Ever since the riots of 2020, crime has skyrocketed across the board.
Whether it is homicide, theft, or sex crimes, our nation’s streets have become war zones.
Now the FBI director is sounding the alarm over what’s happening across the country.
One thing is for certain, there has never been a more dangerous time to be a law enforcement officer in this nation.
Nearly every day you hear about a police officer being tragically gunned down by a career criminal who was released early as a result of some brain-dead left-wing social justice reform.
This is due, in part, to many states and localities completely rewriting their criminal justice policies in order to make it easier for career criminals to get back on the streets.
All in the name of “social justice.”
These “reforms” only serve to benefit criminals and the people who lose the most are everyday citizens and police officers.
In fact, crimes against police officers are reaching levels this nation has not seen in a long time, if ever.
That is not too surprising when you recall all of those vile chants and cheers protestors echoed in 2020 about “frying cops like bacon,” and “all cops are bastards.”
These violent chants are killing police officers and destroying our communities.
Things have gotten so bad that the FBI is now speaking out about the alarming rise in police officer deaths.
Christopher Wray, the acting Director of the FBI claimed the other day that “murders of police officers rose 59% in 2021. The total murder rate rose 29% last year, and the U.S. lost 73 police officers to such attacks in 2021.”
Wray went on to claim, “violence against law enforcement in this country is one of the biggest phenomena that I think doesn’t get enough attention,”
With that information in mind, it is not possible to deny that criminals feel more emboldened than ever to slaughter police officers.
Violent movements such as BLM are largely to blame, especially given their advocacy for violence.
The best way to put an end to these mass murders is by reversing many of the Democrats’ pro-crime policies that have been passed over the past couple of years across the country.
These include defunding the police, “bail reform,” and other laws that hinder the work of law enforcement.
