., 2021 was a bad year for crime.

    The New York City Police Department reported a 4.1% increase in homicides over 2020.

    Chicago’s increase was 5%.

    Los Angeles suffered a 13% rise in killings.

    The nationwide homicide rate (6.5 per 100,000) was the highest in 23 years.

    The pandemic, along with dubious criminal-justice system reforms, undoubtedly made things worse.

    Woke policies and riots by incited leftists made police reluctant to interact with suspects.

    Wholesale releases from jails like New York’s Rikers Island put offenders back on the streets.

    Some states adopted bail reforms that kept offenders from jail entirely.

    It didn’t help that a new crop of Soros-backed progressive prosecutors, in misguided efforts to reduce so-called mass incarceration, declined to prosecute numerous misdemeanors and agreed to light sentences or low bail, even for violent felons like Darrell Brooks, who was out on $1,000 bond when he mowed down 62 people in Waukesha.

    The crime tsunami that began last year was driven largely by attempts to weaken the criminal-justice system. The decarceration movement has played a role. The imprisoned percentage of the population is at a 25-year low and the black imprisonment rate tumbled 29% from 2009 through 2019. But the pressure to make further reductions is strong and the recent election of district attorneys with qualms about incarcerating criminals suggests that the public in many big cities supports shrinking the system more.

    In 2021, native and immigrant Hispanics were 11% of murder suspects and 12% of the victims nationwide, but they made up more than 18% of the U.S. population. By contrast, blacks, who were 13% of the American population, were half of the homicide offenders and 56% of the victims.

    Default Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman targeted for being soft on crime



    Saying that officials can't “incarcerate our way out of” the spike in violent crime in the Twin Cities, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman wants to reboot a 1990s-era anti-crime initiative to deal with the problem. He’s calling the project MN HEALS 2.0.

    Freeman met Monday with officials from across Hennepin County, including police chiefs, prosecutors and mayors.

    The meeting came after the mayors of Maple Grove, New Hope, Crystal, Brooklyn Park and Plymouth sent a letter to Freeman.

    The letter expressed concern about carjackings and robberies that the mayors say have spilled into suburban communities from Minneapolis. The mayors wrote they are upset that "criminals are being turned back to the street in short order with little or no consequence."

    Default Job No. 1 for Colorado lawmakers — fight crime



    DEMOCRAT CONSTITUENT



    Just hours before the start of the 2022 legislative session at the Capitol on Wednesday, a suspect in an auto theft nine miles away was being pursued on foot by police.

    The suspect, who had a criminal record, turned on officers and brandished a knife. He refused their orders to drop the weapon and was shot and killed.

    It is a disturbingly common occurrence these days, with some of the usual elements: a prior offender attempting to steal a motor vehicle — turning violent. It was emblematic of an unprecedented crime wave that has been deluging Colorado.

    Colorado ranks first in the nation for auto theft.

    The state has also been awash in a wave of violence.

    A recent study found the monthly crime rate in Colorado was 15% higher in 2021 than two years earlier.

    Alongside skyrocketing crime in Colorado is the fact that the number of criminals behind bars in Colorado has been plummeting at an alarming rate.

    As a result, both parties in the General Assembly are promising to address crime; failing to do so at this point would be political suicide.

    Yet, delivering on that promise could be tricky for ruling DEMOCRATS. It is their party that ushered in the dubious “reforms” that is now driving soaring crime. And it is their own party’s “justice reform” wing that continues to view many criminals as victims who must be spared jail time at all costs.

    bs and your squalid source of fact free fiction isn't fit to be used as toilet paper. When repukes are in charge sedition and crimes against humanity looms large as a terrible disgrace on the economies too, and to which democrats are the ones who clean up atrocities created by the repuke enemy from within as in sold out prostitutes of foreign enemies and Putin's bitch tRump.

    The Republican revolt against democracy, explained in 13 charts
    The Trump years revealed a dark truth: The Republican Party is no longer committed to democracy. These charts tell the story.

    The Republican Party is the biggest threat to American democracy today. It is a radical, obstructionist faction that has become hostile to the most basic democratic norm: that the other side should get to wield power when it wins elections.

    A few years ago, these statements may have sounded like partisan Democratic hyperbole. But in the wake of the January 6 attack on the Capitol and Trump’s acquittal in the Senate on the charge of inciting it, they seem more a plain description of where we’re at as a country.

    But how deep does the GOP’s problem with democracy run, really? How did things get so bad? And is it likely to get worse?"

