DC Mayor Muriel Boyser, Vocal BLM Supporter, Presides over Rise in Violent Crime

Objectivity 1.9 | Credibility 4.2 | Relevance 4.8

Democratic mayors across the nation still seem mystified by the rising wave of violent crime in their cities.  Likewise, mainstream media outlets have often blamed the precipitous rise in murder rates on the disruption of the pandemic or the continued shuttering of many schools and businesses.  However, the truth is obvious even to the most casual observer: Violent crime is on the rise because police forces have been de-funded and disrespected in major Democratic cities at the same time that pro-criminal policies have been implemented.  This article about Muriel Boyser’s failed polices illustrates a key take-away from the last year: that Democratic support of the BLM riots has de-stabilized cities, undermined community policing, and resulted in more tragic deaths of Americans of all racial backgrounds.
