Apparently living amid a city that is fraught with crime is comfortable for a lot of people in San Francisco, at least according to one of the most leftist Mayors in the nation. You know things are bad when the Mayor of San Francisco, who ran on a platform to remove cops from the streets, starts shouting about the “bull**it that has destroyed the city”, and proclaiming that rampant lawlessness needs to stop.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed delivered a statement yesterday that is the exact opposition of her social program message from the past few years. Apparently, the rise in random gangs of looters destroying the city and organized retail theft has become problematic for the politicians who hold power over the city.
Quite a remarkable shift in position, however, the transparency of motive is clear. Breed’s faux anger and conveniently new frustration over the crime surge in the city were on full display at her noon news conference where she changed the rules of the safari park. WATCH:
Democrats are worried about how their anti-police position has brought the criminal chickens home to roost. Politically, Democrats -writ large- are trying to distance themselves from the crime their policies have created. National polls show voters are correctly attributing the rise in crime to Democrats. Thus, they need to change direction quickly.
SAN FRANCISCO – After months of viral videos showing deteriorating conditions on the streets of San Francisco, including smash-and-grab robberies and open-air drug use, the city’s mayor has moved to implement a new public safety approach to curb criminal behavior. Her move could signal a recognition by the Democratic establishment that crime may prove a potent issue in upcoming elections.
Speaking at City Hall on Tuesday, San Francisco Mayor London Breed lamented “all the bullshit that has destroyed our city,” including thefts at high-end stores like Louis Vuitton, rampant vehicle break-ins and a seeming flood of the potent drug fentanyl. All of it has been captured on video, making for regular Fox News segments and rising consternation among Democrats who see crime as a potential weakness in next year’s midterm elections. (read more)
That last bullet point is a little funny, no?…
I mean what good were the city CCTV cameras if the police were not allowed to use them?
Were the cameras installed so the city could just randomly document criminals running amok for posterity?
