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.
Leave it to The Nation to go all Ape-Schitt:
‘Cops lynched Tyre Nichols because they knew they could’
“All police, regardless of race or background, are employed to uphold a system conceived by white people, for white people, that operates to oppress black people.”
Who else but the Marxist propagandist Elie Mystal?
“The killing of Tyre Nichols is an indictment of the entire political System”
At The Nation, everything is an indictment of the entire political system.
The local power struggle mirrors the divide over the national chairman
Ronna McDaniel has done the very best she could do under circumstances that are not favorable to the RNC and has managed to build up trust between the non-Trump and pro-Trump factions within the GOP in a way very few others could thread the needle and build the relationships.” …
The problem is not really Ronna and the RNC but at the state level. They point to the problems at the state GOP level in Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. One committeewoman, who is not a Trump fan at this point, told me, “Ronna can’t fix Kelli Ward, but Ronna is fantastic at mitigating those types.”
