We are losing law enforcement officers at an unsustainable rate. Officers have left or are leaving the profession in significant numbers. Milwaukee police say they experienced a spike in retirements over the summer and early fall.
Madison’s acting Chief of Police Vic Wahl recently said that Madison has faced a bigger than average number of departures. He attributed these retirements, in part, to “the negative media narrative about policing and a vocal activist community that is anti-police.” …
It seems intuitive that a smaller police presence leads to increased crime, since criminals will believe their likelihood of getting caught decreases. And that’s what the data reflect.
One study found that an increased police presence reduces robbery, larceny, auto theft, and perhaps even murder. Another study discovered that a greater police presence reduces violent crime and property crime.
Hunting RINOs with a sociopath
“Eric Greitens, a sociopath Senate candidate in Missouri, released a video in which he [posed as] hunting “RINOs.” You can watch it here. A lot has been said about the grotesqueness of his ad, particularly in the wake of two mass shootings. … It’s dumb on pro-Second Amendment grounds. It depicts a bunch of military types conducting what is effectively a no-knock raid on a citizen’s home. Such affronts to civil liberties are an outrage to serious supporters of the Second Amendment.
“Second, the people Greitens wants to murder (metaphorically at least) aren’t guilty of any crimes, they’re simply political opponents … fellow Republicans. …
“We’re through the looking glass when supporting the January 6 committee is deemed tantamount to supporting full Stalinism, but criticizing a President who thought the mob’s heart was in the right place when it wanted to hang his vice president for not wanting to help steal an election is invalid.” — Jonah Goldberg in The Dispatch.
