Are Democrats getting smart about crime?

Have they learned from Lori Lightfoot?

How else to explain Joe Biden turning his back on the progressive movement to decriminalize crime?

The President is siding with Republicans who want to nullify the City of Washington’s attempt to dumb down criminal prosecution. Congress can do that because, ultimately, it controls the District of Columbia. The city council wants to eliminate most mandatory sentences and reduce penalties for violent offenses such as carjackings and robberies. Trial by jury for … misdemeanors! This, only weeks after a member of Congress was assaulted in the city.

No less than James Madison himself, in Federalist No. 43, demanded the “indispensable necessity of complete authority at the seat of government” lest “its proceedings be interrupted with impunity.” He remembered that, in 1783, revolutionary war soldiers attacked the Continental Congress in Philadelphia demanding back pay. The governor of Pennsylvania refused to intervene. (But then, so did Tr•mp.)

→ “Progressive Democrats are furious about the message this sends on criminal justice reform,” CNN Reports.

→ MSNBC plays the race card.

Do you know Kayley Meissner or Grace Martin? Let us know!

Doing their cause no favors

As if on cue, over 100 Leftists changed into black clothing and attacked a police and fire training center being constructed outside Atlanta on Sunday 03-05-23. They threw rocks, bricks, and molotov cocktails at police defending the site. (Will Joy Reid find her own Ray Epps?)

Twenty-three of these idiots were arrested for domestic terrorism. Only two list Georgia as their home state. Two are from Wisconsinapparently Madison, as far as we can determine. Atlanta Police give their names as Grace Martin, age 22, and Kayley Meissner, age 19. Others are from all over the U.S. — Canada, even France. One of them, Thomas Webb Jurgens, is an attorney for the Southern Poverty Law Center.

To Fox News, the attorney general of Georgia described those arrested as part of a “national network, an international group of people that are organized to come to our state to undermine a public safety training center.” 

Demonstrations at the 85-acre property in DeKalb County secured for a $90 million police and fire training facility have been going on for months. Sunday’s incident marked a “significant escalation” both in the level of violence and the number of individuals involved in the attack.

They want untrained cops?

Heather Mac Donald makes the case that Memphis TN, struggling with an attrition of police officers, scraped the bottom of the barrel to hire the poorly qualified culprits responsible for killing Tyre Nichols.

The Nichols beating is not the product of racism; it is the tragic culmination of the very narrative being offered to explain that beating. The idea that policing is racist, both in its treatment of black suspects and in its hiring of black officers, has led to manpower loss, a lowering of standards, and a drop in proactive enforcement. The resulting increase in crime then puts more downward pressure on hiring standards in order to try to replenish the depleted ranks. Unable to compensate for officer attrition, police departments are left without enough well-trained sergeants and lieutenants to supervise officers who maybe should never have been hired in the first place.

Since 2014, Black Lives Matter agitation has decimated police ranks and driven away potential applicants who do not want to be presumed racist from their first day on the job.

What killed Tyre Nichols

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Guessing even Tammy Baldwin will vote with Ron Johnson on overturning the Washington D.C. city council.

Still want to make D.C. a state, Democrats?

    Every time it gets close to elections the politicians change their talking points to get elected. Look at any of the past elections. Look at their actions when no elections are near not their words.

      Indeed. I had a family member vote for Mandela Barnes because they said he sounded reasoned and intelligent at a rally they attended. If you base your vote on what these morons say on the campaign trail, you are a dupe. Past behavior is the best indicator of future behavior.

    No one should be surprised that the senile old blowhard in the White House is trying to peddle the ludicrous notion that he’s suddenly a law and order guy. He’s spent 50 years in Washington perfecting the art of changing his tune depending on what direction the political winds are blowing at any given moment (that and taking every opportunity to kiss black a$$, most recently in Selma). As for the two Antifa chicks from Madison arrested for “peacefully protesting” in Atlanta, I saw their identical twins–at least a couple dozen of them–while strolling through campus this afternoon. Their parents are most likely tenured professors at UW-Madison immensely proud of their daughters’ achievements.

    I would much, much rather deal with Police Officers who have reason to believe that I have broken the law of the land than deal with the the local hood that believes I have stepped on their authority.

    Fact is that more black people are murdered by other black people than are killed by the Police.

      Blacks kill blacks. Fact.

      It’s not even close!

      A Grim AND IGNORED Body Count

      FUN FACT: ~10% of White and Hispanic homicides are by LE…bLack homicide by LE? 3%.

    Cant walk down State Street after dark, but you can “ambulance-chase” Kia and Hyundai and soon get overpriced grocery store sushi on Park Street. Good job, Satya!

    I see that the city of Madison also plans to sue auto makers for failing to put more anti-theft devices on their cars. Do you have a link describing the Council’s desire to decrease the penalties for things like carjacking? The two measures should always be highlighted side by side.


    • Gary L. Kriewald says:

      Leave it to Madison to blame car manufacturers while ignoring their own soft-on-crime policies and social media companies that helpfully broadcast detailed instructions on how to hot-wire Korean vehicles.
