Major Cities Are Disintegrating Due to Crime

Major Cities are deteriorating due to crime. The problems caused by defunding and attacking the police are manifest.

According to the Santa Monica Police Department, officers were called to The Real Real on Nov. 27 at about 10:55 a.m. after four masked suspects entered the luxury resale store and forced their way past the front door security.

Once inside, they used hammers to smash multiple display cases containing brand-name purses worth over $50,000. The suspects then fled the scene in a waiting vehicle. It was another smash-and-grab robbery.

In August 2023, a rise in organized retail thefts prompted SMPD to join the Los Angeles Police Department in the formation of the Los Angeles County Organized Retail Crime Taskforce (ORCT).

The Santa Monica Daily Press noted other crimes in a sidebar:

The press didn’t mention the boatloads of anonymous illegal aliens pulling up on Santa Monica’s shores.

Even the super-wealthy of Santa Monica will not be exempt from what their policies have wrought.

“I voted for Karen Bass. I voted for Biden. I voted for Gavin Newsom. I’m sick of it”.

City leaders are now trying to work with police departments to prevent crime just after trying to defund them.

DEFUND, THEN WORK WITH THEM?

D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) is expected to announce a new “real-time crime center” on Thursday, where police will monitor live-stream video from hundreds of closed-circuit television cameras across the city.

Not yet completed, the crime center will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is one component of Bowser’s strategy to confront crimes such as carjackings, robberies, and homicides that are soaring in the District this year.

The Washington Post reports that the announcement comes as robberies and homicides are soaring in the District, and a rise in carjackings has left people across the Washington region on edge. Bowser’s administration is under increasing pressure to curtail violence and restore a sense of safety to the city.

“The goal of this is to respond faster and more efficiently when crime happens in our community,” Bowser said at the Thursday announcement.

The [Anti-] American Civil Liberties Union of D.C. immediately raised concerns about how authorities might respond to what they see on video and whether it could lead to anyone being illegally targeted.

As a long time resident of The Peoples Republic of Santa Monica and a neighbor of Jane Fonda I can attest that those who remain are responsible for the horrendous crimes that are . There was not an instant it could not have been stopped, but the majority of the denizens of this city were convinced they could create a paradise Lenin, Stalin, Mao failed and they would succeed. They deserve every consequence of their deliberate actions.

Law and order is the basis of any society. Democrats are opposed to these concepts.

Most of the major cities are being destroyed by blacks. The endless murders and violence and nobody has the guts to tell them to stop it and stop acting like savages. These people know they can get away with crime so the keep doing it. We’ve given away our cities and now we are giving away our country. At some point maybe we will stand up and fight but that will probably be too late. How do you take back a major city and make it relatively crime free without offending the race that is destroying it? You can’t.

Almost all of these cities have black mayors, black police chiefs and often black DAs, too. You mean this didn’t solve their criminal problem?? I’m shocked! California, in particular, has been a stupid joke for a long time. The intelligent people among the middle class evacuated years ago. You’re only witnessing what’s left behind. It’s like driving past the scene of a very large accident. You know what caused it, but it’s too late to fix it. The permanent democrat-majority makes opposition voting truly irrelevant. Don’t vote. Just pack your belongings. The sane people have already moved away. Many are now living safer, more affordable and better lives in red states, now.

Cali is facing today a 70 Billion budget deficit and its only going to grow to an unsustainable 100 billion next year. All services will have to be cut, except welfare and subsidies which are sacrosanct.

I agree but in the case of Santa Monica it was white, commie liberals who destroyed the city.
