(UnitedVoice.com) – Over the weekend, Liberal cities advocating for “defund the police” initiatives experienced violence and bloodshed. Chicago, Seattle, New York and Minneapolis are shining examples of the uptick in crime.
In Chicago, 11 people were killed, while another 67 were wounded. In Seattle, one person was murdered in the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone as police are prevented from entering the area. One Liberal councilmember, Kshama Sawant, blamed the shooting as a potential “right-wing attack” without any evidence supporting the claim. New York City has seen a 79% increase in murders since May. Far-left wing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) posted her sadness at the violence in Minneapolis.
It breaks my heart to see another senseless act of violence in Minneapolis.
Our city has been through so much, and we must promote peace by putting an end to gun violence.https://t.co/NRQRXhewwf

In another harrowing story, the owner of Colossal Cupcakes in Cleveland, OH, told Fox & Friends in an exclusive interview that she was receiving threats for cooperating with police. Her store was looted and destroyed on May 30 during protests over George Floyd’s death. At the time, she was in the store, hiding with four employees in a locked bathroom. She plans to reopen the store but said groups are warning her they’re going to destroy it again.
In the wake of the movement against police, morale is at an all-time low. Police are threatening to quit at alarming numbers as tensions worsen between them and politicians. In Washington, DC, approximately 75% of police are considering leaving the force. Police in Minneapolis, Atlanta, Buffalo, and South Florida have been resigning.
As the movement against police grows, it’s leaving citizens feeling more vulnerable. Across the country, gun sales are up as people have to defend themselves and their property.
