Are liberal cities actually REVERSING course on crime policies?!

Are liberal cities actually REVERSING course on crime policies?!

For some inexplicable reason, liberal cities thought decriminalizing petty crime, defunding the police, and softening up the justice system would somehow lead to improvements.

Well, it didn’t. While they might be surprised that their woke policies failed miserably, Sara Gonzales is certainly not shocked.

On Tuesday this week, frustrated San Francisco voters “overwhelmingly voted in support of several ballot measures aimed to quell the spike in crime and drugs,” reports Sara.

“They voted for Measure E — to expand police powers by making it easier for officers to pursue suspects and provide the police force with new cameras and drones, and Measure F, which will require drug screenings for adults receiving welfare.”

Both Measure E and Measure F passed with a “60%” approval rate.

“What a crazy, crazy shift,” says Blaze head researcher and writer Jason Buttrill. “It was just a couple of years ago when they were ushering in Chesa Boudin as the radical DA,” who’s “basically a Marxist.”

San Francisco isn’t alone in its backtracking either.

“Oregon also is re-criminalizing drugs,” says Jason, and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul is “now putting the National Guard in the subway.”

While these reversals in crime-related policies are certainly encouraging, Sara can’t help but wonder if it’s “too late to put the genie back in the bottle,” especially considering Biden’s open border policies.

Millions of illegal immigrants have been ushered into this country, and yet many liberal politicians continue to say that “there is not a rise in immigrant crime.”

“Ask the family of Laken Riley if there’s a rise in immigrant crime,” says Jason.
