Two Powerful “Defund/Reform the Police” Dem Pols Are Carjacked

Two prominent Democrats who’ve supported “reforming” or “defunding” police got a dose of what it’s like to be terrorized and victimized by thugs who have little fear of facing justice.  They experienced one of the fastest-growing crimes in the nation.  Both were carjacked.

“Wednesday afternoon, at around 2:45 p.m., Democrat Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon was carjacked at gunpoint in FDR Park following a meeting at that location,” Scanlon’s office said in a statement. “The Congresswoman was physically unharmed.

Police say Scanlon was approached by two Black males, aged approximately 20-30, as she walked to her vehicle before they demanded she hands them the keys. Scanlon handed over the keys to her blue 2017 Acura MDX and one of the suspects drove away in it.   Scanlon’s phone and purse were also stolen by the attackers.

Just the night before Illinois’ Democratic state Senate Majority Leader Kimberly Lightford and her husband were carjacked in Broadview, Illinois, in the Chicago area, where crime has been surging.

“First and foremost, I am thankful that my husband and I are alive and physically unharmed,” Lightford said in a statement. “I am trying to process the trauma of what happened.”  She and millions of other Americans.

Lightford took comfort in the “quick and thorough response” of the Broadview Police Department”.  How nice!

Representative Scanlon, who had previously tweeted “We have seen too many lives taken and communities devastated by police brutality and racial profiling….” apparently had NO trouble identifying her gun-wielding assailants as “two Black males”, when HER life was threatened and HER property stolen.

Scanlon co-sponsored a bill the Hill reported would “make it easier for state and local governments to defund the police by instead funding mental health services….”.  Think a social worker might have defused that “crisis”?

Both Scanlon and Lightford have been staunch supporters of police reforms in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May 2020.

Think they’ll change their tunes now?  We wouldn’t count on it.

OH!!! but they got the police out after them until the perps were nabbed. I wonder if they’ll get out on cheap bail?? Of course the rest of us peons have to make an insurance claim. These are some despicable repugnant representatives of the people.

Where I live car jacking is unheard of. Almost everyone is armed and criminals know it. If you want to see how we take care of business in rural America then Google: Sheriff Judd provides update on Uber driver who shot, killed man | News Conference, and I’m not going to answer that’: Sheriff Grady Judd gets in heated back-and-forth with reporter. Liberal Idiots are in danger when they bring their Big City Nonsense to to rural America. Here we are civilized and don’t put up with Liberal nonsense. Big Blue Cities have a crime problem because they tolerate criminals and criminal behavior. I suspect most Liberals are criminals at heart anyway which is why they are soft on crime. If you like crime then live in a Big Blue City. Personally, I don’t like crime!

Politicians have changed the rules of engagement over the last 50 or 60 years to where career criminals get off easy and “Joe Public” is created like a career criminal. One size fits all policing by a bunch of political police chiefs and sheriffs looking for headlines does not work. Well, Sheriff Judd gets headlines, but it’s when he is showing the average citizen standing their ground. We would have a lot less crime if there were more Sheriffs who held regular news conferences (even Podcast) on a regular basis and applauding the people who defend themselves. Sheriff Judd even airs his Department’s dirty Laundry. We need a lot more Sheriffs like Sheriff Judd who not only have a lot of common sense, but are willing to have regular Media appearances to let criminals know their Office will not tolerate crime. The real point Sheriff Judd makes is that there are people in his county who will defend themselves and he will back them. Criminals are much more afraid of The People when the Government allows them to exercise their God Given right to protect themselves. Sheriff Judd understands that when seconds count his Officers are only minutes away and individuals have to have the right to protect themselves. A lot of rural Sheriffs understand that too, but aren’t as vocal about it, but they should be!