    Capitol riot fueled by deep network of GOP statehouse support
    Stolen election lie had backing from party’s governing class at every level, extending far beyond Congress and the White House.

    Crime explodes under the far left Democrat Socialists.

    See NYC where criminals aren't arrested.

    Default Atlanta crime in 2021 remained higher than pre-pandemic levels, data shows



    DEMOCRAT



    Reports showed there were 158 murders in Atlanta in 2021, which passed the 2020 mark.

    The two-year total of 315 murders is a 68% increase compared to the cumulative murders two years prior.

    Atlanta Police Department Chief Rodney Bryant put forth a plan to curb violent incidents after he was confirmed during Summer 2021. State lawmakers stepped in to attempt to address rising crime in the capital city.

    Reported rapes saw one of the largest year-to-year increases from 2020 to 2021.

    Centralia Man Accused of Attacking Grocery Store Employees with Knife”

    “Suspects Sought in Centralia ATM Explosion”

    “Man Killed in Chehalis Stabbing; 12-Year-Old Also Injured”

    “‘Terrifying Experience’: Chehalis Homeowner Details Dec. 16 Burglary, Cautions Neighbors”

    These are just a handful of recent headlines in The Chronicle highlighting an alarming increase in violent crimes happening not just in Lewis County, but in communities all over Washington.

    Lewis County Sheriff Rob Snaza reports a 75% increase in crimes of thefts and burglaries in Lewis County in just the last six months.

    A bad mix of recent state and federal policies are contributing to this rise in crime.

    Lax federal border security has triggered an unprecedented wave of dangerous drugs, much of which is shipped from China to Mexico and then transported through our southern border. The buying and selling of those drugs increase crime locally. In Olympia, new laws hamstringing law enforcement have emboldened criminals.

    The Biden Administration has turned its back on our southern border, which has allowed drug traffickers to smuggle record amounts of deadly drugs like fentanyl up the West Coast’s major artery, Interstate 5, and into our communities.

    At the same time, Olympia has handcuffed our police. Despite law enforcement officials sounding the alarm on poorly designed police “reform” proposals in 2021, the governor signed two massive bills into law last year that hinder police response and embolden criminals.

    For instance, one of the new state police “reform” laws, H.B. 1310, restricts an officer from detaining a person fleeing the scene of an armed robbery — even if the person matches the description of the suspect.

    Sheriff Rob Snaza has repeatedly outlined the negative impacts of these laws on the ability of police to stop crime.

    For instance, at a community meeting last year, he said HB 1310 will pose a challenge to officers who are trying to question and detain alleged perpetrators: "I have no recourse to keep that person. It used to be 'I need you to stay while we investigate this, we need to be sure what's going on. We're just going to detain you until we figure it out.’ ‘Detained’ means you're not under arrest, you're just not free to go at this point. So now we've lost that."

    And another law out of Olympia, HB 1054, restricts police from car chases, conducting routine traffic stops and impedes their use of non-lethal weapons.

    Washington state ranks dead last — 51st out of 50 states plus the District of Columbia — in law enforcement personnel per capita in the United States.

    Default The land of 10,000 lakes is flooded with crime



    DEMOCRAT


    Public safety again figures to be top of mind in St. Paul when the Minnesota Legislature convenes on Jan. 31, but this time with a new focus: violent crime.

    On Thursday, Republicans told reporters they will aim to stifle Minnesota’s Sentencing Guidelines Commission, as well as judges and liberal prosecutors in Hennepin and Ramsey counties for actions and policies they view as letting people who have committed crimes off too early or too easily.

    “The Sentencing Guidelines Commission is representative of a DEMOCRAT agenda to put criminals before victims,” said Sen. Warren Limmer, who chairs the Senate’s Judiciary and Public Safety Finance and Policy Committee. “We’re very concerned about this radical ideology.”

    Crime has risen to the top of the fold as officials report a near-record number of murders in Minneapolis and a wave of carjackings, gun violence and other crimes in the metro area.

    One of two men now accused of killing Jefferson County Sheriff Deputy Brandon Shirley had been arrested more than two dozen times.

    Metro Police Chief Erika Shields announced the indictments of Jesse Johnson, 28, and Marquis Mitchell, 18.

    Records show 30 criminal citations and arrests, including nine felonies.

    The charges include trafficking, possession of meth, possession of narcotics, auto theft and escaping home incarceration.

    There was also four charges for fleeing from police and resisting arrest.

    Johnson was already in jail when he was indicted on Shirley’s murder and had five pending cases.

    He was also charged with assault after officers said he filled a sock full of dominoes and attacked another inmate.
